Vw Van Conversion

Buy a Van for your Campervan Conversion

After carrying out your research you should now know the vehicle which is most suitable to build a campervan conversion. You will now want to get the best van available for the budget you have set.   You should now set some limits with regards to the purchase strategy for your van:

£3,000 budget

less than 100 miles away

good service history

low mileage

Where to look

There are many options to find your perfect vehicle.  We like the search facility on the Autotrader website.  Auctions are another option but do pose a risk if you bid without viewing the vehicle.  There are also many specialist van dealers with good variety and lots of stock.

Autotrader Vans is the UK’s No 1 website to search for a van and has great search facilities that allow you to enter the criteria you want: mileage, price distance etc.
Ebay Motors is also a good means to search for a suitable vehicle. They have classified adverts as well as the typical EBay auction sale. However tempting, never bid on a vehicle that you have not seen.
Van Dealerships
Van Dealerships
Van dealerships may be an option and can also provide a guarantee and finance. You may have to pay V.A.T. on top of the purchase price.

Time to Find Your Van!

You will now have a shortlist of vans to go and view which is exciting but there are still a few more important things to consider and check when looking at potential vehicles.  You will need to check that you have insurance cover for the purpose of the test drive.  However, some dealers have their own insurance cover. Take a calm approach and do not be rushed, if so walk away.
