Our History

historyChariot Manufacturing Company started as a partnership between Mr. Bob Hott and a college friend in 1975. Bob later bought out his partner and incorporated. The company was founded as a result of the desire to tow their motorcycles to the Smokey Mountains in the summer time. After researching the options, they discovered that there were no trailers on the market that would accommodate this need, so Chariot was born.

The company spent over $700,000 in 1995 to upgrade and expand its production tools and facilities. Bob served as president and general manager, guiding the company until October of 2003 when he sold the company to American Commerce Solutions.Like Bob, American Commerce Solutions has the commitment to provide the best products for a fair price and to meet or exceed its Customers expectations. By keeping the focus on long term growth, Chariot will provide a return on investment for its Customers and its Shareholders.The company will stay in touch with its market through participation in motorcycling events throughout the country.
Chariot is now headquartered in Tampa Florida, and continues to produce high quality, state-of-the-art open and enclosed trailers to carry motorcycles and other industries. The flexibility of the design allows us to adapt to other application-specific needs such as concession or specialized work trailers. The Company’s goals have included controlled, steady growth, a commitment to quality, and a customer first   focus. This has been a winning combination and will continue to be the Company directive.Contact us toll free at 1-866-571-HAUL (1-866-571-4285)
