Our History

Parks Superior Sales started off very small with a desire to make their business a success. In the beginning, Wilbur Parks, the founder was a one man band handling sales & service. A few years later, Bob Parks came into the business to help his father get the business on its feet. They were a Father & Son team on the road every day, traveling to Funeral homes up and down the East Coast, building relationships and selling & servicing their vehicles, one customer at a time. Today, nearly 70 years later and still family run, Parks Superior Sales has evolved into one of the largest volume Funeral Car Dealerships in the country. The dealership sits on nearly 7 acres, and is 100% dedicated to just the Funeral Car industry. You can see and feel their passion when you speak with Michael Parks, who now runs the business.
