  • 3 uses for your van in 2017

    vans 2017

    Long gone are the days when vans were simply used as a vehicle for removals or construction businesses. Okay, there is little sign of the White Van Man disappearing yet, but now many drivers are starting to understand the versatility of vans. Here we look at 3 very different reasons why vans are ruling the roads in 2017 and beyond:

    1. Food vans

    If 2016 was the year when pop-up stores really made their mark, why shouldn’t 2017 be owned by food vans? We’re not just talking about kebab and burger vans - street food vans peddling world and fusion cuisine are incredibly trendy with vans making the perfect mobile kitchen. But cocktail bar vans are another enterprising service seen in pretty much every town across the country. The great news is that you can convert your old VW van into a profitable business and still use it for fun on the weekend.

    2. Campervans

    Speaking of which, campervans have never been so popular and with very good reason. Who wants to be stuck in a dingy guesthouse when you can come and go as you please instead? With the likes of the Danbury Doubleback and Transporter T5’s coming down in price, you can forget about Bournemouth this summer and set your sights on a Euro road trip instead!

    3. Party vans

    Camping and festivals go hand in hand but more and more funseekers are opting for vans instead. Just think about the ease with which you can combine travel and accommodation instead of dealing with a leaky tent and endless parking issues. And you can still enjoy music events as most festivals have dedicated sites with running water and electricity hook ups so you can concentrate on chillaxing and enjoying whatever music floats your boat.

    So there you have it, three reasons to make more use of your van this year or perhaps even invest in one for the very first time. Contact us today for more information.
