Pros and Cons of Using Your Work Van for Personal Use

December 8th, 2022

If you use a van for work, there are plenty of reasons to make the most of it for personal use too, with tradespeople tasked with all manner of tasks and assignments. Whether going about your daily business and driving from location to location with heavy equipment, or simply setting out on a family day trip – vans are a great asset.

Read on and make the most of adaptable tradesperson vehicles, with fantastic Van Sales UK deals and offers.

Available Storage

Any way you look at it, excess storage within your vehicle is always a good thing. If you’re looking to make the most of a hefty payload to navigate building materials and utilities from A to B, a spacious interior is ideal. In terms of personal use, the available storage can be used for a much different purpose, with customisable van options allowing for the installation of additional seating. Van models which can be seamlessly modified for families include the fantastic Ford Transit Custom – a flagship design from the industry leading van suppliers over at Ford.

Road Ready?

Work vans generally aren’t designed to possess the nimble efficiency and navigation of road models, meaning that drivers can encounter some issues when using a workplace vehicle for personal tasks and trips. Generally a tradesperson vehicle will compromise urban efficiency for a higher payload, but versatile options such as the Peugeot Boxer can be handy for multiple applications. Parking sensors and integrated SatNav are a real lifesaver in cramped city settings, while Luton variants maintain handy road features while boasting an enhanced payload.

Save On Expenses

Running and maintaining multiple vehicles to serve a similar purpose can equal unnecessary expenses, therefore using a sole work van as your weekend motor can make a lot of sense. If you’re looking to save money on rising fuel prices, it may even be sensible to choose an electric van variant – with many reputable manufacturers releasing ‘e’ variants of their flagship models. This includes the Toyota e-Proace, a spacious panel van which is inexpensive to keep on the roads.

Adequate Interior

A van kept for personal use will ideally contain a number of techy features to satisfy passengers, and this may be viewed as a tough task within conventional work vans. Within the current climate, van manufacturers are looking to include interactive dashboard features and integrated tech within the cab.
