Before creating your free van advert, you will need to find out some information about your van. You will need to know your van’s specification, the miles it has done, and when it last had its MOT. Potential buyers might ask to see proof of these things, so make sure you have got all the relevant information at hand before you sell your van in case someone asks.

Set the price to sell your van

You probably have a price in your head that you want to sell your van for. However, you need to think about whether it is realistic and whether it is worth that price. If you set the price too high then you could miss out on buyers who wouldn’t be willing to pay that. You are able to value your van by entering your registration on the Instant Car Check website. This will give you an idea of how much you can sell your van for.

Take good photos of the van you’re selling

You can take professional-looking photos by making sure the lighting is good, the images show off the van in a positive light, and that you have images from all angles. If you do not have enough photos, it can be off-putting for potential buyers who think you might have something to hide. Before you take the photos ensure that your van is clean and tidy.
