Businesses and the Right Van Selection

When considering acquiring a used vehicle, you should take your time. It can save a lot of money for many businesses looking to buy a van, but if crucial red flags are ignored, it can also cost a lot of money in maintenance. It isn’t easy to know what to consider when purchasing a vehicle.

The first step is to determine what sort of van is appropriate for your business and what size van will be most beneficial. There is a wide range of van sizes available, and it all depends on the type of business you run. For example, a courier fleet may require a large van, whereas a handyman will want a larger space than an estate car.

Storage features, engine power, operating costs such as miles per gallon and tax, security, and maximum payload allowance are all possible considerations. If the company wants to project a particular image, the van’s appearance may be considered.

What to look for when looking at a second-hand van

When examining a van for purchase, take your time and go over a checklist of things to look out for. Let’s start by making a sensible checklist and discussing the critical relevance of each item on our list.

Because vans have larger wheels than a typical car and require additional load characteristics, tyres are a vital and often pricey repair. We all know that we won’t get the maximum tread on a used car or van, but we attempt to avoid the 1.6mm minimum tread required for legal road use.

Although immaculate bodywork isn’t required, this van will be advertising your company. Therefore it should be relatively dent and scrape free. Avoid any van with a lot of rust, especially in critical sections where mot failure is a possibility. Similarly, the interior will almost certainly receive brutal treatment from the employees, primarily if the van will be used for business. Still, a respectable interior will keep the user pleased when driving the van. After all, this van may be used for longer journeys or as a mobile office for a staff person.

Mechanical wear and tears, such as signs of oil and water leaks, light functionality, steering feel, gear shift ease, fully functional dashboard, brake reactivity, and air conditioning, should all be carefully checked.

Fine examples of used Citroen vans to consider

Citroen’s contribution to the van and commercial vehicle market has been enormously successful. Gathering some of the current used Citroen vans to give you an idea of the various van sizes available for your business needs should help you in the selection process.

The Citroen Berlingo, widely regarded as the most popular and practical van, delivers a lot for such a small vehicle. The van’s lightweight base and engine technology are to credit for its performance and efficiency. The Berlingo comes in three models: Worker, Enterprise, and Driver, and is available in both diesel and gasoline. Used Citroen vehicles in this model are available for a low price and vary in year and colour.

Consider a medium-sized van like the Citroen Dispatch when looking at used Citroen vans. This van will have more space than the Berlingo, and the new-generation Dispatch is sharper and more streamlined in terms of technology, cargo space, and manoeuvrability. Having a professional appearance that can effectively market your business with decals on the huge sidewalls and barn doors will increase your visibility to the general population. Used Citroen vans of this size are more popular among tradespeople that need more space for larger equipment, such as decorators and plumbers. This van has a payload capacity of 1400kg when it comes to equipment.

The Citroen Relay, which comes in four versions, may deliver efficiency and practicality thanks to the options available. These used Citroen vans come in three different configurations: Panel Van, Window Van, and Crew Van. X, Enterprise, Worker, and Driver are the four models in the line. They all have their benefits for various business types and can help you increase your efficiency by providing ample cargo space. When it comes to weight, the Relay can handle it all, with a payload capacity of up to 1,870kg.
