Buying Vans and Light Commercial Vehicles?

Trucks are the engine behind business in Britain, ‘if you bought it, a truck probably brought it’ like the old adage goes. Trucks are extremely useful, they carry heavy tonnage in long haul trips across the nation as well as internationally. They also travel in some instances through some of the most dangerous ice flats in the world. The problem is, when you want your goods to reach their final destination, you generally require something smaller. In this way it is possible to think of trucks as syringes, and the van as the needle that will distribute the items in smaller quantities the locations they’re needed.

It’s no surprise to learn that vans and Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) have their own niche and are as significant in their bigger Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) counterparts.

What makes the LCV so popular? It is because they are less expensive to run than HGVs and will be less costly to purchase in the beginning. The area where LCVs really stand out is their flexibility. The same vehicle can be outfitted Van for sale and changed to fulfill a multitude of purposes, from the transportation of retail items to being able to provide roadside repair services like tire fitting and puncture repair.

A single HGV fleet can only transport weighty objects while an LCV fleet can perform an overwhelming number of jobs. Many business franchises are operating from behind the transit vans because of this purpose, which is a remarkable achievement.

According to data released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders According to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, new commercial vehicle registrations increased year over year through 2005 and showed a healthy increase. If you examine the annual statistics to even 2009, the number of commercial vehicle registrations decreases particularly as of 2007 with 186,386 in 2009 from the healthier year-end figure of 329,599 in 2004, A decrease of 43.4 percentage, no less. I believe that the huge drop as of 2007 is due to an unstable economy, both British and international. In uncertain times, among the first things businesses do is look to reduce spending. Why not look at your expensive fleet?

The point I am trying to get across is that there’s an abundance of 2004 LCVs that are floating around the marketplace. In areas where registrations of new commercial vehicles are declining, the sales of used vehicles are likely to increase. Why? because used vehicles are evidently cheaper. This presents an opportunity for small business owners and fleet managers, as there is more room for them to purchase an additional fleets for less cost. With the many 2004 reg vehicles out there you can purchase a fleet that is fairly new that will last for a long time to come, and all while keeping a tighter budget.

This highlights the important of doing your research when looking for used vehicles, trucks and commercial fleets as it helps you better concentrate your search, and could help you save time. In addition, in carrying out this research, you could find areas where you might be successful in finding high-quality goods where others would seldom think to look. And the best part is, the information you need is freely available on the Internet provided it is where you search.

By doing your research, you’ve identified a particular type of vehicle and year which presents itself as a potential niche. You only need to go out there and find these. To find something like this you could look for used car sales or more interestingly, used car auctions both in person or on the internet.
