You have possibly thought about selling your van by yourself. It is possible to do so, but it is not easy and painless experience. You have limited options 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 publicise your van so it gets sold. This takes time and money from you with no assurance that it sells. You will waste hours on phone calls to potential van buyers. This wastes 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 getting calls from salesman 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 drive your van, than that poses further risks. Not only you will have to handle outsiders coming to your house, but you will worry that they might harm] your van on their test drive. Certainly you don’t want visitors over, and you surely don’t want to damge your van.
One option you have is to sell off your van to agent, but they are expert in making the lowest price possible. You will end up spending hours trying to get better price and met with offers much less than your van is deserving.
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 authentic, since you know they have an intention to make income.
