If you have been to our website, or to our location in Harrisburg, PA, you may have heard the term “scratch and dent” used describing some of our trailers. I thought this phrase might need a little explanation. I will start by saying that our scratch and dent trailers we are selling are not used trailers. They are brand new, and we offer a 1 year warranty on them, same as if they were not part of our scratch and dent sale. We have many of these trailers arriving weekly. The response to the discounts have been great, and its hard to keep certain sizes in stock.
Now to better define, or describe what we are calling our scratch and dent specials. They are made by Carry On Trailer Manufacturing. This same company sells trailers to home improvement chain stores across the country, and a few other chain stores as well. See, these places are strictly retails of these trailers. They do not have a service department, or even do the proper notary work on site either. They simply, just sell them. So if a trailer comes in on a load damaged, and yes, they come in as tractor trailer loads full, and a light is broken, to those retailers, that trailer is no good to them. They refuse it, it gets shipped back to the factory and is dubbed a scratch and dent.
Here is where we come in. We buy these scratch and dent trailers. But in all actuality, they are just doubled shipped. We replace that broken light, and make sure everything is on the up and up, and voila, brand new trailer at a discount price. We have such a good reaction to the savings, that we keep getting them in to pass the savings on to you. As I mentioned already, 1 year warranty. Customers have told us that they could do more damage to the trailer on the way home than what we are calling scratch and dents. We stand behind all that we sell and service, so don’t think for one minute that the scratch and dent trailer is a used trailer, or one that isn’t road worthy. Just a few minor cosmetic blemishes at a great price.
Keep checking our website for all the new arrivals. I am sure you will find the perfect trailer to fit your style!
