The Truck Doctors is housed in a huge building with massive doors and extremely high ceilings.


“It’s 10,000 square feet,” Waller said. “Anything that will go down the highway, we can get in here.”


There is ample room for a large number of vehicles inside the structure.


“We had 12 in here last night,” Richardson said. “That was semis and a fire truck.”


Waller has outfitted The Truck Doctors with the state-of-the-art equipment needed to ensure quality work on customers’ vehicles.


“I installed a PPG Delfleet system,” he said, providing one major example. “It’s a mixing system for paint. We’re the only one here that has a paint-mixing system for semis and stuff. Some places mix it out of town. We mix everything here.”


Waller stressed that what makes this new business a good choice for truck and RV owners is the expertise his team of professionals possesses.


“I’ve got 20 years of knowledge and experience in the collision industry,” he said, noting also that Richardson has been in the RV world since 1987. “My employees have broad expertise in the body work.”


Waller said that initially, some of the projects being handled at The Truck Doctors are making use of specialists from Troy Waller Auto Body.


“Eventually, I’ll get this place self-sufficient,” he said. “As it grows, we’ll do that. There are three full-time employees here right now. When all is said and done, it will probably employ 10 to 12 people.”


Waller said the key to success in businesses like the ones he owns is careful attention to customer service.


“We’re honest,” he said. “We treat people right. I treat people like I would want to be treated. We take care of people.”
