Golden West Trailer Sales
Ray Claridge, our founder and owner, had worked for many years in the cinema vehicle industry. He’d owned many trailers and he was looking to buy a new one. So, he went to a National Truck show to check out what was available.
That’s where he met the owner of some trailer manufacturers. They started talking about what Ray wanted, which gave him pause. He decided he had to think about exactly what he wanted a little more, so he left the show for Sacramento, where he had a business meeting.
Fresh from the discussion, on the drive to Sacramento, Ray kept an eye out for any trailer dealers along his route. He noticed a few in the Bakersfield area, but realized there were none in the Antelope Valley and Los Angeles areas.
Now, Ray had a real affinity for trailers, and when he realized there was a gap in the market, he considered it a sign. He decided to speak to the same manufacturers he’d met earlier when he returned. He wanted to see if he could become a trailer dealer. So, he returned to the show, ordered his trailer and made a deal.
RAY CLARIDGE WAS NOW A PROUD, NEW TRAILER DEALER!
A short time later, in 1988, Ray opened Golden West Trailer Sales at an old gas station in the Antelope Valley. He only had one brand available and a mere 15 trailers in his inventory. But Ray was determined to succeed.
Through hard work and outstanding customer service, Golden West Trailer Sales expanded so fast in the following three years that they’d outgrown the gas station. Clearly, it was time to move.
Ray found a piece of property in Acton, California, which he developed. In 1992, when the new facility was ready, Golden West Trailer Sales moved to 1686 West Sierra Highway in Acton.
GOLDEN WEST TRAILER SALES: THE MISSION
At the time, Ray also expanded the company’s offering with additional trailer brands to make sure his customers had plenty to choose from.
However, he made sure to choose only excellent brands. Ray’s mission from the start had been to ensure his customers’ ultimate satisfaction, and that meant ensuring he only offered them the best.
It’s a principle that continues to drive us to this day. Golden West Trailer Sales has grown to the point where we offer 8 different brands and have an inventory of 200 trailers in stock on 5 acres of land.
But, no matter how many brands or trailers we have, we always stick to our number one mission, and that’s to provide outstanding service to you, our customers.
WE DON’T SELL TRAILERS, WE BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.
Many of our customers have returned multiple times to purchase new trailers or upgrade existing ones. And we’re always happiest when we see customers returning because it proves we’ve done our job right and offered them an outstanding experience.
If you’re a new customer, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’ll do for you what we’ve done for so many others. We’ll solve your trailer needs, no matter how complicated, and offer you an excellent experience that will make you a life-long customer.
