Creating an attention-grabbing listing for your van may seem daunting, but following these three simple steps can help your vehicle receive the recognition it deserves!

Craft an Engaging Description:

A stellar description of your rig complements the technical specifications. Avoid exaggeration and instead focus on what makes your van unique. Highlight special upgrades, features, condition, style, and capabilities. Be sure to mention anything that sets it apart from others. A distinctive and accurate description helps potential buyers envision themselves enjoying your vehicle. If you experience writer’s block, try discussing your van with a friend and describe what initially attracted you to it. Reflect on the elements and features you love most and consider their response to your description. When creating a listing title, refer back to the unique features you identified earlier and incorporate one or two of them. These keywords will help connect potential buyers with your van in search results.

Utilize High-Quality Photos:

The photos of your vehicle can significantly impact your listing’s success. Make your photos stand out with quality and beauty. Here are five quick tips for capturing appealing photos:

  • Ensure your van is clean and tidy.
  • Take photos in landscape orientation (sideways).
  • Utilize good lighting, such as capturing images just after sunrise or before sunset.
  • Highlight important details that make your van unique.
  • Opt for wide shots to provide a comprehensive view, using the wide-angle feature on your smartphone or a wide-angle lens for your camera.

Price Thoughtfully:

Determining the value of your vehicle can be challenging. While we can’t provide an appraisal, consider using a third-party appraiser like Benchmark for assistance. If you prefer to set your own price, consider the following:

  • Search other listings on platforms like VanlifeTrader to gauge market value.
  • Evaluate the initial purchase price, the amount invested in upgrades, and the extent of use.
  • Determine how quickly you want to sell your van, as pricing can influence the speed of finding a buyer. By considering these factors, you can establish a suitable price. Remember that you can always modify it after publishing your listing as often as you desire.


By following these steps, you can create a captivating listing that effectively showcases your van, increasing the chances of attracting interested buyers.
