LEADING car and van auctioneer BCA (British Car Auctions) is offering some very valuable advice to SMEs with business vans.
The key is, knowing which features are worth paying for when it comes to resale value.
The decisions you make when you buy your van are crucial in maximising its resale value according to Duncan Ward, BCA’s general manager for commercial vehicles.
“A van is a working tool, so getting the right specification for the job is a given. But, equally, getting the right added extras will make any van more attractive to used buyers a few years down the line when it is time to sell.”
“The auction buyer will seek out the best vehicle they can buy with the budget they’ve got – and if a van with two side loading doors, a bulkhead and aircon is on offer that will be the one they bid for, if all the other vans available are basic models.”
“The key is knowing which features are worth paying for when it comes to resale value.”
So what’s Duncan’s take on the best extras to go for?
