You have may thought about selling your van by yourself. It is possible to do so, but it is not simple and painless experience. You have few options if you are trying to sell your van. These comprise private sale, advertised or dealership. To sell off your van privately you will need to either have connections that want to buy it or advertise your van so it gets sold. This takes time and money from you with no surety that it sells. You will spend hours on calls to potential van buyers. This consumes your time trying to follow through the odd people who may or may not even want to buy your van. You will then end up receiving calls from salesman telling you they will sell off 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 raises further risks. Not only you will have to deal with outsiders visiting your house, but you will fear 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 option you have is to sell off your van to dealership, but they are master in getting the lowest possible price. You will end up spending hours trying to get fair price and met with proposals much less than your van is worth.
Dealers are good at getting you to sell your van at the lowest possible value, so they can resell it and get a profit. Their evaluations can’t be justifiable, as you know they have purpose to make income.
