Great News For Owners Of High Spec Vans
Business owners who run a high-spec van could be in for a nice surprise when it comes to selling their van on.
Residual values have been given a boost with optional extras like air-con, metallic paint and electric windows. There is great demand for high-specified vans to be converted into motor homes.
The interest in camper vans is growing at such a rate that drivers who do not require a van for their work and are not VAT registered are buying nicely spec used vans, which they can convert into camper vans, according to an online remarketing company.
The company says at the present there is a huge increase in demand for well-spec vans with air-con, reversing sensors ,rear tailgates and metallic paint, as they are the simplest to convert into campers, with the Volkswagen Transporter being far the most popular,
The welcome return of the camper van is seeing trade buyers purchasing vans specifically to sell to consumers as a base vehicle for conversion into camper vans. Demand for high-spec Transporter vans continues to rise, as do prices, despite the eventual owner not being able to recover the VAT on the van’s purchase
It makes sense to invest in optional extras like electric windows, air conditioning and metallic paint made sense for van drivers as these features were pushing up values when the vans reach the used market.
