OKLAHOMA CITY --Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores continues to add services to appeal to professional drivers. Most recently, it's added diesel oil-change facilities to more than 130 Love’s Truck Tire Care locations nationwide. Since its introduction in 2008, Love’s Truck Tire Care units have developed into full-service maintenance operations.
“Routine maintenance is vital for our customers,” said Dan Jensen, director of tire sales and services for Love’s. “Our customers have been pleased with the tire and light mechanical services we’ve offered, and they’ve asked for more. Our job is to help them maximize as much downtime as possible. By offering preventative oil-change services for professional drivers, we are providing them with helpful maintenance while they’re already stopped for a meal or a break.”
Love’s has more than 270 Truck Tire Care facilities. The company continues to add oil-change capabilities to existing locations. Love’s expects the majority of locations to be oil-change ready by the beginning of 2018.
Last year, Love’s started performing light mechanical work, such as wheel-end, suspension, air-conditioning and exhaust repairs and more. Nearly all Love’s locations with a tire-care center now offer light mechanical services.
Additionally, Love’s started manufacturing its own retread tires last year. The company now operates four retread facilities, in Kingman, Ariz.; Atlanta; Plainfield, Ind.; and Grand Prairie, Texas. Retreads are completed and inspected at the facilities before being shipped to Love’s Truck Tire Care locations nationwide.
“With the addition of our retread, light mechanical and oil-change offerings, we’re now a true full-service provider of tires and other services for professional drivers,” said Jensen.
A Love’s Mobile Training Lab and retread samples are on display at the Love’s booth at the Great American Trucking Show Aug. 24-26 in Dallas. Professional drivers who bring their My Love Rewards cards to booth 12005 to learn more about the products and services provided by Love’s Truck Tire Care can earn 500 points.
Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores is based in Oklahoma City. Founded in 1964, Love’s has more than 430 locations in 41 states.
