Selling a van can be a tricky business, especially if you don’t know enough about the market and valuation. Of course, it’s easy to get some kind of valuation online these days based on generic data, such as the make, model, features, mileage and year of manufacture. But, the real price that your van can fetch will depend upon its condition under the hood.

Making a private sale

All of this becomes an issue when selling a van privately. First of all, you have to list your vehicle for sale. This requires a certain amount of lead time, as you put out your advert on different sites, take pictures of the vehicle and upload them, and handle emails and phone calls from interested parties. In all probability, you will get buyers who are mechanics themselves and claim to have good knowledge about vans and their engines. Of course, they may make you an offer that’s far lower than the market price of your vehicle. In this situation, a lack of technical knowledge could be a problem for you, when deciding whether or not to accept this offer.

You need to ensure that the money is in your bank before you hand over the keys. Additionally, there is the hassle of getting the ownership transferred to the new owner. As you can see, the possibility of getting ripped off while parting with your vehicle is a risk.

In order to eliminate this risk, it may be a lot better to deal with a reputed buyer of used vans, who can give you a proper valuation for your vehicle and conduct the sale with transparency.
