(A light trailer is one that could be towed behind a passenger car or SUV e.g. a box trailer or caravan, and doesn't require a heavy vehicle drivers licence to tow. A heavy trailer is one that could not be towed behind a passenger car or SUV e.g. a semi-trailer, and would require an endorsed licence to tow.)

Most details you need to complete are pre-loaded as drop boxes or check boxes, so you simply point and click, then move on.

Details marked with an * are mandatory, all others you can choose to complete, or not

Who can list on Used Trailers

If you have trailers to sell, you can list them on Used Trailers.

Private sales, manufacturers, dealers, auctioneers, importers and more...


Can I add URL's and/or links to my website or social media

Of course.

Most websites won't allow this, for fear you will divert traffic away from their site.

We're different.

Our goal is to help your business

To make your job easy, and make you look good.

So, you can upload links to your website URL, to Facebook, Twitter, or even a YouTube or Vimeo video.


What does it cost

Every seller can list Five Free Ads at any one time.

That's usually enough for most people.

That's everyone, whether you are a private seller, manufacturer, dealer, auction house or importer.

If your business is larger, and you require more ad space, we have competitive subscrition rates for up to 20 ads listed at any one time.

If you have a significant business and need even more ad space, we can provide ultra competitve space for hundreds of ads at a time.


What does it cost to run my ad as a Feature Ad


Feature Ads are where your ad is displayed and promoted on our home page.

Some websites carefully actively promote these added benefits, but often they are just an up-sell, and sometimes with exorbitant costs bordering on a scam.    

These are entirely free on Used Trailers.

All ads that include a photo are automatically listed as a Feature Ads, free of charge.

This means your ad, if it includes a photo, will automatically get random placement on our home page, and therefore higher exposure.

The more ads you list, the higher exposure you will get on our home page.



Are there any on-costs


There are absolutely no commissions, fees or charges for your Five Free Adds.

They are free. No cost. No charges. Gratis.

For larger users who use our low-cost subscription rates, the agreed subscription rate is it.

There are no further charges.

Just so we are crystal clear (because we get asked this routinely) we do not charge any commission on your trailer when it is sold.


How soon will my ad appear once I have uploaded it

Normally within one business day.

Sometimes way quicker.

As soon as our editorial team have reviewed and approved it, it's live!


How long will my ad stay listed

Until you take it down, or twelve months.

Don't forget, you have Five Free Ads at any one time: use them


How will buyers contact me

Buyers will contact you direct via any of the contact details you have listed on your ad.

This could be by phone, email, FaceBook or Twitter depending on which you have listed.


How will I know if anyone has seen my ad

Just click into your ad and it will tell you how many views there have been.


How many images can I upload

You can upload up to 15 images for each ad


What type of images can I upload

Images can be GIF, JPG, JPEG, BMP or PNG format


How large can my images be

Images can be up to 4500 Kilobytes (4.5 Megabyte) each.

If your images are too large (quite common) most computer systems have in-built capability to compress them.

When all else fails, consult Dr. Google for advice, or email us here at and we will assist.


How many images should I upload per ad

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, so always, always have at least one good image with your ad.

It's always best when selling, to think like a buyer.

The better the information you provide, the more comfortable a potential buyer will be.

And, more likely to contact you for more information, and ultimately more likely to purchase your trailer.

It's a good idea to have at least four images, to clearly show all aspects of your trailer: front, back and both sides.; kind of like reviewing a good haircut: you look at it from all angles to check it out before giving the thumbs-up.

Now, back to trailers; it's even better to include some images of key features, benefits, options or extras included.

Ideally, have around 6-8 images to show off all of the good things about your trailer, and leave no doubt in a potential buyers mind.


OK, then what are Used Trailers subscription costs

If your business is growing and you need more than your Five Free Ads, we provide up to 20 listings at any one time for $47 per month plus GST: that's as little as $2.35 + GST per listing per month.

If you are a significant business and are really selling lots of trailers, we provide up to 500 ads for $97 per month plus GST: that's less than $0.20 + GST per month.
