A flatbed trailer rental company that was founded in 2015 has already seen enough demand for their unique business model that the owner has opened a new location in Murrieta, Calif.
“We are excited and proud to be part of the community here in Southern California and look forward to contributing to the success of our clientele here,” says owner Brad Borst.
One of the major reasons behind the success of Big Trailer Rentals, Borst says, is spelled out right in its name. The company only offers big flatbed trailer rental services. These trailers begin at around 20 ft. in length but can stretch for as long as 40 ft. Their inventory includes bumper pull and gooseneck trailer rental options.
Focusing solely on flatbed trailer rental services in Colorado proved so effective that Borst felt there was a need for it elsewhere.
“I started this company because I realized how many customers only need a large flatbed trailer temporarily – maybe once a week or once a month. Some only need the trailer once, period. So buying one doesn’t make a lot of sense, especially when they also need to pay for a place to keep it,” Borst says.
“Instead of spending thousands of dollars, customers come to us and rent trailers for less than $100.”
Big Trailer Rentals’ customers run the gamut. Their clients use them for everything from hotshot services to shipping or hauling large amounts of inventory. Since opening back in July, the demand for their flatbed trailer rental service has been so high that Borst reported he’s already planning to invest more than $100,000 into his fleet over the following year just to keep up with demand.
