What do I need to have ready on the day of sale?

On the day your van is due to be collected, you’ll need to have the following items to hand:

If you’re the registered keeper:

  • V5C vehicle registration document (the logbook)
  • MOT certificate
  • All the spare keys for the van
  • Photo ID
  • Proof of address (either a utility bill, bank statement, or council tax statement – this needs to match the address on the V5C document)
  • Authority from your finance company, including a letter from the company confirming the final settlement figure if there’s finance outstanding
  • Service record book, handbook, locking wheel nuts, radio and key codes if you have them
  • Your UK bank details
  • Fuel – it doesn’t need to be a full tank, but please make sure that the fuel light isn’t on

If you’re not the registered keeper of the vehicle:

  • The bank details and photo ID of the registered keeper plus:
  • All the above items
  • Written authorisation from the registered keeper that you’re able to sell the car
