by Chris Gage, Motorhome & Caravan Broker
Lots of people sell their leisure vehicles privately to get the best return on their investment, rather than selling to a dealer, who of course needs to make a profit for their business. But not everyone relishes the experience of valuing, marketing and selling their pride and joy.
There can be many reasons for sale, including bereavement, separation, illness – all things which can bring mixed emotions when dealing with a life change which forces parting with something often linked to many happy memories. Then there are questions of security, qualifying who is coming to the house and how to ensure payment is received safely – the unprecedented rise of fraudulent activity is well documented.
Using a professional broker takes the emotion and anxiety out of the sale. Motorhome Depot has a tried and trusted process for handling sales on behalf of private clients, to make the process of parting with a valuable item smooth and secure. When I am asked to appraise a client vehicle, I am looking at it in both the eyes of the seller as well as the buyer, aiming to achieve a fair result for each, so that everyone is happy with the outcome. I take care of the entire sale process from beginning to end, from initial photography, listing on all the key websites, screening all enquiries, attending all viewings, negotiating the sale and ensuring that the money is safely in the client’s bank when they hand over the keys to the new owner.
Buyers also recognise Motorhome Depot as a trusted service and are attracted by competitive pricing, professional enquiry handling and financial transaction security. That’s why, as a national network, we transact hundreds of private motorhome and caravan sales every month. If you are thinking of selling, contact Chris for an informal chat on 07375 074407 to see what we can do for you.
I’m here to take the hassle out of selling privately, avoiding the pitfalls and getting you the best return.
