Choice for local van drivers has just got bigger now that local businessmen, Karl Cole and Joe Ellis, have joined forces with national van leasing specialist www.vanarama.co.uk to become a franchise. Although the economy is showing signs of recovery, Karl and Joe understand that local businesses still have huge demands being placed on them for cash so more are choosing to lease their van and hang onto their capital. The pair will use their specialist commercial vehicle knowledge to advise van owners throughout Doncaster and the surrounding area, from delivery firms to builders, gardeners to farmers – white van man and beyond!
The duo have good reason to believe that the business will take them far. Karl explains, ‘Small firms and sole traders often rely heavily on their van to carry out their day to day business. They can’t afford downtime, so aren’t willing to risk owning an unreliable vehicle. Loans for certain things may still be hard to come by, but in the commercial vehicle sector it is different. The finance houses know that their money is secured against an asset so have a healthy appetite to lend and just as importantly, funds available.’ Moreover, a van is a commercial vehicle and as such business users are able to reclaim up to 100% of the VAT too.
Vanarama is already well known for its internet business. The company chose to develop a regionally based team of specialists as there are still a lot of people who prefer to deal face to face when buying a big ticket item like a van or pick-up truck. So, rather than ask customers to deal with a Call Centre, Karl and Joe will visit customers to offer advice in person on the best type of van to suit their business needs.
‘We are looking forward to getting out into the local business community’, says Joe, ‘Many of the van suppliers out there are linked to franchised dealerships and tied to one manufacturer, which tend to concentrate on cars. Vanarama will deal in vans and pickups alone, giving impartial advice on everything from fuel consumption or load capacity, to finance options and tax advantages.’
