MESA, Ariz., Aug. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Truck Showrooms has announced the opening of its third dealership location, its first in the American West. The new dealership is located at 1645 N. 46th St., Mesa, AZ. Already having covered the Southeast with locations in Gulfport, MS and Atlanta, GA, American Truck Showrooms plans to make their truck rental programs available to a new market of drivers in a previously untapped region.

American Truck Showrooms provides certified pre-owned trucks with a "rental with option to purchase" option to drivers from any corner of the United States with no credit check. Rick Carpenter, the general manager of the Phoenix branch, considers the new location a significant strategic step forward: "The location is ideal for the high traffic of trucks using the I-10 Freeway. Its location is very suitable for the trucks moving cargo North and South up the Western United States. It also is very suitable for the trucks moving cargo from California all the way through Florida."

The company has said that the location in Mesa's Falcon Field neighborhood also provides access to drivers from beyond the Southwest due to its proximity to I-10, the major interstate corridor between California and Florida. The freight transported on I-10, which runs between Santa Monica, CA and Jacksonville, FL, is estimated to be worth $1.38 trillion per year. The branch is also conveniently near State Route 202 (Loop 202), the beltway connecting the Phoenix Metro Area including Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, and the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

American Truck Showrooms centers its business around helping truck drivers become owner-operators of their own trucks. Drivers working with any of the three ATS locations receive assistance with insurance, compliance, and repairs to make operating a truck more manageable. The late-model pre-owned trucks available include Peterbilt, Kenworth, Freightliner, and Volvo, all of which come with a 50/50 repair warranty. Carpenter says that "By strategically locating a branch in Phoenix, we now cover both coasts and the whole southern United States. This is optimal for our towing and 50/50 warranty program that we offer."
