Becker Autos & Trailers – Quality Used Vehicles and New Trailers at Affordable Prices!
Becker Autos & Trailers was started over 25 years ago in Downs, Kansas as Becker Autos by owners Alvin and Debra Becker. It is located on the west side of Downs, Kasas off of Hwy 24. For several years the business remained family operated as primarily a used vehicle lot, dabbling into campers motorcycles, trailers and more.
In 2008 a new location was added to Becker Autos in Beloit, Kansas, just off Hwy 24 on the west side of Beloit. Daughter Lydia (Becker) Housh moved home from Topeka, after graduating college and spending a couple years in the workforce, to help with the family business. Lydia managed the Beloit Becker Autos specializing in the sales of used vehicles and still does today. Noticing that Lydia had her hands full in 2010 Becker Autos brought on another full time salesman and a helping hand in vehicle service experience, Blake Housh. Blake and Lydia worked together in growing the Beloit location and in the beginning of 2011 helped to form Becker Autos & Trailers. Blake and Lydia were soon married and became partners in business with the Beloit lot addition of trailers with Alvin and Debra Becker.
The trailers added a new product line which includes trailers of all types including stock trailers, enclosed trailers, heavy duty trailers, dump trailers, grain trailers, car trailers and utility trailers. They carry over 10 major brands including Aluma, FinishLine, Midsota, Big Tex, Carry-On, Titan, Hillsboro, Sundowner, Sharp and Bourbon. They have entry level trailers to the top of the line in aluminum and steel. Carrying brands such as Titan, Hillsboro and Sharp that are Kansas made as well as their newest addition Bourbon trailers, which are grain trailers made in the neighboring town of Jewell, not only allows Becker Autos & Trailers to carry what they have hand-picked to be the best trailer brands made but also the best local trailers constructed.
With the take off of the trailer lines and the opportunity for growth a new journey has been pursued by Becker Autos & Trailers. A Salina trailer lot was added in January of 2013 in which Doug DeVore, a Beloit native and long-time friend of Blake Housh, joined the team as sales manager. In January of 2014 a decision was made to pull Doug from the Salina lot back to his roots to play a key role in developing North Central Kansas prime trailer supercenter. The supercenter will be an addition to our current Beloit lot and host a trailer service center as well as over 100 trailers.
Becker Autos & Trailers appreciates the communities’ support which has aided in their ability to be successful in business and with the expansions. Without the help of the local area and return customers Becker Autos & Trailers wouldn’t exist today.
