But for those with trucking needs, Peterson Trucks has now prepared several exclusive offerings that are only available to charitable organizations.

Not only will you reap the rewards of unbeatable rates, but you’ll also have the added benefit of a knowledgeable staff that can offer suggestions or assist you with questions and concerns. When you choose Peterson, you’re not just earning exclusive deals. You’re investing in a partner that is dedicated to providing you with support to do more than succeed, but thrive. Together we can go the distance.



When you bring your business to Peterson, you gain access to exclusive national fleet pricing on parts. This offer is only available for nonprofits and guarantees the lowest pricing on the highest quality of product. So whether you’re picking up donated clothes or delivering food, choose Peterson to be your part supplier.



Keeping maintenance costs down is a struggle no matter what industry your organization serves. But as a company dedicated to partnering with its customers in building the future, Peterson makes your productivity a priority.

With Peterson’s exclusive nonprofit offering, you take 20% off of all labor performed in Peterson shops, making truck servicing a little more affordable for those who pride themselves in service.



Peterson Idealease understands the importance of having access to rental trucks during emergency situations, breakdowns, repairs, or when additional vehicles are needed to handle short-term peaks in demand. So rental terms have been specifically tailored to meet these inevitable inconveniences. Whether your rental needs are for one day or for several months at a time, Idealease has a special fleet of trucks set aside for your business necessities.



A full service lease with Idealease allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of ownership, with none of the headaches. Truck Leasing can help improve cash flow and increase productivity by giving you the ability to focus on your business while Idealease manages all of your maintenance issues. Conserve capital and address specific balance sheet and tax issues with a stress-free lease. There is no deposit up front. And at the end of the term, full service lease customers simply return the vehicle to Idealease without concerning themselves with disposal or residual exposure.


Whether your truck makes a planned visit to our shop or an unexpected halt on the side of the road, you have peace of mind knowing that Idealease will take care of you wherever you are. Our state-of-theart mobile service trucks are operated by highly trained technicians who are ready for anything. These techs are on the road every day, performing scheduled maintenance at customer locations and getting equipment back on the road should a breakdown occur.

With a dedicated team on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can be confident that your business will spend less on down time and challenges.

Idealease Priority Service keeps your trucks on the road and out of the shop! That’s what sets Peterson Idealease apart from the rest.
