Company History

In 1998 Dick Auten had a vision to make moving easier. He wanted the relocation process to be painless for families, especially for those who were expecting a delay in buying or constructing their new home.

From that initial idea came the mobile storage service now known as The Trailer Guy. Today, the business offers a variety of options to help accommodate your storage needs. We can provide secure storage units in a range of sizes, and mobile storage that can be delivered to your property.


Whether for one day, a week, or a year, we are here to help you with affordable, honest, and reliable storage.

Paul Auten

Owner, Operator

"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 including Kendall County Community Food Pantry, area Chambers of Commerce, Moose, Senior Services Associates, and Fox Valley Older Adults, through fundraisers and donation of trailer services."
