RealTruck began business in October of 1997. The business was
initially a manufacturer's representation firm designed to
establish dealers for Aftermarket Accessory Manufacturers. In
November of 1998, RealTruck began operating the e-commerce website
www.RealTruck.com. Our humble beginnings started in a basement of a
duplex in Spokane, WA. The sole purpose was to sell automotive
accessories online throughout the United States.
It seems odd to say now, but this was a somewhat radical concept
back in '98.The Vehicle Accessory business had always been
dominated by the traditional "brick and mortar" establishments.
Everyone told us that consumers would not be willing to purchase
accessories for their truck, car or SUV over the Internet without
being able to touch or see their prospective products. However,
their vision was that the Internet was going to continue to grow in
effectiveness and be a prominent tool for the future of Vehicle
In May of 2000 the business was relocated to Jamestown, ND. This
was brought about by several factors including the owner's (Scott
Bintz) need to be closer to his family and his endless obsession
with snow. Jamestown fit both criteria.
The business has continued to flourish over the years, going
through many different levels of growth, focus and strategy. But
our commitment to our consumers, our employees and our business
partners has never changed. We continue to utilize that same vision
and forward thinking we did in a basement in Spokane, Washington;
to make people's lives and vehicles better. This attitude continues
to improve our business efficiently and ultimately ourcustomers
shopping experience. Learn more about Scott Bintz.
