April 1st, 2022

If you need a new van for recreational or business purposes, you’ll often find yourself overwhelmed with the number of choices on offer. One of the biggest questions to ask yourself is whether a new or used van is best for you. There are positives and negatives to both, so you should think carefully about what works best for you.

So read on to find out more about the differences between new and used vans.

NEW: Maintenance Costs

New vans often have lower maintenance costs than used vans. You have the peace of mind that you are the first person to be using the vehicle and all the parts that are in it. While used vans can come with extensive documentation proving their quality, you’ll often find some of the parts are much older and won’t last very long, needing to be replaced soon.

NEW: Technological Advancements

There are always new advancements in the technology installed in vans, meaning you can always find something amazing in a new van that the last model didn’t have. If you want access to the latest technology, you’ll want to buy a new van instead of an old, used one.

USED: Van Deals

While you can occasionally find great prices on new vehicles, the best deals on the market are usually found on used vans. This is because new vans are often sold at a manufacturer recommended price for a new vehicle, while used vans usually aren’t.

USED: Depreciation

While new vans are commonly priced by their amazing features, they begin to rapidly decrease in value from the second they get off the lot. Then when you go to sell it, you’ll find yourself being offered a price vastly different than what you paid for. If you buy a used van, you’re paying for the condition it’s currently in, so you won’t lose as much money in the long run if you eventually decided to trade that van in.
