Here we have put together a helpful F&Q section to help answer the questions you might have about leasing a van.
  • Can I get finance being a sole trader?

    YES! Rather than having to consider taking out a bank loan, it is a more cost- effective way to manage your finances. The benefits from leasing includes being able to drive a brand-new van and significant tax advantages.

  • Is applying for finance easy to do?

    YES! One of our team will be by your side every step of the way to explain fully the credit application and how the credit checks work and offering advice on your budget.

  • What do I need to be able to complete the credit application / credit check?

    There are four main things you will need to provide to check your eligibility.

    • Name, DOB, Marital status
    • Company details – name, address, company registration numbers and annual turnover.
    • Business Bank Details – bank name, account, sort code.
    • Bank Statement for the last three months.
  • If I am an electrician what type of van do you recommend?

    Small vans like the Volkswagen Caddy, Ford Transit Connect and Mercedes-Benz Citan are perfect for a sole trader. Compact size and smart.

  • I’m a carpenter / heating engineer what type of van do you recommend?

    Medium vans are represented by vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz Vito, Vauxhall Vivaro, Volkswagen Transporter and Ford Transit Custom. They are popular choices for a sole trader looking to get the balance between larger loads and spacious cabins

  • What large van would you recommend?

    Large vans such as Ford Transit and Peugeot Boxer offer up space and high-weight payload capabilities for sole traders who place a premium on being able to carry everything – you’ll see traders of all types using them.

    And then there’s specialist vehicles such as refrigerated vans, Lutons, dropsiders, tippers – anything you need we can help you!

  • Can I add sign writing to my van?

    YES! We can get this arranged ready for delivery or you can get this arranged yourself. As long as the livery is removed before the vehicle is given back and no damaged is caused to the van at end of contract.
