Mckinney Trailer Rentals is expanding its operation into trailer sales, the company announced Feb. 27.
The Brea, Calif.-based company typically provides over-the-road trailer rentals and leases.
“Mckinney Trailer Rentals prides itself on being a solutions provider to the transportation industry,” Mckinney President Dave Tavares said in a statement. “We have listened to our customers’ need for used late model trailers. When renting or leasing is not an option for our customers, Mckinney will be able to source and sell equipment directly to our valued customers.”
Mckinney already has a few types of trailers ready for purchase, including late-model reefers and dry vans, along with specialty equipment. Winston Madrigal will be leading the new division as director of trailer sales.
Host Seth Clevenger went to CES 2020 in Las Vegas and met with Rich Mohr of Ryder Fleet Management Solutions and Stephan Olsen of the Paccar Innovation Center to discuss how high-tech the industry has become. Listen to a snippet above, and to hear the full episode, go to RoadSigns.TTNews.com.
“Our core values include honesty, integrity and outstanding customer service,” Madrigal said. “Taking care of our customers is always at the forefront of what we do at Mckinney. We are confident that our trailer sales division will enable us to better serve our existing customer base and bring new customers into the Mckinney family.”
Mckinney Trailer Sales is located in Fontana, Calif. The company already has locations for its rentals and leases side in Washington, Oregon, Colorado, California, Arizona and Texas. There it rents dry vans, refrigerated trailers, flatbeds, curtain vans, chassis and storage trailers. — Transport Topics
