Right caliper issue

I'm looking at a shuttle bus, and the right caliper seems to be sticking. Can anyone tell me where I can possibly take it to get this fixed? I'm in east Tennessee.

If it's a van-cutout (Ford, Chevy), nearly any respectable shop should be able to do the work.

It's a flat-nosed 6 window, I've had one shop inform me its way too big for them lol
Being that it's diesel, does it HAVE to go to a diesel mechanic for this?

No. You just need a place that has big jacks and stands. Places that do truck tires usually do brakes too

are you interested in learning to do this yourself?
fairly simple and we can talk you through it if so.
you said you were looking at one that has this issue?
ask the seller to have it fixed to get his asking price or to drop the price a grand because you have to get it fixed.
it wont cost that much to do it but just the headache of finding a garage, mechanics labor rate, and parts are at least double of what you could do yourself for 300-400$ and that is includingthe tools to do it yourself.
