If you think a private sale is the best way to sell a broken van this article will give you some food for thought. Here we discuss a variety of reasons to sell to We Buy Broken Vans and avoid private sales at all costs!
Can you actually sell the broken van?
Selling a broken van to a private buyer is actually quite difficult. The reason for this is that most private buyers don’t want to buy vans which are broken! Ask yourself would you want to buy a van which is faulty?
Main private buyers of broken vans are likely to be mechanics who can repair the van either for their own use or more likely for resale. For this reason, even if you can sell the van it’s likely to be for a low price and very likely to be for much lower than we would pay.
The speed of sale and payment
If speed is important to you then consider how long a private sale may take to complete. If you don’t personally know a buyer there is the time taken to advertise and the time needed to arrange an appointment. Sell to We Buy Broken Vans and we can complete most van purchases in 2-3 days.
Value your time
According to Statista, the average hourly rate in the UK for 2017 was £13.94. So, broadly we can say on average that every hour you spend selling a van costs a person on average £14. When we think about it, nothing is more precious to us than our time. Avoid tyre-kickers and timewasters by selling a van today to We Buy Broken Vans.
Avoid the costs of sale
Selling privately almost always involves extra costs of sale. These could include the cost of advertising and promotional materials, the costs of travel (if you drive to the buyer), auction fees (if sold on eBay, Gumtree etc.) Most owners in their minds think they sold a van for say £3,000 but don’t take the costs of sales off. Always take into the cost of sale, as it’s what cash that lands in your bank account after the sale which matters most.
