GULFPORT, Miss., Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Truck Showrooms ( is a big hit on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and as a result, is expanding with Atlanta becoming the second location.

American Truck Showrooms ( is not a typical used truck dealership. Specializing in Class 8, Over the Road trucks, this dealership stands out. It is truly a "Show Room" facility. The Gulfport location has set new standards in "green" for truck facilities. Using low energy LED lights that are 24-volt battery powered, with traditional electricity only there for trickle charging, the entire 10-acre facility is lit up, inside and out. The truck wash uses a closed loop system, continually filtering and cleaning the water that is used to wash the 18-wheelers. The water is cleaned so well that it is stored in a clear retention pond that stocks large numbers of brightly colored Coy Fish. Visitors are welcome to sit on the deck by the pond and feed the fish. Adults and children alike are entertained.

The Gulfport location of American Truck Showrooms ( currently has over 100 trucks on the property. Popular makes include Volvo, Freightliner, Kenworth, and Peterbilt. The dealership focuses on late model trucks that are in good shape and fully refurbish these trucks as needed.

American Truck Showrooms ( has been such a hit because it offers the special Rental with an Option to Purchase, or Rent to Buy program that allows truckers, regardless of credit, to obtain a quality truck at a reasonable cost.

Atlanta is a logical next step for the dealership. Atlanta is about 400 miles from Gulfport, Mississippi. With many customers of American Truck Showrooms flying in to obtain a truck, the close proximity to the Atlanta Airport is a huge plus.

Like the Mississippi location, American Truck Showrooms ( in Atlanta will be a showplace facility. Over 6 acres, fully concreted with a full shop and 6,000 square foot office building will provide the dealership with a great location for its future growth. As in Gulfport, the Atlanta dealership will utilize a closed loop system for its truck wash so that it too can help keep the environment clean.

Also like the Mississippi location, the new dealership will offer the No Credit Check Rent to Buy program. The company plans on adding additional locations in later 2013 and 2014.

The Atlanta location of American Truck Showrooms will open this March in Newnan, Georgia, just south of the Atlanta airport off of I-85. (
