Selecting Your Next Van Lease

Vauxhall Combo

With so many makes and models of vans available on the market, it can be difficult to know which van fits your business needs the best. There are many factors that go into choosing your next van lease, and it’s important to make sure you consider them all.

We’ve put together a list of things you should bear in mind when looking at the various features and capabilities of each van.


Possibly the first spec you look at will be the vehicle size. By that, you need to look at both the payload weight and the dimensions of the load area. While you need to make sure your equipment, tools, or cargo can fit in the load bay, you also need to not get a van too large for your requirements. You would end up paying more for a larger van that you don’t need. We’ve put together some handy van size and dimensions guides to give you a clearer view of what each van can do.

Fuel Economy

With the rising costs of fuel not looking to slow any time soon, the van’s fuel economy will make a big difference to your expenditure. Generally speaking, the smaller vans get more miles per gallon, such as the 70mpg Vauxhall Combo Cargo, but you can get a respectable 42mpg from the Vauxhall Movano large van lease.


Something that a lot of businesses need to take into account is the number of seats in your van. If it’s just the driver, then this may not be a priority for you. However, if you’ve got a team of workers and you don’t want to waste money on several vehicles to get them to site, a good crew van can carry up to six people while still having a good payload in the back for equipment and cargo.

Trim Level

Many businesses just need a workhorse, a van to get goods and people from A to B. But If you want your business to stand out, then it doesn’t hurt to add a few extra features. A higher trim van, like a Ford Transit Custom Limited, can appeal to your customers while adding some extra comfort to your journeys.


It has to be a consideration. Whatever your opinions on diesel versus electric, the UK government’s ban on new diesel vehicles is getting closer. The question isn’t whether you should make the switch to electric, but when. Is your business ready to move to an electric van lease yet, or do you need a diesel van for a few more years while you get things organised?

Whatever you choose, as long as you know what you need for your business then you’ll have a good van that will serve you well. And if you’re not sure, the experts at Van Ninja will help you find your perfect van lease.
