Selling Your Caravan

Selling or Buying Your CaravanThis page has been set up to help caravan or lodge owners in the UK get the very best deal possible, once the decision to either buy or sell a holiday home has been made. During the time you own your own holiday home, you will inevitably build up many years of happy memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. However, when you decide to either buy or sell your holiday home, this can be an overwhelming experience. Whether this experience is good or bad will depend on who your first point of contact is when deciding how to buy or sell your holiday home. Ultimately their experience, manner and attitude will determine whether you buy from them or sell to them.

This whole website is set up by a team of holiday park industry trained individuals who aim to give you totally unbiased guidance throughout the process of buying a holiday home or  selling a holiday home. We can help you by informing you of the options which are available to you, advising you on how to  buy or sell a holiday home effectively and last but not least answer this key question:“ AM I GETTING THE RIGHT DEAL AND A FAIR PRICE?”

Our aim is to ensure that you get the very best advice to help you get the best possible deal.

We can offer you help every step of the way through-out the whole process.

Why are we different from others?

Selling Your Caravan

Selling your caravan can be a daunting experience, and you have 3 options.

Option 1: Sell The Caravan Back To The Park

Selling your caravan or lodge back to the park you are on may well be seen as an easy and quick option, however, be mindful that the park will offer you the lowest price possible. Also be aware that you may have kept your caravan in an immaculate condition, however the only detail a park is really interested in is how old the caravan or lodge is.

Option 2: Sell The Caravan To A Dealer

Selling your caravan to a Caravan Trader is a simple process. You find out what traders are in your area, contact them and someone will arrange to come and view your caravan with the view to removing it from the Park. Usually a Caravan Trader will offer a better price than the Park.

Option 3: Sell Your Caravan Privately On The Park

Selling your Caravan privately is more time consuming than option 1 or 2, as you have to advertise your caravan for example in a newspaper or on a website. Often selling in this way you can get a better price, but remember that people who are attracted to your caravan may want to meet you to view your caravan(an alternative way to showcase your caravan is by using our "virtual show ground" feature ). If they like the caravan they might offer you a price which is below the asking price. Bear in mind that when you sell privately you will have to pay the Park a 15% commission + Vat. For example: If a member of the public offers you £10,000 for the caravan, you will have to pay the park £1,500 commission plus £300 VAT. Therefore in total you will pay the Park £1,800 plus any gas tests or electric tests which need to be done. These average around £55.00 each. From the initial offer of £10,000 you will walk away with £8,090.

 

Should you want or need more advice on this do not hesitate to call us. We offer options and solutions to make the selling process far more easier and less time consuming.

Our aim is to help you sell your caravan and give you the best advice to achieve the best price for your caravan or lodge.
