Metal Building in Republic, Missouri

Metal Building Outlet supplied a custom metal building in Republic, Missouri to Sancrest Trailer Sales. With their sales sites expanding into three separate locations throughout Missouri they required a new shop building. This custom building kit included two metal structures that once constructed formed one larger building, the main gable framed building and a sidewall lean-to that connected seamlessly. We are happy with the final outcome of this custom blueprint!

History of Sancrest Trailer Sales

Sancrest was founded in the 1940’s by Glenn Rauch, Phil’s grandfather, making it a third generation enterprise. The Sancrest Farms of then has expanded into more than farming today. Phil continues to incorporate the same family values of honesty, hard work and integrity into Sancrest Specialized Transport that his parents, Mike and Bobbi, instilled in him while growing up.

What started as a part time job for his uncle in 2003 quickly grew into Sancrest Specialized Transport in 2004. From dairy farming to the auto transport business was a big career move. Phil was knowledgeable about the trucking industry for he had been moving show and sale cattle for his family and others. Starting with a dually and a 3 car hauler, Sancrest rapidly grew to a new Peterbilt with a 7 car trailer. Upgrading and adding equipment, Phil teamed up with Sun Country in 2007 and together they designed new trailers that would allow them to haul a larger variety of vehicles. With special decks and approaches, almost any vehicle can be accommodated filling the gap between auto carriers and step decks.

Expanding on the dealer side Sancrest picks up the LOADTRAIL brand to go along with Sun Country Trailers which they have been representing since 2012.  Sancrest is also in the process of opening a full parts and service department.  Seeing a need for more quality service work in the 4 state area that specializes in trailers.

Today their trucking side has grown to 20 late model trucks running all 48 states providing quality transport needs for all types of vehicles.
