Your van is essential to your business. It carries you and your tools or goods, but also reflects how you look to customers, employees and rivals.
Keeping your van reliable and looking smart will relieve you of stress and allow you to get on with what you are good at. And there has never been a better time to renew your van than now.
The current global situation means that there is a shortage of cars, but manufacturers have been keeping the production lines for vans open to help the economy and feed the high demand. Eden’s special relationship with Vauxhall, Peugeot and Fiat Professional has meant it has been able to secure stocks of commercial vehicles too, giving you the best choice.
At the same time, the demand for used Vauxhall vans, and Peugeot vans has never been stronger, and this means your current commercial vehicle may be worth more than you think. That will make a new van, approved used van or pre-registered van from Eden even more affordable by making your ‘cost to change’ less.
Trading in your old vehicle and buying a new van from Eden will also bring many advantages. The latest models from Vauxhall, Peugeot and Fiat meet the latest emissions standards which will mean they can drive without charge in the Ultra Low Emission Zones being introduced in major towns and cities.
For even bigger savings you could even make the switch to pure electric. You may be surprised at how practical the latest models such as the Vauxhall Vivaro-e, Combo-e and Movano-e can be. In addition to load space and carrying capacity which should satisfy the most demanding businesses, these 100% electric vans are even able to tow a trailer.
Models such as the Vivaro-e and Peugeot e-Expert can travel more than 200 miles before needing to recharge. If you do need to top up the battery while out and about, these models can take on an 80% charge in around 30 minutes – barely enough time for a sandwich and tea break.
There are big advantages too. Besides the fuel savings - and never having to visit a petrol station again – electric vans will be able to enter the stricter Zero Emission Zones in cities and currently receive a 100% discount on the London Congestion charge. That will save drivers who need to enter central London £15 per day.
Buying a new van will also allow you to tailor your vehicle to better suit your business. Perhaps you need more space or realise you could actually downsize your van to a small but spacious model like the Vauxhall Combo or Fiat Doblo. Eden’s experts will also be happy to discuss other custom fittings to help your business, from signwriting and racking to full custom bodies such as tippers and recovery beds.
