Do your research

Knowing the market is the only way to know if something is too good to be true. Once you’ve established what you need from your van/pick-up, and what your budget is, do plenty of looking around, both online and at dealerships, to see what’s available.

Vans of a similar type, age and mileage will fit into a similar price bracket, and if there’s something specific you’ve seen, a pricing site will give you value using only the registration. You can also use the pricing tool to get a snapshot of average values. Always aim to buy the best you can afford.
