Online auctions are usually a bargain as even the highest bid is still lower than the price you would have to pay for cheap vans for sale offered by the dealers.
Undoubtedly, some of cheap vans for sale you look for are not that pricey, simply because they have been pre-owned. Purchasing second hand vehicles involves some risk, so if you don’t want to end up buying a lemon, you should consider a few tips that follow. Once you have won the auction for one of cheap vans for sale, ask the seller for the test drive. Only if you lay your hands on the vehicle and give it a closer look can you be sure that you know exactly what you paid for. You can check for yourself if the van is comfortable and manageable, if the engine makes any noises or if there are any power issues, leaks or traces of fresh paint that may be a cover up for the rusty patches. Also, you may wish to ask the seller for the maintenance record of the vehicle you have just bought. Owing to this, you will be able to track all the repairs that have been done and what they involved, all the replacements that were made and the brands of the spare parts.
