It could be

VISA

As,

VISA is needed to make trips.
Rearranged, visa can become AVIS, which is plural of AVI- which is a kind of self-proclaimed identifying means- which is again, needed for making trips.

Though,

VISA ( or its representation in the form of a small stamp) is small, it's issuing authority is generally big( a country).

And finally

you can have a pin on your visa card to get a cash advance and AVIS is a car rental company- Thanks to SteveV

    $\begingroup$ Maybe a more general one: ROT13(NGZ pneq), and rearrange one can be ROT13(ZNG). $\endgroup$ – athin Jan 16 at 14:53

I believe it's a:

Briefcase?

As is you need me on your trips

You need them to store your belongings on your trips.

Left alone you use me on your trips

It's always in use, keeping your stuff together.

Rearranged some use me on their trips

Not all people are organised, but some tend to organize their briefcases.

Short and thin

Quite arguably so.

I carry a pin

Briefcases tend to have a 3 digit PIN.

And as to "I may be small but my maker is big and powerful":

Briefcases are manufactured in big factories by big brands.
