Benefits of Used Vans

Used vans are a great choice because they are much more cost-efficient. You will be able to get a better model than you otherwise would have been able to afford if you opted for a new vehicle.

Moreover, you need to consider how quickly vans can depreciate in value, and this is another reason why it makes a lot of sense to go down the used vehicle route instead.

Finding a great van

However, there are a lot of different factors that you need to consider when looking for a used van. You need to make sure that the model you choose is economic and makes sense for you.

How to choose a Used Van

To ensure that you choose the right used van you need to think about how, where, when and who is going to be using the van:

  • Will you be doing long motorway journeys or lots of short distances?
  • Will you be driving in built-up areas with low emissions zones?
  • How many passengers do you need to be able to carry?
  • What payload will the van need to be capable of carrying?
  • Think ahead – will your business have grown in a year – and if so will the van choose be able to accommodate that growth?
  • Will you want to use it for your family and friends at evenings and weekends?
  • Does your van need to be accessed by a forklift?

Make yourself a list of ‘must haves’ and ‘would be nice’ and stick to it. Swansway used van sales teams have loads of experience in helping you choose the right van for your business.
