New Pricing Structure

Why the Change?

In our commitment to enhancing your experience, we are streamlining our pricing structure by eliminating the refundable deposit. This adjustment will allow us to focus on maintaining and improving our trailers for you. Expect upgrades for our existing trailers, including canopies, tracking devices, and online manuals. We’re also diligently working on a demonstration video series to support your poultry processing needs.

Rental fee may be paid online below or by reserving over the phone and mailing and check.
