You probably know that in order to sell, you will need a certificate showing that your caravan is roadworthy. Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and all of Queensland must also follow these rules. Each safety certificate that is given for a caravan will be valid for up to 2 months or 2000 km, whichever comes first. This is for private sellers. If you are selling your caravan as a licensed motor dealer, you will have 3 months or 1000 km, whichever comes first. This should be adequate time for you to get the caravan ad listed and to make a deal before your certificate expires. If it is not, you can get a new safety certificate, but you will have to go through the inspection again.
You will typically find that getting a certificate declaring your caravan roadworthy on the Sunshine Coast is rather easy, especially if you are able to find a workshop that has the added benefits of mobile services. This way, the workshop inspector can come right to you and you won’t have to worry about getting your caravan into a workshop. Each of the inspections for a roadworthy certificate is affordable and when you choose mobile services, can be quite quick.
Getting a safety certificate for your caravan is imperative and by law, you cannot start the sale, or even advertise your caravan, without a safety certificate affixed to it. If you do, you can get a fine of up to $550. Don’t take that chance, contact a trusted workshop for a roadworthy certificate before you sell.
