Where is the best place to sell my trailer?

April 14, 2022|

There are several places where you can sell your trailer, depending on what type of trailer it is and what you are hoping to get. If you have a camper or RV trailer, you might try listing it on a site like eBay or Facebook Marketplace. Still, if you have a semi-trailer, your best bet may be to find a specialist with the necessary experience to value your trailer. Trailers vary considerably in price Depending on its size, make and condition, your trailer may be worth a considerable sum, but sending it to an auction house or listing it on a marketplace website is unlikely to get you the 'best bang for your buck'.

What’s the best way to sell a trailer?

February 17, 2022|

Trailers are an essential part of the transportation system of goods, whether that be building materials, food, fuel, livestock, vehicles or machinery. Selling a trailer has long been very difficult, especially in the UK. Those major marketplace websites can be great if the right individual spots your vehicle instantly and has been waiting for an asset just like yours, however, it's generally a long, slow and painful process! From expensive advertising costs to extra fees and tyre kickers, selling your semi-trailer for the right price can take months at the best of times. You're also competing with many other similar vehicles, potentially feeling the need to pay for 'premium listings' just to make your vehicle stand out from the crowd. At Trailer Trading, our business was born out of a passion to ease the burden of selling your vehicle, ensuring every individual or haulage company can be given a fast, accurate, and fair quotation.

Why are they called ‘semi-trailers’?

April 22, 2021|

A semi-trailer doesn't have a front axle while a large portion of its weight is handled by a tractor unit. They are called 'semi-trailers' because (unlike full trailers) there are no front wheels and they can only be moved when attached to the tractor unit. Therefore, semi-trailers usually have legs to support them when they are not in use. The name semi-trailer was adapted over time and is now what most people in the UK call them. When it comes to navigating, a semi-trailer has a much smaller turning circle than a full trailer, which makes it more manageable on European roads.

Before you scrap it and lose value, consider how to sell your used semi-trailer instead.
