Gulf City Body and Trailer Works, which maintains a state-of-the-art full-service repair facility and a large inventory of trailers, now performs aluminum and stainless welding, steel fabrication and hydraulic work, wet line kit installation, and axle repair. The firm also holds a large inventory of truck and trailer equipment and parts.
The market size of the truck repair industry – including trailers – is estimated to be just shy of $13 billion. New business models have begun to emerge as the transport industry continues to evolve and adapt to digital ecosystems and the long-term impacts of driverless trucks. Companies such as Nikola, Einride, Daimler, and Volkswagen are all hoping to break into the future truck market, signaling changes that are only now beginning to occur in the market.
Gulf City Body and Trailer Works retain a staff of fully trained mechanics to handle all repairs and maintenance requirements for almost any make and model of trailer or truck. The company appreciates the technological changes in the market and mandates continuing education for technicians to perform the work today’s complex trucks and trailers require. The company’s technicians have the experience and training to handle all types of trailer repair, and can typically get customers’ vehicles back on the road in a timely fashion.
The company is also a full-line dealer of new, used, and rental trailers as well as other trucking equipment. Additionally, they offer a large selection of both national and brand name parts for trailers and tanks.
In addition to its other affiliations, Gulf City Body & Trailer Works, Inc. is a member of the Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida Petroleum Association. The company is located adjacent to Interstate 10, five miles east of the I-10 and I-65 connector. The firm’s property comprises ten acres with 50,000 square feet under the roof to serve the sales, service, parts, and rental needs of its customers. The company has been in business for almost 75 years.
One customer commented: “I highly recommend this company for trailer repairs and annual inspections on Hazmat tankers. They started working on my trailers the very next day after I dropped them off and got my issues taken care of in a timely manner. They are very professional and I could tell they appreciate my business as well.”
