Why a Trailer Instead of a Van Conversion?
There are many reasons why you should consider a grooming trailer, and the first reason is its affordable price. A van conversion can cost $60,000, $80,000, or even $100,000. Let's face it – you're in this business to make money. Not only is the initial expense prohibitive, but you need to add a commercial vehicle to your insurance policy or buy a special commercial policy. If your van ever needs to be in the shop, you're out of business until you get it back. You may start losing customers too.
Our mobile grooming salons are lightweight. They can be pulled with virtually any six- or eight-cylinder pickup truck or SUV. Many cars and even some four-cylinder vehicles can handle our trailers too. If your tow vehicle ever breaks down, you're still in business.
Most trailers are covered for liability as an extension of your tow vehicle. Please check with your insurance company for specific details as laws vary by state. You will only need collision and comprehensive coverage on a trailer.
