CANTON, Texas, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ross Maris has worn many titles: Dallas fireman, Canton City Councilmen and Economic Development Board member, and co-owner of Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers.
Maris now has another title that only he and his son, Stephen, can claim in their charming Texas town 59 miles east of Dallas: U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer.
Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers at 24780 Hwy. 64 is Canton's only U-Haul dealer and stocks a vast array of U-Haul products including trucks, cargo vans, trailers, towing equipment, support rental items, moving supplies, in-store pick-up for boxes and much more. Hours of operation are 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.
Reserve U-Haul items at this location, conveniently located a few minutes from Interstate 20, by visiting http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/Truck-Rentals-near-Canton-TX or calling (903) 567-0874 today.
The Maris father-son tandem has been buying and selling used vehicles at Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers for nearly three years. There are nearly a dozen U-Haul trucks and trailers on the lot at any given time and business has been steady since they arrived, with peak periods coming at the end of each month – traditionally the most popular time for U-Haul rentals.
Before opening Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers, Ross served as a fireman for the Dallas Fire Department for 40 years. He finally decided to "retire," although he uses that term lightly.
The Maris family also runs the popular, part-time food business Tasty Treats. Once a month, Canton holds a flea-market style festival called First Mondays. During the four days before the first Monday of each month, Ross and Stephen can be found here serving sandwiches, ice cream and scrumptious fried foods that your taste buds will love – even if your waistline doesn't.
Over the last decade, the elder Maris has been directly involved in the successful growth of Canton as a city councilman and economic development board member. He enjoys seeing the developments in his area as advancements continue to come Canton's way.
In the same vein, Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers has aided Canton's expansion and enhanced its own business with the addition of U-Haul products.
Roadrunner Car & Truck Brokers is a great place to become U-Haul Famous. Take your picture in front of a U-Haul product, send it in and your face could land on the side of a U-Haul truck.
