After 30 years of service to the Rochester area Gary Bartsch owner of Chain Drive Bobcat has decided to retire and sell his Bobcat dealership to the owners of Valley Trailer Sales LLC.
The new business will be called Bobcat of Rochester, we will be operating out of the Chain Drive location until we can secure a new location to relocate all of our businesses in one place. We will still be using the Chain Drive’s phone number 507-285-0753 .
Valley Trailer Sales is the local Featherlite Trailer dealer, we also have a large selection of used skid loaders, construction and farm equipment. The acquisition of the Bobcat dealer ship will fit nicely into our current lines being offered. We plan on offering the full line of Bobcat products for sale and for rent, as well as a full service center and a well stocked parts department.
We are excited about this new opportunity and look forward to meeting all of you and building a solid relationship for years to come. We took over owner ship May 14th and are expecting a smooth transition from Chain Drive to Bobcat of Rochester, but as can happen there may be a few bumps in the road we hope you will be understanding and help us work thru any issues that my come up.
One of the things that will help with a smooth transition is the new parts credit program that Bobcat has started. This is called Bobcat Preferred Commercial Account and works like a credit card, any time you need part, service or rental equipment and you would rather charge it than pay cash you just use your Bobcat card. Please call or stop into the dealer ship to find out more about this program or fill out a credit application to get enrolled in this program.
