History of Pine Hill

Pine Hill began as a hands on, home-based business building small trailers and doing light service work. Today, it has evolved into an innovative leader in shed moving trailer manufacturing, trailer sales and trailer parts and repair.

1998

Pine Hill Trailers was founded in 1998 by Dan Petershiem and began as home-based business. The company's first builds were a skid-steer trailer and dump trailer. Because of Dan's expertise and reputation as an excellent trouble shooter, a local shed hauler asked him to do service work on his trailers. Word quickly spread, and Dan often had three to four truck and trailer rigs parked in his driveway for service. For the next two years, Dan alternated between building small trailers and light service work at his home shop.


2000

The demand for Dan's trailers increased, because of his reputation for high-quality, solid engineering and innovative designs. In 2000, Dan decided to go into manufacturing shed moving trailers full time.


2002

After working from his home full time for a couple of years, Dan needed more space. In 2002, he moved the business to a 15,000-sq. ft. shop in Gordonville, Pa., and added five employees. It was during this time Dan realized the potential for a full service and repair department for the shed moving trailer customers and the general public. So, a dedicated service division was added.


2003

In 2003, due to the rising demand for Pine Hill shed trailers, a full-time manufacturing department was added to oversee the manufacturing process of all Pine Hill shed moving trailers. Dan's ability to problem-solve, and fine tune each trailer to meet the customer's specific needs quickly made Pine Hill an indispensable source in the shed hauling community.

During this time Dan was also instrumental in evolving Belmont Machine, a local trailer manufacturer start up. His extensive trailer building knowledge and attention to the needs of the customer is still evident in the quality and durability of the Belmont trailers today. That's why we've included Belmont trailers for sale as a part of our trailer inventory.

2007

As business continued to grow and more trailers were added, a dedicated sales division was added in 2007. Their primary goal was to specialize in open and enclosed trailers.

2012

Pine Hill outgrows its building yet again. The company bought four acres of land and constructed a 150,000 sq. ft. building. In 2012, the company moved to their current location along U.S. Route 30 in Gordonville Pa.


2014

To continue to serve the shed hauling community, Pine Hill opened a shed moving trailers repair and service department in 2014. This department is dedicated to having service techs available and solely devoted to servicing shed moving trailers.


Today

Pine Hill now employs 34 employees and houses five divisions: Shed Trailer Manufacturing, Custom Builds and Fabrication, New and Used Trailer Sales, Service, and Parts. The company is now the gold standard for shed moving trailers and has shed trailers all across America and in three countries.
