Why Choose Us?

Here's a story from one of our happy customers...

I had an emergency, needing a place to park a truck and trailer until the new buyer picked it up from Canada. An acquaintance of mine suggested George, the owner of San Diego Heavy Truck and Equipment Repair in Lakeside. They immediately accommodated me and made space for my full sized custom racing semi trailer and long wheelbase tractor. During the 2-3 weeks that my rig was there, I discovered how much more they could do for someone that owns heavy equipment...from IFTA/DOT inspections on heavy trucks to maintenance, repair and fabrication on trucks, trailers and every imaginable piece of heavy equipment you can imagine, this is the "go to" place! Their prices are reasonable and fair. Their knowledge is extensive and their work is done right. They are also friendly to deal with. I always feel that they genuinely care about my needs.
