In the News

At DeCarolis, we’ve been helping businesses deliver since 1938.

Most businesses that need to deliver their products, or their customers' products, are better served with a lease agreement on a vehicle that exactly fits their needs.  In addition to truck and trailer leasing, we offer rental trucks and trailers for a day or long-term, based on what you're hauling and when your company needs it.  Business customers can receive contract maintenance or full service maintenance services for their own trucks and trailers, in order to keep their fleets on the road.  We also sell heavy duty parts, equipment, truck accessories, and shop supplies to those customers with mechanics.  DeCarolis can provide solutions at the level you choose.

DeCarolis unveils new logo

DeCarolis Truck Rental now has a new logo. It features "NationaLease" instead of "Truck Rental" to better reflect and convey our primary focus of providing leases of commercial vehicles to businesses. DeCarolis's rental fleet will still be seen daily on the roads, but that fleet is a fraction of the leased vehicles featuring the brand names of familiar companies.
