Deadline looms for eBay van conversion awards

There are just two weeks left for van owners to enter eBay’s Van Conversion of the Year Awards, which offer a £10,000 first prize.

The awards, which will feature expert judges including architect and TV-presenter, George Clarke, are searching for the most beautifully executed, space efficient and clever Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) conversions in the UK.

Category winners will each receive £250 worth of eBay items while the Overall Van Conversion of the year winner will receive a £10,000 cash prize.

Manish Goenka, eBay UK Car Parts & Accessories Category Lead, said: “At eBay, we love celebrating the people who do it themselves, whether it’s changing a headlight bulb or restoring an entire vehicle. We launched this competition to find the best van conversions in the UK and to celebrate the DIYers who take such pride in their fit-outs.”

Clarke added: “It’s an honour to be asked by eBay to be part of the judging panel and I am excited to see the entries roll in. Depending on the original van, it can be a really tough task to transform the vehicle; not only do you want it to look stylish, but you need it to be practical and suitable for its chosen use.”

Entries close on 2 October.
