Petersen Trailers - the trusted name for service.


"We started with a two horse bumper pull and over the years worked our way up to a four horse trailer with living quarters. We use our trailer throughout the year to haul our horses to various competitions in both Canada and the US. Whether we are hauling across the Mojave Desert, travelling to Tulsa, Oklahoma or short hauling to a local horse show, we have confidence that our trailer is 'good to go'. Our trailers have always been serviced by Petersen Trailers. We wouldn't consider taking them anywhere else. We trust and rely on Clint to give us good advice and quality workmanship. We really couldn't do the travelling we do without him."

Kimberly and Ashley Toye - customers since 1996

"I bought my first horse trailer 10 years ago and barely had it off the sales lot before friends started talking about the ‘best trailer guy in the Lower Mainland.’ Naturally, when my trailer’s first maintenance service was due, I phoned up that best trailer guy, Clint Petersen, and booked an appointment. His set-up out in South Langley is a fully equipped shop capable of bringing the largest of horse trailers inside for work.


Although my trailer generally only needs the wheels and brakes serviced, Clint and his right hand man, Dave, go through it from front to back to ensure that my little rig is as safe as it can be to haul my precious cargo. They’ve successfully chased down electrical gremlins and made helpful recommendations along the way.


What I particularly appreciate is how extraordinarily knowledgeable  and patient Clint always is. In the beginning I had lots of questions and Clint didn’t just have answers; he offered options. When I was ready to upgrade my electronic brake controller, he went through all the features and benefits of the Tekonsha, and sold me on the spot. I’ve been thrilled with its performance ever since.


Over the years, their work has always met or exceeded my expectations. My trailer is always ready when promised and it’s a rare occasion that I haven’t later discovered some little extra safety thing that Clint has noticed and fixed. I recommend Petersen Trailers to all my friends and Clint has me as a lifetime customer."
