You have possibly thought about selling your van by yourself. It is possible to do so, but it is not simple and painless experience. You have little choice if you are trying to sell your van. These include private sale, advertised or dealership. To sell off your van privately you will need to either have connections that want to purchase it or advertise your van so it gets sold. This takes time and money from you with no surety that it sells. You will waste hours on the phone to potential van buyers. This consumes your time attempting to follow through the strange people who may or may not even want to buy your van. You will then end up receiving calls from salesman informing you they will sell your van for you for a fee, which take up even more of your time. If potential buyers want to test ride your van, than that poses further risks. Not only you will have to deal with outsiders visiting your house, but you will worry that they might harm] your van on their test drive. Most likely you don’t want outsiders over, and you surely don’t want to damge your van.
One option you have is to sell your van to dealership, but they are skillful in getting the lowest price possible. You will end up wasting hours trying to get good price and met with offers way less than your van is deserving.
Dealers are great at getting you to sell your van at the lowest value possible, so they can resell it and get a profit. Their assessments can’t be legitimate, as you know they have purpose to make income.
