Flatbed trailers can be sold online through trucking and equipment listing sites such as Truck Paper or Commercial Truck Trader, as well as through online auction sites such as eBay. Local classified sites such as Craigslist can also be used to sell flatbed trailers in a specific city.
To create a listing for a flatbed truck on eBay, one must first sign up for a free eBay seller account. This allows him to create a virtual storefront through the eBay system and link any other online stores he already operates. Sellers must provide eBay with information about where the payment can be sent in order to verify the account, with PayPal being the primary method of funds delivery. The account dashboard contains a link to create a new posting, from which sellers can add images and descriptions of the trailer intended for sale. The site allows users to set both a starting auction price, with accompanying sale duration, as well as a "Buy It Now" price that allows buyers to immediately purchase the item before the auction closes.
