Looking for a car trailer? Cost increase reaching 250%

Many different things can impact the price we pay for things. Because putting a trailer together is a process, any disruption to that process will affect the bottom line. Each link in the supply chain provides great value when things are running smoothly, however, in the wake of COVID-19, things have been far from smooth. These disruptions can take time to fix and, unfortunately, it is impossible to know how long the road to recovery may be.

The effects of the Pandemic are still being felt across the globe. In virtually every industry, there have been shocks with:

  • Suppliers dialing back production
  • Labor shortages
  • Changing consumer habits
  • Rising costs of materials (steel, lumber, aluminum)
  • Delays in global trade and shipping
  • Increased freight costs

To give a peek into the trailer industry, and for the sake of transparency, we want to share what we are seeing with our costs and how our company has been affected by the current state of the economy. As you can see from the graph, we have seen significant increases since the beginning of 2020. On average, the cost for us to put together a trailer has gone up nearly 250% over the last 6 years, with some items even surpassing 400%. We do everything we can to keep prices low, but ultimately some of these increases are passed on to the customer.
