What should you look for when buying a small used van?

When buying a small used van there are several things you should look out for, to help you make the right decision:

  • Check the bodywork: When buying a small used van it’s essential to check over the bodywork. In particular, lookout for signs of rust. Check below the bumpers, the wings, and beneath the wheel arches. Push your finger gently on an area of rust, cracking sounds could be an indication of corrosion.
  • Check the suspension: You’ll also need to check the suspension when you’re buying a small used van. The best way to suss out the suspension is with a test drive. Signs of suspension issues include: the van pulls to one side when driving; you can feel every small bump on the road; there’s some difficulty steering.
  • Check the breaks: Ensure that the brakes feel solid, test to make sure that you remain in a straight line when stopping the van. Listen for grinding or squealing noises, both indicate there may be an issue with the brakes.
