TravelCenters of America Opens Two Bay Truck Service Center in Columbia, South Carolina

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has announced the opening of a newly built TA Truck Service facility located at I-20, Exit 71, (7400 Wilson Blvd.) in Columbia, South Carolina. The truck service repair facility offers two service bays and is open to serve customers 24/7/365.

Highly trained ASE- and TIA-certified technicians are on staff at this location and throughout the TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube network. The TA and Petro Truck Service Network specializes in providing light duty repair, brakes, electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections and RoadSquad™ emergency road call services. All TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube service centers now carry full lines of tires from Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, and Samson.

“Our Columbia, SC, truck service center is the fifth brand new truck service facility we have built in 2015. Our commitment to truck service centers starts with our commitment to professional drivers looking for a one stop facility to meet all their driving needs. We get them in and out, and back on the road safely,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “Drivers know they can count on the highly skilled ASE and TIA certified technicians at TA Truck Service and Petro: Lube centers that offer the highest quality products services in the industry and are open 24/7/365. It’s no wonder we are Voted Best by drivers year after year.”

TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube once again dominated the most recent ‘Voted Best’ survey in the Truck Repair categories, with driver preference being 4 to 1 in their favor for Best Overall Maintenance Shops, 7 to 1 for Most Competent Technicians, 7 to 1 for Most Complete Shops on the Interstate, 4 to 1 for Best Roadside Assistance, and 7 to 1 for Most Trusted to Perform the Job Right. These results are based on an independent TA and Petro survey of Overdrive magazine readers conducted in the fall of 2014. The ratios depict professional driver preference for TA and Petro versus the next closest truck stop brand.
