Starting Your Own Business? Get A Van!

December 7th, 2023

Whether branching out on your own or deciding to set up a side business, it is vital to have the proper equipment on hand from the start to help you out. One of the essentials for many small business owners is a van.

Read on to find out some of the benefits of having a van when starting your own business.

Operate From Your Vehicle

One of the best benefits of having your own van is that you can operate from your vehicle. There has been a rise in recent years of services on the road, where a business can come to you with their van instead of customers having to come to your place of work.

This includes jobs such as pet grooming where you can transform the back of your van into a purpose-built space to operate from. This can allow you to reach more customers who might not be able to get to you, as well as travel further afield to potential clients.

Van Tax

The amount of tax that you pay on a van depends on how you use it. There is road tax, and then any personal tax you might have to pay for using a work van for personal use. If you are self-employed, you do not need to pay company van tax. You can claim a number of van-related expenses if you are self-employed, which can come in handy.

Branding On Wheels

Having your own vehicle with branding on can instantly turn your van into branding on wheels. Having a car exterior that has your name, logo, and contact information turns your car into a moving billboard essentially. As you drive around, potential customers will be able to spot your van and might be inclined to inquire about your products/services. You might get interest while on the job, or even if you’re using your van for personal use!

We always recommend customising your vehicle in this way, as a branded vehicle can help set you apart from the competition in contrast to a plain-looking van! A branded vehicle adds a sense of professionalism and confidence in the legitimacy of your business.
