Alto, TX is known throughout East Texas for two things: high school football and Pearman Motor Company. Established in 1937, Pearman Trailer Sales has built a reputation for honesty and integrity in the automobile industry.

Now three generations removed from the founding Pearman, the company continues to uphold the same principles upon which it was built. Brothers Bob & J.D. strive to offer quality service at a great price, all while maintaining a foundation built upon honesty.

Pearman Motor Company

In 2009, the automobile industry faced some major obstacles, a reality that did not leave Pearman Motor Company unscathed. That year, the dealership decided to expand its operation to include trailer sales in order to better serve those around them. Today, Pearman Trailer Sales is an authorized dealer for brands such as Gooseneck, Kearney, and CM Trailers.
