Fleetserve Truck Sales was originally founded by Rick Tanton and Bob Mitchell in 2001. Together their combined 50 years experience in the commercial truck leasing and sales industry gave them the broad perspective that helped customers find the right truck for their application.
In 2014, Brad Tanton, Rick’s son, joined the team after earning his Entrepreneurship degree from UTSA. Brad grew up detailing trucks and growing our online activity throughout his summers in college. Brad took over as General Manager after Bob sadly passed away in 2017.
Still a locally owned and family run business, we continue that tradition of helping you find the right truck for your application. Lease versus buy? Gas versus diesel? Our background and experience continues to help guide you in the right direction. Whether you buy a truck from us or not, we want to help you get the right truck for your application!
About our Inventory
We specialize in used commercial trucks and vans. That includes pickups, cargo vans, service trucks, flatbeds, cutaway vans, box trucks, dump trucks and anything in between. A large majority of our inventory comes from leasing companies and large fleets. Generally, these are the best maintained, late model trucks available to the public. We have a mechanic inspect our trucks for necessary repairs before we list them. All of our listed inventory is state inspected and road ready.
Henry Smith is our full time mechanic who services our inventory and gets them road ready. Henry met Rick and Bob working as a mobile mechanic in 2010 and has been with us ever since.
In 2019 we brought on Dewley Weldon as a Sales manager to handle most of our sales. Dewley was a former salesman/manager at dealerships in the Austin area and has quickly picked up the commercial side of the business.
The youngest member of our sales team joined us February of 2021. Bubbles is our office guard dog, she’ll usually greet you with a few barks and licks then show you her toy collection.
