Early 70s

Dallas whips Miami in the Super Bowl. Richard Nixon’s administration struggles with a war in Vietnam and the beginning of Watergate, a scandal that would last for years to come. Looking Glass hits #1 on the American Billboard singing “Brandy, you’re a fine girl…”

$700 Startup

Larry Michael makes the trek from Chicago, Illinois to Tupelo, Mississippi and begins Transport Trailer Service with a mere $700 and a handful of tools. Four decades later, with an abundance of experience and a long line of satisfied customers, Transport Trailer Service leads the Southeast as a full-service trailer dealer along with sister companies, Precision Machine & Metal Fabrication, Celebrity FastWrapz, Rent-A-Box, Quick Stitch and others.

Our Specialty

Specializing in selling new and used semi-trailers, Transport Trailer also provides top-notch repair service, rents and leases storage and road trailers. Our Tupelo showroom includes a vast assortment of quality domestic replacement parts and truck and trailer accessories. We continually lead the marketplace in parts sales volume because our customers have come to know where to find even the most obscure part.


Most every company agrees: its most important asset is its people. Staying involved in the community remains a priority of the organization’s leadership with representation in the Northeast Mississippi Traffic Club, Industrial Club and Community Development Foundation (among numerous others). We maintain experienced people. With over 50 years of combined experience, there aren’t too many problems we haven’t seen – and solved. Challenge us. No job is too large, no job is too small.

Feel free to contact us at anytime.

We are happy to discuss your projects and answer any questions you may have.
