The concept of cheap vans has changed somewhat over the last ten years. Many business owners both large and small would opt for the cheapest option, often going for a used van over a new one. What this amounted to in the long run, was increased maintenance costs, and poor operating performance of the van. Subsequently good deals were exposed as bad ones.
When this false economy was realised, van lease companies emerged. The prospect of a new commercial vehicle paid for over monthly payments with no deposit became too strong to resist, given the lower running costs. Many van leasing companies carried a range of special offers which included unlimited mileage and finance leasing options.
As the market grew, and vans could be had on leasing contract hire, each company had to be more competitive than the next to get the business. A buyer's market developed, and business owners were quick to take advantage of the better deals that each company marketed to get the business. Many tailored quotes to the personal needs of the business, and as a result the offer that was on the table proved too good to resist.
It is now standard practise for businesses regardless of size to opt for a lease hire agreement when they have decided to go for a commercial vehicle. This has been proved beyond measure to be the cheap option when it comes to hiring vehicles, and as a result the used vehicle van market has declined.
The service from van lease hire companies tends to improve with each passing year. Many commercial vans are always in stock, and the range available is extensive and designed to suit the needs of all types of business.
