A new survey has revealed that the country’s vans are ageing. With almost 1 third of vans on the road now aged over 10 years.
The report by the LDF found difficulty accessing traditional lending methods and economic uncertainty as one of the main reasons businesses are not changing vans. It found that 58% of van drivers are turned down by banks, who argue that small business lending has become a less safe option.
Eight years ago just over fifth of vans were aged at least 10 years vs 31% now. Stretching the life of van to it’s maximum can reduce the efficiency of the van and result in increased repair bills.
