The Eagle Leasing Story

Born in the ’60s and Still Going Strong.

el-vintage-1-640x480 The Eagle Leasing Story

Eagle Leasing is the Northeast’s largest trailer and container leasing company.

Back in the 1960s, Irving Eagle and his three sons, Louis, Alvin, and Morty, worked for Strick Trailers, the country’s largest trailer manufacturer at the time. They sold new trailers to trucking companies throughout the Northeast. Instead of taking a sales commission, the Eagles were often offered the older trade-in trailers to keep for themselves, as Strick didn’t want them back. The men saw potential in leasing these trade-ins and eventually formed their own small fleet of trailers which they rented out to companies for storage. Their business took off, and in 1967 they left Strick and formed The Eagle Leasing Co. in Orange, CT.

In the late 1970s, the family knew that in order to grow the company they needed to expand into Massachusetts, where the high-tech boom was just starting. They studied maps to determine how to best serve the state in the most effective way. They chose Southborough as the ideal location, and in 1987 opened their first office there. After 20 years of growth, the company added a state-of-the-art facility in Oxford, MA in 2006.

Eagle Leasing is now the Northeast’s largest trailer, office, and container leasing company, with a customer base ranging from residential to industrial, more than 20,000 units in its fleet and over 100 acres of land across our 4 locations.  While Eagle Leasing started in the storage and road trailer business, we expanded our business to include flatbeds, storage containers, office trailers, and office containers.

The company has grown to employ over 130 people at our locations, including Orange, CT, Southborough, MA, Oxford, MA and Northborough, MA.

  • Wow.. what can I say! These guys were professional and had great customer skills - something you rarely see these days. When I was shopping for a container, I looked at all the "other competitors", but could not find anyone that could match the price to service as Eagle Leasing. Happy I made the choice.
