Great value used vans: five of the best

Best value vans

At Vanwise Group, as one of the south east's most popular van traders, we pride ourselves on offering great deals on used vans – not just in terms of price, but of quality too.Our in-house technicians thoroughly inspect all our vans before they go on sale, to make sure they're in the best condition possible. But we don't think the excellent quality that we offer is a reason to overcharge our customers. With that in mind, let's have a look at some of our particularly great value vans on offer.

All the below options come with the following features as standard:

  • A side door for easy access (along with rear doors), plus a bulkhead to separate the load area from the cabin
  • A height-adjustable driver's seat and adjustable steering wheel, to help you find a comfortable driving position
  • ABS, a driver's airbag, remote central locking and an immobiliser as standard
