Static caravans are one of the most versatile and affordable options for those who want the freedom to enjoy the beautiful South West whenever they want, be it for an extended holiday or just a couple of days to unwind after a long week. Different caravan parks also have their unique appeals that can be as important to you as the caravan itself, such as the availability of activities for families or how close local attractions are.
However, just like with cars or houses, there comes a point with static caravans where you may start to think about an upgrade. But, how do you make sure you’re getting the best value for your old model? What about if you simply want to move caravan parks but your desired destination won’t allow you to move your current caravan there?
If you’re enjoying the many benefits of owning a static caravan but want a new model or just a fresh change, then a part exchange could be the way to go. Here at Westcountry Resorts, we can help you with that.
When you decide that you are going to upgrade by part exchanging your existing static caravan, it’s important to remember that you probably won’t get the full price that you initially paid for it. There are a number of factors that will determine the money you will get for your static caravan and these include: the age of the caravan, the size of the model, the condition it is in and whether the caravan park or dealership will be able to resell it.
Even if you don’t get the full retail price for your caravan, getting a new model will be significantly easier. Just like part exchanging a car, the value of your current static caravan is deducted from the price of your desired new model. If your static caravan is in good condition, we then sell on the caravan second hand, so everyone wins!
The first point of action should always be to talk to the park owners and discuss with them what is on the “wish list” for your next caravan. From there, they will guide you to the different available models that meet your requirements in terms of the size and necessary amenities.
Part exchanging is a much more convenient process than trying to sell the caravan elsewhere and then shopping for a new one. With this method, there also won’t be a long period between selling and buying so you will always have access to a holiday home.
