    Question Sold a boat and trailer on Kijiji but guy hasn't picked up

    Hey guys, been a looooong while since I've posted on here. Googled around for a bit trying to find some answers but couldn't find anything definitive.

    Anyways, a week ago, I sold a guy an inflatable boat along with a motor and trailer. At the time, he took the boat and motor in his small SUV as the boat is easily packed away but he was unable to take the trailer at the time as he had no hitch to do so. He paid for everything in full and I had to make 2 separate bill of sales, 1 for the boat and 1 for the trailer as they both have VINs. He told me he would return to get the trailer the next day but hasn't.

    Just wondering, as he hasn't replied to me via Kijiji or calls, what can I do with the trailer? I know there is some time before it can be considered abandoned property but all I can find online is in reference to Landlords and previous tenants property they left behind.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? Has this happened to someone before and can chime in on what they were able to do?

    Thanks,

    Topher.

    Maybe he has Corona and is hospitalized. I mean it has only been a week, if it was 2 years then that's a diff story.

    I would do this, you've been paid in full so you're only out the inconvenience of having the trailer still. Wait 30 days, keep attempting to contact him, if 30 days passes I'd consider the possession rules would play into it. Keep it all documented, sell the trailer. I suppose the hangup is that he has a BOS with the VIN, but there has to be a way around that, we would have abandoned cars all the time when I was in auto body, I just can't remember how we managed them

    You have two BOS so one of them must have his address.
    Drop it off and be done with it.

    Park it out on the street call bylaw about a detached trailer without a license plate that's been abandoned.

    Then when they send you a bill/registered letter take bill of sale to them. Done.

    Because someone showed up to buy a boat with trailer... Unequipped to haul the trailer... Took the boat + motor that they clearly wanted - then ghosted.

    Odds are 1 in 1000 that they come back for the trailer... After dissapearing for a week with no contact - pretty good odds it's not even in the realm of intention.

    Give it a couple weeks, then post “free boat” trailer on Kijiji and leave it in the alley (preferably nowhere near your property).

    Less politically correct but our old solution was always leave it unlocked somewhere near the res.

    Then it’s not your problem.

    Some people aren’t really as into the internet as we are, might sound crazy but some people don’t sit on the internet and their phones all day every day.

    Ah, that's a possibility. I hadn't thought of that. But is the trailer really such a low value item in the package? I wouldn't think so

    If one really doesn't want the trailer... And has the ability to clearly transport without...

    Buy a hitch (250ish) + install... + Wiring harness (75$?) + install. What's a trailer plate these days 85$? Then try to sell a trailer on Kijiji...

    I can totally see someone never having intended to pickup the trailer, came to buy a boat without a trailer hitch... Probably never had any intention of taking it.

    This or drop it off at his house. You can’t resell it, he has a bill of sale, that would be theft.

    YES this!

    I'm not trying to be mean or anything. I've been on kijiji for years and never had anything like this happen so its just an odd situation for me. Especially if they have paid for it. The trailer alone is probably worth a few hundred dollars or more, good for about a 16 ft aluminum boat. Lots of people were messaging me just to buy the trailer.

    I figured that if I try to sell right away that it would be theft or something along that line, that is not my intention. I just don't know my options especially if the guy isn't responding. Yes its only been a week, but again, I've never had this happen before so I don't know what to do, hence this post.

    Yes he signed a BOS for the trailer.

    Its just taking up space on my parking pad, so not a huge issue to leave there for a bit, but really I don't want it sitting on my property if its not mine.

    Thanks for the insight guys.

    Are there professional ramifications with this individual?

    Send him a message saying this...

    Do you want the trailer or not? you have 3 days to pick up the trailer, or else I am going to put it in the middle of the street, and phone it in as abandoned, and provide the city with the bill of sale showing you own it, and thus responsible for it. If you don't want it, I am going to dispose of it and you agree to release any claim on it.

    And then call me, because I could really use a small trailer for hauling stuff around for myself and Beyonders lol

    Ever since beer league when the other team's goalie no showed for a playoff game resulting in them forfeiting - reason being - goalie was in jail.
