It’s that time of the year again – yes, that’s right – new registration plates! September is just around the corner and will bring with it the new 66-plate registrations. As a result, March and September tend to be strong months for vehicle sales as people clamber for the ‘brand new plate’ or rush to find a bargain on the previous plate.
If you’re looking for a new van, you might be wondering why you should go ‘all out’ and plump for a van with the new 66 plate. Allow us to explain.
When you buy a new van, one of the main benefits is that you get to specify the configurations of your new vehicle. Want a ply lined load area? Need a reversing camera or a towbar? There are no limitations when you’re buying a new van.
If you spend a long time in your van – or you just enjoy a certain level or comfort and convenience – choosing a new van enables you to get the van you want filled with all the goodies you want. DAB radio, air conditioning, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity may be seen as luxury features but to some, there are a necessity. Choosing a new van gives you complete control over the equipment inside.
It goes without saying that a new van is going to be more reliable than an older one. With a new van, the likelihood of a breakdown is far lower and you’ll benefit from new, economical Euro 6 engines. More mileage from less fuel? That’s a no brainer!
As the first owner of a new van, you have peace of mind that nobody else has used the van, meaning that it won’t have been driven aggressively or neglected. Don’t forget – with a new van you also get a manufacturer’s warranty and a year’s breakdown cover.
There are a lot of options when it comes to new vans – small, medium, large and pickups. The best place to start is to work out what you’ll be using it for. This will help you figure out what size van you need. Even then, there are a range of options on specific models. Do you need a lot of load space? Or maybe you need some extra ‘beef’ under the hood – no matter your requirements our specialists are very knowledgeable and are here to help you buy a van – not sell you a van. You’ll find van brochures, dimensions, reviews and blogs on our website, all designed to make your purchase as easy as possible.
So, you’ve chosen the van that best fits your needs. What next? It’s time to finance your van. Guess what? There are more options here. We offer hire purchase, contract hire and finance lease agreements, all of which are different. Visit our van finance page for more information.
