We were founded by Bill Thames, after he left the Navy in the 1950’s and returned home to Birmingham Alabama. Bill loved selling used trucks almost as much as he loved talking to people. And Bill loved to talk. It was through his gift of gab and love of his community that Bill leaned something was missing from Birmingham. A dealership where people can work with seasoned professionals, who are experts – folks who prize honesty, integrity and make sure that every vehicle sold has been properly serviced and inspected.
Everybody has to start somewhere, and in 1954 Bill founded Repossession Sales. He bought repossessed cars and trucks, then serviced and re-sold them. Unlike other dealerships at the time, Bill was honest about the vehicles he sold (a lesson he learned in the Navy, where equipment failure can be the difference between life and death). He would share every detail he knew about that used car or used truck and it paid off. In time Bill became known all over town for his honesty and integrity. But in time Bill realized the stigma of Repossession was holding his business back. That was when Bill made the decision to specialize in used trucks, because trucks “get the job done”.
Bill followed his passion. He stopped selling used cars altogether and changed the name of his Business to “All About Tucks”. He was going to be the first business in Birmingham that strictly offered used trucks for sale. On top of that, he became an expert in used trucks, commercial trucks, Chevy trucks, Ford trucks, GMC trucks, Dodge trucks and later Imports like Isuzu trucks and Toyota trucks. Word got around of Bill’s expertise and soon people started showing up from other states to buy a used truck from Bill.
At age 82 after a stellar career of over 60 years offering used trucks for sale, Bill sold All About Trucks to his friend Bubba Wells in 2011. Although Bubba was now the new owner of All About Trucks, Bill had taught him everything he knew about honesty, integrity and of course offering used trucks for sale at fair prices.
In 2015 Bubba Wells decided to focus on offering commercial trucks for sale to business and contractors. That was when we became WORKTRUX specializing in used commercial trucks for sale. In our inventory we offer a broad selection of quality used trucks such as Chevrolet Silverado and Chevrolet Silverado HD Trucks, Ford F Series and Super Duty Trucks, Isuzu NPR, NPR HD Cabover Box Trucks, International 4300 / 4700 Series Box Trucks. We also offer used cargo vans such as Chevrolet Express Cargo Vans and Wagons, Ford E Series Cargo Vans and Wagons, just to name a few.
To this day we honor Bill by making sure every used truck we sell passes our 150 point inspection. Our salespeople prioritize honesty over a quick sell because we strive for repeat business. We want to be there for you in five to ten years when you are ready to upgrade.
