One Caravan Owners Story – I can sell my static caravan privately:
I was offered a static caravan last week from an owner who had turned down an offer of £6,000 to buy his static caravan last summer. He was convinced that “I can sell my static caravan privately” for £10,000 or more.
At the end of the 2016 season he was still convinced that “I can sell my static caravan privately” and was just awaiting for that elusive buyer. So he paid his 2017 site fees, insurance and other costs totalling over £4,000.
Now a year on, he still has not sold his static caravan. Despite numerous trips to the coast to show the caravan to potential buyers, he still hasn’t found a buyer.
The sad fact is that the caravan is now worth less than it was last year. At UK Static Buyer we worked hard to help the owner. We offer him our best price of £5,500 to purchase his caravan, now a year older.
If the owner had sold his caravan last year and accepted the offer he would have walked away with £6,000. A year later, he has had no success with a private sale. After the costs to keep the caravan, trying to sell it, for the extra year, he’s left with only £1,500 net.
