Used vans: making the right choice
In addition to the usual criteria like good aesthetics, when choosing a used van you need to concentrate on practical needs. Here are a few key points to look at before making a purchase:
Which engine to choose. Most often, commercial vehicles are equipped with diesel engines which are more economical for intensive use. Diesel van power ranges between 100 and 120 hp. Consider how you will use your van and ensure it has sufficient engine power for when the vehicle is fully loaded.
Which load volume to choose. When considering a used LCV, volume and payload are essential information. Look at the gross vehicle weight and the permissible gross weight. If you plan to carry heavy goods, avoid unpleasant surprises.
What equipment is on board. The equipment on board often centres arund handling and loading. In addition to basics like power steering or electric windows, focus on the equipment that will make your every day life easier: liftgate, integrated GPS, parking assistance, etc. Check that all this equipment is functional and has not been misused by the previous owner.
