NEW FACILITY COMING SOON

PHASE 1

PARTS, SERVICE, SALES


With 41 service bays and 180 parking spots, Housby's new facility will have enough space to accommodate our growing community, with thought-out plans for all trucks and equipment types.

We are also excited to include dedicated classroom and training space for our Housby University students.

PHASE 2

PAINT SHOP & USED PARTS


Housby's new Paint Shop and Used Parts warehouse will be conveniently located just down the road from our main facility.

Customers can anticipate even quicker turnaround times with our 22 paint shop bays, 76' double paint booth, frame and alignment machine, and 6 tear down bays, just to name a few of our amenities. 

PHASE 3

HOUSBY CORPORATE


The last phase of this project will be to create new corporate office space, just north of the Parts & Service facility.

To maintain the convenience for our quick lube customers, the Housby Truck Lube will remain at 4755 NE 14th Street, just at the crossroads of i80 and i35, directly off of exit 136.

Volvo CE wins EquipmentWatch "Highest Retained Value" award for 2022.

VOLVO EXCAVATOR, WHEEL LOADER RECEIVE HIGHEST RETAINED VALUE AWARDS FROM EQUIPMENTWATCH.

 

For the seventh straight year, Volvo Construction Equipment has received a Highest Retained Value Award from EquipmentWatch, the construction industry’s leading insights provider. The 2022 awards went to the Volvo EC380E in the Large Crawler Excavators category and the Volvo L250H in the Large Wheel Loaders category.

“Volvo is committed to designing machines that retain high value over their entire lifecycle, including when owners are ready to resell them at a competitive price,” said Stephen Roy, President of Region North America, Volvo CE. “We appreciate that EquipmentWatch recognizes the innovation that goes into our machines and offers data-driven insights to support the equipment marketplace.”

 

 

Scoring the Equipment

EquipmentWatch bases its awards on intensive data analysis and the evaluation of millions of value and cost data points, with its awards program serving as a de facto buying guide for the industry. The Highest Retained Value designation recognizes equipment that retains the highest percentage of its original value for five years into the future. Buyers can rely on this objective validation to confidently purchase equipment.

The Volvo EC380 crawler excavator and L250 wheel loader feature robust structures and high-quality welding that provide superior strength and durability, making them last longer even while working on the toughest jobsites.

Volvo has also integrated machine technology that helps its products retain their value. This includes ActiveCare® Direct, an advanced telematics system that provides insights to reduce fuel consumption, unplanned maintenance, operator errors and excessive hours caused by unnecessary idling.

To support the longevity of its equipment and help with lifecycle value, Volvo offers several additional services to machine owners, including a Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, Fuel Efficiency Guarantee and the Volvo Certified Used program.
