My Van is a Non-Runner – Can We Buy Broken Vans Recover and Buy the Van?

 We Buy Broken Vans is a long-established buyer of vans. As the name suggests we specialise in buying broken/faulty vans but we are also happy to buy fully operational and roadworthy vans too!

We have a simple process of customers receiving an online valuation, which leads to an appointment being booked and completion of the sale. Frequently the entire process can be completed in around 2 days.

We buy all kinds of vans including commercials, Luton’s, minibuses, recovery trucks and even camper vans.

We buy all types of brands but regularly, in particular, buy Citroen, Fiat, Ford, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Vauxhall and Volkswagen vans.

In theory, we buy any faulty van, but obviously, we need to make a profit from each vehicle we buy. Visit our common faults section for further information but frequent issues include snapped cambelts, differential issues, DPF replacement, ECU remapping, engine related issues, gearbox repairs/replacement, fuel pump issues, timing chain issues and wiring loom problems, etc.

It’s also worth mentioning that we purchase both the right-hand as well as left-hand drive models of vans.

In essence a contract will be entered into between the seller and We Buy Broken Vans. The contract is an agreement for We Buy Broken Vans to buy a van for an agreed price with the seller. A contract is in place to protect both the buyer and seller, in particular we create a contract subject to the vehicle being “as described” in the online valuation details, which entered by the seller.
