The East Coast Difference

BUILDING146-1024x417

A History of Dedication You Can Count On

We’re a family owned and operated business that believes in delivering the best value to our customers and employees. After working for many years in the towing industry, the Rudiger Family opened East Coast Auto Transport, Inc.

Our company entered the auto-transport venture in 1995 hauling cars all over the East Coast of the United States. We quickly realized the demand for direct sales of auto-transport vehicles and pioneered the way as a full service dealership and auto-transport company in 1997. Upon re-branding to East Coast Truck and Trailer Sales we’ve gained a floodgate of positive consumer responses.

We had a vision of what it would be like to properly handle the needs of all tow operators and truck drivers. This vision is what inspires us to excel everyday. 

As a family owned and operated company, we encouraged you to follow our journey.

We come from a family of tow operators who understand what it’s like to be in your shoes. In fact, we’ve probably got a few similar tales in talking. During our initial launch there were few, if any, full service trucking dealerships.

Consistency is a key ingredient to our success and the foundation of our business model. We marched into this industry delivering great products at a consistently lower price. Every day our products are already discounted especially for you.

Our 365 Best Price Guarantee places stock into this claim by comparing our pricing with top competitors for you to see. It’s just another way East Coast prides itself on being the difference that counts in excellent service.

Everyday is customer appreciation day because we consider you family! It became apparent that our customers come from all different walks of the auto transport and towing industry, but they all viewed their rig as a mobile business.

So, for that reason, we have business partners that we provide with smart investments and solutions everyday. They depend on us to provide them with supplies and equipment to keep that business moving and operating efficiently.

When you become an East Coast partner, you’ll quickly notice our hands on solutions and knowledgeable managers.

Our local Portsmouth facility includes a driver’s lounge, shower and laundry room that was designed putting our partners needs first.
