How does caravan part exchange work with Haven?
Static caravans are one of the most versatile and affordable options for those who want the freedom of having their own holiday home. However, just like with a car or a house, there may come a time as a static caravan owner when you may consider an upgrade. How do you make sure you’re getting the best value for your old model? This is where part exchange comes in.
We offer part exchange to all holiday homeowners. It’s a hassle-free way of using your existing caravan to offset the cost of your new. It takes the stress away from selling a caravan privately and allows you to exchange installed equipment and take your time to move possessions to your new holiday home. There’s a long list of benefits and positive reasons to part exchange your current caravan. So, how does a caravan part exchange work with Haven?
How does caravan part exchange work with Haven?
Whether you're looking for a caravan with more space, or in need of a change of decor or more modern features, part exchanging may well be the right path to take with your holiday home. At Haven we offer a comprehensive service, so you’ll be supported every step of the way. Like buying a static caravan outright with us, we’ll be alongside you every step of the way. Here’s how it works:
1. Choose your ideal holiday home
At Haven we offer a wide range of caravans and lodges to suit all tastes and budgets, made by some of the top manufacturers in the UK. You may wish to stay on your existing pitch or move to another of our 38 wonderful holiday parks dotted across the UK coast. You just need to speak to a member of our friendly sales team to find out which pitches are available.
2. Agree the cost
Having found your ideal new holiday home, we can then appraise your old caravan and compare the values of the two. You may also be able to use credit from letting your previous caravan to contribute to your down payment.
3. Pay in the manner that suits you
You could pay for your holiday home in full or take our Haven caravan finance that offers a highly competitive 3.64% fixed monthly repayment rate. If you already have finance in place, we can settle the existing loan and offer a new agreement.
4. Leave the paperwork up to us
We’ll settle the finance, move your holiday home and handle everything in between. This whole process should take no more than a few weeks. You’ll have access to your holiday home as soon as it arrives on park. We’ll also organise the sale of your old caravan; it will either be sold on park or to another park at home or abroad!
Why use a caravan part exchange?
As an owner you’ll be able to part exchange your caravan whenever you like. There are a number of reasons that people choose to opt for part exchange.
Some owners simply want to upgrade their caravan at the same park. This may be to make space for new family members, or to get a more favourable position on site that allows for uninterrupted sea views. Others might be looking to move to a new location altogether. One of the most exciting things about the idea of owning a holiday home is choosing the caravan park that suits you.
Many factors can influence this decision such as the availability of activities for families or how close local attractions are. Different parks have their own unique appeal that can be as vital to your overall experience of caravan owner life as the holiday home itself. Peoples’ needs change over time, so it’s only logical that their site preferences will change too.
Haven's part exchange system
Whatever your reason for wanting to exchange, there are several advantages to Haven’s part exchange system. Part exchanging a caravan is not just about the money, it’s about the convenience and the safety net of knowing you’re in trustworthy hands.
With this scheme, you can rest assured that there won’t be a long period between getting rid of your old caravan and receiving your new one. This means you won’t miss out on any potential holiday time with your loved ones. Remember, holiday home ownership is an investment into your leisure and well-being, so you are paying for the lifestyle and the lifelong memories that you’ll make with your family and friends.
Due to unusually high demand on a number of our parks, we are not currently able to offer part exchange. However, you can keep updated by checking our part exchange page.
