To bring in the New Year with a BANG, we’ve slashed the prices on our big vans! These big beasts drove (sorry!) the market in 2016, with demand reaching unprecedented levels.
By now the reasons are well documented – the rise of internet shopping which in turn has created thousands of additional courier jobs. Of course, this isn’t the only reason to use a big van – you may regularly carry big, awkward items or have to carry large loads.
The ‘supercar’ of the van world, the Mercedes Sprinter offers performance, power and economy. Furthermore, a cavernous load area allows for the storage and/or transportation of a LOT of equipment or cargo. With a Euro 6-compliant engine the Sprinter is an excellent choice for van operators in and around London. In fact, emissions zones are due to be expanded across the country so Euro 6 is about to get far more important to everybody, not just those in London. The Sprinter offers excellent refinement (great for long distance driving) and build quality as well as a pleasurable drive thanks to its supple suspension. The Sprinter is also available as a Luton van.
You know the story by now. The Peugeot Boxer shares a body with both the Citroen Relay and Fiat Ducato. As such, all three are very similar in terms of power and dimensions, although features may differ. The Peugeot Boxer offers a range of body sizes so you can choose exactly the right van for your requirements. Easy to drive, the Boxer maintains a composed drive even with a full load. Peugeot’s ‘top-spec’ model is the ‘Professional’, which comes with the following features as standard: A full steel bulkhead, air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors, digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a touchscreen with integrated navigation.
The ‘Backbone of Britain’ is how Ford describes the Transit, and it’s hard to disagree, especially when you realise that the Transit is in fact Ford’s best-selling vehicle in the UK, after the Fiesta and Focus. Some going. Ford claim that there are 450 model variants of the Transit, which continues to be a top-seller over 50 years after it was launched. If there’s one thing you can expect from a Transit, its reliability. The van has been fine-tuned over its life, resulting in the current generation model which was been tested to within an inch of its life (Example: 250,000 door slams. No, really) and has been developed to provide the best possible solution for the end user.
The current generation Iveco Daily is practically a completely new van. Before you ask “Isn’t every van completely new?” – This refers to the van’s design. According to Iveco around 80 percent of the Daily’s components have been redesigned, although it has retained the classic ladder-frame chassis that it’s known for. The Daily offers colossal dimensions, with a maximum load volume of 19.6 cubic metres (yes, you read that right) with big payloads to boot. As standard comes a sliding side load door with an aperture wide enough to accommodate a Euro pallet.
