AJ’s Truck and Trailer Center, here in Harrisburg, PA is full of history. We are in a building that was part of Lenkerbrook Dairy Farms. The dairy was in operation until at least the mid to late 1960’s. Our original building used to be a garage and service center for the fleet of milk trucks. When we originally opened our doors, we used that very same shop as our garage to service our customers. As our customer base grew so did the size of the trucks and trailers that needed work. This resulted in our first addition to the property. We added on an entirely new garage that has over 2400 square feet of room, 3 lifts, and an extra tall garage door to accommodate larger 5th wheel campers.
Our showroom has always been in the old Lenkerbrook building, and the old shop was converted to store all of our snow plow parts, Big Dog Mowers, and the Stealth 4X4 vehicles. It didn’t take long for us to realize that our showroom seemed smaller and smaller. We want to be able to showcase all of our great products for the customers when they stop in to see us. So, we have decided to convert the old Lenkerbrook building into our new show room. Check out the progress so far.
The old garage doors have been removed, and a new store front has been installed. There will be plenty of room to show case all of our great products. We will be able to stock a lot more too! We are looking forward to all of the new things this showroom change will offer us, and our customers. The current showroom will be converted back to storage. Right now we have our hitches and trailer tires and wheels stored up in a loft. We can’t wait for them to be on the first floor!
This is where the new entrance will be. Larger doors, and we promise, there will be an entrance sign so everyone knows how to get in. The new entrance doors will allow us to keep tonneau covers, mowers, and other display units inside. We are hoping to have a lot more products on hand so our customers can see them first hand before purchasing them.
It looks empty now, but just imagine the walls lined with all the products you need to service you trailer, snow plow, and salt spreaders. Lights, bearings, seals, and brake parts too. All easily accessible when you stop out for parts. I will do my best to keep you posted on all the exciting new changes here at AJ’s. Thanks to all of our loyal customers who have created the need for expansion. You will not be disappointed in the results. We want all of our customers, the new, the old, the local, and the ones traveling, to have the best experience when you visit us here in Harrisburg. Stay tuned for more updates and the renovations progress!
