common questions selling a van

Well for a start off it’s our business, it’s what we do. We are passionate about the repair and recycling of old and broken vans in what is an extremely environmentally conscious and aware business. We take delight in seeing old and broken vans becoming useful and valuable again once more.

Naturally, this is a business we make a profit in, but we are also through our extensive understanding of the market able to offer our customers a really competitive price for their old and broken vans.

Scrap and salvage are terms relating to what happens to the van after we have bought it.

Salvage vans will either:

  1. have their parts stripped so that other vehicles can be fixed or
  2. have their parts replaced making the van roadworthy and usable again

Scrapped vans will simply be scrapped for often their metal value. They will have reached the end of their natural life and are no longer economical to repair. All vehicles scrapped in the UK need to be scrapped at an ATF (authorised treatment facility). They responsibly dispose of a van to legal guidelines.

Unless otherwise stated we work on an operating assumption that owners are supplying a “complete vehicle”. Vans with parts removed naturally are not expected and will reduce the valuation of the van. The level of valuation reduction will depend on parts removed with engines and gearboxes costing more than parts such as brake pads and wiper blades as examples!

Trick question. It’s awesome 🙂

As the name suggests, a non-runner is a van which no longer runs and drives. If you turn the key and the engine will not fire up, then you have a non-runner on your hands.

Of course there may be lots of different underlying issues which mean that a van is classed as a non-runner. It might be something simple, or it might be something serious. Whatever the case, whether your van has an untenable ECU or a gearbox that has ground to a halt, we will happily value it and collect it from you.

The reason we buy non-runners is that there is still plenty of value residing in even the most dilapidated, damaged van. Aside from the value that lies in the materials from which vans are made, there are also plenty of parts which can be recovered and resold. So even if a van is just fit for scrapping, we will buy it because that is the basis for our business.

Of course not all non-runners are beyond hope, which is why we are also willing to buy repairable vans which are currently out of action for some reason. For example, while it may not be economically viable for you to get it repaired, we might have the means to fix it and sell it at a profit.

There is a seven-day price guarantee on all valuations.

When you sell a car or commercial vehicle the DVLA MUST always be informed of the sale. You the present seller and current owner of the van are responsible for this procedure.

To sell your van to us simply detach the yellow part of your vehicle registration document V5C and complete section 9 as shown below:

Please leave the remainder of the V5C in the front glove box of the van at the time of collection.

We certainly do buy insurance write-off vehicles. These are a standard part of our business and we can often pay owners more than insurance companies are willing to pay, so call us now! Checkout our detailed page here, which also includes details about vans involved in accidents, which we also buy.

Online quotations are given in good faith and are based on the information provided. It’s important that this information is entered accurately to receive an accurate price. Any factor which influences price should be stated, e.g. missing parts, faulty parts, non-runner, etc.

We buy the vast majority of vans offered to us, but we do reserve the right to not buy a van. This decision is taken on a case by case basis.

After you have used our website to get your van valued, we can arrange to come out and pick it up. We operate across the country, so as long as your van is somewhere in the mainland UK we can recover it.

Best of all, we do not charge for this service, meaning that our van valuations are entirely transparent and there are no hidden extras to worry about further down the line.

Bear in mind that we do inspect all vans before we collect them to make sure that they match the description you provide and to gauge the accuracy of our original valuation.

Outstanding finance is a frequently used phrase in the used vans sales industry. This is a phrase used to describe where the owner still owes money to a finance company from the original purchase of the van.

Where money is owed to a finance company and a van is sold (whether innocently or deliberately) this is a fraud. The new van buyer won’t own the van as legally this is still owned by the finance company. Therefore, it is critical for owners to declare whether there is finance owing during discussions with us. We will complete checks to verify that finance isn’t owing anyway, but owner declarations help the process greatly.

Our process for buying a van with the outstanding finance is detailed below:

• Declaration – Van owner declares to us that there is (or is not) outstanding finance on the van
• Finance Company contact – Once we have finance company details we contact them and pay all finance owing. Two potential scenarios arise now for van owners:
o Where o/s finance is higher than online valuation – We need a payment from you
o Where o/s finance is less than online valuation – We pay you the difference (e.g. if we paid £3000 for a van with £1000 o/s finance, we would send you £2,000)
• Usual process applies – once the finance is paid our usual process will apply. Note: We Buy Broken Vans will never buy a van, without clearing finance, as this is illegal
