Ex RAC Van Buyers

Anybody that spends time sailing up and down the nation’s motorways will be familiar with RAC vans. These famous orange vehicles have been assisting road users in a state of emergency for years.

Counting these vehicles and comparing the tally to that of RAC’s competitors AA and Green Flag, can make a great car game to keep the kids amused on long journeys. The only business fleet vans likely to crop up as often are water board vans.

Unfortunately, life is filled with little ironies. After putting countless hours and miles of service into helping road users in distress, RAC vans start to break down themselves. What happens to these vehicles when they are no longer fit for purpose? They can be sold and granted a new lease of life.

My van has seen a lot of use, are you sure that you’re interested?

We are wholly realistic about the condition that a broken RAC van would be in. These vans have toured the length and breadth of the nation, many times over. In addition, they will have been used to tow broken-down vehicles from the side of the road. That is going to put a great many miles on the odometer and cause no shortage of wear-and-tear.

This will not diminish our interest. We remain keen to investigate the possibility of purchasing any ex-RAC van. Whether you’re retiring the vehicle to invest in an upgrade, or it requires more mechanical and aesthetic work than you consider financially prudent, we’re interested.

I might make more money selling my van privately

This is always a possibility. It’s impossible to accurately gauge the value of a van on the private market – it’s worth however much somebody is prepared to pay for it. The question to ask yourself is whether you have the time and inclination to entertain private buyers.

You’ll need to arrange viewings and negotiations on somebody else’s schedule. You’ll need to undergo a potentially lengthy and frustrating process of haggling. The private seller could change their mind at the eleventh hour, leaving with you a van that you do not want and several hours of your life that you’ll never get back.

You won’t need to worry about that with us. At We Buy Broken Vans, we value your time. In the vast majority of occasions, we pay the price quoted on our initial estimate. If this changes for any reason upon inspection, we’ll explain exactly why and give you the option of cancelling the transaction.

I’m interested, what do I do now?

If you’re keen to sell your ex-RAC van, we’re keen to buy it. All we need from you is to pop the registration number of the vehicle into our home page screen. From there, we’ll offer a provisional valuation and one of our team will get in touch to arrange a viewing of the van at a time that suits you.

Once you confirm that you’re happy with the price, we can complete the transaction in short order. We’ll remove the vehicle from your premises to save you a job and arrange the transfer of funds often on the same day, the entire process is often only 2-3 days. It really is that easy, so contact us!
