McHugh Dodge-Jeep on Maple Avenue is expanding its service department.
General Manager Tim McHugh says the company is adding 3 more service garages to its existing 7. The new space will allow them to work on larger trucks which McHugh says is a large part of their business.
"We’re talking about 3/4 tons and 1 ton diesels. We needed higher ceilings to lift the vehicles up, a little heavier duty hoist. You see that with some of the pipeline projects coming through town. Things break, they aren’t at home, they still need to get fixed. "
McHugh says that the expansion will allow them to service those larger trucks, hire another technician and shorten wait times for existing customers.
"Need more space, we’ve been busier we’ve sold more vehicles. The truck market has been pretty hot around here and to really offer a better customer experience so people will have to wait less time to get their cars in."
The new service bays are expected to be open in around 45 days.
