Hi I posted a month ago asking for help pricing my husbands T5. As a result of your advice it's now had its MOT and a valet clean and Ive got a few photos. We bought it in 2012 from an electrician who had 11k miles on it - now its got 52.5K so extremely low milage. Basically my husband became ill and can no longer drive but we kept it to ferry University kids back and forth - bikes etc. But now its sitting SORN and much as I cannot imagine 'not having a van' its just wasted and depreciating doing nothing. So how to sell? 2009 panel T5 1.9 engine. TDi 52,000 miles. 2 owners. Well looked after. New MOT. Good condition for the age. Would probably be brilliant for a conversion. Anyway I've been looking at prices and they vary tremendously and I can't make out if people are just 'having a laugh' with their wild estimates. I would really appreciate any direction in how to sell and what should I be asking.

Looks a nice honest van , i'm sure it'll get snapped up .
As to prices theyre stupid at the minute because of increased demand and like you say vary massively.
If i had to hazard a guess ...somewhere around 9k maybe ?
What do the rest of you guys think ?

I would advertise on Gumtree, ads are free and no commission to pay. Beware of anyone who rings up and starts off by asking what is the lowest you will take. I sold a couple of campers and anyone who did that was invariably a pain in the a**e and out to chisel you.

Doesnt matter what you originally paid for it , its not relevant to todays market.
Theres a white 59 plate almost identical to yours but with double the mileage on at 8.5k . Whether it actually sells at that ...who knows 🤷‍♂️.
'Watch' a few on ebay and see what they fetch .

Also be very carefull of anybody wanting a test drive. Have another person with you, preferably a male, family or good friend for any viewers. Stick to your price and do not be intimidated by anyone, they are out there, but so are genuine honest people.
Good luck

First, it wont be depreciating much! - if you take a couple of months to sell it. So unless you really need to shift for space reasons or £££, I suggest ask at the high end of prices you see for similar T5s (£11,000 ish?), emphasize the low mileage, 2 owners, private not commercial, & dont be bargained down by more than a few hundred quid. Also, good advice here about having someone with you when it's being viewed.
