  About us

(pictured above is from our 1st shop - we only had room for about 6 six trucks)


Big City Rigs is a Salt Lake City, Utah based truck dealership. Specializing in the sale of one of a kind vocational, heavy transport, pre-emission and specialty commercial trucks. Our partners have a combined 60 years in the retail and trucking industries. A founding premise which continues to guide us is to provide quality products/ services and to treat others how we would want to be treated. As operators of a separately held hauling company, we saw areas to improve on not only customer experience for buyers but also to level-up the inventory offered for sale in the Intermountain West.

Over many years of trial and error in owning our own trucks, we developed a preference in all things related to Big Rigs like vehicle manufactures, engines, horsepower, transmissions, suspensions, attachments and of course chrome. Our abilities and skills eventually started to work out really well for us. Not just in terms of running an efficient hauling business but  especially when buying/ selling our personal trucks. And there you have it, an idea to start a dealership began to take shape.

We opened for business from a humble single bay shop in March of 2020- the same week the Covid-19 pandemic shut down our country and set things off to a rocky start. That first year the company only sold 7 trucks. The following years we experienced huge growth, all while continually improving our skills and abilities to source the best inventory.

Today we operate out of a 12,000 Sq Ft building in the heart of Salt Lake City. Our staff consists of hands on owners, mechanics, purchasers, transporters, salesman and administrators. We are certified mechanics, talented fabricators/ welders, craftsmen, restoration experts, fully licensed dealers and installers of Ampliroll Hook Lift Systems. Building/ restoring rigs is our passion and we love sharing that with customers. We have sold trucks all over the United States including to Hawaii, Alaska, the US Virgin Islands and Canada. We have also developed exceptional working relationships with financiers and transportation companies alike- making a purchase with Big City Rigs a breeze.

Outside of work we enjoy spending time with family and friends outdoors; hiking, skiing, boating, camping and golfing. We strive to provide a friendly and boutique experience for our customers and look forward to the opportunity of earning your business.
