Truck No. 8

Pipe Rack Upgrade

April 14, 2016

Treasure Valley Plumbing and Drain Cleaning’s Truck #8 got an upgrade this week.  The old pipe rack was falling apart and becoming dangerous, so we replaced it with a newer BSU Blue, powder coated pipe rack. Joel, the Crew boss, is a big fan of BSU, and said now he just needs the truck to be painted ORANGE.  I think we’ll keep it white, but thanks for the suggestion, Joel! All you big fans of TVPD, Honk and Wave at our trucks as you go by.  Thanks to all of our great customers, you’re the BEST!! Save Save
