This motivated father took a tough situation and used it as an opportunity to follow a dream. Now he's showing his son what it looks like to take responsibility, work hard, and build something great!
Let's get on to Frank and Leo's story!
WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Hello, my name is Frank Rocha and this is my son Leo J Rocha. We are from North Richland Hills, TX.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
I own and run Rocha Rental and we rent out trailers to help people transport their stuff like cars, trucks, tractors, toys, or whatever they need to tow much easier. You can find us on linktree.com/Rocharental
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
All of this started as a dream. Scrolling through TikTok I saw this guy showing how he makes money by renting out his trailers. I was thinking about doing the same but was scared. Then one day I got laid off from work. I got home thinking about what to do next. I was unable to find another job that could work with my schedule; I needed to pick up my son from school. I decided to start my own business. I was tired of doing my best for companies that didn’t appreciate my hard work so, I made up my mind and chose to work on my own and do my best for my son. I started looking for a good trailer - something that will look nice and catch people's attention. After days of research, I found the one - a MAXX-D H5X. I saw it online and showed it to my son and we both said, "Yes, this is the one!"
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WHAT YOU DO?
To be honest my favorite part of what I do is helping people out when they need a trailer. I’m available 24/7 because you never know when someone needs a trailer, even last minute, or when someone broke down in the middle of the night. As I help people they help me have more time to spend with my son. I can even take him to lunch during school.
HOW DOES YOUR MAXX-D TRAILER HELP YOU GET WORK DONE?
Not going to lie my MAXX-D trailer looks great and it catches people's attention. That alone helps me with marketing. Also, the stand-up ramps and drive-over fenders make it easy to load and unload. You can tell they did a great job building this trailer.
WHICH MAXX-D DEALER DID YOU BUY FROM?
I remember hopping in my truck with my son heading to Regal Trailer Sales down in Wills Point, Texas. It was about an hour and a half drive but we both were excited. We knew after this everything was going to change for the best. Big thanks to the guys at Regal Trailer - the experience was great! Hopefully, soon I can go back and get another trailer.
A MOTIVATED FATHER
Frank, the way you swallowed your fear about starting something new, and just got out there and did it, knowing it would benefit your family and give you more time to spend with your son is such an inspiration to us. And we love that you found your inspiration for someone else doing the same thing! We can't wait to see how you expand your fleet and business and bring your son along for the ride. You're building a legacy together and he'll have a head start in life because he saw his dad work hard.
The trailer Frank and Leo rent out is the MAXX-D H5X 5" Channel Buggy Hauler.
