Have you not tried Dealerships...

Email ones local to you and ask for the best deal on what van you want , then email the next one and say can you beat this and so on till you get a fab deal..

I havent at the moment Dave, not enough hours and I dont live near enough to them to drop in except the Nissan garage which is over the road. I tried them but they wouldnt budge from screen price which was well over the odds for a lower spec version of other vans.

IS this how our clients get best deal for tiling Dave? :lol: (get price from one tiler, then contact another and ask if he could beat that price)

Feb/March you'll find old demo's going cheaper as they new reg is around the corner. Shop around a lot, and don't hesitate to call a company in Wales, North, London, wherever. As you'd probably save loads of cash and well worth the trip to pick it up.

We have guys ask on the forum about amaroks for sale that they can get hold of quickly (as there's still a waiting list) and the lads get emailed by several firms who have them in or nearly ready.

So if you can find a van forum, then ask on there, as dealers will watch and it saves you calling dozens.

If you can't find a van forum by the way, let me know, I'll make one! There needs to be one for this sort of stuff!

Never looked for one before so didn't know lol

It's poor that is.

Looks like my sparky forum ranks well for 'van forum'.

Might be worth giving it a bash one time.

Looks like I am sorted , good price i think. Certainly better than advertised prices anyway even did a last minute price promise one against one offer.

Very very few people buy vans new. It's why you're struggling to get anything remotely sensible as a discount.

Contract hire is how vans are sold, which makes a great deal of sense if you're VAT registered and own a private car - as you can then claim back 100% of the VAT. Even if you're not vat registered it's still a good way to get into a vehicle.

This site will give you some idea of costs.

Van leasing deals | Contract hire deals

Rule 1 of contract hire - keep off the options list
Rule 2 - See rule 1.

Leasing cars through a business is no longer sensible due to excessive personal taxation - but commercial vehicles are still very efficient.

You should get a decent brand new transit for circ £600 down and £250 per month for 3 years - 30,000 miles over the period. Get to the end, get another one. That'll include road tax usually.

The only time these are not too sensible is if you're doing lunar mileage. However I used to only do around 10K a year in my vans - anything private was run in a car.
