Tucked away off the Valley Freeway in Pacific, Washington is a warehouse full of some pretty talented people. People who understand a hard day’s work, how to trick out a truck and the value of honest relationships. These amazing people have another thing in common, they all work for Sound Truck and Trailer Repair.
The company started in 2008 when owner Laurence Flinn was unsure of the future with his then-employer. Flinn took a risk and opened his own repair shop. Starting with one truck and basic tools, Sound Truck and Trailer Repair had nowhere to go but up. Today the team has a handful of trucks, 19 employees and an ever-growing client list.
Laurence attributes his success to the relationships he’s harbored over the years. One important relationship is with BBBNW+P employee, Denita Kitts. For Flinn, it’s about looking to people who know more than you, learning from them and growing. Whether it’s vendors, clients or marketing help from Kitts, there is no doubt these relationships have helped Sound Truck and Trailer Repair grow.
The six year BBB accredited business offers mobile and in shop repairs, custom builds and modifications. Their portfolio ranges from off roading vehicles to semi-trucks and everything in between. Seeing their work firsthand is a real treat.
When asked what is the secret sauce to his success, he replied, “I don’t think there is a secret sauce. It’s just standing behind what you believe in and make sure you’re doing the right thing”.
