One Buffalo man started his own auto repair business out of his love of repairing semi-trucks and other vehicles.

Randy’s Auto is an auto repair business that is located on 212 Greensburg Road in Hodgenville. The business provides a variety of services including major or minor car repair, semi-truck service and repair, oil changes, towing services and much more.

Owner Randy Allen said he drove a semi-truck for several years and that he always wanted to open his own repair shop.

“I got tired of being on the road all of the time and wanted to open my own repair shop so I could be home more,” Allen said. “I had been doing some car repairs on the side when I was home, so I already had a customer base started.”

Allen opened the business in 2011with the help of his wife Teresa Allen and his daughter Amber Allen Thompson. Allen went on to say that he enjoys running his own business.

“I enjoy meeting people and I enjoy working on vehicles, especially semi-trucks,” Allen said. “I still love semi-trucks, but I don’t want to be in them all day. Being able to work on them instead is a good compromise.”

Randy’s Auto is open from 8 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information call 270-735-3976.
