If you’ve recently upgraded your caravan and want to sell the old one, or simply have no use for the one you currently have so are looking to get some money for it, you might be wondering what the best way is to go about getting a good sale and the best price for your vehicle. Here are some handy tips that you might like to follow when putting your caravan up for sale. Read more from the official source.
Make sure it looks nice
Chances are that any potential buyers will want to come and see the trailers for sale that they’ve been looking at and considering purchasing, so it’s important to make sure that your trailer or caravan is in the best condition possible in order to appeal to them. If you haven’t used it in a while, you might find that the interior is a bit dusty or damp, so it’s always best to give it a thorough clean before you place a trailers for sale advert.
Don’t just advertise locally
Many potential buyers will travel to find a good caravan or trailer for themselves and their families, so expand your adverts from simply listing in the local newspaper’s classified pages. Although this can be a great place to start and shouldn’t be overlooked, you’ll get a lot more interest if you also advertise online, and in national caravanning magazines and newspapers. The online auction site eBay is an excellent place for selling many items, and many people looking to sell their trailer or caravan will list them on there. You can set the price at auction, or simply have a set price that you’d like the buyer to pay. One top tip is to always set your asking price a little higher than what you’d actually like, as then there’s some room if potential buyers try to offer you less. If you’re using eBay, though, remember that you’ll be charged selling fees if your caravan sells, so you might not end up getting as much money as you’d expected.
Find out what it’s worth
If you’ve had your caravan for a while and aren’t sure what it’s worth, you might end up guessing a price that could be far too high or far too low. In order to ensure that you get a good sale and make what your caravan’s worth, it’s a good idea to ask an expert to look at it and give you an idea of how much they think it will sell for.
