Sell your van

 

Believe it or not, trying to determine the value of a conversion van can be quite a tricky task and if you’re not careful, it’s very easy for an automotive dealership to take advantage of you.

So here is how it works.

If someone is looking for the value of a used vehicle, the first place they will generally go and look is at KBB, BlackBook, NADA, etc. This is fine if you’re trying to determine the value of a passenger van but not for a van conversion.

Conversion vans begin as passenger vans. GM, Ford, Dodge or whomever the manufacture of a particular passenger van will then send the vehicle to a conversion company. This is where all the added features like home theater systems, sleeping areas, and other amenities are added. The addition of these amenities is what vehicle price guides don’t take into account.

So what does this mean?

Well for starters, passenger van dealers who aren’t familiar with conversion vans will often shortcut customers who have such add-ons to their van, basing the value of the vehicle off what the passenger van itself is worth and not taking into account all the other things which have been added to it.

More than 99 percent of automotive dealers in the United States don’t even deal with conversion vans. Many of these dealers will actually contact us to gather information on what they should offer a customer attempting to sell a used conversion van.
