Just because you have a 'sign written' vehicle we won't assume you are a trade seller. These vehicles are welcome.
Rusper car boot sales policy on Market/Trade Sellers reflects our desire to provide a tradtional style car boot sale where second-hand goods are bought and sold. We feel that too many car boot sales have 'crossed-over' to becoming market type events.
We do understand that a limited amount of interesting and convenient trade stalls adds an extra dimension to our sales and gives our customers a wider variety of choice and shopping experience.
In order to maintain a genuine car boot sale experience we do monitor and limit the number and type of trade stalls that attend our sales. To deter an increase in market/trade sellers we have set up different tariffs for these vendors.
Who do we consider to be traders?
If you are selling bulk new goods, shop type stock (new or old), trades or services then we will almost certainly consider you to be a trade/market seller. In a nutshell, if we believe your stall is more suited to a market than a Car Boot Sale, you'll be classed as a Trade Seller.
As our sellers set up their stalls before a pitch fee is taken, it is easy for our experienced marshals to determine wether your goods are deemed to be TRADE and wether you are more suited to a market than a car boot sale.
In summary, it's not the person, nor the vehicle but the goods on sale at that time, that will determine if we charge for a
As we are limiting the number of such pitches we highly recommend that any Trader/Market type vendors email us in advance to avoid disappointment.
What happens if you deem me to be a trade seller?
As long as your goods are legitimate and do not fall within our 'banned items' list and you are not selling Food/Beverages then you will be allowed to remain at that sale.
You will however be charged a NON-BOOTSALE TRADE TARIFF for your pitch.
TRADE STALL FEES are DOUBLE normal selling fees.
Standard Car Pitch £12.00 - TRADE PITCH £24 these pitches are the length of a standard car, e.g, Ford Mondeo
Standard Small Van Pitch £15.00 - TRADE PITCH £30.00 these pitches are 1.25 time the standard pitch, e.g, Peugeot Partner
Standard Medium Van Pitch £18.00 - TRADE PITCH £36.00 these pitches are 1.5 x a standard car pitch, e.g, SWB-MWB Transit
Standard LARGE Van Pitch £24 - TRADE PITCH £48.00 these pitches are 2 x a standard car pitch, e.g, LWB Sprinter / Luton
*** Larger Market/Trade pitches must contact us in advance for permission to sell. ***
What if you disagree with our decision?
Our staff will examine your goods and discuss your circumstances before coming to a decision but please be aware that thier decision is the final say on the matter.
Please remember that choosing to bring Market/Trade Goods to our sales will result in Trade Pitch Fees being applied.
What if I just have new unused personal items I want to sell?
We are not looking to penalize genuine car boot sellers, you have nothing to worry about.
Our marshals understand the difference between Boot Sale and Trade Stalls.
Our concern is with the moderation of blatant trade stalls such as those more suited to a market.
We have an excellent understanding of the type and balance of goods we would expect to see on genuine stall holders pitches.
