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.

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.
