Ex British Gas Van Buyers

As the UK’s largest energy supplier, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the sight of a British Gas van. Infact, there is a chance that you’ll own one yourself. These vehicles are every bit as omnipresent as vans belonging to the National Grid, or local Water or Electric Boards.

Whether you’re an employee of the service provider or you picked up one of their vehicles for personal use, the blue markings of the van are unmistakable.

There is a knock-on effect to companies growing to the size of British Gas, though. A vehicle owned by such a giant business will see plenty of use. This means that, sooner or later, it will no longer be suitable for use. That’s where We Buy Broken Vans provide our own service.

This British Gas van is a write-off

That doesn’t matter to us. We appreciate that, if the van was in perfect working order, it would remain in use. Perhaps the van has been written off, either due to overuse or an accident while attending a call-out. Infact, we’ll likely improve upon any offer from your insurer – and, naturally, we don’t charge an excess.

This typically leaves the owner of the vehicle with three choices. The van can be left to rust and turn to ruin in a garage, no longer suitable for us but serving no useful purpose. It could be scrapped for spare parts or be part of an insurance claim write-off. Even worse the van could be abandoned, which is far from the most environmentally friendly option.

The final option is to obtain a quote and consider selling your broken van to us. We will ensure that the vehicle continues to be useful, even if it’s no longer able to perform its traditional service.

I planned to take my van to auction

We understand that We Buy Broken Vans is not the only game in town. You may be considering taking your van to an auction. If you find a buyer, even if they only plan to scrap the vehicle, you may even make more money than we can offer.

There will be other costs to this though, including your time and effort. If you decide to sell to us, we’ll collect the van ourselves and remove it from your premises. If it’s a non-starter, this may be a huge bonus. Dragging the van to an auction may be a costly and awkward exercise for you – and if you don’t receive an offer that you’d hoped for, you’ve wasted your time and money.

There is no such concern with us. Once we’ve offered a valuation, we’ll stand by it unless there are major undisclosed differences to the condition of the vehicle. It’s the closest thing to a sure thing that this world can offer.

What happens if I decide to sell you my van?

You’ll provide the registration number of the van, and we’ll make you an offer. If you’re not satisfied with that, then it’s not an issue. You’re free to proceed with a private sale, or an attempted repair.

If the quote is agreeable, just accept our offer. From there, we will arrange to view the vehicle at a time that suits you. By this stage, it’s a matter of formalities. We can shake hands on a deal, arrange the transfer of funds, and as long as you’re based within the UK mainland, we’ll take the van away for you.

Sell to us today

Selling an ex-British Gas van to us, regardless of its condition, is the easiest way to remove it from your property. The fact that we’ll be able to pay you for a broken-down vehicle just makes our service even more appealing. Get in touch today!
