Finance for light commercial vehicles comes in many forms. Because vans tend to be business purchases, lease and hire agreements are an attractive method for small businesses to procure their vehicles.
Leasing is useful as it allows the customer to obtain a van with a lower deposit and monthly payments by having a balloon payment at the end of the deal. Contract hire is popular with customers who need to get new vans at the end of a finance agreement and don’t want the hassle of selling the vehicle at the end of its term.
The Citroen Berlingo is and has been one of the most popular small vans on the market for the last 20 years. The feature-rich Berlingo panel van comes with rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, free navigation and tracking and a year’s roadside assistance. Oh, and we’ll deliver it for free, too.
Based on the same chassis as the Berlingo, the Peugeot Partner van is almost identical to Citroen’s model. As a result, the costs are very similar too. It offers the same interior features, but does not feature the useful vehicle tracking system that comes as standard on the Berlingo.
Ford’s Transit Connect is one of the newer models in this list – having launched and been crowned International van of the year in 2014 – at just two years old. It’s also one of the best vans for under £200, with very economical engines, excellent payload and load area capacity as well as a 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
The Vauxhall Vivaro panel van is one of the best-selling vans of the last few years. Made in Britain, the Vivaro offers excellent fuel economy matched with an accommodating load area and a full-height steel bulkhead as standard. Luxury features like DAB Radio, Bluetooth and drinks holders (you need somewhere to put your coffee, right?) make it convenient and practical.
Citroen’s Dispatch panel van offers the capacity of a medium sized panel van in a vehicle no bigger than a standard people carrier, which means it has no problem negotiating tricky surroundings – like underground car parks. Cheap to run, this van will carry over a tonne and has the same excellent features as its little brother, the Berlingo.
