Hitched Up and Ready to Roll in Cleveland 2016-2017

So another year is rolling by. We serviced and sold a lot of trailers, but that’s been true for 80+ years. What’s new?

In the trailer and hitch business, what’s new is technology. Automotive technology has become so familiar we find that our mechanical skills are even more rare than they were 5 years ago. As of today, trailers don’t come with indicator lights telling you your tire pressure is low or your battery’s about to die – but that may not be too far off in the future.

At this year’s NATDA show, trailer technology was on full display. While we have been in the business for more than 80 years, we don’t “just’ rely on our experience. We are constantly incorporating new techniques in our shop, keeping our technicians on their toes with training and new tools, and always working with our vendors to give our customers the best value for their money.

We know a trailer is an investment in your business – and it’s our business to keep you rolling!

Old Trailer? New Trailer? Ohio, We Can Fix That

Locally, we’re finding more of our customers want to customize their trailers to fit their needs and work even harder for them and their businesses. Whether you need to reinforce your ramp door or customize an enclosed trailer to meet your specifications, give us a call. We’ve #beenthere and #donethat as they say on Twitter.

Cleveland Predictions for 2017?

We’ll go out on a limb and say we might have predicted 2016’s Cavaliers would win the NBA Championship. We could say we knew how excited we’d be, but frankly, it was even better than we’d thought it would be. That Tribe/White Sox series was AMAZING and gave a whole new meaning to “wait til next year!”

(If there’s one thing Terry Francona knows about, it’s teamwork.)

Cleveland Browns Still Make Us Wonder

Cleveland Browns: Always something to talk about

We’re not ready to do any fortune-telling regarding the Browns…

What About Snow in Cleveland this Year?

We can absolutely, positively promise you, we’re going to get some snow! How much no one knows but all sources say it’ll be a lot more than last season. What we can promise: we’ll be here, six days a week, working on all makes and models of plows.

What was new in your business in 2016? We’re incorporating more technology to serve our customers better.

Looking for predictions for Cleveland business in 2017? We really can’t claim to be fortune tellers.

Memorial Day in Cleveland

memorial_day_Post.jpgJTI will be closed on Memorial Day, to pause and remember those who have served our country and contributed to all that it is today.

We will also take advantage of the great freedoms we enjoy here, in this country and specifically in Northeast Ohio. The Metroparks are gorgeous, Lake Erie is a truly Great Lake, and we are grateful every day for the wonderful customers, co-workers, friends and family whose company we enjoy so much.

We wish you a peaceful, relaxing weekend. And, we’ll be open bright and early on Tuesday, so if your trailer, hitch, tires, axle, brakes or anything else needs attention, you know where to find us.

USA! USA! Trailers Made in the USA! USA!

After a sunny Fourth of July celebration in Cleveland and spectacular USMNT World Cup win, our patriotism is showing.

But the weekend is over and it’s back to work. And today, it seems extra-appropriate to point out that trailers from Atlas, Carry-On, Parker Performance Trailers, Haulin, Karavan, and virtually all of the manufacturers we represent are indeed MADE IN THE USA.

Come see our fine selection here at JTI!

Whether you’re a soccer fan or just biding time until the Browns’ next game, you have to admit that USWNT win was sweet.

And when you come visit us, you’ll probably agree we have a sweet selection of trailers made in the USA. Check out our inventory online or just stop by. We look forward to seeing you!

Father’s Day Thoughts, 2015

Raise your hand if you’ve ever said to dad, hey, I was wondering if you could help me with a little project this weekend… Umhm. We thought so. And what did he say? Umhmm. We thought so. Dads are pretty dependable.

Over the course of 80 years in the trailer and hitch business, we’ve met a lot of hardworking people. Some of the busiest and hardest working, of course, are the ones named Dad.

While we’ll be closed on Sunday, we know a lot of our customers named “Dad” will be working on Sunday, like they do every day. They’ll be farming and fixing, mowing the lawn and moving pianos, picking up an extra shift to make ends meet, and teaching their kids how to ride bikes, drive cars, fix roofs, replace driveways… you name it, whether it’s a “real” job or just a day in the life of being a dad, most pops we know will be working this Sunday.

As trailer and hitch experts, we’re not necessarily qualified to give relationship advice. However, we’re absolutely qualified to say this: If you have a chance to hang out with Dad this Sunday, even if it feels a little bit like work, do it. Maybe you could even help him with one of his projects. Just a thought.

Hauling into 2015

JTI2015WordCloudThe new year is here. What did your trailer do for you in 2014?

What does 2015 hold for you?

At JTI, we have quite a few plans for the new year, and they all involve helping our customers. Because our customers rely on their trailers, and because we’ve been all about the trailer business since 1935, you may not notice a lot of changes in 2015.

And that’s OK with us.  We’ve been serving people in Cleveland who rely on their trailers for a long time. If you depend on your trailer, why not resolve to stop in or call us in 2015?  We’ll be here, ready to help.
