What Are The Best Vans For Couriers?
In the UK, courier services are absolutely essential to our day-to-day lives. Couriers work tirelessly delivering everything from food and groceries to overseas mail and much more. Statistics show that the amount of packages being delivered in the UK has risen significantly over the years, a grand total of 2.8 billion parcels were delivered in the 2019-2020 fiscal year. This was an increase of 209 million parcels to the previous year. Taking this into account, courier services are ever-increasing and just as important as ever.
A reliable and consistent courier service needs good-quality transport and this unsurprisingly often comes in the form of a van. However, with so much choice on the market these days, it can be difficult to know where to begin in terms of finding the right van for you.
With that in mind, in this blog, we run through three types of van ranging from small to large that we believe are ideal for those in the courier industry. All of the vans listed are fantastic value for money, have good fuel efficiency, not to mention are extremely reliable! Read on to discover more.
