Van Lease Costs

There are many occasions in a person’s lifetime that hiring a van may present a cost-effective and time-effective method of transporting a large quantity of goods at one particular time. Such occasions may include moving house, moving into university halls or transportation for a community service or society to name but a few. Van lease costs can often be substantially less than using a smaller vehicle to transport a quantity of goods when multiple journeys are required. By leasing a van the user is able to move the goods in one journey with one vehicle and therefore a single set of costs.

Furthermore, hiring a van is often a cost-effective method of transporting goods for a business, whether an employee of a business or self-employed. Often employees are asked to organise the transportation of goods by whatever means are deemed appropriate. As with personal use, van lease costs can often be much lower than an alternative means of transport. Furthermore, the costs associated with hiring a van are substantially lower than if the company operated and maintained a van itself, especially when the van is essential yet used infrequently.

Self-employed van users may find that hiring a van presents a cost-effective means of using a van at the outset of a new business. Whereas purchasing a van presents a large outgoing for a newly-formed business with many associated maintenance and insurance costs, hiring a van presents the business with a single outgoing cost on a daily basis. Van lease costs are substantially lower for a new business than buying, insuring and maintaining a van with the associated responsibilities and liabilities. Hiring a van presents an attractive alternative to purchasing a van when the success of the business is not assured and overheads must be kept to a minimum.

Furthermore, there are a number of further advantages to leasing a van in addition to the aforementioned advantages. Hiring a van means that different sizes and shapes of vans can be used as and when they are required, whereas if a van were purchased the business would be restricted to whatever van was originally purchased. The result is that the use of vans by the company is flexible and adaptable to the task that is at hand. In addition, van lease costs often encompass the option to pick-up and drop-off vans in different locations. This is particularly advantageous for one-way trips, transporting goods from one location to another as it means that the user does not have to pay for transport in both directions and is not restricted to returning by that particular means of transport.

So whether a van is required for personal use or for business use it is well worth considering leasing a van. Van lease costs are often much lower than would be anticipated, providing a much more cost-effective means of transport than any alternative. What is more, hiring a van offers many advantages over purchasing a van for self-employed operators and small businesses.
