Buy Used Vans

A van is a great asset to own, as long as it’s in good shape. Once the years go by, your vehicle can start developing problems and become a liability. Often, it’s at this stage that van owners decide to sell it off and get a new one. However, selling isn’t as easy as it sounds. There are many private buyers or smaller dealers who buy used vans but will only offer you a heavily discounted price. That’s where a trusted nationwide buyer like We Buy Broken Vans comes in. We can buy your van and offer you the best market price for your vehicle. Here’s how.

Why do we buy used vans?

In many cases, vans come to us in a rundown condition. There could be a host of problems with the engine, electrical components or even the differential. Many vans have completely stopped working and we buy these as well. In a nutshell, we take great pride in restoring and repairing these vans and get them back on the road. Many such vans are perfectly repairable, and it would be a shame to see them scrapped and discarded as waste. In some cases, we have to do that as well. We often salvage usable parts from nonworking vans, and these go into restoring other vehicles. Although our name makes it sound as though we only buy broken vans, we do purchase vans in full working order as well.

Insurance write-offs

If a van has met with an accident, there’s a good chance that it could be written off by an insurer as a category S or N vehicle. Cat N vehicles only have cosmetic damage and are highly repairable. We can get such a vehicle back on the road in no time. Cat S vehicles usually have heavier damage, including structural issues. They also require to be re-registered with the DVLA before they can hit the road again. At We Buy Broken Vans we buy vans that fall under both these categories of insurance write-offs.

Classification of old vans

Of course, there are certain limits to how old a van can be for us to buy. We generally buy vans that have a registration date of 2001 onwards. We classify an old van to be at least 10 years old. So, if a van has been registered by the DVLA between the years 2001 to 2009, We Buy Broken Vans would be very interested in purchasing such a van. We buy used vans of this age, as they are ideal for repairs, scrapping or salvaging for parts.
