  • Four models to consider when buying a used van

    One of the most popular van models in the UK

    According to reports, last year saw 400,000 vans registered, the highest number in one year since before the recession. With so many models to choose from and a number of high-quality vans available, it can be difficult to know exactly which model suits your needs when buying a used van.

    We've decided to take a look at some of the most popular vans on the market, giving you some insight into which model may be best for you.

    Ford Transit

    The latest Transit model, released in 2013, is proving exceptionally popular due to its high performance, comfortable size and versatility. The model is the most popular of all Ford vans, and this is shown by the fact that across all Transit models, the van had more than 65,000 registrations in 2015. With strong reviews, a Transit model could be the perfect fit for you.

    Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

    With all-round excellent performance, a sublime interior and a significant amount of load potential, it's unsurprising that the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is such a popular model. With a new design being introduced due to the success of the 2013 model, Sprinters are becoming more readily available - at an even better price.

    Volkswagen Transporter

    Although tarnished by the emissions scandal, Volkswagen vans remained unaffected, with their models incorporating different technology to their cars. With a new T6 model launched last year, the Transporter model continues to be one of the most popular types on the road today. With many used models available and the vehicle being suited for numerous trades and a healthy amount of storage, the Transporter is certainly one to consider when purchasing a used van.

    Peugeot Partner

    Despite being launched in 2007, data shows that last year just under 15,000 Partner vans were registered. The model is exceptionally versatile and was considered by many to be ahead of its time when launched. With an 850kg payload and consistently strong reviews, the popularity and the availability of the Partner means it is a prime candidate for anyone considering purchasing a used van.
