Cloverdale News: TEAMSTERS TRUCK COLLECTION
Permission was given Monday night (April 2) to the Surrey Heritage Society to use the old Surrey Museum as the new site for the BC Heritage Transportation Centre. The people of Surrey will work with the Teamsters to sign an agreement announcing that the Truck collection will be moving here.

An official lease was signed with the City of Surrey allowing the museum to occupy the old museum on the fairgrounds in Cloverdale. The Lark group retrofitted the building and the Teamsters took care of the Vintage Trucks being moved.
After many meetings Cloverdale came up with the official name for the museum. It was named the BC Vintage Truck Museum.
The first two vehicles to be restores were two stunning restored Surrey Fire Department vehicles and an amazing 1910 International Auto Wagon from the BC Pioneer Truck Society. (The original collector was Bob King who owned a trucking business).
Bill Reid also played an important role in moving the truck collection to Cloverdale in 1987 as part of the BC Transportation Museum and in 2011 the new BC Vintage Truck Museum was born.
Cloverdale Fairgrounds beside Shannon Hall is a work in progress but it is open from time to time who want to take a peek.
Check back to this website for updates on the hours of opening and the grand opening coming soon.
BC Vintage Truck Museum Hours: Saturdays from 10am – 2pm and
