Buying And Selling Horse Trailers Online

Apr 20, 2008
Although with the addition of the internet, the market place has changed, the equipment pertaining to horses in general has not! You still need a trailer to get your animals where they need to go, and depending on whether you are replacing a trailer or getting rid of one you no longer need, you will find that you might need to buy or sell one as well. A horse trailer is a large piece of equipment, and even if at one point you were able to take out an ad in the local paper and get it sold, this is no longer necessarily the case. You will find that with a little bit of work, you can get your trailer issue taken care of easily.

When you are looking to sell a horse trailer online, there are many sites that will allow you to do so. There are some horse trailer sites that are specifically designed for the sale of horse or farm equipment, and some of them are even locally oriented so you don't have to worry about transport. The first thing you need to do, whenever you sell anything online, is to get a few good pictures of it. Make sure that it is clean and looking its best, and post pictures of it along with the ad. Ads with pictures get significantly more responses and it is important to maximize the amount of attention you get.

Make sure that all the specifications of your trailer are on the ad, including dimensions, brand, age and general wear. While some people might be interested enough to buy, they won't necessarily want to email you for more information when other people have in their information readily available, so don't let that customer slip through your fingers!

When you are looking to buy, you can go to specialty websites, which give you the benefit of getting them locally, or you can try larger sites like eBay. One of the interesting aspects of purchasing on classified sites is that you will often run into sellers who have inherited their equipment and don't have a good idea of what it is worth. You can pick up some real gems this way if you are willing to be patient and look thoroughly.

CAUTION: Many of the sites on the internet don't have fraud systems in place and if you are interested in a certian trailer make sure you can go see it. Or have a friend go see it! Don't by any means pay a deposit to hold a trailer you may never see it again, unless the source is a trusted seller with really good feebback or rating on that site.

When you are buying a horse trailer, remember that transport is something that you have to think of. Even if you are buying the trailer for a great price, you might be making it up in shipping fees, so make sure you think about how much you are looking to spend on shipping. If the place is close enough, you can always drive it home yourself, but if it's across the country, you will definitely want to look a bit closer to your base of operations.

Buying and selling horse trailers online is quite easy once you've got the hang of it, but remember that as with any purchase, once again you should go to look at the trailer, if possible, and that when you are selling to make sure that you have a good idea of who will be paying you!

And that the trailer is really there! If someone gives you a heartbleed story I am sorry 9 out of 10 times it is going to be a fraud and you are throwing your money away. Most trailers get turned in about 4-6 years so many deals can be had. Just keep your money ready and when you have checked it our fully ... buy it right!

There are so many sites that you can choose from. We have included some of our favorites that have produced for us over and over.

I also like there new URS, or User Rank System that helps protect against fraudulent ads.
