What should I know before selling my caravan?

You've listed your vehicle on caravancampingsales but now what?

Here are a few tips to help you prepare your vehicle for sale and give you the best chance of selling quickly and at your ideal price.

  • Place your For Sale sticker on your vehicle: Your sticker is an easy and effective way of advertising your vehicle while on the roads. Your sticker is best placed on the lower left-hand side of your back window, that way it does not obstruct your view and gives it maximum exposure

  • Give your vehicle a good clean: It’s important that your vehicle looks its very best while you’re in the process of selling. Remove any personal items from your vehicle and consider spending a bit of extra money on a professional detail clean

  • Don’t forget about your vehicle’s engine bay: Prospective buyers will often lift the bonnet on your vehicle and inspect the engine. Make sure your engine oil is at the right level and has been changed recently. Also, remove anything that may be trapped around your engine like loose leaves

  • Make sure your vehicle is up to date with servicing & consider doing some low cost repairs: Small improvements like touching up scratches, dents or any broken parts aren't time consuming and could boost the appearance of your vehicle dramatically

  • Check if you need a roadworthy certificate: In some states, you will be required to provide a roadworthy certificate before selling your vehicle. It’s a good idea to check with your state’s road authority to ensure you have all the necessary documentation to make for a smooth sale

  • Contact your finance company: If your vehicle is under finance, you should contact your finance company to arrange for it to be paid out upon sale

  • Monitor your ad’s performance: caravancampingsales will send you a weekly ad performance email. Keep an eye on this – if your ad is not attracting many views or if you haven’t received many enquiries, consider lowering your price and adding additional photos and comments.

  • Know how to manage enquiries: Once your ad is live on caravancampingsales, you’ll start to receive enquiries from potential buyers. To avoid being caught off guard, it’s a good idea to have a list prepared about your vehicle’s history. Include details such as; your vehicle’s odometer reading, service record, number of previous owners, colours and extra features and make a note of any minor damages to report
