Why do we do what we do?
I (Darrel) started out driving trucks when I was 15 years old. I won't tell you how old I am,
but that was about four decades ago. I bought my first truck in 1980 and pulled flatbeds for
about six years. Then I pulled pneumatic trailers, tank trailers, pressure tanks, belly dumps,
and various others.
All that time, I always did my own repairs (minor and major). I was pretty good at it and got
better with experience. When you own a truck, there is always something to do.
In 1986, I knew it was time to be home more to watch my three sons grow up (then 6,3, and 1)
so I started trucking shorter distances and working on other drivers' trucks to pay the grocery
bill. I also hired some guys and we kept doing more and more work.
In 1994, we moved our business, to Lockwood. We have built an amazing list of loyal customers who
also are our good friends. Our employees are like part of our family that operates as a team. We
always have our customers' best interests in mind. Hardly a day goes by that we don't advise someone
to not spend money or choose a less expensive truck purchase or repair solution.
I have been on both sides of the check regarding repairs and know how hard it can be to write one.
So, it always has been our goal to help our friends (customers) stay in business and be able to
come back to see us again.
We are not the same as we were in the beginning, thank God. We have changed from a repair facility
that would do anything to a more directed business – still bent on doing everything possible to
help whoever comes through our door but limiting our services to working our salvage yard and truck sales.
