Our History

Keeping Customers On The Move Since 1976

Over 40 years, Universal Truck and Trailer has built a solid reputation providing truck sales, service, and parts to customers in and around Atlantic Canada.

Originally affiliated with Universal Sales Limited, a company that manufactured Scott trucks out of Debert, Nova Scotia, UTT has grown to be the largest heavy-duty truck and trailer dealership in the Maritimes under one roof. Today, UTT's main dealership and head office is in Dieppe, NB, with a network of service centres across New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

Universal Truck and Trailer became a Freightliner dealership in 1981 and a Western Star dealership in 2005. In the early 1990's, Roadsmarts was introduced, our popular parts and service program with specials featured in our monthly newsletter.

With a commitment to top quality service every step of the way, our size has allowed us to create buying power and consistently deliver better value for our customers. Universal Truck and Trailer is a proud member of the J.D. Irving, Limited group of companies.
