Floyd Waddell purchased his first truck for transporting goods in 1924. Prior to this, he had started the transfer company with a horse and a wagon. Floyd's son Ellis ran the business after his father. Ellis’ wife Helen took over after his passing. Helen's son Walter and grandson Marty are the current owners/operators along with Walter's wife Brenda and Marty's wife Pam.
In 2004 Waddell Transfer, Inc. built a new, larger facility with four bays and a loading dock, located at 6055 Lee Highway in Atkins, VA, giving us the capability to grow as our needs change.
