My Van Won’t Start: What Should I Do?

Arguably the most dreaded noise to ever hear on a Monday morning. Your key goes into the ignition, but your van won’t start!

We know the feeling. Without your van working, you’ll no doubt just be thinking about the endless bills of what it may cost to fix.

But don’t fear! Your van breaking down may not have to be as expensive as you think. Find out more below:

Decide On the Problem

The first thing you should do if your van won’t start is to try and find out the reason why. It could be something really simple, or it may need the professional eye of a mechanic to look over it.

Before having it towed to your local garage, do your research. At Sell My Broken Van, we know loads about vans and the common problems if your van won’t start.

Take a look at our common faults’ pages on our website for more information on what you should look and listen out for depending on the make and model of your vehicle.

Get an Instant Valuation for Your Broken Van

Once you have an idea of what’s wrong with your van, now is the time to decide on whether to pay for it to be repaired or to sell it on.
