Van-owners nationwide dread expressions like “write-off”, “beyond economical repair” and “scrap value only”. They all evoke pain and dread of having to replace the “beloved van”. We spoke to one UK business who aim to ease the pain through buying the vans nobody else wants at competitive prices.
We Buy Broken Vans operates across the entire UK mainland and has recently updated their website to increase the reach of their service and also to provide extra information to the visitor, including answering some of the most frequently asked questions. We spoke to Lee, Business Owner at We Buy Broken Vans about their broken van buying service.
When asked about who exactly the service was open to and designed around, Lee said,
"The service is open to members of the general public as well as motor traders. Operating on an appointment basis, we inspect the van at the same time of collection. We need proof of ID (such as Passport) and also the V5C, but documentation is kept to a minimum.
If the van is in the same condition "as described" by the owner in the online valuation, we instantly pay for the van by PayPal or bank transfer and that's it we take the van away."
The service centres around the online valuation tool, so we asked Lee to explain how this tool works, "The valuation tool couldn't be easier really. It's designed around the customer and to be as easy and as simplistic as possible to use. All the customer needs to do is enter their full details into the tool, criteria like registration #, mileage, condition, etc. and within 2-3 minutes a valuation is given. I can't emphasise enough it's crucial that the condition is accurately described. Our name is "We Buy Broken Vans", so we honestly expect faults and just ask people to honestly appraise their van with the tool."
Once, customers have their valuation, We Buy Broken Vans commit to guaranteeing the valuation for a full seven days. With the service, a wide-range of vans are bought from a massive variety of make and models. Although they buy any make of van, particular favourites remain, Ford, Nissan, Renault and Vauxhall models. The list is almost endless with the business buying many van types every week.
All vans experience faults but some make them beyond economical repair, this is particularly the case with older, low value vans. Major faults are not limited to but certainly include engine failure (possibly through lack of oil or cambelt failure), gearbox problems, MOT failure, steering and suspension problems, etc.
In many cases, vans are written off due to accidents. Insurance companies are notorious for low valuations though. We Buy Broken Vans frequently buy insurance category C, D, N, S and vans and offer far high valuations, whilst also offering much faster payment settlement too.
Many customers are confused about the exact reason why We Buy Broken Vans are so keen to buy the vans that “nobody else wants”. Lee commented, “It’s far from true to say nobody else wants the vans – there is an active market for these vans! We buy the vans because it’s our passion but primarily we buy them to either repair, break down for parts or sell for scrap/salvage value. We make a living from this business and love the environmental benefits we see every week in extending the lives of many vans. We also love to see the relief on many of our customer’s faces after we bought a van with faults from them!”
