Auction sites such as Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers and eBay, along with classifieds sites such as Equipment Trader and Commercial Truck Trader, allow owners to sell used dump trailers by creating listings on their websites. Each site offers different tools to help the owner market the trailer and interact with buyers.
The first step to selling a used dump trailer is to choose the site that best fits the owner's needs and schedule. If the buyer wants to be closely involved in the sale process or handle the entire procedure herself, she should choose a classifieds site. Alternately, if the owner wants a third party to handle creating the listing, promoting the listing and offer other features such as shipping the trailer, she should choose an auction site. It is important to note that some auction sites, such as eBay, place much of the sale process in the hands of the seller rather than working on her behalf.
If the seller decides to handle the sale on her own, she needs to take multiple clear pictures of the trailer to include in the listing. Providing clear information about the trailer helps buyers understand its true condition and value and makes them more likely to purchase.
