If you’re ready to sell your camper van, perhaps to make more money to put toward an upgraded small RV, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of actually selling it, you might want to consider selling your RV via consignment. By selling your RV through consignment you don’t have to worry about paperwork, marketing, or negotiations, as they are all handled by professionals. When choosing who to sell your RV it’s important to consider what the seller’s experience in the industry is. At Vantastic Vans we offer an experienced sales team who will help you sell your RV for top dollars. You also want to ensure the dealer’s process is easy to understand. Our process at Vantastic Vans is very black and white. Our sales manager simply draws up an agreement that details the exact RV being sold and the minimum net selling price you are willing to accept. Our goal is to make you the most money possible, so we retain only the portion of the selling price that exceeds the minimum net selling price specified in your consignment agreement.
Before you sell your camper van you need to follow a few important tips to make sure you get the most for your it.
Clean It | Dedicate several hours to detailing the inside and outside of the RV. Make sure it is in pristine condition, doesn’t have any strange smells, and is showroom ready. Try putting an air freshener under a cabinet or in a hidden area. Choose a scent that isn’t too overpowering, yet still noticeable. Avoid overly floral or tropical scents.
Remove All Traces Of You | Yup, remove anything that wasn’t standard in the RV. You might love your custom curtains, but potential buyers might not. By removing every trace of your existence you help potential buyers envision themselves in the RV and will be able to sell the RV faster.
Be Thorough | Test every light switch to make sure your lights are working. Replace any broken or dead light bulbs. Empty and clean your holding tanks as potential buyers will likely want to inspect these before signing on the dotted line. Check to make sure all systems are a go and buyers don’t have anything that they could point out as a potential bargaining tool when it comes to negotiating the price.
Insurance | Be sure to check with your insurance company to confirm whether your RV will be covered in case of an accident, theft, or vandalism while it is on the dealer’s lot. Although the dealer is working to sell your RV it’s still your responsibility to consider certain risks and make sure you and your RV are protected.
Set A Minimum Net Selling Price | Talk with the consignment team and check out NADA to get an idea of the minimum net selling price you are willing to accept. This might be just enough to pay off the RV or enough to put toward your dream rig. Whatever it is we can help you determine a realistic number and will do our best to make sure you meet that goal!
