You have may thought about selling your van by yourself. It is feasible to do so, but it is not simple and painless experience. You have few options if you are trying to sell your van. These include private sale, advertised or dealership. To sell your van privately you will require to either have contacts that want to buy it or publicise your van so it gets sold. This takes time and money from you with no guarantee that it sells. You will spend hours on calls to potential van buyers. This wastes your time trying to follow through the strange people who may or may not even want to buy your van. You will then end up getting calls from sales people informing you they will sell your van for you for a fee, which consumes 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 strangers visiting your house, but you will worry that they might harm] your van on their test drive. Certainly you don’t want outsiders over, and you surely don’t want to damge your van.
One choice you have is to sell your van to dealership, but they are master in making the lowest price possible. You will end up spending hours attempting to get better price and met with offers much less than your van is worth.
Dealers are great at getting you to sell your van at the lowest possible value, so they can resell it and earn a profit. Their evaluations can’t be justifiable, as you know they have a motive to make profit.
