The Better Way To Sell

We are here to help you make a sale! We’ve built VanlifeTrader to offer a curated marketing & sales process for your Vanlife vehicles, parts or services. Our platform is feature rich and user friendly, and we are constantly at work developing better systems to help you convert interest into dollars! Have a look below at some of our features and user experience.

Listings: Basic, Plus, Featured & Promoted

There are three types of listing packages: Basic, Basic Plus and Featured.  The primary difference between each type is the level of social media marketing that is included for your listing.

All Listings can also be promoted (Boosted) for 3days ($10), 5days ($20) or 7days ($25). All promoted listings are given top level listing priority for 3, 5, or 7days and listed above Featured and Basic listings in the VanlifeTrader search results and Homepage. Pretty Rad!

An additional benefit to your BOOST for any listing using the Top Level Listing package ($49.99) is that your Promoted listings are Boosted on Social Media (we pay to advertise them). (Unfortunately we cannot offer this option without an Instagram Post of your listing, which comes with the top package).

Frequently asked Questions

What is the success rate for selling vehicles?

Success rate is a tough one, because some sellers price their vehicles "above market" so it takes a while, and others price fairly and they go quickly, while others never let us know it has sold... but we often get messages of vans selling within a week of posting it, or even the same day... but the average seems to be about 2-6 months if prices are at the mid to upper end of the range, and about 4-8 weeks if priced on the mid to lower end...

What's the best way to find a pro builder near us?

We love helping you find the perfect services for all your Vanlife needs. Searches can be done regionally, such as "show me builders in Los Angeles" or you can do a proximity search, by entering your location and searching for services near you, and you can change the range (miles) of that search. We are a global directory that is searchable 1 mile at a time. This is true for vehicles and parts as well.

Can I get a refund?

We do not refund listings. Once you post the transaction is completed. That being said, we are here to help you, so please contact us and we can see how to help. If your listing package expires before you have a chance to sell your vehicle, you can renew the listing without having to rebuild it, and you can re-list with any package.

How long does it take to post?

On average, if you have all your information and photos, it takes about 5mins to post and you are live and viewable. Posts will be reviewed by our team (Usually within a day) to see if there is anything out of whack. You can edit your listing at anytime. Make sure to review your post once it is live to catch any mistakes you might have made. Good Luck!

Will you help me figure out the value of my vehicle?

Putting a value or price on your vehicle can be tough. We cannot, for liability reasons, help you do that. Our best advice, however, is to search our listings and other websites for comparable vehicles to get a feel for market value. You might also consider how much you bought it for, how much you put into it, and how much you've used it. Lastly your price will probably be dependent on how fast you need to sell. Now put all those factors together, and you'll find your price. Know that you can always change it after you publish your listing, as often as you want.

Spread the Love

We love love, and love loving on others. We believe that you matter, your were made for a purpose and that your purpose is awesome. Vanlife and social media can be all about that YOLO & FOMO... but we say Do It Your Way! You have an impact to make on this world by being you! Focus on loving your neighbors as yourself and love well.
