BUCKHANNON — If you can dream it, they can do it.
That’s the message Triple “K” Kustomz Off-Road Shop wants to send to its customers. The shop recently relocated from Tallmansville to 191 Vicksburg Rd. in Buckhannon. After opening Jan. 1, 2017 in Tallmansville, business really revved up, and owner Michael Ball realized he needed to move the shop to a larger, more suitable location.
“We just grew to where we outgrew our shop,” Ball said recently. “Now, we’re in a bigger area.” Triple “K” Kustomz Off-Road Shop’s motto is, “You dream it, we can build it.” The specialty motor vehicle company offers vehicle restoration, oil changes, motor swap and portable welding services. It also sells lift kits, tires and wheels.
“We do anything from day-to-day maintenance to custom work on cars, trucks and side-by-sides,” Ball said. “I’ve always done this kind of work.”
The ‘Triple K’ stands for Ball’s three children, Kynzie, Kayson and Kaiden. Ball’s interest in working on cars blossomed when he was young.
“As a young child, I always was working on model cars and almost anything with wheels,” he said. “It was a dream of mine for years to open a place where everyone could see my work.”
One of Ball’s primary focuses is providing stellar customer service.
“My approach to customer service is that if it’s not right, bring it by and we will make it right,” he said. “I aim at pleasing everyone that steps through the door.”
Ball has experience working in the oil fields and as a welder, but he’s happy to return to doing what he loves best — and getting paid for it.
“I’ve gotten to bounce back into what I enjoy and what I love to do,” Ball said. “It doesn’t even feel like coming to work.”
Even more importantly, having a shop in town gives Ball the sense he’s adding something to the community that wouldn’t otherwise be here.
“I feel my shop adds something to the community that we don’t have right now,” Ball said. “It’s a one-stop shop where I can work on just about anything. I feel proud to be a part of this community, and I feel I have a lot to offer.”
Triple “K” Kustomz Off-Road Shop is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays; the shop is closed Sundays. For more information, please call 304-613-5513 or search for them on Facebook.
