Posted by Static Trader on October 4, 2022

So, you’re looking to sell your caravan to Static Trader and wish to know what the next steps you need to take after we have agreed to buy your static caravan? Selling to Static Trader, who are a reputable caravan dealer, is the most safe and secure way to sell your caravan. You can be sure that you will get paid quickly for your caravan and receive support throughout the purchasing process.

Static Trader have listed 5 steps you will need to take to successfully sell your caravan to us once we have agreed a fair and honest price.

  1. Tell The Park Your Leaving

The first thing you will need to do is to inform your park that you are leaving. Some parks require owners to notify them that you are removing your caravan. This can vary in the length of notice period you will need to give them, so it is advisable to submit this notice along with any information regarding your intended removal as soon as possible. At this stage you will need to fill out a Customer Leaving Park form.

  1. Pay Any Outstanding Fees

Make sure all your utility bills are paid in full before you complete your sale with us. This will include any costs for the use of gas, electricity, water and the internet. You’ll also need to speak to your park about your pitch fee and whether any refunds are due for anything you’ve already paid.

  1. Caravan Disconnection and Pitch Removal

You will need to arrange with the park the disconnection and removal of your caravan from your allocated pitch, so the caravan is ready for us to collect. This process involves the disconnection of the supply of services to your caravan, i.e., gas, electric, water and sewerage.

This disconnection and removal service can only be carried out by the park and will come at a cost to you. The disconnection fee can vary dramatically depending on the park and can range from £300 upwards. This service and amount should be outlined in your agreement, so it is advisable to check with the park owner/manager.

  1. Caravan Collection

Once the caravan is ready for collection, we will provide you with a collection date. At Static Trader we own our own caravan transporters so we will always have the right vehicle to collect your caravan. We will check with the park that the caravan is in a loadable position to ensure all runs smoothly on the day of collection.

  1. Full Payment

Once we have confirmation the caravan is ready for collection our transportation team will arrive on site to collect the caravan. At this stage we will check over the caravan to see if it’s in the condition as described. Once we are satisfied with the caravan’s condition, we will then pay the remaining balance and take the caravan away.

Constant Support

Static Trader will be here to support you throughout the purchasing process to make sure the sale of your caravan goes smoothly, and you get paid as soon as possible. You will be allocated an Account Manager who will be on hand to help and guide you through these steps and assist you where possible.

Collection Caveat

Static Trader is a professional caravan dealer, and we have a streamline purchasing process and caravan collection service. However, we are not infallible and on occasion we meet unpredictable hurdles which can slow this process down. Potential pitfalls that occurred in the past are:

  • Lorry breakdowns
  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Excessive road traffic
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Employee illness

If these problems where to occur during our dealing with your caravan, we will keep you fully informed as to the holdup and do our best to remedy the situation as quickly as we can.
