The Ford Transit has been on sale for well over 50 years, and it’s remained popular for all that time, quite simply because it still sets the standard to which other vans aspire. Durable, reliable, and hugely practical – it has up to 15.1 cubic metres of load space – it was the UK’s second bestselling van in 2018, beaten to first place only by its Transit Custom little brother.
Many of the Transits we have on sale are under five years old, and we usually have a variety of body styles on offer to suit the needs of your business.
The Transit’s smaller sibling has been the UK’s bestselling van since 2013, thanks to its large load space – up to 8.3 cubic metres, accommodating three euro pallets –practicality and low running costs. Safety is excellent too – the Custom has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating. On the used market, it's readily available and excellent value.
Many of the used Ford Transit Customs we offer are less than three years old, with less than 35,000 miles on the clock. Models from 2016 onwards are powered by Ford’s Euro 6 compliant 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine.
Lauded for its cutting-edge technology and generous safety features, the Sprinter is a first-class large van: great to drive, with an excellent reputation for reliability and quality, comfortable, and with a load volume of up to 15.5 cubic metres.
At Vanwise Group, we get plenty of Sprinters in stock, almost all of them less than five years old, and in a variety of body styles including long-wheelbase high-roof versions, tipper trucks and more.
Available as a panel van, crew van or combi with up to seven seats, the small, efficient NV200 has a load volume of up to 4.2 cubic metres in panel van form. As well as the Euro 6 compliant 1.5-litre turbodiesel, which delivers impressive fuel economy of 56.5mpg, there's an electric version - the eNV200 - which uses the electrics from the bestselling LEAF passenger car. You can often pick up a 2016 or 2017 diesel with no more than 35,000 miles on the clock for less than £10,000.
One of the larger compact vans around, and available in myriad configurations, the popular Berlingo combines flexible, practical load space and a comfortable cabin with quirky looks and generous equipment. A 2016 or 2017 Berlingo with less than 25,000 miles on the clock, and powered by a Euro 6 compliant, 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesel engine, can cost less than £10,000.
