"We were building platforms and stairways here and it was an all-day process. So we thought, 'What can we do to make it easier?'" recalled Sgt. Keith Melrose with the Alexandria Police Department. "My boss and I actually sat in my office one day and we brainstormed and we came up with this in our head," Sgt. Melrose said. They went to Pro-Tainer, Inc. in Alexandria to make it possible. The "Plungester" will be used at mobile Polar Plunge events all across the state.
Anyone out there looking to buy a roll off trailer, don’t go any further, buy quality and OEM. Don’t waste your money and buy cheap made products like Texas pride roll off trailers. For one, you have to buy custom boxes that cost double the price. Second it’s not a roll off, the rollers don’t roll when the bin is being pulled up. It’s metal on metal contact all the way up. I wish I found Pro-Tainer Inc while I was shopping for a roll off trailer. I could say i would have never bought a Texas pride roll off system...
The compactor is absolutely wonderful! It is easy, efficient and has shortened our cardboard route by at least two thirds!
Thanks for manufacturing such a great machine.
Recycle Logic has had a Pro-Tainer trailer and 10 roll off containers in service since 2006. Our rig works 5-6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. For the first 3 years we hauled asphalt roofing shingles in the containers. We are no longer in that market, but we do haul construction debris including drywall scrap on a daily basis. Although the trailer and containers have gone thru repairs, which can be expected for the wear and tear, after 7 years it is still one of our most productive working assets.
It pulls really nicely and smoothly going down the road. And I am on the interstate almost every day, 65 mph. It’s really easy to back up, and I back down some pretty long roads. Love the little LED lights, especially the ones on the sides of the back of the trailer.
I like using the trailer because I get to deliver my roll off containers and recycling bins to new customers at the same time I pick up my current customers. This helps to save a lot of time and money it would normally take to go out with a separate truck making my deliveries.
I would like to thank you for the excellent product your company produces. Recently, the City of Modesto purchased two recycling trailers and we are extremely happy with the finished product. I did an extensive internet search and it was clear that Pro-Tainer was a leader in the industry and someone I wanted to do business with.
In addition to your exceptional product, the process from start to finish was an easy one and very much appreciated.
These recycling trailers will be a show piece for Modesto for a very long time and will help us continue to work towards zero waste in our community.
