5 Best Work Vans
Finding the right work van is actually very important, as workers spend lots of time in their vans and they need to be fit for work purposes. Luckily, there are lots of work vans on the market and we have created a list of the 5 best work vans. The list is in no particular order and we are sure you will be able to find a suitable van from our list.
The Vauxhall Vivaro is a medium-sized work van that is suitable for commercial use. The Vivaro is a standard work van, it does not have all the thrills and luxurious features, it simply does the job, so this is a van that is ideal for tradesmen as they do not need vans that are equipped with the latest technology or that are packed with high-end features. With the Vivaro, you definitely get value for your money, as they are reasonably priced and the rear is large enough to carry pretty much anything for work. The Vivaro is affordable and this is what makes it so popular with tradesmen.
The Peugeot Partner is very similar to the Vauxhall Vivaro, some would say almost identical. The van is medium-sized and it definitely is ideal for industrial purposes and it is very easy to drive. Even though the van wasn’t built to be intentionally luxurious, it is actually very comfortable in the driver and passenger area and it is also ideal to be used for longer journeys, which is great for those who work long distances. Like the Vivaro, the Partner is reasonably priced and it is great to be used for work purposes or even to be used for home purposes such as moving house or taking large items to the skip.
If you are looking for a van that really is fit for Royalty (if Royalty were to use a van, of course!), then look no further as the Mercedes Sprinter really is that. It has won: Best Large Van at the Fleet News Awards 2021, it is the winner for 5 years in a row of the ‘Most Reliable Van’ at the highly respected FN50 awards, it has won Best Large Van at the Business Vans Awards 2021 and lastly, it is the winner of Large Van in the Company Van Today Awards 2021. It is fair to say that the Mercedes Sprinter is ideal for people who want a bit of luxury whilst they drive a work van.
It is fair to say the latest version of the Volkswagen Caddy is equipped with more features and technology than the Vivaro and the Partner. The Caddy is rather sleek in its appearance as it is long but as narrow as a standard size car, so it is very easy to park and It also happens to drive just like the VW Golf and it has all the features that a Golf has like Bluetooth, DAB radio, Air conditioning and parking sensors on some specifications. If you are looking for a van that is very similar to a car and that has some elements of luxury to it, then the VW Caddy is definitely a work van to consider.
Ford Transit Custom
The Ford Transit Custom shares some similarities with the Volkswagen Caddy, as their driver and passenger areas are based on the interior of their pre-existing cars. The latest version of the Ford Transit Custom is everything you could ask for regarding work vans. It has a rather large exterior and a spacious driver and passenger area, it is a work van that people will enjoy driving and they also last for a very long time and they often require very little maintenance or new parts, which makes it a great investment for commercial purposes.
