About Performance Specialty Trailer Sales; the business was created in 1992 by the current owner after retiring from another occupation. The sole purpose of Performance Specialty Trailer Sales was to generate funds to support the current owners’ hobbies such as hunting, fishing, hotrods, motorcycles and boats, which it did and then some.
This business has generated low seven figure annual sales on the trailers alone. The Performance Specialty Trailer Sales has never been properly exploited as a business should be. A new Trailer Sales business is exactly like a Car Dealership; in fact the DMV Dealer License allows the sales of used Cars and Trucks, exactly the same as a used car lot.
In the past 30+ years there has never been a Parts and Accessories Sales program and there has never been a Service and Repair program. While there is good profits in the trailers themselves, the real profits are the same as a car dealership, they are in service and repair and the sales of parts and accessories, programs that were never started at Performance Specialty Trailer Sales.
There has also never been a solid advertising program, just the simple throw away papers in the beginning and then, as it is now, only on Craig’s List after the demise of the throw away papers. Sales to U.S., state and local governments were never exploited but they came by word of mouth advertisement, through the website and word of mouth. Sales have been made all over the United States, Hawaii, Australia and New Zeeland and shipped via Matson Lines in Los Angeles.
Note: Performance Specialty Trailer Sales would be a natural addition to any existing Used or New Car lot. The sales of the trailers and trailer parts and accessories would be pure gravy sales and profits to any existing used car lot.
Additionally, Performance Specialty Trailer Sales is the oldest Carson Trailer dealer in the US, older than any of the existing Carson Trailer Company owned retail sales lots. As a reminder, the stocking program with Carson is not included in the sale of the business.
The new owner of Performance Specialty Trailer Sales has the choice to take on a new line of trailers or negotiate directly with the owner of Carson Trailer Company to continue the stocking program that has been in place for 30 of the 31 years that Performance Specialty Trailer Sales has existed. Also note that the DMV Dealer License also allows the sale of New and Used trailers as well as used Cars and Trucks. The DMV Dealer license is not transferrable, the new owner would be required to secure a DMV issued Dealer license.
