Posted on February 8, 2012 · Posted in Auto Electrical Repairs

A lot of people these days want to sell the caravan they currently have because they feel the time is right to get a new one. But failing to negotiate properly is probably the biggest reason why most of us won’t get the price we really could get for our caravans. The reality is that if you are a savvy seller you will be able to make a lot more money when selling your caravan. Here are my tips to help you ensure that you get a good price during this type of transaction.

  • You need to make sure that you really do research the second hand caravan market before you try to sell. If you want to find all the information you need, then the on and offline classified sections are where you should look. Find out what the selling price is for caravans that are the same year and make as your own one. Make sure you find many examples of how much people are charging so that you can get an idea about the minimum, maximum, and average sale price.
  • No matter what you are trying to sell, you should do all you can to make it look attractive. So you need to make sure that your caravan looks as new as it could. Do not ignore any corner or crevice; give the caravan a complete clean.
  • There may also be bad smells in the caravan and if this is the case, then you have to get rid of them. You might not even notice that your caravan has a certain smell. Do all you can to ensure that your caravan smells nice or you could find that buyers are put off.
  • Be positive but not sleazy when trying to sell your caravan. You have to make the buyer think that you really don’t want to sell at all.
