Chad Guffey’s motto is “Let Guff deliver your stuff,” and “stuff” is about as broad a category as it sounds.
He’ll deliver just about anything that can fit in his minivan, from a pizza to a load of groceries. And if things progress as he’d like them to, he might add larger items.
He talked about using a trailer such as the one he uses to move his race car in order to deliver tractors, cars or sheds around the county.
Until Sunday, March 12, Guffey was doing deliveries from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Thursdays through Sundays.
But after the season is over for Brown County Parks and Recreation basketball — which Guffey supervises and coaches — he’ll be delivering from 1 to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
He doesn’t deliver to every corner of the county, but for $3 in Nashville and $5 outside of Nashville, he will take anything as far as Belmont to the west, Bailey’s Bait and Tackle to the east, Van Buren Elementary School in the south, and Sprunica and Helmsburg elementary schools in the north.
For those who live further out, Guffey will meet them at the edge of his delivery territory.
On one recent night, Guffey delivered three pizzas and a package of coffee, he said. In the immediate future, he would like to get groceries to folks who have difficulty getting out.
Guffey has an extensive background in moving things from one place to another.
He delivered pizzas for 20 years, first for Smokey’s Pizza and then for Pizza King. In the same time, he also ran the wrecker for his father, Ray Guffey, owner of Brown County Tire.
Currently, he delivers for NAPA Auto Parts during the day. But if his delivery business takes off, he would like to make it full time, especially with the possibility of delivering food around town at lunch.
He is looking into acquiring a cab driver’s license, allowing him to deliver people as well, he said.
He said having a local cab service could help to prevent drunken driving in the county.
In his first few weeks in business, the response has been very positive, he said. Even though he has been dependent almost exclusively on word of mouth and social media, he has made a number of deliveries already.
“Everybody thinks it’s a great idea, and when I take the stuff to ‘em, they’re really grateful,” he said.
Thursday to Sunday, 4 to 10 p.m.
After March 12, seven days a week, 1 to 10 p.m.
