Utility Dealership Announces a Test Drive & Loan Program for New & Existing Customers

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., February 22, 2012 – Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner® curtainsided trailers is pleased to announce that Utility’s independent dealership, Allstate Peterbilt Group has recently launched a loan and test drive program for all new and existing customers.

Headquartered in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, the Allstate Peterbilt Group is offering new and existing customers an opportunity to test drive a Utility 4000D-X Composite™ dry van. Based on availability, Allstate will also loan a trailer for temporary use while their existing trailer is in service. “We wanted to give new customers an opportunity to experience a Utility 4000D-X Composite™ as well as extend our commitment to servicing our existing customers with a temporary loan,” said Ty Kline, Corporate Trailer Sales Manager for Allstate Utility Trailer Sales.

Prior to the test drive and loan program, the two Utility 4000D-X Composite™ dry vans were used to haul over 100,000 boxed toys for the Twin Cities’ Toys for Tots Program. “Allstate’s logistics support for the Toys for Tots campaign proved to be a huge success, and we are planning on supporting again this year,” said Kline.
