Company History

A note from the Owner, Paul Auten

The idea for The Trailer Guy, Inc. began in 1998 when my father, Dick Auten, had a vision to make moving easier. He wanted the relocation process to be painless for families, especially those that were expecting some sort of delay in buying or constructing their new home.

From that initial idea, came the mobile storage service now known as The Trailer Guy. Today, we have a variety of options to help accommodate your storage needs. We offer mini storage, mobile storage, which can be delivered to your property. Whether it is one day, a week or a year, we are here to help you with affordable, honest and reliable storage.

Growing up in the Fox Valley area, I have come to appreciate many of the local organizations that help sustain our community. Because of this, The Trailer Guy is committed to supporting local groups such as Kendall County Community Food Pantry, area Chambers of Commerce, Moose and Fox Valley Older Adults through fundraisers and donated trailer services.

My wife Karen, daughter Jelaina and I thank you for considering The Trailer Guy for your storage needs.
