Strong demand means used vans are keeping their value, says Horsham-based specialist.

Horsham, West Sussex -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/10/2015 -- Strong demand means used vans are keeping their value, says Horsham-based specialist.

According to figures recently released by auction company BCA, average values for used vans rose to new highs at the end of last year, with values increasing for three consecutive months.

Strong demand for vans is being partly driven by the boom in online shopping, which is leading to more vans being needed for courier and delivery work. The government announcement of money for new infrastructure, road-improvement and building projects is also expected to drive demand for more vans to serve the construction sector.

Demand for popular vans such as the VW T5 Transporter is expected to remain high this year, both from end users and larger fleet buyers. Horsham dealer Southern Motor Group believes that the VW van range offers a strong value proposition for any size of business thanks to its quality and reliability, with strong residual values being an added bonus.

These same advantages also make the VW, bought either new or used, a strong choice with private buyers who are looking for a multi-seater to accommodate a large family or for a camper-van conversion.
