Hello there, I am glad to hear that you are interested to buy my 2008 VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER 1.9TDI PD 84PS Van SWB with 46,000 miles.Although I am registered in the UK ,i recently moved to Cadiz , Spain (where my family is from) and the van is being shipped from here. I want to sell it in UK due to the fact that it\'s an UK version (right handed),it meets all UK standards.I bought this van from UK and It still has UK registration, so you won\'t have to pay any import and insurance fees.The van meets all United Kingdom guidelines so there will be no problem regarding UK Customs policy on receiving the van.The vehicle is in perfect condition, the bodywork is immaculate,no scratches, dents or hidden defects as well as the interior in excellent non-smoking condition , never been implied in any accident and it is as advertised. The van comes with log book, HPI cleared, No finance. You will get from me the keys and all documents to register the van in your name.If the vehicle is not how i described it, i will offer a full refund. It will be insured during transportation and will be delivered at your address in maximum 10 days.Final price is GBP 3,120 (the price includes shipping and insurance fees).The price is low because the van is right hand drive in a country where all vans are left hand drive so in the Spain is very difficult to drive this type of vehicle and nobody wants to buy it here in Spain .Instead of keeping it in garage (during this economical crisis), I decided to sell it to someone back in the UK for a really attractive price. I want to take this opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate,the deal will be manage by a very well company,in this way both buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Let me know if you need any further details or if you would like to buy my car. Aron Rankin ;
