Love’s Travel Stops has officially changed the name of its truck maintenance network to Love’s Truck Care from Love’s Truck Tire Care. The change reflects the growth and broader capabilties of Love’s Truck Care and Speedco centers, the company said in a statement.
“In just over a decade, we’ve grown to be the nation’s largest and most comprehensive preventive maintenance and total truck care network, providing coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with more than 1,500 maintenance bays across the country,” said Gary Price, executive vice president of Truck Care for Love’s. That includes not only tires, but also oil changes, roadside coverage, and other preventive care needs.
Love’s Truck Care started in 2008. The network expanded dramatically in 2017 when Love’s acquired Speedco from Bridgestone. It’s now the largest oil change, preventive maintenance and total truck care nationwide network in the U.S., according to Love’s.
Aside from expanding its scope and services, Love’s is also focused on expanding products for professional drivers. It recently launched Love’s Premium 10W-30 Oil, a high-performance, heavy-duty oil.
“We’re gearing up for big plans when it comes to 2021,” Price said. “We have several large-scale projects rolling out that will take customer service to a whole new level. For us, it’s all about getting customers back on the road quickly and safely and increasing uptime for fleets.”
