A few months ago I started a new job as a Interior fitter, although i have worked in the trade/service industry for 9 years now it’s something new to learn. I’m now spending more time than ever in a van...and I love it.
A lot of people don’t like vans and I completely understand that, they are massive, very noisy, really hard to park, unbelievably impractical for everyday use and have a thirst for Diesel. However I love a good van. I would happily live with all the downsides to a van especially as poor fuel consumption and parking difficulties are features on my Vauxhall Vectra!
I would love a VW Transporter t5 or a mk8 ford transit, id use them for work, road trips, camping and many exploring adventures and business ventures.
However their is just one issue. And it’s a biggie.
Commercial insurance is an absolute bitch. Below is a list of a few vans, their price and their insurance and you can see for yourself how ridiculous the insurance is
What I will probably have to do is start off with a small van to bring down my commercial insurance then size up to a bigger van as well as try not to have any more crashes ( I may have done a Richard Hammond last year) . But I’m impatient. Very impatient. So until I find a bank vault that can be easily opened I’ll just be sitting looking at vans on Autotrader.
