Cost of Doing Up a Catering Trailer
I am currently in the process of looking for a trailer to start my mobile catering business. I am having a bit of trouble however, finding one that fits my businesses requirements.
I have a small budget of £3000 and for that I need a trailer that is between 8-12 ' in length and 5' ish in width, has a gas deep fat fryer, gas griddle, tea urn, gas fridge and a gas hob.
I know this is asking a lot and finding something that has all those things fitted is proving impossible, at least for the price. Most trailers just come equipped with the griddle, maybe a fryer and a Bain Marie.
I'm wondering if I am better off just buying an empty shell, ideally with worktops and flooring and walls all sorted) and adding the catering equipment myself. Problem is, I know nothing about this kind of thing, how much it costs or how to fit it, so I would need to pay someone to do it.
Assuming I got the trailer for £1000, do you think it would be possible to buy and fit all that equipment with the remaining £2000? Or am I better off just looking and praying for one that already has it.
Sorry I know that's not the easiest question, I just have no idea where to go to find out this kind of thing.
