In 1981, Pierre Charette founded Charette service d'Auto, offering roadside assistance, towing and automobile repair services. First located on Grande-Allée Street in Saint-Hubert, we quickly outpaced our competitors and, in 1992, we moved to J.A. Bombardier in the industrial park, ceasing our auto repair service to focus on roadside assistance, towing and machinery transport.
Fourteen years later, the company moved to a 40,000 m² lot on Payer Blvd., located in the same industrial district. The company erected a new state-of-the-art building that stands at 2,500 m².
A large-scale operation
Certified as an impound lot under the Highway Safety Code of Québec, today the company boasts 40, 000 m² of outdoor storage space and 2,500 m² of indoor space on a fenced lot with controlled access. Personnel remain on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The premises are secured by a network of cameras and a team of trained guard dogs. We can store up to 500 vehicles of all makes and models.
Since the beginning, we have counted a number of police departments among our clients, including the Sûreté municipale de Longueil, the Régie de police de Roussillon, the Régie de police Richelieu St-Laurent, the Sûreté du Québec stations of Cartier-Champlain and Montérégie East, the Service d'Urgence (west sector), the Saint-Hubert military base and the RCMP. Our company tailors our services to the needs of our client base. Our ability to assist the police as they carry out their sensitive operations has earned us an enviable reputation in our field.
