Top features for your van interior to look out for
Whether you’re looking to expand your business’s fleet of vehicles, or just need a new model to increase efficiency, it can be a hard job to find a van that is perfect for you. Engine type, brand and a hundred other little factors can help to influence your decision, but one of the most important to look out for is the interior.
Here are some of the top features to look out for when you’re choosing a new van.
One of the most important features, if you’re a business on the go, is the storage options available in your van. First, you want a large payload, perfect for carrying any cargo or equipment you may need. This can vary from brand to brand, so make sure you have a good look around and compare the payload capacity. Also think about the loading options, as vans with a side door or wide doors are much preferred for individuals trying to load large or irregularly shaped cargo.
Next up is the storage in the cab. If you spend a lot of time in your van or even work out of it, you want plenty of storage space for contracts, your laptop or anything else you may need. Check if there’s any smart storage, such as fold-down seats with storage built-in, or space beneath the seats to put things.
One thing that might slip under the radar when choosing a new van is the upholstery. Some carmakers will give you a choice, but some will just be fitted with a standard option that you might be left with, even if it isn’t the most suitable. The main types normally found in cars are leather, vinyl and fabric. Leather is perfect for a premium feel, as well as being easy to maintain. But it can be expensive and difficult to repair.
Vinyl is cheaper than leather, but with modern versions, it can look just as good as leather. It is also simple to clean and environmentally friendly, often made from recycled plastics. But it does get very hot in the summer, as well as having a cheaper feel. Finally, fabric upholstery is comfortable in any weather and durable, but is also prone to stains and feels less premium than other material types.
