Three ways to reduce the costs of buying a concession trailer

For many people, buying a concession trailer is a large commitment. Not just financially, but also in regards to time. A decent brand new trailer can cost over ten thousands dollars and running it will take up a lot of time. With this in mind, should you buy a concession trailer?

Surprisingly, the answer is a resounding "Yes". Many concession trailer owners have said, that taking the initial risk was well worth it, in the long term. By taking a plunge into the vending business, they unlocked a whole new world of financial freedom, previously unreachable. The concession trailer industry is worth billions of dollars and each month concession cart, and trailer owners can make profits over ten thousand dollars.

The main limitation of getting started in this industry is the lack of start up funds. Many people do not have thousands of dollars to invest in expensive equipment and stock. A lot of people tend go to the bank for a loan, but many do not want to be in debt, or are unable to get a big loan, due to poor credit scores.

Fortunately, there are ways to reduce these costs and 3 ways you can do this are provided below:

Tip 1: Buy used concession trailers – The majority of your start up funds is going to go into purchasing your vehicle. Without it, your business cannot start, obviously. As this will be your biggest investment, it makes sense to start here to save money and reduce the costs. One method that professional concession business owners use it to buy used concession trailers instead of brand new ones. By doing this, you can save thousands of dollars which you can use for stock.

Tip 2: Source cheap stock – A large portion of your research time should go into finding a cheap stock. Good places to try are wholesale outsets and online. If you bought your trailer from someone, it is a good idea to ask them where they sourced their stock from, as it is very likely, they will already know the best suppliers in the area.

Tip 3: Test locations and stock – The best way to save money, is not to waste it. If a particular item is not selling well, stop selling it and stock another item instead. Test different items at different locations to maximize your return on investment.
