At, we really do buy any van, even those that you think are ready to be scrapped or sent to the salvage yard. If you sell to us, you may be wondering what will happen to it after the transaction is complete. After the money is in your bank, the van will be sent to auction where it could eventually be bought by a scrap metal dealer. However, whilst you may think your van is ready to be scrapped, somebody else may give it a new lease of life with some TLC and get it back on the road.

Deciding that you want to scrap your van may happen for a number of reasons. Some of the common reasons may be that repairs are uneconomical, you’re continuously having problems or you’re ready to upgrade to a newer vehicle. If you’re buying a newer van, having the cash in your bank can put you in a strong position as a buyer.

Yes, we also buy motorhomes and campervans. If you’re looking to sell, you will need to get a manual valuation by sending the following details via email to

  • Your registration plate
  • Make, model and specification
  • Transmission
  • Mileage
  • Service history
  • Number of previous owners
  • Any damage
  • Detailed photos of the motorhome or campervan

The scrap value of your van will depend on a number of factors including the seasonality, current demand for scrap metal and the salvageable parts. Scrap dealers will generally pay more for a larger van than a smaller van due to there being more scrap metal. The location of the buyer can also affect the price you receive due to increased overheads if they’re further away from a port.
