With the acceleration of contactless shopping due to the pandemic and the entrance of online-only dealers, consumers have increased expectations for their car buying experience and dealer services like delivery.
In a recent study, less than a third of younger consumers prefer conducting car sales & aftersales in person at a dealership. Those same consumers were even more interested in contactless services, with half of them willing to pay extra for services like contactless delivery to their door.
While home delivery might have once been considered a luxury, it’s quickly becoming a customer expectation. As a leader in the auto industry, Cottrell is invested in ensuring our dealership partners are prepared for the future.
In addition to existing 1-car, 2-car and enclosed solutions, Cottrell is happy to partner on custom solutions to meet specific needs. Delivery units fit a variety of trucks, including some already found on a dealership lot.
Cottrell products are built to the highest standards. With over 100 years of combined experience, our engineering team is constantly working to improve our products, ensure structural integrity and customize our car haulers to meet the specifications of your loads.
A 2 year structural warranty is the best in the business. Many individual parts and systems also include additional warranties.
Zinc rich epoxy primer electro-static paint process and rust inhibitor inside the bottom rails will keep your equipment looking fresh and is available on all models.
Our haulers are born from the best materials available, including Domex 100,000 yield strength steel and aluminum alloys.

Cottrell haulers are engineered with your bottom line in mind. Whether it's minimizing weight or meeting new environmental regulations, we're focused on optimizing your car haulers to save you money.
From aluminum hydraulic cylinders, air tanks and valves, to lightweight parflex hose and accessories, our engineers have maximized lightweight materials to reduce weight.
TIRE INFLATION MONITORING
As an optional upgrade, Cottrell car haulers can have tire inflation monitoring systems to further maximize your fuel efficiency.
We build the most driver-friendly car haulers in the industry. Whether great ideas start with our engineers or our customers, we're continuously optimizing our haulers with features that increase driver safety and comfort.
Patented quick release ratchet tie down systems, LED lights with ‘fit and forget’ connectors and gravitational slide out loading skids help you get loaded and on the road.
Fall protection kits and extended catwalks are engineered with driver safety in mind.
Door openings and loading angles are optimized for ease of use and to prevent damages.
COLD WEATHER OPTIONS
For cold weather areas, upgrade with side curtain and king pin apron kits, thinner hydraulic fluid, tuff coat hose protectant and aluminum belly pans.
While Cottrell offers over 40 different trailer models to fit your applications, we know there's no universal solution. Our engineers will work with you to use your hauling routes and the vehicle types you carry to create a fully optimized piece of equipment.
SHORT HAUL VS LONG HAUL
Depending on your route needs, Cottrell engineers can work with you to create a car hauler that's optimized to fit more vehicles for long hauls or minimize steps in the loading sequence for short hauls.
With state of the art paint booths, we can match any custom color. An electro static paint process leaves your hauler with a durable finish that prevents rust and comes with a 5 year limited warranty.
Cottrell equipment is built to last, but if you need maintenance, repair or refurbishment, we're here to help.
