Advice buying a Cat C/D van? Going to use to build a self build campervan?

Question by Matt: Advice buying a Cat C/D van? Going to use to build a self build campervan?
I would like to build a self build campervan, done loads of research and planning to move to a larger place with drive way etc. to do this. However, the van i have been looking at have been rather pricey, I would ideally like a high top lwb panel van, but even a well used one seems a bit more than I would like to spend.

I have however seen a few ABI Cat C/D vans going for a fraction of the price, and feel the repair work would be easy enough and keep the cost down dramatically. Just after some advice on buying a Cat C/D salvage van/vehicle?

Thanks for your help!

Forget it. Not only are you intending to buy a damaged vehicle, but also to change it’s type/purpose. Absolute minefield and you may have trouble getting it insured. A cat C/D repair may appear a good idea, but the only people I know who have ever done well out of them, are fellow professionals who can do the work themselves. Doing that kind of work on a driveway, however easy you think it may appear to be, is not an option.

What do you think about my business idea do you think it could work?

Question by Bill: What do you think about my business idea do you think it could work?
i am 23 and have an idea but not sure if i should just go for it. it is very simple the plan is to buy a van and take peoples scrap away for them at a reasonable price. The only thing i am unsure of is what kind of rules the scrapyard has and if they charge you for going there a lot. i know it would be a lot of work to just get it up and running but does it sound like it is worth a gamble ?
i live in the uk
