Crown Trailer, Est. 1952
“Where The Customer Is King”
Crown Trailer was founded in 1952 by returning WWII Marine Veteran John Giacomini Sr. He saw that there was a shortage in service and rentals companies and opened a small shop in the Chicago Stock Yards. He then moved the company to 23rd and Halsted for the next 21 years. In 1989, our shop burnt down to the ground and most thought we would never recover. We recovered and eventually expanded to our current location near Midway Airport in 1990.
John Sr. passed in 2000 and left the company to his 3 children. In 2013 John Jr. bought out his 2 siblings. Since then, the company has continued its previous growth pattern. John Giacomini Jr. is now the President and additional family members lead the management team. Through the leadership of the Giacomini Family, Crown Trailer has expanded its rental fleet, sales capabilities and services. We are proud to serve some of the largest fleets in Chicago and the world. We also work with a number of small local companies that we are critical daily partner to.
At Crown Trailer we don’t build our customer list, we build relationships. We don’t sell products and services, we sell solutions. John Sr. knew the customer should come first, hence “The Customer Is King” motto. To this day, we practice what we preach and do everything possible to provide a great experience to a normally painstaking process. By constantly updating our processes and procedures, we stay ahead of the technology curves within the industry. We take great pride in being more knowledgeable and capable then our competition.
Quite simply, we are the best at what we do, that’s why we have been in business longer than all of our competition.
