Sell My Static Caravan

Sell my static caravan

The day has arrived when you have thought.. “I need to Sell my static caravan”. Like most people, this would have been the last thing you thought of when you first purchased. There are many things you now need to consider and a general process which you need to take. Each park has selling rules and park policy’s so we advise to always check with the park operator/owner to discuss their options.

Here we will give you a general guide as to the usual steps to take.

Make an appointment to discuss with the park office

When you contact your holiday park office and tell them you want to “Sell my static caravan”, they will have a general process for you to adhere to and they may ask you to fill out a private sale agreement form. This is so they have a record that you would like to sell.

It will usually not be a priority or obligation for the park to sell your caravan for you as can be assumed by many caravan owners. It is your asset so you will be expected to take responsibility just like selling your car.

The park may be able to offer you useful selling advice and even take it on the books for you.

Will the company buy my caravan back?

You may be wondering “Can I Sell my static caravan back to the company you bought from? There is every possibility the park will buy your caravan back however it could be a lower prices than you expect. The offer they give you will depend on demand and will be close to a ‘trade valuation’.

Please bear in mind that caravans and lodges are depreciating assets most of the time and rarely hold their value. The park is in business so will be hoping to buy from you at a good price so they are able to sell on and make a profit.

How much should I Sell my static caravan for?

As the owner of the static caravan, you would determine the final selling price. Your park operators  may be able to give you some indication of the selling price as they are dealing with buyers and sellers daily. The selling price should be a fair price which is in line with other recently sold static caravans.

Factors that can affect selling prices include:

Supply and demand
  • How well are the static caravans selling on park and are there many empty plots available?
  • How many years has your static caravan got left on pitch licence? This will be a big factor to the buyer.
  • How much are similar models selling for? A private sale will usually sell for less than company models as they do not come with the same benefits i.e. extra warranty, consumer protection.
  • The price you paid. How much did you pay and how long have you owned. A simple equation is to deduct £1000 per year for depreciation.

Take all these factors in and come up with a price you think your static caravan will sell for.

Can I put a sales notice up in my static caravan?

Most parks are likely to have a policy where you are not able to put a ‘for sale’ sign up in your static caravan. This is for the good of the park. A park with too many ‘for sale’ signs does not look good to potential buyers. Check with your office as they may let you put one of their branded ‘for sale’ signs in the window as a compromise. Work with the park and together you should be able to achieve a private sale which suits all parties.

How to prepare my static caravan to sell?

Getting the ‘show-home’ look can be challenging especially if you are planning to continue to use your static caravan. Clear out as much clutter as you can and make the place as neutral as possible. Bear in mind that your tastes will not be the same as a potential buyers. Buyers need to imagine themselves being in, and owning your static caravan.  Keep the place as clean as possible and welcoming at all times. When selling your caravan it is always best to open the curtains wide, letting in the natural light.  Perhaps even open the windows as this will all help give your holiday home a welcoming natural ‘buy me’ vibe. Ensure the outside of your holiday home is clear and welcoming.

Brilliant. You have a YES! The transaction has to go through the park office. Between you and the buyer, you will agree a date they will take possession of the holiday home.

Who completes the paperwork

The park operators will ensure the buyers are fully aware of park rules and run through all the relevant paperwork. Once this is all complete and they have paid the balance, the last task is for you to remove all personal items from the static caravan ready for the new owners to move in.

What happens now?
