House of Trucks Celebrates 25 Years

WILLOWBROOK, IL--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) - The House of Trucks ( proudly announces their 25th anniversary, serving the trucking industry since 1985. Specializing in used trucks and equipment, The House of Trucks is the Midwest's largest independent used truck dealer with a national customer base. In celebration of this landmark anniversary, House of Trucks is offering special discounts for new customers and fleet purchases.

The company's longstanding success is largely attributed to focusing on their specific customers' needs. "We have a better understanding than other dealers of selling late model, low mileage equipment," explains Jim Rys, president of House of Trucks. "We don't do leasing or sell new. We just focus on servicing and selling the best used trucks we can find."

Quality, affordable trucks and equipment are available on an individual basis or as a small fleet. The dealership offers a one-stop shop for customers, providing sales, service, maintenance, insurance and financing, as well as remarketing of customers' trucks and equipment.

The company's 25 years in a changing industry gives The House of Trucks an edge in knowing their customers. "We're mostly local based," says Rys. "We've established a strong base of customers within about 150 miles." Rys also serves as a board member for the Illinois Trucking Association, working with other industry leaders to resolve issues and make it desirable for companies to do business in the state of Illinois.

Reaching beyond local business, The House of Trucks web site ( serves customers nationwide and internationally. "We've been here so long, people know and trust our business and contact us even when they've left the area," says Rys. "We've started doing a good deal of export business of specialty equipment, especially construction and waste management."

The House of Trucks recently added a fleet sales department for the buying and selling of equipment and their new trailer lines, Mac, Benlee and Coras. This expansion reinforces the company's commitment to the growing needs of their fleet accounts. "Our goal is to find the right equipment, late model, low mileage, with warranties at the right price for our customers," says Rys.
