Shout out to all the Virginia Tech Hokie Fans for day 4 of our "Truck-a-Day"! We're a little biased, but we think the Virginia Tech truck is extra cool. Could be because our son Josh is a current sophomore at VT, that our Hokie Pride shines even brighter ✨ We're fortunate to have such a strong University here in the Commonwealth.

Day 2 of the "Truck-a-Day" campaign is our special 50th Anniversary Truck designed to celebrate 50 years of serving our wonderful customers. The late James R. Tharpe started J.R. Tharpe Trucking in 1971, with his lovely wife Ann to support him. James started the business with 8 trucks, which hauled out of Luck Stone in Burkeville to local customers. The company now operates over 100 trucks, which has been a personal goal of President & Owner Tim Tharpe for years. This bright red beauty really stands out among our fleet, and it was the perfect truck to celebrate 50 years in business. Here's to many more years of serving all of your hauling needs.

Kicking off today is our "Truck a Day" Month. We start with our Breast Cancer Awareness truck, which was one of the first themes we created to try and accommodate such a bright pink dump truck to the fleet. It was in October many years ago, so it was perfect timing for Breast Cancer Awareness. People loved the look of the truck and it was requested at many hospitals and community events in the area. We invited the ladies to sign the silver dump body and write whatever they'd like on it - in memory and in honor of survivors and fighters. This is definitely 1 of our All Time Favorites! πŸŽ€
