XTRA Lease announced March 11 it is selling hundreds of trailers from the company’s rental locations throughout the United States and Canada. XTRA Lease initiated the sales effort to cycle selected equipment through its fleet.

“Trailer sales and conditional sale financing are important areas within XTRA Lease,” says Bob Keller, senior vice president of sales. “Periodically, we take a look at our inventory and our fleet mix. Then we determine what adjustments are necessary to right-size the fleet to specific target markets.”

XTRA Lease is focusing sales efforts on 53- and 48-foot dry vans, single- and multi-temp reefers, and a host of storage vans. Available trailers include swing- and roll-door models, spring- and air-ride suspensions, aluminum and translucent roofs and more, from several vintage years. The used trailers for sale come from the XTRA Lease rental fleet and generally have lower mileage than equipment of similar vintage.

“Depending on a fleet’s strategy, we can meet their needs,” Keller says. “Whether that need is rental, lease, conditional sale financing or outright sales, XTRA Lease can create a solution for them that includes many value-added services. We now have the opportunity to position some excellent units within fleets through sales.”

Interested buyers should contact the nearest XTRA Lease location or call 800-325-1453, ext. 4067.

Based in St. Louis and owned by Berkshire Hathaway, XTRA Lease is a provider of over-the-road trailers for rent or lease in the United States and Canada. With more than 80 locations, the company offers a fleet of more than 125,000 trailers, including dry vans, flatbeds, reefers, storage trailers and specialty equipment.
