Where Can You Sell a Used Van?

You can sell your used van at most car dealerships. You can also sell your van online through various websites, such as KBB.com, AutoTrader.com and Craigslist.org. An additional option is placing a classified ad in the local paper.

When selling your van, it's important to be prepared. Set a price for your van that reflects its year, make, model and condition. Resources, such as Kelley Blue Book, can be used to find the value of your vehicle.

Before selling your van, you should get all of the information and documents needed for an easy transaction, which includes the vehicle's records, title and the paperwork from its original sale.

If you are planning on purchasing a new vehicle, you can trade in your van at the same dealership and put the money you would earn from the sale towards your new car. This also reduces the sales tax on your new vehicle, and the sale can be completed more conveniently.

Selling a car yourself requires you to place an ad, and there are several websites that allow you to place ads up for free. In many instances, you can get more money for selling your car yourself than at a dealership and avoid dealing with the dealer overhead cost, but the process can last much longer.
