    I have seen people ask about the trade in value of their vans and if there was a guide price , only to be told no and best way to get an idea about prices was see what was selling at the time and what they had sold for on ebay .

    last night while out i was given for a couple of day a glass's price guide book for motorhomes and caravans that the trade use , it contains all the vans makes apart from rv's, it list trade value, mileage ,retail value and cost new, any body else seen this book , its dated august 2012

    If I send over details of my van could you give me a price please? Brownhills recently gave me a quote that was so ridiculously low that it was an insult!
    Cheers.

    Yes ive seen it, it is a trade publication only available to genuine traders and very expensive to subscribe to.
    It is what it says it is and that is a Guide, unless you can see the vehicle in its flesh it will still be a best guess price, adjustments are made for condition inside and out also milage They are available for cars, boats planes you name it

    Having been in the trade(Light commercial Vehicles) and subscribing to Glasses and Blacks Guide on a yearly basis ,as already said very expensive.
    some would say the traders Bible ,but time and time again proved wrong by both the purchase price and final sale price, but they are only guides.
    Older vehicles not in the guides and ye still command a very good price, due to what they are.
    Unfortunately your new vans loose, possibly thousands the moment you drive it away from dealers showroom, and how many have bought from
    Mr Nice :thumb:and then come up against the Mr Angry :Angry:when things go wrong .My observation only.:Wink:

    A very good friend who was a car dealer most of his working life used to say there are hundreds of new cars but only one second hand....supply and demand controls value.....that and condition

    I think the motor trade price guides tread on very thin ice from a legal standpoint.

    Shouldn't market value be dictated by demand, not 'price fixing'?:Eeek:
