THANK YOU for your request

What happens next?

  • Check your inbox.

    We just sent you an e-mail asking you to book a call to further clarify your request. In case you missed it or forget; don’t worry, we will continue to follow up by e-mail and by calling you on the number provided until we manage to get in touch.

  • Please use the Calendly link in the e-mail to schedule an intake conversation at a time of your convenience.

    We know our form already asks a lot of questions – but specific details of your business really do matter a lot. Every truck and trailer is unique – and we need details in order to give you the right quote and advice, and this is in our experience still best discussed over the phone. 

  • We discuss your food truck needs in detail during a 15-30 minute conversation.

  • You receive your quote – usually within a week after the intake conversation, although more complex quotes, for example for harder to find vintage vehicles will take longer.
 
  • If you are interested in or doubting between different models it is not necessary to put in another request: we can discuss your options over the phone and will send you all the options discussed in a quote after our call.

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course!

Karpatia has no showroom – but of course, we are always happy to show the workshop. You can make an appointment through our contact form and try before you buy. 

Karpatia is an international company present in both the USA and the EU. 

Our US office is in Maryland, our EU offices are in Rotterdam (Holland) and Budapest (Hungary).

Yes, with the caveat that there are no “US Standards”. Unfortunately regulations differ substantially from state to state and county to county. 

We will work together with you and local regulators to ensure compliance.

Yes, all parts and equipment are fully EU approved with a CE marking and certificate of conformity. For DACH and Dutch customers it is additionally possible to have every trailer or truck part TüV approved for a small price increase. 

Yes, we have financing partners and a lease program for qualifying customers.

We will gladly build a truck or trailer for customers in Canada, the UK or Australia.

We will need a little more cooperation with you to get it up to local code than we would for US or EU customers. 

In addition please note for UK and AU customers that it can be very very very hard to find a right-hand drive version of most of the vintage food truck models if not outright impossible.

Containers go everywhere, and all units can always be shipped to the nearest port. We might not have a local forwarder in your country (yet) though, in which case we will find one together with you. 

On average it will take 16 weeks from the day we receive your deposit to the day your food truck or trailer is delivered. 

That average includes the shipping time, the time spent sourcing a vintage vehicle and the time spent on ideation and design.

  • We ask for a 10% deposit when confirming your order to cover the costs of design and book a slot in production as well as reserving your (vintage) vehicle. 
  • After you confirm the design, usually after two to three weeks, we ask for another 50% deposit to cover the initial work.
  • After your final inspection and approval we ask for the final 40% payment to be completed before we deliver your unit.
 
All our other terms can be found under the “Terms and conditions” link on the bottom of this page.
