Writing your advert

To make your advert as effective as possible we need as much information as possible to help you sell your toilet equipment. Try to include the following information:

  • Title of advert - Try to describe your toilet trailer and include the number of loos i.e. 3+1 for 3 Ladies and 1 Gents. 
  • Description of item - This should include as much information as you can find out. For example the age and condition, dimensions etc. If you can find any information from the manufacturers website include this as the better / longer the description the more likely you are to be found. 
  • Price - The price you would like to charge.
  • VAT - VAT registered companies can either choose to include VAT within the price or add it to the advertised price.  Most private individuals should choose VAT free (i.e you don't charge VAT)
  • Location - Give us the postcode so we can include it to localise searches. Unless specified we will use your address from payment or company location.
  • Delivery notes - Your location for collection, county and town is fine and if you can deliver and at what cost, payment requirements.
  • Contact details - Provide a phone number and / or email address. (If you don't supply us with this information we will use the email address you have contacted us with and any phone number we have for you).

We also advise that you include key words in your advert, for example if you want your advert to appear when someone types in "3+1" or "Urinals" you need to include the text "3+1" and "Urinals" within the title or body of the advert.

Photographs

To get the best interest, it is advised that you include the best photos you can get of your toilet trailer. A customer will base 90% of their purchasing decision on the first photograph they see. 

Take at least one photo of the outside showing at least two sides in one photo (front and one side etc.)  If you can take the photos of your toilet trailer on a sunny day with a buitiful garden or statly home this is ideal. Try and avoid over cast days and untidy storage yards! If you unit has steps and skirt install them.  Although it is compleatley erelevent to the toilet unit, it affects the look of the unit much more than it should. 

For the inside it is best to use a very wide angle lense on your camera positions as close into the corner of the unit as possible. You can use a self timer to take the photo to avoid you beeing in the shot.  If you toilet looks dark and dingy try and shine some tight on the roof (from out of shot) 

It could be worth getting a professional to take a photos. Taking time photographing can make the diference between getting the best price for your advert or not. It is more difficult than you would think getting good photographs for the inside of your toilet unit.  

It could be worth getting a professional to take a photo of an expensive trailer. Taking time photographing can make the diference between getting the best price for your advert or not.

 

You can have one or as many photos as you feel necessary to sell your advert (within reason).  If you have a plan of your unit or a brochure, we can attach it to your listing. 

If you are sending us a lot of photos it may be worth resizing them. We normally suggest at least 640 x 480 and no bigger than 1200 x 900 . Click here for information on how to resize your images

Tips and things to avoid:

  • Try to make the trailer large as possible in the photo and do not capture random objects or distracting backgrounds. If your toilet is in storage pull it out if possible and find an attractive background. Rubbish and ramshackle buildings don't make your toilet trailer look good. 
  • Avoid camera shake - Take your photographs in a well lit area or outside. If possible use a tripod, or alternatively rest your camera on a solid object like a chair.
  • Only use flash as a last resort - it will not flatter the subject of your photograph.
  • If possible take the inside shots with an ultra wide angle lens. 
  • Make sure the photo is taken with the lighting from behind the photographer or bounced off the roof of the trailer. Back lit objects often appear much darker. 
  • The best outside photos show at least two sides of the trailer, you should be able to show four sides with two or three photos. Close ups are advisable to highlight any special features or to make buyers aware of any damaged areas.
