farris-14-with-dad_cropped.jpgJames Owen was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. At the age of 7 years old, James was riding on the back of garbage trucks with his father who was a self-employed garbage man! His father taught him how to wash trucks, how to maintain and repair them and he learned all about the trash trucks industry. At age 14 he learned how to drive trucks and, at just 16 years old, he had his own commercial and residential route!

Once in college, James discovered he had a knack for sales. He applied this to his father’s business, and tripled thier revenue! Over the course of a decade, he created three highly reputable companies and sold them to the largest haulers in the world.

Being in the hauling business, James saw a need for quality used garbage trucks. He was almost always looking for trucks for his business, and it was a challenge to find affordable used trucks in good working order. So he decided to meet this need, and began buying trucks in need of repair, then reconditioning them for resale. He dedicated himself and his company to supplying good working trucks at a fair price.

With his decades of industry knowledge and his exceptional understanding of how these trucks work, he is the trusted name in the Midwest for garbage truck repairs and purchase…and rightly so. James has applied everything he learned over his lifetime with these vehicles – as well as the work ethic of his father – to giving his customers what they need and ensuring their satisfaction.

When you come to Parris Truck Sales, you will speak to James himself. He has an outstanding team of employees that have been with him “over the long haul”, and they, too, will take great care of you.

Our hours are Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4:30 PM, and Saturdays by appointment.
