Even the non-technically minded can test the overall condition of the mechanical parts of the van. Don't be embarrassed to poke around.
There's a lot to remember - so why not take a checklist with you? If any of the above are not in order then you have grounds to query the van, consider other options or negotiate for a discount to put things right. These are all bargaining points that could save you money.

Do consider having the van professionally examined before you buy, either through a motoring association, private company or garage. They will examine the van and be able to give you more safety with your transaction
