Demand for vans has risen sharply from cleaning companies, delivery businesses and pharmacies in the UK, which are being inundated with additional work as the coronavirus crisis worsens.
Commercial vehicle specialist Low Cost Vans say it’s seen a sharp spike in demand from these sectors, as companies struggle to meet the needs of customers.
Rod Lloyd, managing director of Low Cost Vans, said: “These are unprecedented times for the UK economy but the fact is that many businesses have to keep moving. From certain sectors, the number of inquiries we are getting has doubled or even tripled. Cleaning companies, couriers and pharmacies are inundated with additional work.
“Speaking to these customers, they are telling us that their main objective is helping the UK through some tough months ahead. But they are often struggling to get supplies and personnel in the right places at the right times to make a difference. For many of them, we have been able to get extra vehicles in place quickly and efficiently, which will also hopefully make a positive difference.
“We have also introduced a number of measures to help businesses of any description through these challenging times including additional discounts on certain vehicles, waiving admin fees associated with finance deals and always aiming to work towards offering achieving similar monthly payments as currently being paid by customers acquiring a similar vehicle. We have plenty of stock available across all vehicle types and will help customers in any way we can.”
