Four Fantastic Alternatives to AutoTrader

Buying and selling vans is something that happens on a pretty regular basis when you’re in the trade. There’s a lot of back and forth between vans, buying ones that are bigger or smaller depending on your needs that year and changing up whenever you reach a certain mileage.

While everyone in the industry has heard of - and probably used - Autotrader, is this really the best way to sell and buy vans? Here are some clever alternatives to ensure you’re getting the best price for your vans:


It may be better known for selling furniture and bicycles but, believe it or not, Gumtree is an excellent way to list your vehicle for sale for free! You can pay for the advert to have a better position and attract more attention, but this often isn’t necessary. Because there’s no fee to pay and nobody buys directly through the website, this provides a safe and secure platform to advertise and sell your van.


Quick sales are simple as 1,2,3 with eBay, but there are a couple of issues that you may come up against - like not meeting your reserve, having to pay PayPal fees and coming up against a huge amount of similar competition. This platform has come a long way in recent years however, and is quickly becoming one of the most frequently searched places for used vehicles.


Extremely similar to Autotrader in almost every way. You get the same type of search, similar looking results but, unlike the other car selling giant, you can list your vehicle for 12 weeks free of charge. This is a huge bonus to anyone who hates paying listing fees, although you may still be required to pay a percentage of the final sale price.

AA Cars

The AA may be well known for their breakdown service, but what you may not know is that they operate vcars.co.uk that provides you with a huge range of AA approved used vehicles. This is something that no other website provides, ensuring that you won’t accidentally buy an insurance write-off or a stolen vehicle.
