Many South Floridians know Joseph DeMaria throughout the Miami area for his longstanding success selling exotic cars through his auto dealership, The Collection back in the 90’s. Joseph DeMaria, sold Porsches, Jaguars and Ferraris as well as Volkswagens and Volvos with tremendous success from the multi-location car dealership. He decided to sell the collection in 1991 and try something new. In May of 1997, after selling The Collection, Mr. DeMaria launched TruckMax, Inc and acquired Losada Truck & Equipment, a long time medium & heavy truck dealership in Miami that sold & serviced Volvo, GMC, Isuzu & Mitsubishi commercial trucks.
While GMC no longer manufactures medium duty commercial trucks, TruckMax still sells and services Volvo and Mitsubishi Fuso trucks and has added the Hino Commercial truck line as well as the Jerr-Dan brand for the towing industry. TruckMax has been run at a great level of success and has helped innumerable South Florida businesses purchase the proper type of truck for their business and has offered unprecedented service and support. Joseph DeMaria has transformed the trucking industry to some degree; at least in the South Florida area because of his past experience with exotic cars and The Collection, he was able to bring some of those same “elite” business practices in to the truck dealership industry.
