1952 GMC pickup

The project that started in the fall of 1999 with a trip up to Barrie Ontario with my son and good friend Bill Merkley to pick up an old truck, that did not even run, was completed last week. When I started the restoration project I said I would have the truck on the road in the spring. I meant the spring of 2000. Everyone that had done a project like this had told me that I was right, that the truck would be on the road in the spring. But the spring of what year. Well the year will be 2015. Fifteen years is a long time to complete a project but with the help of so many people and the support of my dear wife Joan it is finally done.

Bill’s Truck Shop is open!

There are a few changes to how we are doing business. Curb side pickup to follow municipal guidelines.  

Our commitment to you as the customer remains the same but we need to take some necessary precautions to keep yourself, our staff, and that of our community safe. Our hours of operation is 8:00am to 5:00pm, Mon - Fri, but closed for lunch between 12:00pm and 1:00pm. Until further notice, we will be closed Saturdays as well. 

Due to recent events, there has been an extremely high volume of people trying to reach us. We are dealing with this increased volume as best we can while still operating with our province's physical distancing guidelines.

We strongly suggest emailing any orders to anyone of us here on the desk. Our phones are ringing and we are answering them, but we each can only help one customer at a time.,,

Happy Trucking
