New ALD Automotive Trade Van programme is aimed at small businesses and professional trades

LEASING company ALD Automotive has launched an ‘off-the-shelf’ Trade Van contract hire programme.

The Trade Van programme is directed at small businesses and the trades to provide trade-ready vans with bespoke racking.

ALD Automotive says its Trade Van programme would suit trade professionals like:

  • electricians
  • plumbers, and
  • decorators

Trade Van works across a wide range of van makers to provide improved flexibility to small businesses that want a range of high quality internal fittings.

ALD Automotive says that businesses will be able to tailor each van according to trade. Internal conversions are carried out by Sortimo. Once converted, each vehicle is weighed to ensure the van operator is aware of the new payload.

Matt Dale, LCV operations manager for ALD Automotive, said: “Trade Van expands our presence in the trade market with a strong product designed to meet trade professional’s varied needs.

“We’ve worked closely with Sortimo to ensure each vehicle is fit for purpose and meets European Whole Life Type Approval. Customers can be assured they’re receiving a quality product.”
