* The U.S. has trucks filled with various types of food and drink that go around to any place with groups of people (construction sites, office buildings, college campuses, etc.) and sell to the people there. Most common are sandwich trucks and taco truck (see CuisinesInAmerica for details).
** This practice is also becoming common in Britain, normally as a sideline run by a local cafe. More elaborate setups offering hotdogs, burgers etc cooked while you wait tend to be found in lay-bys, the parking lots of retail parks or dotted around pedestrianised shopping areas. They're also invariably found at markets or county fairs. Food quality ranges from [[SoOkayItsAverage unspectacular but perfectly edible]] to OrgasmicallyDelicious.
** There are also the ever-famous food carts, which typically stay in one place on the sidewalk all day, but can be moved very easily to follow traffic patterns; these are common in cities around the world, but are particularly common on the East Coast of the US, and most especially in [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity New York]], where they are practically a religion.
* Bookmobiles, or mobile libraries as they're known in Britain.
* There are companies out there that will wash your car and/or repair windshields on the spot (well in the parking lot anyway)
* [[BadHumorTruck Ice cream trucks]].
* Also old-time cigarette girls.
* Most of the [[SnakeOilSalesman alleged doctors]] in the WildWest would [[MedicineShow travel by wagon]] from town to town selling a 'miracle elixir' said to cure whatever ailment they could come up with. These show up in Westerns from time to time.
* A close relative of this trope is the concept of the mobile [=MRI=] scanner, which is built into the trailer unit of an 18-wheeler and rotated between multiple small hospitals in rural areas.
* Those Mexican ice cream men, who literally drag their store around behind them.
* Japan has the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yatai_%28retail%29 yatai]]''
