The old TA Truck Service facility at Candler, North Carolina had seen better days. The decision to remodel or build new was quite easy, but shutting down operations was not an option. Too many customers relied on TA Candler for truck service. The decision was made to tear down the old facility and build the new one in phases, always keeping two bays available for service. Under the direction of Truck Service General Manager Chris Spaulding, the new, fully operational 5,000-sq.-ft. building at Exit 37 on I-40 speaks for itself.

“The newly remodeled truck service center in Candler offers our customers more convenience for their truck service needs,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters of America. “We are excited and eager to showcase our new TA Truck Service brand and offer customers more quality, more choices and great customer service. These continuing investments in new, remodeled and upgraded facilities support our commitment to providing the best shop and road service on the Interstate.”

The new Candler truck service center is open 24/7/365 and includes four shop bays, two pits, and three service trucks. A complete range of preventive maintenance services and light-duty repairs are provided. Service specialties include tires, brakes, electrical, wheel alignment and tire balancing, air conditioning, inspections, and other truck and trailer repairs.

RoadSquad™ emergency road call services are provided along the I-40 and I-26 corridors. TA Candler is also an authorized express service and light-duty repair center for the Freightliner and Western Star ServicePoint program, in cooperation with Daimler Trucks North America.

“The truck service team is excited about the new Candler TA Truck Service facility and the equipment upgrades that will better serve our customers,” said Spaulding. “Along with continuous training, we’re well prepared to handle newly introduced technologies. Our eShop Electronic Solutions package supports the technology initiatives of fleet customers and owner operators.”
