Moving you from where you are to where you want to be.

From tractors, day cabs, sleepers, utility vehicles, reefers, step vans and construction vehicles, Lakeside has the product and the vocational expertise to support your business from properly specing and building your truck to maintaining and repairing it once in service.

In addition to new and used truck sales, Lakeside provides full service leasing, contract maintenance and daily commercial rentals through Badgerland Idealease, a division of Lakeside International Trucks.
