About Blue Ridge Trailers

Business Model

We offer a complete range of trailers to meet market demand, including business owners, farmers and recreational users. We only sell good to excellent quality products and set our prices using a reasonable wholesale mark-up. We consistently have the best quality products at the most competitive prices. Our lot is open and available for “window shopping” anytime with accurate and descriptive price tags on every trailer.

Our Service and Fabrication Departments provide “white glove” service to every customer including Virginia State Inspections, Maintenance, Repairs and custom fabrication of both steel and aluminum products.

Blue Ridge has only professional sales staff all of whom have lifetime experience using all types of trailers (particularly horse trailers).
