RV SCAMS – WHAT SELLERS NEED TO KNOW
As the demand of RV has increased, so have the number of scams. What’s more, fake sellers have become very cautious while dealing with buyers. They have kept a note of the existing market trends and often target young and enthusiastic travelers who recently got a taste of RV living. Luring them with a good deal is easy because they want to buy the latest RVs at the cheapest price. If you are planning to sell your RV, it is essential for you to learn about the scams. These will give you an idea of what you should not do to lose the confidence of the buyers.
Most of the scammers pressurize the buyers during the sales pitch and the negotiation process. They keep on telling about other interested customers who are ready to purchase at the given price. You must refrain from using this tactic. If the buyer is interested, he will go ahead with the deal. Pressing him will put up a bad image of yours in the market, which may further delay the selling process.
Scammers usually attract buyers by promising them a good rebate. But once the deal is done, the buyers are informed that the rebates are no more applicable. In some cases, the scammers deny the rebate completely. So, if you are planning to sell your RV at a discounted rate, make sure you give them the promised price.
Requesting Unnecessary Information
There are many fake dealers, who ask unnecessary information from the buyers. For instance, they may ask a copy of the driver’s license, which is basically against the law. So it is recommended, when you are selling your RV try not to delve into confidential details that have no role in the deal. Rather, share with your buyer a vehicle history report, to earn his trust.
Thanks to these scammers, dealing with buyers has become a really tough job. So, it is better to be aware of these fake sellers and take careful steps to gain trust of the interested buyer.
