Where can I find an affordable used shaved ice trailer??

Postby kmmconcepts » Tue Mar 20, 2018 3:23 am

Hello Everyone,
I am new to this and I have met with my food and health inspector and I have the location. I know which shaved ice equipment I will be using. I JUST NEED a trailer. I want it to be no longer than 14 feet long. I am not wanting to spend more than $17,000 that includes shipping if that is necessary. I live in Wyoming. I have searched high and low and I am starting to panic b/c I want to be ready by June 1st. I have looked on UsedVending.com and craigslist, and ebay.... Please give me any and all advice you have. Thank you so much!! Much appreciated!! :) kmmconcepts (Wy(home)Ing Ice...

I would use searchtempest.com It allows you to search all of craigslist ads within a certain amount of miles around your zipcode.

Check everyday, check more than once a day. The good deals will go fast. It took me four months to find the right trailer for me. I had to drive 950 miles to pick it up, but it was a good deal and it was what we wanted in a trailer.

I would say $17,000 is more than enough to find a very nice trailer. Remember though if the deal is to good to be true it probably is. A lot of scammers on craigslist. Only pay and pick up in person. If you don't use common sense you will lose your money and have nothing to show for it.

searchtempest is a great resource and is where we found our used trailer. We were able to get a 6'x12' ft trailer in north Carolina loaded with sinks, AC, etc.. for under 4k. Our seller was really motivated to sell, but good deal are out there. We were looking at brand new for awhile and http://haulmark.com/trailers/specialty-trailers/mobile-kitchen-trailers/all-events-trailer has some really reasonable prices. Good Luck!

Also just to chime in with what Ruff84 mentioned. There are a ridiculous amount of scam trailers on Craigslist right now. many brand new looking trailers for under 2k. they are pretty easy to spot, just be vigilant.

$17,000 should be plenty to get what you want. The problem is there isn't likely to be much for sale near you in Wyoming, so you should broaden your search area and plan on making a drive.

Try http://www.searchcraigslist.org/ to search all areas of craigslist.

Great tip Loopdan, I've used this website to search for specialty items as well!
