You choose the motorhome, we inspect it for you

We can inspect a campervan on your behalf

If you have already found a vehicle in France but are not in a position to inspect it yourself, we can inspect it and negotiate the purchase with the seller on your behalf.

We will inspect any vehicle for you and give you a totally impartial report on it’s condition and negotiate the purchase for a fixed fee (plus any travelling expenses and time).  If we do this for you, you will also have access to our ownership solution for non EU residents so you can legally buy, register and insure your vehicle.

If you are embarking on a search and would like us to inspect a motorhome on your behalf, starting your search in our immediate area is good idea to avoid incurring unnecessary travel expenses.

This is how our vehicle inspection service works in practice:

  • You choose the vehicle/s you would like us to inspect
  • We contact the vehicle seller/s to get full details of the vehicle
  • Once we are sure of the suitability, we will make arrangements to visit and inspect the vehicle and provide a report on all aspects of the vehicle for you to consider. At this stage, you should be ready to make a quick decision because there is always the risk that another buyer will come along if we do not act immediately
  • If everything is in order and you are happy to proceed with the purchase, we make an agreement to buy the vehicle with the seller so you can make arrangements for money to be transferred directly to them
  • As soon as practicable after the money has been paid, we arrange to collect the vehicle and deliver it to our depot ready for you to collect at a later date.

If you choose this route to ownership of a second-hand vehicle we strongly recommend buying from a reputable motorhome dealer rather than a private individual to ensure you have warranties to fall back on in the event of mechanical or other failure. Failing that, if you buy directly from a private seller, we would suggest buying a vehicle that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty to give you protection from unseen expense.

Purchasing from a private individual is also not without risk at the payment stage.  A private seller will only accept a bank cheque or bank transfer in payment and as a foreigner you are unlikely to be able to be able to obtain a bank cheque.  This leaves a transfer as the only means of payment which naturally the seller will insist arrives in their bank account before they will hand over the vehicle.
