Benefits of Buying a Factory Direct Cargo Trailer

When searching for a cargo trailer, many people discover there are numerous trailer "lots" in their area. While this may seem like the most convenient option for buying a trailer, that convenience often comes at a cost. In today's post, we'll review some of the benefits of choosing a factory direct cargo trailer

Buying Off The Lot

Buying a ready-made trailer from a lot can come with a few drawbacks. Although they may be able to find exactly what they're looking for, in many cases customers have very specific needs for their cargo trailer--needs that may have to be sacrificed in order to buy something off the lot the same day.

In addition to limited options, buying off the lot also means a higher price tag. In most cases, trailer dealerships have to increase their pricing due to the fact that their inventory could spend months sitting on their lot. Generally speaking, dealerships may have millions of dollars worth of inventory on their lot, and most (if not all) of that inventory is actually owned by a bank or finance company. The dealers often finance their inventory through something called floorpan financing--a type of short term loan that is usually paid off in a few months. This is why dealerships try to sell their inventory as quickly as possible. This gives extra incentive to dealerships to use high pressure sales tactics.

Buying Factory Direct

When you buy a trailer direct from the manufacturer, you may have to wait a while to get the final product, but you can be sure that when you do, you'll have the exact trailer model you want with all the features you want. Additionally, factory direct trailers are often available at a lower price point, since the seller doesn't have to worry about covering financing costs typically associated with dealerships.

The downside to factory direct purchasing is the waiting period. If you are in a hurry to find an adequate cargo trailer, going to a dealership may make sense. However, if you are able to wait for your custom trailer to be made to order and to your exact specifications, buying factory direct from the manufacturer is almost certainly the best way to go.
