Sell a used mobile catering trailer by displaying it on online shopping websites such as eBay, J.J. Kane, NCASS or USEDVending.com. You can also enroll your trailer for a public auction within your locality. Selling it to a pawn shop or other institution dealing with secondhand automotive are also options. If the trailer is still in use, putting a For Sale poster on it informs all passers-by and potential customers that you wish to sell it.
The price you should put on your trailer depends on the type of catering trailer it is. On eBay, most catering trailers with built-in kitchens cost between $35,000 and $60,000, as of August 2015. Others go for as low as $8,500 to $10,000, depending on their size.
J.J. Kane offers both online selling services and auction services. These auctions are done from place to place across the country. J.J. Kane charges a minimal fee depending on the product's value or volume of consignment items.
As of August 2015, most catering trailers on NCASS are priced between $25,000 and $35,000. Catering wagons without the towing part of the trailer are priced between $2,000 and $10,000.
USEDVending.com prices most of its catering trailers between $12,000 and $35,000.
