Car Trailers Keep Things Rollin’

By: admin admin | September 24, 2012 | Comments Off on Car Trailers Keep Things Rollin’

Are you planning to show off your classic car at the show this weekend? Why not show it off on the way there too? Especially if it’s a long journey to that car show this weekend – why not protect and enhance your investment? Just think about what a ride down that greatest of classic car routes, Route 66 through Chicago, St. Louis, down to Missouri, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Gallup NM, Flagstaff, Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino to Los Angeles could do to your car’s value if anything went amiss! Instead of putting wear and tear on your beautiful show car and adding precious miles to its odometer why not protect it and showcase it in a car trailer? That way you can go Chicago to LA and back with lots of stops but without a single scratch.

Avoid Scratches, Flat Tires, and More

It’s no secret that the value of a show car greatly depends on the condition of the car. And unfortunately driving the car, especially long distance and highway driving, put the condition of the vehicle at risk. Car accidents happen every day. So if you do plan to motor west or east, north, or south for that matter, don’t take a chance on damaging the car en route to a show. Keep that valuable gem safe and sound and even on display in a car trailer instead.

I know we’d all rather not think of all of the calamities that could befall our precious show car just driving it to the show but they are realities. Even a rock innocently kicked up by another vehicle or a piece of gravel flying from a passing truck can cause considerable damage to your car’s glass and/or paint job. And that custom paintwork is expensive. A nail in one of your tires can wreck the entire weekend and cost you a small fortune just for the replacement tire. Heaven forbid an accident, caused by another driver’s negligence or by sheer bad luck. Your years of work restoring that show car or just the time and money spent finding the perfect vehicle for you can be lost in an instant. Finding another car like yours could be next to impossible. Why take the risk?

Custom-Designed Car Trailer

A car trailer can be custom designed to meet your needs. You’ll need a ramp to get your vehicle into the trailer, of course but then you can add lots of other features like custom shelving and storage as well. Perhaps the greatest option for show cars is Custom Trailers USA’s glass sided trailer. Get to a car show and you don’t even have to worry about pulling the car out. A glass sided trailer with a raised floor really shows off the whole car profile. You could use glass sides to showcase your car and attract attention wherever you go. Clear glass-side trailers can be built from 12′ to 53′ in length.

And of course your custom trailer can also provide you with advertising on the go. You can promote your car, your brand, your business, or anything else you choose by adding custom graphics to the exterior of your trailer. Custom Trailers USA can help you design a great exterior graphics package that will deliver the message you want to communicate.

Finally, don’t forget to put safety first before you hit the road with your precious cargo. Make sure the tire pressure in your trailer and towing vehicle is set appropriately. Ensure that you have the right hitch to do the job. And, of course brush up on your towing etiquette.

Other Things to Keep in Mind

It’s important to observe all speed limits, use lower gears and break intermittently when on a descending grade. Allow for greater following and longer stopping distances behind other vehicles. Remember to consistently use safety gear for both short and long distances. Utilize wide trailering mirrors and allow other vehicles to pass. By following these procedures and driving a safe and reliable trailer purchased from Custom Trailers USA, your stress can easily be reduced and you can have a safe and enjoyable trip, while reducing any dangers to yourself, your family, vehicle, and possessions.

Protect what’s valuable to you. With a Custom Trailers USA car trailer you can ensure that your show car investment is well protected and well presented. With a recommended glass sided display trailer you can arrive at the show as part of the show.

Racing Trailers Provide Branding On and Off the Track

Racing is a popular sport. Don’t just market your sponsor’s name on the track!  Keep it going by marketing the brand with a racing trailer.  On and off the track, this is a great way of keeping your brand in first place with consumers.  A racing trailer can remind people about upcoming events and get them excited for the race at the same time!

Every year racing seems to make a bigger and bigger impact in sports.  When people think of racing, most think of NASCAR racers with those brightly colored cars speeding around the track with sponsors name covering every inch.  There are brand names from A-Z that these cars promote every week. From week to week, fans see brands like Tide, Pepsi, Home Depot and more.  All of this becomes targeted marketing and leads to increased sales.  Traditionally, this is the only time these cars are marketing the brand on them… But with a racing trailer from Custom Trailers USA, these brands – national and local – can be seen off the track too!

Get Noticed!

The whole reason for these sponsors on the cars is to increase exposure – to a large audience.  Now, you can also promote when the car comes off the track and as you move along the highway.  Promote your car, company name and brand while you travel from race to race and event to event.  Let those on the road see right into your trailer and view your car as you head from town to town, race to race.  When you are marketing, every little dollar counts – and you want to make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck.  A racing trailer holding your race car, keeps your advertising working for you, even when you aren’t in the driver’s seat, and also keeps your car safe and protected!

Giving Back

It’s the fans who keep the sport going, so making sure to thank and give back is always important to race teams and drivers.  Racing trailers can help you give back and promote yourself and where you’ll be at the same time.  Schedule a meet and greet with fans and use the racing trailer as part of your event set up. Fans love going to driver appearances and meeting the person they watch every race.  Getting up close and personal with car is also a huge part of these events.  Kids, young and old, will flock to see, touch and look inside the car! The trailer provides advertising when you arrive at a location for the driver, the brand and your sponsors.  Make sure everyone knows where you are when you set up! These trailers make a huge splash at outings and really draw attention to your appearances.  Racing trailers provide advertising without anyone having to say a word.

It takes a lot to race – so why not let your car work for you for a little while!  Be proud and show your car on the open road, so everyone knows who you are.  Showcase your car on the open road and the track and get double the exposure for your marketing dollars.  Why make people wonder, “What’s in the trailer?”  Let them see it – and start talking!

Custom Marketing Trailers Shed New Light on Businesses

By: admin admin | September 4, 2012 | Comments Off on Custom Marketing Trailers Shed New Light on Businesses

Moving supplies from state to state can be tricky business. Between the cost of purchasing a trailer and the skyrocketing price of gas, transporting materials can severely cut into the profit margin. With a simple, unmarked trailer the cost of transporting materials can make a large dent in one area of your company’s budget. However, money may be hiding in other parts of your budget that could soften the blow of that four dollar per gallon price tag. By investing in a custom marketing trailer you can take money allotted for marketing and put it toward transportation while still getting a unique kind of advertising. Simply driving a trailer with your logos and promotions custom painted on each side exposes your company to a new audience. Instead of purchasing a stand-still billboard that can only target a passerby audience, a custom trailer can be taken through any neighborhood to show new clients your products and your supplies can make it to their destination with time to spare.

A Worthy Investment

But these trailers have more than just a pretty face. Each custom trailer is not only beautiful, but functional as well. Investing in a custom marketing trailer will help transport supplies with ease as these trailers can be customized to fit your needs on the inside as well, allowing this investment to have more than just cosmetic value.  Every company has different supply needs so each one has different transportation needs as well. Purchasing a standard trailer leaves little room for adjustment which may mean trying to push a five-foot-tall display into a three-foot-tall space. Using these standard trailers could be disastrous to your equipment, but where the average trailer fails a custom trailer shines. From shelving to storage, a custom trailer will provide unique features to accommodate your business. Instead of worrying whether that giant display will tip over and break during the trip, you can enjoy watching people take notice of the customized trailer driving through their neighborhood.

Advertising While You Drive

Once your trailer is all packed and ready, it’s finally time to head out toward your destination. This is where your marketing budget earns its money. In a standard white trailer no one knows what you’re doing or what business you represent; there is no advertising happening whatsoever. A custom trailer tells a completely different story. In that custom marketing trailer you can be telling local potential customers that your business is right down the road. You can be telling non-local potential customers that your business is ready and willing to travel to meet their needs. Instead of that dusty sign on the side of the highway your marketing budget is paying for an advertisement that will reach a targeted audience of people who may need your product or service. This is a group of people that may never be aware of your company otherwise, people who could choose to take their business elsewhere simply because they do not know your company exists. Using a custom trailer is also a much more versatile form of advertising. Unlike that clumsy billboard your custom trailer can be changed to reflect new sales, special announcements or even unique services that may be offered.

Additional Options Available

These advertisements will be serving you at every stop light and corner by drawing in a crowd that may not have otherwise been exposed to your business. It is when the trailer reaches its final destination, however, that the customization really comes to life. Options like flip-up advertising signs, fold out stages, windows or cases for souvenirs and concessions will have been tailored specifically to fit your advertising needs. These extra selections give much more versatility than that standard trailer, which can only accommodate a few towing necessities. With the easy set up custom marketing trailers provide each one can be used for more than just transporting supplies. While you may need to haul new product one weekend, the next weekend that trailer could be parked at a local street fair with its stage and large display case showing the community what your business is all about. Each window and easy-to-open sign pushes you one step further than your competition by creating a new experience for customers. Custom businesses have custom needs, and a custom marketing trailer can help.

Increase that Return on Investment!

From hauling to advertising, your custom marketing trailer will make the journey much more worthwhile. This truly personal trailer can combine two parts of the budget and make each one more profitable. With a trailer where nearly every inch can be customized to fit your requirements, you will never have to worry about not having space for your supplies. Many hauling and advertising needs can be filled with this one simple investment, and a custom trailer’s distinctive method of marketing will pay for itself as new customers are exposed to your company. The decision to purchase a trailer is an important one, so be sure to consider the benefits of a custom marketing trailer for your next hauling and advertising needs.

Cooking on the Road with a Portable Kitchen

By: admin admin | August 27, 2012 | Comments Off on Cooking on the Road with a Portable Kitchen

Are you a restaurant owner with a signature burger that you wish you could share with the world?  Or maybe you are a BBQ fanatic who dreams of competing in national competitions? Or are you a caterer whose business is limited due to only having access to one geographic location? Owning a portable kitchen would remedy any of these problems and help make all of your culinary dreams come true!

Increase Your Reach with a Portable Kitchen

The primary reason to own a portable kitchen is that you can reach more markets. A portable kitchen concession trailer allows a business owner or culinary team to travel a great distance away from the business’s physical location without worrying that the food will turn out poorly due to the drive. Instead preparing everything in advance and keeping the temperatures steady, a portable kitchen allows for food to be prepared on site, no matter the distance traveled. A portable kitchen concession trailer opens the door for more business opportunities, and could potentially get your food into the mouths of people from all over the country.

Take Your Marketing To Go

In addition to transporting impressive menu items and signature dishes all over the country, a portable kitchen concession trailer also allows you to take marketing that you’ve already paid for with you. Instead of buying advertising space in the location you are traveling to, you can advertise your business on the outside of the trailer with custom graphics or display your business name on the side where everyone can see it. Or you can even create a truly unique experience for new (or returning) customers by placing a QR code on the outside of your portable kitchen trailer. While they wait in line to try some of your delicious items, they can easily access your website to learn more about your menu, permanent locations, and the business!

Customizing Your Dream Portable Kitchen

One of the best aspects about owning your own portable kitchen concession trailer is that you are able to customize the insides to your specific needs. If you need extra storage space, cabinets can be installed throughout the trailer. If you want to accomplish the travel with as few stops as possible, have a bathroom installed inside of the concession trailer. Can you imagine owning a fully equipped portable kitchen with sinks, ovens, gas burner cook top, and concession windows? With a portable kitchen concession stand, you can have that and a whole lot more. Or, if you do not want or need all the bells and whistles, you can design your own custom portable kitchen trailer just the way you want to so it fits your specific business needs.

No matter what your culinary business dreams are, from selling famous BBQ sandwiches or handing out snow cones in the park, a portable kitchen concession trailer is just what you need to take your business to the next level. You can travel the country delivering your signature items to new markets and spread the word about your business. And a portable kitchen concession trailer from Custom Trailers USA is customizable in any way to help meet your business needs. The professionals there can help you create your dream kitchen away from home!
