THE DTW DIFFERENCE
Why buy your trailer from Davis Trailer World instead of any other local trailer business or even a big box store?
The answer is simple… It’s the DTW Difference. So, what exactly does that mean?
At Davis Trailer World, we offer full service during your trailer buying experience. That means, you leave here with everything you need to be safe, legal and fully operational. We also ask the questions to match the product with your needs and expectations.
Here are some of the services that we provide that are unique to DTW:
- We complete the DMV paperwork to title and register your trailer in NYS. All you have to do is sign a few pieces of paper. We also issue the license plate and inspection for your new (or used) trailer.
- Our fully staffed shop of 6 full time technicians and assistants are able to complete many additional options on your trailer in order to customize it to your specific needs and wants.
Some popular additions/options that are added to trailers include (but are not limited to):
TRAILERS, ARE THEY THE NEXT TOILET PAPER?
The answer is yes!!
After over 35 years in the trailer industry, I am definitely no rookie, but the circumstances surrounding Covid have certainly been new and challenging.
With the trailer demand being higher than ever across all segments, it has fully depleted factory inventories and dropped dealer inventories across the country to sparse amounts.
I have seen dump trailers have a spike and wow – it takes 4 months to get one. Custom cattle trailers have 9 -10 month lead times, and some specialty unit lead times take up to 13-14 months to manufacture. In the spring, enclosed car hauler orders will likely stretch out to a 5 – 6 month wait time. Once these spikes go away, the normal 4 – 7 week wait times should return.
Although the pandemic will be blamed for the shortage of trailers, it really started at the end of 2019. The year 2019 was a banner year and lead times were 2-3 weeks longer than typical lead times. When 2020 started out very strong, manufacturing factories had plenty of orders and little inventory. Because of this, we placed extra orders sooner than usual. Finally, March arrived, and the pandemic with it. Some of our manufacturers closed but some did not. We saw customers rush in to get trailers before they disappeared. We never closed, but did reduce hours and closed on weekends for a bit. We started out 2020 very well stocked, and for a moment I thought I over-purchased!! Other than the cargo and car haulers, the flow of the product was very steady and we were able to fill almost all of our customer’s needs. Our service facility had all the workload it could handle. Our inventory levels depleted fast and were at the lowest levels in our history.
