How to Sell a Motorhome – The Ultimate Guide
3 minutes well spent
After purchasing a motorhome, you’re unlikely to keep the same one forever. At some point you’ll probably consider selling it. This may be to downsize, upgrade or get a newer model – the list of reasons goes on.
When it comes to selling a motorhome, the first port of call for many is to sell privately online. However, in another blog (Reasons not to sell your motorhome privately) we discussed the downsides and risks associated with private sales. Advertising fees, delays in payment and the risks posed by scammers are really not worth the hassle – particularly when selling with a dealership is this easy:
We Buy Motorhomes
If you’re wanting a quick sale, look no further. At Don Amott we buy any motorhome, whatever size, make or model. Simply contact us using our enquiry form and let us know a few details about your motorhome, including registration number, year of manufacture and current mileage and our team will sort out your free valuation.
Following this, you can arrange for us to come and have a look at your motorhome in person to get an accurate idea of what condition it’s in.
If you’re then happy to sell via our ‘We Buy’ scheme, we offer a collection service, so there’s no need for you to worry about finding the time to drop it off to us! If you are not local to us, don’t worry either – we offer nationwide collection. After we receive your motorhome, you will be paid immediately with the full amount that we offered you for your vehicle. Guaranteeing you a competitive price is really important to us, so rest assured that our offers are always fair.
Our Brokerage Scheme
Our second scheme is also a great way to get an old vehicle off your hands. Whilst our ‘We Buy’ scheme offers you quick cash for your motorhome, our brokerage scheme works in the same way as selling your home via an estate agent or selling something on eBay (but without the uncertainty and potential time wasting). Once your motorhome reaches our forecourt we bring prospective buyers, taking the responsibility and stress off your shoulders. Our brokerage service is a great option because:
- We put in all the hard work to advertise your motorhome, creating a broad market to find the right buyer.
- There are no upfront costs – we only take a percentage fee after a sale is completed.
- We handle all enquiries, so no need to worry about times wasters or people arriving at your personal or private address to view your motorhome.
- With the potential to attract multiple buyers with our advertising, you can expect to be offered more for your motorhome than you would with our We Buy scheme (however We Buy is better an immediate sale is your requirement).
- Our brokers are great at what they do, offering a professional service at all times, offering regular updates on the sales process.
If you’re looking to continue on your motorhoming journey, and simply want a different, perhaps newer, vehicle then our part exchange service is a great option. Whilst brokerage schemes can take a little time, meaning that there may come a period when you don’t have a motorhome at all, doing a part exchange allows you to purchase a new one quickly. If the motorhome you’re exchanging isn’t in the best condition, you can bring it to us for a value assessment. Alternatively, you can give us a call with your service history and specification to hand.
In the meantime, why not take a look at our range of new motorhomes and get started on your part exchange journey!
