Basil Ford is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of its stand-alone Commercial Truck center located at 1620 Walden Ave, two doors down from Basil Ford. This location is one-of-a-kind for the Western New York area as it is solely focused on the sales and service of special use vehicles, from Transit Connects to motor homes to everything in-between.
The Grand Opening is being held July 15th from 11am-3pm. There will be a Chiavettas cookout with food provided, Ford Motor Company representatives, as well as truck experts from Unicell, and Ford Senior Master Technicians on hand answering questions and giving demonstrations.
At the forefront of the cutting edge design of the shop is the heated floors in the service shop. Using recycled used motor oil, the floor serves several purposes. With large doors opening and closing throughout the day as part of normal workflow, this helps keep the technicians warm during the harsh winter months. It also maintains a steadier temperature meaning the building is using less energy to heat the shop.
The service facility at the Commercial Truck Shop is above and beyond any other facility in the area. With 8 bays designed specifically for large vehicles, with 4 lifts and many which lift 30,000 pounds. This means owners of large vehicles, RV’s, motor homes, plows, dump trucks etc. can receive service within days, versus waiting weeks at other shops.
“We realize you depend on your vehicle for your livelihood, so we’ve designed it to fast track service,” says John Hayek, Service Director. “The building was designed to get vehicles in and out in a fast and efficient way so you can get back in your truck and back in business quicker. Our techs, many of which are Senior Master Certified, have over 1,000 hours of training, so we’ll fix it right the first time,” he continued.
