Vans are in short supply – Vans4Lease expert Chris Tunnell offers his thoughts.

Vans are in short supply – Vans4Lease expert Chris Tunnell offers his thoughts.

There is one thing that’s for certain, in these uncertain times, there is an almost unprecedented shortage of new vans available to lease. 

We are advising customers is to start thinking about their next lease van now, even if they’re not needing it for 9 or even 12 months. 

The reasons for the shortages of vans is varied, from increased demand to shortage of parts, but as a business we are in daily contact with manufacturers and dealers to ensure that we know what is coming to market and when. 

We have had some rare in stock gems in recent weeks, for example we had a small batch of Citroen Berlingos available earlier in April, they flew off the virtual shelf very quickly but our lucky customers were extremely pleased to have our ‘inside knowledge’ on their side. 

Whilst in years gone by you could start thinking about your next lease van 12, 9 or even 6 weeks before you needed it, and pretty much be guaranteed to get the exact make, model and spec you were hoping for, it does require more planning during these strange times.

Vans4Lease make it our business to keep on top of what’s available and we ensure our customers are in on this loop. To benefit from this personal, expert please just get in touch with Chris today via email Chris.Tunnell@ovl.co.uk or call 01491 615515.
