    Have heard of them but unable to say if they are by good, why don't you put an add in the classifieds on here it won't cost anything and it's easy enough to do. (Of course you may have already done that)

    from reading other forums and reviews.. I have learned they have selling fee .. around £2.5 k + a commission when sold.. 10% ..

    you also enter a 3 month contract to give them time to sell.. if you break the contract it will cost you £2.5k ...

    my view ..and I stress it is only my view.. it's a bit like 'we buy any car ' .. it should be easier, they do all the leg work.. but you will not get as much money..

    unless you are desperate to sell, personally I'd stick with doing it yourself.. . give it a few weeks on here then try eBay

    Last month my son tried to sell his mh with them, bloke came out spent most of the afternoon taking photos , went off, nothing happened, turns out the bloke left the company without doing anything about it, so he's still got it, as it happens he's changed his mind now so all for the best, but as far as motorhome depot are concerned just ignored him till he contacted them.

    they will get more money for it than you will, and then keep it for themselves. Pointless. Making money selling things they dont own .

    This is quite simple if you want to sell it and let them have any hassle from selling it and don't have much time it might be an option.
    They have made a business out of it and have to VAT on profit they make on your sale.
    They must be ok or they would out of business by now if they were rubbish.
    They must have a list of customers who they sell to and most likely will part ex as well.
    When i was looking for a van i did email them and the replied unlike some dealers and emailed more pictures of the van i injured about and that was almost three years ago.

    They only do what you can do yourself, the £2500 up front will pay for their advertising. Have YOU thought of spending up to £2500 on advertising, invest in a professional valet yourself, and Knocking 10% off the asking price (if you have to.) Try Here, and on e bay then then gumtree. Selling is a job in itself, you have to work at it, there is nothing they can do that you cant do yourself. Most of us overvalue our motorhomes, be realistic with your asking price. In the real world they will want money up front, if you are lucky, they will come back to you with an offer and still want their 10% on the balance These companies ask for money up front to do what you, yourself can do. They are in a no risk, no investment game.

    All parasites. Have no dog in the fight , but still want a cut.

    Like has been said , they don't do anything you cant do yourself, don't advertise anywhere you cant yourself, and at the time when I was looking to buy, they had pretty much monopolized the market for stuff I was interested in. There were at least 10 vans I would have considered buying that I didn't even bother with when I saw who was selling them. Had they been private sales I would have gone and viewed.

    And when I advertised mine, they were on to me in a flash.. I was mildly sarcastic, after asking what I was getting for my money , and getting the 'well we give the vehicle a full valet ', I replied with ' well I never thought of cleaning a vehicle properly before selling it' ..

    I have bought 3 houses , used estate agents once, and ended up threatening to take them to court for fraud after they refused to tell my vendor of my offer , and he rang me directly to find out why I wasn't interested to be told that I was told he had rejected my offer. As a result , neither of us paid a fee .

    Their sister company Mororhome Depot Limited was in administration last year and I think has now been wound up, they operate from the same address with the same directors, wouldn't give me much confidence in using them.
    They rang me when I was selling my last van, wanted to sell it for less than I had it listed and take 10% for the privilage, I sold it on eBay and put 5 grand more in my pocket than I would have got selling through them.

    We are using them,
    Its a fixed fee which is negotiable, no sale no fee, no % of price taken.
    A lot of opinions without facts.
    Same with the minimum term, it's negotiable.
    As long as you know what you want, how much you are prepared to pay, you are in control.
    Anyone who lacks any skills at all to speak up for themselves or are prone to being walked all over, possibly not suitable, but then again that would cause problems selling privately.

    I never said we liked them, just that we all (well the vast majority) accept using them. :)

    PS: Estate Agent horror stories would fill a whole forum on their own (and they probably do).

    The facts are on the Motorhome Depot site..





    Terms and Conditions

    These are the terms and conditions for the brokerage of your motorhome by The Broker. Please read these terms and conditions before entering the agreement. If you have any questions about this agreement please contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.


    Our Service

    The service offered by The Broker is to introduce potential buyers to you the seller of a motorhome, for which we will receive a commission on the successful completion of a sale transaction. We act purely as a third party and as broker between you (the seller) and the buyer (purchaser of your motorhome).

    This service is offered to you on a no sale no fee basis and The Broker will manage every aspect of your sale, including advise on current climate conditions and likelihood of a realistic achievable return; all associated marketing; arrange and accompany all viewings/demo’s, relay all offers for your consideration and completely manage all sales procedures from initial enquiries through to the payment.

    While we take care to ensure a professional process we accept no responsibility if the transaction (all aspects) fails in any way, nor do we accept any liabilities or claims associated with it.

    Valuation

    Before entering into the Brokerage Agreement you will receive a valuation of your motorhome. This valuation is provided on a “subject to contract” basis and is not legally binding. The Broker reserves the right to withdraw the valuation at any time without legal consequence and with no liability to the prospective Seller.

    Price Quoted

    The price quoted in the valuation will be in pounds sterling and will be inclusive of VAT.

    The price quoted in the valuation is given in good faith and relies on the information given by the Seller. If the information provided is inaccurate, false or misleading it will result in an inaccurate valuation which cannot be relied upon by the Seller.

    No liability whatsoever can be accepted by The Broker for an incorrect valuation which was given in good faith.


    Payment

    The Broker will make payment for the motorhome as soon as possible on completion of a sale. Once the buyer has paid the full purchase price of the Motorhome to MotorhomeDepot.com, the commission is deducted and the balance is paid to the seller.


    Validity

    This contract will remain in force for a minimum period of 90 days from the date of acceptance and will continue to be in force thereafter until either a sale is concluded or the agreement is cancelled.

    This agreement gives The Broker the exclusive rights to sell your motorhome for the term of the agreement. If any sale is agreed whilst this agreement is in force our commission becomes due and payable, regardless of whom the buyer is or whether The Broker introduced the buyer to you.


    Seller Warranties

    The Seller expressly warrants that all of the information supplied during the valuation process is accurate and true.

    The Seller warrants that the motorhome is not subject to undisclosed finance.

    The Seller warrants to the best of his/her knowledge and belief that the motorhome had not been an insurance right-off or involved in any other serious accident or incident that required substantial repairs.

    The Seller warrants that the mileage reading (where applicable) on the vehicle is true and accurate and that the odometer had not, to the best of his/her knowledge and belief been tampered with.

    The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed physical defects with the motorhome that a purchaser would want to be informed about.

    The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed title defects with the motorhome.

    The Seller warrants that he/she is the legal owner of the motorhome, has the right to transfer the full unencumbered legal title and full ownership of the motorhome to the buyer.

    The Seller warrants that no other person or entity has any claim to the motorhome.

    It is the responsibility of the Seller to disclose to any existing finance associated with the motorhome.

    The Broker may agree to settle off the existing finance in lieu of payment or part payment of the motorhome to the Seller as its absolute discretion, on behalf of the buyer.

    If the agreed sale price of the motorhome is lower than the settlement figure required to fully settle the outstanding finance the Seller must pay The Broker the difference between the settlement figure and the agreed sum in advance of The Broker settling off the outstanding balance on the finance.

    The Seller remains liable to the finance company in respect to the related finance at all times until the credit agreement has been legally terminated. The Broker does not accept any liability with respect to the related finance at any time or for any reason.

    The Broker will use its best endeavours to pay off the settlement sum on or before the due date. However, no liability is accepted if payment cannot be made by the due date.


    Collection and Delivery

    Where The Broker has agreed to collect or deliver the motorhome for the Seller a charge for this service will be agreed in advance.

    The Seller shall provide The Broker with all necessary documentation relating to the motorhome such as finance details, service record, invoices, V5 log book, road tax disc, spare keys, manuals etc. at the time of collection / delivery.


    Inspection

    The motorhome will be inspected by a representative of the Broker prior to completion of this Brokerage Agreement. A revised valuation may be offered where the motorhome does not comply with the information provided during the valuation process, where the condition is such that it has a substantial impact on the value of the motorhome or other factors not disclosed affect the valuation.


    Commission

    When a sale is agreed, you are agreeing to accept the net amount of the gross sale price less any commission due MotorhomeDepot.com and any other costs that have been incurred and agreed by you. Our commission takes the form of a buyer premium which will have already been deducted from the gross sale price when you are presented with offers. The amount you agree to accept when a sale is agreed is the amount you will receive without any deductions. Our commission becomes due and payable when a sale is agreed. For clarity, a sale is agreed when we have presented an offer to you, which you accept verbally or by any other means.



    Cancellation

    You may terminate this agreement at any time after the initial 90 day period by giving us 30 days notice of your intention to terminate the agreement in writing. If you terminate this agreement during the initial 90 day period or without providing us with 30 days notice, a cancellation fee will become due and payable equivalent to 5% of the original Advertised Price of the motorhome, subject to a maximum of £2,500.



    Consequential Losses

    The Broker, its directors, employees or other agents shall not be liable for direct or indirect inconsequential losses of any kind including loss of profits and other forms of expenses and compensation.


    Privacy Policy
    The Broker is committed to responsible data management and subscribe to the principals of the data protection legislation in the United Kingdom. We are committed to maintaining the privacy of our users and maintaining the security of any personal information received from you.


    Governing Law and Jurisdiction

    The governing law is English Law and the parties agree to submit to the full jurisdiction of the English courts.
