X-Treme Towing has been sold to a group of local residents. Jeremy Swanson, Jared Story and Christa Morhart, along with their respective spouses, recently made the decision to go into business together as JS Truckmart and purchased the long serving towing company.
"We are going to continue to do what X-Treme has been doing and hopefully improve in some areas," explained new owner, Jeremy Swanson. "We're also currently buying trucks, cars, semis things like that. We're starting a recycling facility where we're going to sell new and used parts as well in conjunction with X-Treme Towing so we're excited about that."
"We're going to do towing just like they've done, continuing with no interruptions, same phone number 306-634-9891."
He added that they will also be taking over X-Treme's Facebook page.
"The physical location will change," added Morhart. "We'll be located at 52 and 56 highway 39E which is right beside Rocket sales just over the overpass."
Morhart added that Swanson has had a lot of experience in parts and that Turnbull has used his services many times over the years.
"Parts is something that I've been doing, I have about seven years of experience in heavy truck parts, engines, transmissions, things of that nature. It's my area of expertise. The towing really just works well together. They compliment each other well so it just seemed like a good fit."
"During our planning process for the parts place, X-Treme came up for sale and just worked it into our plans."
"I think X-Treme has been a successful business," shared Morhart. "It's been ran very well and we're confident that their customer base will continue to stay with them. Jeremy and Jared saw a need in the community for used parts. There's nothing like it real close and there's definitely a need so they put a plan together and now we're executing it."
"It's important to note that all three of us are locals. Jeremy has recently moved here but his spouse was born and raised here so we're all locals who are getting into business together hoping to be able to contribute back to the community and we're looking for the local community to support us in return."
The company also plans on providing a cross border deliver service.
"We're going to offer a deliver service to the States so US customers can buy parts fro us and we will deliver them. As well as, we'll be offering the local Canadians here that we can get parts from the States."
Swanson added that he has experience when it comes to sourcing parts.
"I have customers on several continents, I've done business all over the world."
Morhart added, "So instead of people having to spend hours online researching and looking, they can just pick up the phone and call JS Truckmart and Jeremy will be happy to service them."
The new business takes over X-Treme effective November 1, 2017.
