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 limited options if you are making attempt to sell your van. These include private sale, advertised or dealership. To sell your van privately you will need to either have connections that want to purchase it or advertise your van so it gets sold. This wastes time and money from you with no assurance that it sells. You will waste hours on calls to potential van buyers. This wastes your time trying to follow up the odd people who may or may not even agree to buy your van. You will then end up receiving 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 drive your van, than that raises new 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 visitors over, and you surely don’t want to damge your van.
One option you have is to sell your van to agent, but they are expert in making the lowest possible price. You will end up spending hours attempting to get good price and met with offers much less than your van is worth.
Dealers are good at getting you to sell your van at the lowest value possible, so they can resell it and get a profit. Their evaluations can’t be authentic, as you know they have a motive to make income.
