We've been washing truck exteriors for almost four decades. While there are many methods to exterior washing, we've learned that any equipment has to be hand scrubbed to get it really clean. That's why we employ the best people who apply our time tested processes to achieve the best results.
Nick graduated from DeVry College in Kansas City, MO with a degree in electrical engineering technology. Nick initially went to work for companies that marketed or manufactured after market automotive parts. Nick came to Deluxe with a bag full of talent and energy and wears just about every hat he can (literally and figuratively) at Deluxe Truck Stop.
We opened our doors in October of 1980 with a determination to carve out a quality business. Located in the heart of the agricultural community of St. Joseph, Missouri, Deluxe Truck Stop has enjoyed the changes in its business model over the last 40 years of operation.

Levi Meade is Deluxe's jack of all trades. Outside of doing the day-to-day work such as washing trucks or changing and repairing tires, Levi has been our go-to guy to help repair and maintain on our machinery and equipment. Levi has been and will continue to be a great asset for Deluxe Truck Stop!

In his 40+ years here, James is always on time and always aware of the customers needs. James has washed out livestock trailers and done exterior washes the majority of his career.

Mike started at Deluxe in 2019 and has a great knack for befriending our customers and making them part of the family. In 2021, Mike took on a bigger role and became our exterior wash bay manager in the mornings. Mike keeps our employees engaged, customers happy and steps up to the plate when we need anything done.

So much to say, so little room. Cartha, Stephanie, Kali, Mallory and Mikela make up the front house operations. These gals write over 150 labor tickets a day, perform countless CAT Scale weighs, answer all phone calls and make sure our in-store customers are taken care of to the fullest. Ronda, Barb and Vickie make up the back house operations. These gals are our lifelines to cleanliness. Cleaning showers, mopping floors, and keeping the restrooms the cleanest in the midwest is all in a days work for them.
"We take cleaning to the nth degree."
