What are the benefits of renting a van and why choose white?
There are many benefits to van hire over buying a new van or even leasing one. Here’s why you should consider hiring a van for your business:
You choose the best option for your business
Businesses often have changing needs, some that are short-term, others that are longer-term. Regardless of how long you need a new van (or more) for your business, vehicle hire makes more sense than buying a van that quickly depreciates and you might no longer need after some time. You get to choose the type of hire contract based on your needs. If you have short-term, flexible needs, a short-term hire might make sense for you. But, if you need a van for a longer period of time and you know your needs are more fixed and predictable, you might want to consider long-term van hire. It’s all up to what you need. We can help you find the best match.
Save some costs
Van rental for business use means you can benefit from tax relief. Businesses who lease a vehicle may pay the VAT upfront, but they are entitled to claim up to 100% of the fee. Not to mention that van hire can be a cheaper solution. Many vehicle rental companies offer good deals for businesses, especially fleet discounts if they rent multiple vans.
Most van hire packages include maintenance such as an MOT or service, as well as minor repairs. This offers complete convenience to you, as you can ask the provider to schedule any maintenance or repairs as and when they are needed.
Why white van hire?
Let’s break the stereotype of “white van man”. We’re not talking about aggressive drivers; we’re talking about hard working businesses and entrepreneurs. And hard working sole traders and company drivers care about their business image and drive responsibly no matter what colour the van is.
White is the colour of choice for top van models like Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit or Volkswagen Transporter. White means professionalism.
It also means you have a great canvas on which to advertise your business. Get creative and customise your white van hire to make your business stand out.
Also, did you know that white reflects the sun and keeps things cool? That’s right, it’s science. If your drive a lot in hot weather, you’ll want a white van rather than a dark coloured one.
