I’m getting an 18 plate vw transporter for 16.5k
Nothing wrong with it. Just a lucky find.
 
Try one of those webuyanyCan.com sites if can't sell it. You'll get less for it but it will be quicker to sell and less hassle

Yeh. Been on We Buy Any Van, but they already gave me a lesser offer without looking at it.
In no big rush. Need to get my corona Bounce Back Loan sorted first but rbs are dragging their heels.

Anyone else got one? I applied last Tuesday.

Hadn’t thought of eBay... reserve at 8k, see how high it can go?

Depends how you looking at it and how much luck will you get with potential buyers.
You need to weight your time off work or at weekends to show them the van and test drive it fees from fleebay etc against any potential price different they will offer. If time is critical and you can swallow say 500 quid then way not.

Great. I’m looking at ideas for shelving out the back. It’s ply lined, nice square boxing over the wheel arches. Metal bulkhead.
Will need to get roof bars for it for my pipe tube
Nice, I’m in a Transit Custom now. Have it all racked with different boxes for all my most used items etc.

I have a Transporter as well brilliant vans easy to drive and quite quick even when loaded.

Would say the metal bulkhead is a real heat sponge in the winter and needs some sort of insulation.

You got sliding doors on both sides? @David Prosser

Ah. The one I’m getting is single slider on passenger side, and barn doors at back.

if I build a lot of shelving with ply, it’s going to add a lot of weight to the back. Might even get my stepladders to fit in upright

you can get a neat device fitted for putting your steps inside on the roof.

I’m 6’1.... I’d bang my head off the steps up there.

I’ve got a little set for domestic. Cheap 3 way that can open up on a staircase.
When I bought my first berlingo, I had to cut the top rung off to make them fit neatly. (Didn’t want them on the roof)

What is the device called.
Interior ladder rack, you can get them from vanrackingsolutions or similar from
jet-rack.

I did mine with Santander...in the account in about 48 hours from applying for it. Couple of trade mates the same.
Another trade mate with no previous business account has pretty much given up hope of getting a BBL.

I just gave it a clean today, but I got to take it out on jobs tomorrow again

as for the bbl, I don’t have a business account, so I had to open a feed in account for the loan to be paid into. This is the one that’s taking time
Is It +VAT?

Managed to get through to rbs to ask about my loan:
28 working days just to open the feeder account. Now they know it’s for a BBL then they’ll push it on to 14-15 working days. (It’s been 9 now already)
Then another 4 to 5 working days to process the bbl.

my wife is now suggesting we take out the full 50k. Use some for the van and rest to use as a deposit on a little flat to do up and sell.
this is the same woman that swore never to get into property again after our last attempt.

A woman changing her mind ???
Yeah. What a surprise.
A question for our ladies on the tools, SC and Julie et al....
When you’re buying tools, do you go to one screwdriver shop, have a look, then spend 5 hours walking round every other screwdriver shop, only to return to the first one and buy what you saw 5 hours ago?

;)

Update.

I sold my van back to the dealer i bought it from. Not what i wanted, but i hadn't had a serious offer from public marketplace.
Been today and picked up the VW Transporter. Same place i met a couple of hundred angry wasps... so that's twice i got stung today... Boom Boom!

Its ply lined, floor and walls. with plastic bulkhead between cab and rear space. Plastic trim on roof, so not possible to fix anything like a stepladder bracket to the inside of the roof.
Will just have to build a shelving unit ad hoc as i need it.

Looking online for a roof bar system just now. Ebay has a 2 or 3 bar product from "Ultibar" which looks ok. Has the slot along the top to fix down my pipe tube.
