We follow a strict Sales Procedure to ensure as much information as possible regarding the van for sale/being purchased, the Holiday Parks facilities and the Terms and Conditions associated with owning a Holiday Van in our Parks, is provided to the prospective purchaser.
Holiday Vans are the onsite caravans with aluminium annexes (the onsite cabins are owned by us and are for tourist holiday bookings only). There are currently 7 Holiday Vans at Halifax, 31 at Shoal Bay and 248 at Fingal Bay.
Sales are currently permitted at any time of year (with the exclusion of Peak / Holiday periods) following the existing sales process. [NB: Port Stephens Beachside Holiday Parks reserve the right to review this process at any time.]
All van owners wishing to sell their Holiday Van must submit an Application for Sale form to the Holiday Van Admin Officer, pay the associated fees, undergo an external Site Inspection (visual only), and a Compliance Report with any rectifications required will be supplied to the current van owners. The Holiday Vans are also Valued by an independent Valuer, with a Valuation report supplied which offers a guide to the Market Value only. These reports will be discussed at the interview.
Asking prices are generally higher than the Valuation. Price being asked and price ultimately paid is up to the seller and buyer to negotiate and is none of our concern. However, it is our suggestion that the purchase should be considered not as an investment, but as a lifestyle choice. When considering a purchase, you should ask for full disclosure (including but not limited to): what the Valuation is, if there are any Compliance items that will need rectification (who will be completing them) and what items are being sold with the van, for instance. It is your responsibility to ensure the van is safe to occupy. Please note the sale does not include the location/land/site.
Whilst we will supply a list of vans for sale (posted on the website), we do so only as a courtesy. Many vans up for sale are not included on this list by choice of the current van owner. We do not act as a vendor, therefore it is the responsibility of the van owners to advertise wherever they see fit. We suggest using the online sales platforms such as (but not limited to): Facebook Marketplace/Buy, Swap, Sell/Noticeboard, Gumtree, Trading Post and so forth. A copy of current list can be accessed by clicking on the following link: https://www.beachsideholidays.com.au/policies/holiday-van-owners. We do not keep a waitlist of interested parties, nor do we send out notifications when a van is listed for sale - it is up to the prospective buyers to search for new listings. Some current van owners may have buyers lined up already or by word of mouth do not have to advertise, and some may even decide to start advertising prior to them submitting the application requesting to sell their van. However, in all cases, the correct Sales process must be followed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: as part of the sales process all prospective purchasers must undergo an interview with Park management PRIOR to the sale going ahead. Feel free to negotiate and pay a holding deposit (if desired), however the sale must not be progressed past this point until after the interview and sale subsequently approved.
The interview is for us to have the opportunity to meet and chat with you face to face, and advise you of our policies, procedures, potential development plans, terms and conditions, etc., so that we give as much information as best possible, to ensure you are able to make an informed choice to purchase a van, but also to give you an opportunity to ask any questions of us that you may have.
An Occupancy Agreement would only be entered into (between the purchaser and the Park Manager) once all parties agree in writing to the sale, and all required and relevant information is supplied by the parties.
All Van Sales are subject to this process being followed and completed. Any sales found to have occurred circumventing this process will be considered as a Breach of the current owners Agreement, their contract would be terminated immediately with vacant possession of the site required.
We recommend you read as much of the information provided on this page as possible, including the Information for Prospective Buyers of a Holiday Van. Some of your questions may be answered, or maybe it will create more. The current Occupancy Agreement T’s & C’s, Standard Operating Procedures & Park Rules and Regulations really are a must read, however you are welcome to access and read any documents on this page: https://www.beachsideholidays.com.au/policies/holiday-van-owners.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email: email@example.com. Alternatively the Holiday Van Admin Officer can be reached by phone on 4988 0650 – Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4.30pm.
