Vans for Sale
If you want to buy a van, there are two ways to go. You can buy a new van or a used one. New vans are expensive, and you could save a pretty penny, simply by buying a used van. There are several reasons why used vans are sold off by their owners. Some of them could have met with an accident and sustained damage, where the cost of repairs can outweigh the value of the vehicle itself.
Sometimes they are insurance write-offs – falling under categories N and S. Still others could be hived off by their owners simply because they wish to upgrade and buy a new van. Finally, there are vans out there which are broken down and have stopped functioning altogether. Such vans would not be bought by a regular buyer. In this article, we will take you through the various categories of sale that used vans fall under. This would give you a general idea of what to expect when you try to sell your van in the market.
Cat N vans
It has been two years now that new insurance write-off categories have been introduced in the UK. Categories S and N replaced the previous categories which were called C and D. A category N (previously D) is a van that has been through an accident, but suffered minimum damage, with no structural damage at all. As repairs are mainly cosmetic in nature, they are a good buy, as minimum repairs need to be carried out. However, the owner needs to declare that the vehicle did meet with an accident at the time of sale.
Cat S vans
A ‘Cat S’ van (previously C) has unfortunately sustained structural damage. Usually, it’s the chassis or suspension that has taken a hit. Vehicles like this can be repaired and taken back on the road, but it needs to be re-registered with the DVLA. Specialists like ourselves undertake repairs, take care of all the paperwork and re-introduce the vehicle on the roads.
Fully working vans
Yes, we get calls from sellers each day regarding vans that are perfectly in order and fully working. But, of course, they are old. There are sometimes minor faults like oil pressure issues or problems with the wiring loom, etc. These need to be declared at the time of sale.
Broken down vans
If the van has stopped working altogether, it can still be sold. We Buy Broken Vans buys such vans as the lead to a number of different outcomes. Sometimes, their parts are stripped and used to repair other vehicles. In other cases, the parts can be replaced, and the vehicle repaired. It’s important to note that by doing this we prevent many a van from ending up in a landfill. This significantly reduces environmental impact, as these vehicles are recycled.
