Our Traders – FAQ’s

How much is it to do a Car Boot?

UNFORTUNATLEY WE ARE UNABLE TO OPEN OUR CAR BOOT SALE AT THE PRESENT TIME AS WE ARE ONLY ALLOWING OUR MARKET TRADERS TO SELL NEW ITEMS. WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING FURTHER GUIDANCE FROM THE WELSH GOVERNMENT AND WILL UPDATE OUR CUSTOMERS AS SOON AS IS POSSIBLE.

What time should I arrive to do a Car boot?

On Saturday’s we would advise to get here at around 6am
and on Sunday’s 6.30am.

I’d like to come on as a casual trader, do I need to book my pitch?

Yes in order to book a pitch you will need to go to https://www.tirprince.co.uk/markets/book-a-pitch/ please register using your email and creating a password you can then go and book you pitch by filling in all of the details. It is important that you put a correct telephone number on the details as we may wish to speak to you before you attend.

I’m a casual market trader, what time should I arrive?

Our gates open at 6am on a weekend casual traders that have booked a pitch online should report to the main gate with their proof of booking on arrival.

How big a pitch will I get as a casual trader?

We work on a minimum of 20ft frontage, although in some cases we can accomodate smaller pitches if it suits.

How do I become a regular trader?

The best way to become a regular trader is to be committed to do the market everyday it is open.
Once you have been for a couple of weeks we can then look at gettting you a regular pitch in a position that suits both you and the other traders around you. (for example, should you be selling cosmetics we will avoid putting you next to a trader selling the same product)

Then it’s simply a matter of paying a reservation fee, and from then the pitch is yours. This will mean you do not have to queue and your rent is £5 cheaper than that of a casual trader.
