On the road in Northern British Columbia, truck drivers must have access to service options along their journey. Velocity Truck Centres is redefining the landscape of truck service and maintenance. With our advanced techniques and customer-centric approach, we are setting a new standard in the industry. 

Express Assessment: Reducing Downtime Significantly

Our Express Assessment is a standout feature of Velocity Truck Centre’s service offerings. Our commitment is to provide a preliminary diagnosis and communication to the customer within two hours of the truck’s arrival. Our rapid response approach minimizes downtime and gets trucks back on the road faster, a critical factor in the trucking industry.

We pride ourselves on our team of fully certified, factory-trained technicians. We offer the longest service hours in the business, ensuring that help is always at hand when needed.
