Buying a uk registered van to transport possessions

Hi

I was considering buying a small van in the uk to bring my stuff over and then just selling it to someone who was returning to the Uk. Wouldnít need to be expensive as it just needs to survive a long trip there and back.

Sound like a good idea?

Anyone want to buy an inexpensive uk van to take their stuff back and then sell it on when they get back?

Re: Buying a uk registered van to transport possessions

If you don't find a buyer immediately, you'll stuck with a van designed for driving on t'other side of the road, the search for parking, the costs thereof at Swiss prices, the questions of registration and insurance, etc.

If you enjoy the road trip, it might be a better bet to drive the van back again straight away and sell it in the UK.

Or if it's just about the transport, perhaps the user confloozed could help you. I've read that he sometimes transports goods, for a fee, between the UK and Switzerland.

I can keep it off-road for a month where Iím going, but itís the ultimate car sharing system, maybe someoneís interested here.
