The Big Haul

Texas tough trailers for any job, big or small

It’s no secret that Park & Sell is the easiest, fastest and most convenient way to buy or sell cars, boats and RVs in Montgomery County, but it’s quickly becoming the “go to” place to shop for top quality trailers and hauling equipment at a more than reasonable price.

Montgomery Truck Sales, the division of Park & Sell handling a wide range of traditional and special purpose trailers, features a great lineup of equipment from Texas Pride out of Madison, Texas. From basic utility trailers for sporting enthusiasts to large gooseneck, flatbed, dump, lowboy and other trailers, Montgomery Truck Sales is the place to find what you need to haul what you want.

“A lot of folks think of Park & Sell as a great place to buy ? or sell ? a used vehicle at a great price,” said owner Jerry Arthur. “But we also carry a variety of trailers and hauling equipment for ranchers, agricultural purposes and commercial clients. If you have something to move, we probably have what you need.”

After 17 years in business, Park & Sell has earned a highly favorable reputation for helping connect buyers and sellers via their unique consignment lot located between Conroe and Montgomery. The facility features a good inventory of vehicles, great value and absolutely no sales pressure.

“We work with sellers to establish a fair price and we are totally transparent about any issues or flaws,” said Arthur. “More than half of our business comes from people who have bought or sold from us previously. We treat buyers and sellers with respect ? and that’s why they come back.”

Since taking over the facility in 2008, Arthur has worked to expand the inventory and capabilities of Park & Sell. The addition of a lineup of quality trailers is a logical extension of that philosophy, according to Arthur.

“Our location gets a lot of attention from the nearly 45,000 vehicles that pass by it every day,” he said. “But it’s important to note that a lot of our business is done via the Internet as well. A growing number of our customers shop for vehicles and trailers on our website.”

Indeed, half of the business originates within a 20 mile radius of Montgomery County, but the rest comes from outside the region. Arthur routinely ships vehicles and trailers to customers outside the Houston area ? as far away as Alaska, in fact. With a reputation for integrity and attention to detail, knowledgeable customers know they can rely on Park & Sell and Montgomery Truck Sales.

“We’re very picky about the vehicles we accept,” said Arthur. “We do a thorough inspection, checking for safety and functionality. Our commitment is to both the buyer and the seller.”

Smaller, 5’x8′ trailers are popular in the fall and winter for hunters and sporting enthusiasts hauling all terrain vehicles and other equipment. Montgomery Truck Sales offers new trailers that are safe and roadworthy at a fair price. But they also offer bigger trailers for bigger jobs: car haulers for one to eight vehicles, flatbed trailers up to 45 feet in length and dump trailers that will hold up to the biggest loads.

“For those who have special requirements, customization is also an option,” added Arthur. “We have years in the business and if we don’t have exactly what you need, there’s a good chance we can get it for you.”

And as independent, family owned businesses, Park & Sell and Montgomery Truck Sales are committed to service and integrity. Over 90 percent of the vehicles accepted at Park & Sell have sold within 45 days on the lot ? some have sold the same day they arrived at the facility.

“A lot of people just don’t want to get involved in answering questions, scheduling times for prospective buyers to look at the vehicle or negotiating a price,” said Arthur. “There’s also a security factor of opening yourself up to strangers.”

With Park & Sell, there is no need to interact with strangers. The experts at Park & Sell handle the negotiations, tags, taxes, license and title. Just pick up a check when the vehicle sells; it’s as simple as that.

“And if you need to haul or transport something, we have a great inventory of brand new, quality trailers ready to go,” said Arthur. “You can come by and inspect them first hand, or go online and see what we have. We make shopping ? and buying ? very easy.”
