History

Tubby’s first opened in London Ontario Canada in 1957 by Howard Dickenson (Tubby).  The Dickenson family owned and operated Tubby’s Bus & Truck at 1490 Hamilton Rd. until 1987 when Dave and Catherine Allewell purchased the business. Tubby’s Tire Service was owned and operated by George Clutterbuck along side Tubby’s Bus & Truck at 1490 Hamilton Rd. until the passing of George Clutterbuck in 2002. The tire business was then sold to MTC Tire. In 1993 the Allewell family owned and operated Tubby’s Auto and Tire at 762 Industrial Rd. in London until we sold that business to City Tire in 1997. In 2004, we built an 11 bay truck shop and moved our operations to the present location just out side of London at 545 Moonlight Way, Dorchester Ontario. With our location now backing onto the north side of Highway 401 in between the London Husky and the Fifth Wheel truck stops we were able to increase our ability to serve our customers. In addition to the new location we changed our name from Tubby’s Bus and Truck to Tubby's Truck and Trailer to better represent our customer base. In May of 2012, we reopened Tubby’s Tire Service. With the addition of the tire service Tubby’s is one of the only facilities in Ontario that is able to provide its customers with full mechanical and tire service both in shop and on location. In May of 2013 Tubby’s Tire became a Goodyear Truck Tire Dealer.
