What is meant by the term ex-recovery vans?

We buy all types of recovery vans, here is what we mean by the term:

  • Vans, which have been involved previously in some form of recovery type work
  • Vans which transported vehicle(s) from one location to another

  • We buy the larger recovery trucks too which have tilting beds to drive cars onto, as well as smaller towing vans

The ex-recovery van buyers process in short

Here we explain the buying process in short, which can take as little as 2-3 days:

  • Owners enter the registration number via our valuation page
  • Our automated valuation engine provides a free online with no obligation valuation
  • The quotation is accepted
  • Upon quotation acceptance, we make contact to arrange an appointment
  • At the appointment:
    • A trained engineer/driver also inspects the van
    • If its condition is accurate to the online valuation, we value the van the same or
    • May reduce the valuation if the condition is worse
    • We confirm final valuation for the van (which in most cases is the same as offered online)
    • Once the final valuation is accepted, we collect the van and remove it from the premises
