Who We Are

We provide solutions to our customers from the first mile to the second-to-last mile of their supply chain, and our purpose is to make our customer’s lives easier. Our core values include doing the right thing, and having a can do attitude.

In 2016, we started with two locations in Evansville, Indiana and Memphis, Tennessee with around 5,400 units. Since then, we have expanded to 17 locations throughout the U.S., and grown our asset base to over 17,000 units. Our current team has overseen and integrated more than 5 acquisitions and launched 4 new greenfield locations. All strategic acquisitions and developments have placed us within key markets, filled coverage gaps in our network, and placed us within close proximity of our customers.

Our acquisitions have included Arizona Storage Rental, with three locations in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Tucson; FLEET Trailer Leasing in Kansas City, MO; Advantage Trailer Leasing in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Austin, and Longview, TX; and most recently Ala-Ga Trailer Leasing in Montgomery and Ozark, AL. Our greenfield developments include our Meisler brand’s Louisville, Nashville, and St. Louis locations, and our FITS brand’s Columbus location.

Our employees matter here at ATRG. Without our people, we could not provide the level of service that we strive for our customers. With the support of Wind Point Partners, ATRG is poised to tackle the growth of our clients’ needs and remain a force within the industry. As your business grows, we are ready to grow with you.

What We Do

American Trailer Rental Group is dedicated to providing our clients with the very best products and services in the industry today. We offer a variety of well-maintained FHWA certified trailers including 48 and 53 foot dry vans, flatbeds, and drop decks. With flexible short or long-term leasing and rental options fit to meet any budget, our team can work with you to find the plan that meets your needs. One of our biggest strengths is value in both price and quality.

In addition to storage, cartage, and over-the-road trailer rental and leasing, we offer additional services to keep your business running smoothly. If your trailer needs repairs at any time during your rental or lease, many of our locations offer on-site maintenance services.
