How To Pick A Van For Your Business

Vans are important investments. For some businesses, they are essential. Plumbers, gardeners, groundskeepers, builders and so many other professions rely on brilliant vans to do their work. Like cars, there is plenty of variety when it comes to vans.

rn

There are Crew Vans, Chassis cabs, Panel Vans and more. Each van has different features and fulfils a variety of purposes. The van you choose depends on what your business wants to use the vans for.

Types of vans

rn

There isn’t one type of van in the same way that there isn’t one type of car. People have different uses for vans and therefore, that requires different designs. Here is a list of the different sorts of vans you could get for your business.

    rn

  • Car derived van – this is a van in which its design has derived from that of a car, for example, a Ford Fiesta
  • rn

  • Box Van – this van comes with a cuboid loading area
  • rn

  • Double-cab Van – this van is designed for those with large crews, it has two rows of seats available
  • rn

  • Single-cab Van – it has a single row of seats, usually for three passengers
  • rn

  • Crew Van – this van is designed to hold more crew members. This requires it to have an extra row of seats available
  • rn

  • Chassis Cab – this van is the most basic of vans. This comes with a cab and is customisable into a box van, tipper or dropside
  • rn

  • Luton Van – a box-style van with the load space extending over the cab for additional space
  • rn

  • Panel Van – this is the van we think of when someone says van. It is a van with a rigid, non-articulated body, which ranges in sizes and shapes. It is the popular type of van on the roads.

The choice of van you make depends on what you need it for. Panel vans can be used for most tasks because of their shape. Luton vans are great as removal vans because of all the load space available. Car-derived vans are small and agile, offering more load space than would be available in a car, but not too large to feel like a different breed.

Once you have chosen

rn

When you have decided on the van you want, you have options concerning how to drive away with it. You can buy it or you can lease it. Both are viable choices for business, but one option will be more suitable than the other depending on your business’ circumstances.
