Company History

Before Chad Rypkema owned Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van, he ran a similar and equally successful shop on Long Island, NY. After ten years of management, Chad made the decision to relocate to the Raleigh area due to the Long Island, NY market being oversaturated.

“I was confident that the same type of business would be successful in Raleigh,” Chad stated. And in January 2007, Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van opened its doors in the Triangle.


With more than two decades of experience in the industry, Chad is not only an expert; he’s a valued and trusted resource. His reputation for excellence both in the way he treats his customers as well as how he treats his employees precedes him.

Quality Customer Service; Quality AutomotiveProducts

Since it’s doors opened in 2007, customers have consistently chosen Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van over other competitors in the area because of the personalized attention and professional service(s) they receive.

In fact, much of Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van’s business is referral based via word of mouth, which is conveyed when customers call and/or drop in.

Price Matters; So Does Service

For many customers, price is important. However, often when customers shop according to price, they don’t always get the quality product, parts, or installation that Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van prides itself on delivering.

Top Quality Automotive Parts

With a reputation for being the “best around” when it comes to window tinting and installing leveling kits, Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van only sells top quality parts.

Whether you need custom auto body accessories, or simply want to add new rims, wheels, and tires – no job is too big or too small.

Chad and his team are educated on all types of makes/models of cars and how to properly address each customer’s individual needs.

Currently, Wakefield Auto, Truck & Van handles work for many businesses in the Wake Forest and Raleigh, NC area, including:

  • Work for major automobile dealers
