Shipping, Pickup, & Registration information

SHIPPING

Arete has been building and shipping trailers all around the world for many years, so our expertise is second to none when it comes to mastering the logistics involved in properly loading and shipping such a large fragile item.

 

Our custom food trucks take 4-6 months to arrive anywhere in the world. 

You can see all of our flat-rate shipping fees to the major ports at the bottom of this page.  

 

We ship your custom food vending trailer via freight to all major cities, loading them into large 40 ft containers, and every food trailer we ship is fully secured and shipped insured, so any damages that may occur are fully covered in the very rare case there are any damages.  

 

We provide a tracking number for your trailer once shipping is booked out, and then will provide a more accurate pick-up date for your custom concession trailer once it has arrived at your nearest major city.   Each order is given careful guidance through the whole process, including the shipping, where we will continuously keep you updated and guided on when your trailer is expected to ship, arrive, and pick up.

 

Arete has partnered with the most professional global logistics providers to allow the most reliable shipping, unloading, and assembly of our trailers.  

Whether you decide to pickup your trailer at the nearest major city, or if we are shipping directly to your home, your concession trailer will be fully assembled and ready to go, with the exceptions of our generator boxes, AC units, and Hollywood light letters, which will have all hardware and instructions to help install.

 

We provide the Bill of sale & Certificate of Origin for you to register your vending trailer with DMV, so transporting the trailer to DMV is allowed to register it.

DMV registration

For registration at DMV, we will provide you the bill of sale, the certificate of origin, all customs documentation, DMV HS7 document, and FMVSS letterhead, including the concession trailer's newly generated Vin #.  Simply go to your local DMV & fill out a standard registration form.  Go to the DMV with your food trailer, bring all your documentation, and the DMV will check out your vending trailer to approve it DOT-approved.  Some DMVs may not require your trailer to be taken on-site.

Return & Warranty Policy

We have a 1-year manufacturer's limited warranty on the food trailer build & appliances used in your concession cart.  If anything is faulty with either your food trailer or the appliances in your vending cart, we will ship out additional items, pay for repairs, ship out a new appliance, or completely refund the appliance.  This warranty is limited to non-accidental and non-operational instances where the item ceases to work or malfunctions.

The refund policy on our trailers is fully outlined in the sales agreement contract we send to you before we start your order.
