So im looking through ebay and i see a lovely transorter T5. Â£4000, had my doubts from the start when all i see is for more info on this transaction pleas email me. what? no one ever says that on a genuine listing. my initial query.
to aronkin44 Hi Mate
With such a lovely looking van and it being fairly new, why is the asking price so low?
From Aron I am glad to hear that you are interested to buy my 2010 VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER 2.0 TDI 102PS Van with 27,800 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 4,120 (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.
Thank you! Aron
Thanks for your response.
Its a lovely van and i would be interested. However please understand that i am quite sceptical of the item situation being as it is in Spain and how difficult that can make a judgement of a vehicles appearence and worth. With regards to the van being shipped, would you be willing to travel with the van to meet at a location in the UK. This would make the transaction a lot more confortable for me as handing over Â£4000 without viewing the item prior to purchasing. Please let me know your thoughts on this proposal.
Then all this follows to my simple query.
I want to inform you the the van is in Spain and it will be shipped from here to UK.The shipper I will use will deliver the vehicle to your door, you don't have to pick it from the port. Shipping will take 10 days maximum.Due to the fact that i am located outside UK and we can not deal in person,i`ve contacted Google Wallet regarding this issue and they told me that they could offer to me a program that is created especially for international transactions that protects both of us. Regarding the transaction, you will send the funds to Google Wallet and they will keep the money until you receive the vehicle and test it.In this way both buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.Google Wallet will hold and insure your money until receipt of the van in good condition. That is how their service is working. As far as the seller concerns, i will be glad to know that Google Wallet is in possession of the funds during the delivery period. You will be given a 15 days inspection period from the day you receive the van at home( i will ship it to your address insured for full value to you ). If you decide to keep the van, then you will have to authorize Google Wallet to release the funds to me, and the transaction is complete.If the vehicle is not as described ( perfect interior,exterior,mechanical condition ), you will be able to send the vehicle back through the same shipping company ( return postage at my expense ), and ask Google Wallet to return the money to you. Though i am sure you will love the van and will not want to return it, it is good to know that you do have this second option available.

I bought this car from UK and it is still registered there so you don't have to pay any import taxes or any other fees.The car comes with log book, HPI cleared, No finance. You will get from me the keys, V5 document, manuals and all documents to register the car in your name.You don't have to worry about anything.
If you want to check the car here are the reg details:
Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) EJ60YLG VIN (chassis number) WV1ZZZ7HZBH066191 Engine number CAA 127592 Road Tax 08/2014
If you wish to purchase it and agree to these terms i will need you to provide your full name and address. I will then notify Google Wallet and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
I will be waiting for your reply as soon as possible
Thank you in advance!
