Selling UK reg campervan in Spain

Postby monche » Sat Feb 15, 2020 4:21 pm

I have a UK registered 1993 VW campervan which, given that I have been living in Malaga for nearly a year, I am not allowed to drive it with its UK reg. Because of its age, it is almost impossible for me to register it as a Spanish vehicle. Is there someone in southern Spain who would buy it from me? I believe I read here that there are dealers who buy UK vehicles. Any idea? Also, I guess a UK resident going back to UK may be interested in it. Can anyone advise me where to advertise it?

Muchas gracias

Try advertising it on facebook. I had a good response to selling my RHD Merc on there. But if you've been living in it for a year I'm guessing that it doesn't have an MOT, in which case nobody can legally drive it anywhere.

No MOT. Scrap it. It's illegal. Or use it for visitors!

We have bought and sold a car using this company. I think they have transporter service so no MOT wouldn’t be a problem

If the vehicle has EMT, any dealer in Gibraltar will buy, However if the vehicle hasn't EMT an afroed only the scrappy yards would take from you
