How To Find the Best Van for your Business

If your business specialises in transporting goods and cargo, chances are you'll need a fully operational van. With a variety of sizes and styles to choose from, the perfect van for you all depends on your business. It can be a hard conundrum to figure out; you might only need a small van now, but what about in a few years’ time? They're a big commitment, especially if you need a whole fleet. That's where the practicality and cost-effectiveness of van leasing comes in.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we have a range of van leasing deals suitable for business usage, whether you're self-employed or have employees. Following an initial rental, your fixed monthly rentals and contract length can be suited to your budget and preferences. Reputation and reliability are important to your business, so it's worth considering a vehicle leasing deal for your next fleet.

Consider Payload and Storage Space

Businesses that transport goods and cargo differ in the scale of the work they carry out. Businesses who operate mobile services such as hairdressers may only need a micro van, whereas furniture removal companies will need larger vans to help them carry out their jobs effectively. Vans with impressive storage spaces will be perfect for tradesmen and construction workers, and greater payloads means you can carry your cargo around without fear of hindering your driving experience.

As a start-up business, you may think you only need small vans, but as your company grows, the size of your vans will need to follow suit. Van leasing allows you to change vehicle at the end of your contract, taking you from a smaller van to a much larger one in a few years’ time. We currently have the all-new Vauxhall Combo Cargo on offer at just £139.75 per month ex. VAT, with sliding panel doors for ease of access and an impressive payload of 953kg.

Ease of Access and Drive

Some businesses need to travel through busy cities and town centres in order to get to and from jobs; some may even be right in the heart of the hustle and bustle. With this in mind, you'll need a van that's not bulky and can pick up and drop off goods with ease. Smaller vans are the perfect choice, but if you need extra storage, then a medium sized van will do the trick for parking in tighter spaces too.

Here at MWVC, we have a range of vans and commercial vehicles perfect for all kinds of businesses. This Ford Transit Connect is perfect for smaller jobs and payloads, and at £148.25 per month ex. VAT, it's the perfect option if you're looking for a cost-effective fleet of vans.

Journey Length

With different trades and business types comes different journey lengths; some businesses like to work locally, other's travel the length and breadth of the country for their customers. If you're looking to put in some miles, you'll need a vehicle with comfortable interiors and storage space that can keep your goods safe in transit.
