April 23, 2019
Are you looking for a trailer service shop or a place to buytrailer parts and trailer accessories in the Chicago area? Look no further thanAdvantage Trailer.
Advantage Trailer is much more than a trailer dealer andfabricator. While we are proud to be the premier trailer dealer in Chicagoland,we also offer a top-notch service department, a wide range of parts andaccessories, and tire sales and service.
As a local, family-owned and operated small business, we canhandle all your service and maintenance needs. If you are a business, thisallows you to avoid down time and keep your trailers working for your business.If you are an individual, this allows you to work with a shop close to home andavoid long hauls just to get your trailer fixed.
This sets us apart from other trailer dealers. We don't justsell you a trailer and move on to the next customer. We’re a one-stop shop thatcan handle your warranty and service needs and we stock the parts andaccessories that you may need down the road.
We operate with a service-oriented mentality and a personalapproach that values relationships. That means that if you are our customer,you are OUR customer. And we are proud of that.
This was demonstrated when Jeanette DesJardins, founder ofCarChix, was at a race in South Georgia and another attendee backed into hertrailer. As luck would have it, Advantage service manager Dan Rocco was at thesame event enjoying some time off, and when he saw the damage to her trailer,he fixed it on the spot, no questions asked.
“It was crazy enough to run into one of the guys who builtmy trailer at an event 1,000 miles away,” DesJardinsexplained afterward. “But then for him to go out of his way to fixit before I hit the road, it just speaks volumes about Advantage Trailer.That’s the kind of people they are, and if I ever decide to get another trailerI know who I’ll go with again.”
