  • All Hands On “Deck”

    What is a Pirate Pak? It is a White Spot kid's meal, served in a paper pirate boat and every year, in August, White Spot hosts a Pirate Pak Day for adults - and we love it here, at Phoenix. It's the one day a year when we can feel like pirates...

  • You don’t have to march to show your support, you can also drive

    We always say that we love working downtown Vancouver. Well…last Sunday was a different type of work and we loved it too! It was the first parade that our unit #5019 had the opportunity to participate in, and she made such an impression that she ‘whispered’ to us that she...

  • Craning For The Children

    The philanthropic initiative by one of our clients inspired us when we were asked to crane their newest ventilation unit, little did we know when we donated our services that it was for one of the most amazing endeavors in the lower mainland - the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Canuck...

  • Golf cart vs BBQ cart – which one was the most “wanted”?

    We have always believed in and enjoyed supporting our local hospital and we never mind golfing, so combining both on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 was divine! Along with four of our finest golfers, Phoenix Truck & Crane also brought its very popular BBQ cart to provide tasty smokies to all of...

    Phoenix loves it’s ‘furry friends’.. and we especially have a soft spot for dogs. Maybe it’s the joy our Great Dane Mastiff mix Jackson, used to bring to our team when he made our former Administration Manager’s office his own. Or perhaps the regular visits from tiny Potato - a...

  • Giving Unemployment a “boot”!

    Every year, Phoenix Truck & Crane reviews its Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy in order to keep a fresh perspective and engaged with the right partners. The rise in operating costs and new taxes introduced by the government in 2019 has forced us to be a little more conservative this year. When we encountered...

  • Phoenix Celebrates Youth Week

    On the first day of BC Youth Week, we would like to acknowledge all the young professionals working with us and express how lucky we are to have them in our Phoenix family. Thank you for the collaboration, your willingness to learn and bringing new ideas to improve and modernize...

  • A week full of “helper’s High”

    Last week has been a “charitable” week for Phoenix Truck & Crane and specifically our driver number 282 and his 24 foot 5 ton van! Offering our freight services as ‘work in kind’ is something that we can do for organizations such as Share Food Bank, Dogway Dog Rescue Society...

    At sea, a storm warning is issued by the National Weather Service when winds between 89 km/h and 117 km/h are about to occur or are predicted. On Canadian land, Environment Canada issues the high wind warnings when severe weather threatens and at Phoenix Truck & Crane, we all take responsibility for alerting each other about the weather...
