    Default Best place to sell a 15 passenger van?

    Hello,

    We have a GMC Savana 3500 15 passenger van that we are looking to sell. It is a 1998 with only 55,000 miles. It is in pretty good shape and we just poured a good bit of money into it ($2500 replacing most of the AC system, well over $1000 replacing almost the entire brake system, 4 new Michelin LTX M/S2 tires which are about the best you can get and 4 new Firestone winter tires that we haven't even used yet). There is nothing that doesn't work well, but we purchased a Sienna 8 passenger van kind of spur of the moment last summer, so we don't need it anymore.

    We want to get a decent return on it (even though we are only looking to ask $8500 or so) so I want to find the best place to sell it. We have looked into Cars.com, Autotrader, Craigslist, eBay, etc., but wanted some opinions. Where have you had the best luck selling large vehicles?

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Good question. I've only ever traded in or sold to people I know. How about Craigslist?

    Craigslist has worked very well for us...We've sold an SUV, a Van, and a 5th wheel on there and none of them lasted more than a couple of days. Good Luck!

    Craigslist is a good place to start...make sure you post pics. Where are you located? We are looking to purchase a big van now that #7 is on the way.

    Craigslist and any sort of community paper are good options. Also word of mouth does work. We bought ours through someone who knew we were looking for a new vehicle.
