Buy Second Hand Vans

There’s an old song by a Canadian rock band from the 60s called ‘The Guess Who’. The words of the song go – “Don’t give me no hand-me-down world – I got one already.” At We Buy Broken Vans, we beg to differ. Infact, the ‘hand me down’, second-hand vans is what we’re after. People often ask us why. We are incredibly passionate about repairing old vans and getting them back on the road. In the process, every van that we repair steers away from the landfill and ends up back on the nation’s highways. We find this rewarding.

What kind of vans do we buy?

Well, anything and everything. We purchase vans that have been impacted by an accident. Many van owners are keen to sell these off, as they expect problems to creep in later. Sometimes, they are written off by an insurer and fall under the categories of S and N. In such cases, we assess the possibility of repairs to the van, and in most cases, we pick them up. Many vans come to us with a host of different issues. These range from cambelt problems, problems with the differential, wiring issues, faulty gearboxes and problems with the engine. Sometimes, there are no problems at all. Many van owners sell off an old van that’s in fine working order.

How do we buy second-hand vans?

Our buying process is very comprehensive and simple. The first thing you need to do if you’re selling off your van is to visit the website – www.webuybrokenvans.co.uk. On our site, you can find an online evaluation tool. Simply put down the registration number of your van and the details will come up automatically. The next thing you need to do is update all the information related to its condition. If you want a correct evaluation, please do mention any problems with your vehicle. If you’re selling it off as a category S or N, this needs to be mentioned as well. You will then receive an online quote, which we will honour, as long as the vehicle condition details were filled in correctly.

Getting an assessment done

Once you receive your online valuation, please contact our customer services team in order to book an appointment with an assessor. Our assessor simply crosschecks the details of your van’s condition, as declared by you. If everything is fine, we would collect your vehicle at the agreed time and date, usually within four working days. There are many ways in which we can pay you for your van. We could do a bank transfer or send money to your PayPal account. It’s important to note that all the documentation needs to be fully completed, including section 9 of the yellow part of your V5C (vehicle registration document). This needs to be detached and handed over to us, along with any other documents like your MOT certificate and servicing record.

Get in touch with our team at We Buy Broken Vans
