One of the best small vans on the road, the Citroen Berlingo crew van can juggle shifting cargo with carrying passengers. The Berlingo has built up its popularity due to being fuel efficient and practical making it the ideal vehicle for tradesmen and professionals. See our other crew vans for sale
Adding an extra row of seats to the Berlingo allows for space for up to 5 passengers. But, this will reduce storage space for your cargo or equipment. You can fold the seats on occasions you need an increased capacity.
It only comes in the XL length to allow for the best possible load space. You can accommodate extra long loads by folding both the rear and front passenger side seats.
Most of our competitors tend to be leasing franchises that all sell the same “specials” that tend to be basic vans purchased at the same time by the hundred. Often the vans you are offered have sat around a while. They tend to prefer contract hire as it locks you into them for some time. We work via banks rather than by these franchises so we are not as tied in so can offer more of an array of van finance deals. This is why our vans are fresher and deals better. There is no leasing franchise taking a cut. All methods are tax deductible. All methods you should really have GAP Insurance Policy in case the vehicle is written off. Many commercial insurance policies will not pay new for old.
Hire purchase – VAT down or VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months. Click Here.
Contract Hire – This is more popular on cars than vans. Many customers think there is no credit check but there is. Its better for large fleets and doesn’t offer any advantage for less than fleets of 10. If you want to change over 10 vehicles in one go and they are basic then please get in touch.

Lease purchase. Not always the best deal as some manufacturers offer discounts that cannot be used on lease purchase. Its just like HP but with a final payment and once it’s paid you get automatic ownership. It’s better once again for VAT registered businesses especially if you want a T6.1 for example to keep at the end and convert to a motorhome. Sometimes a pre registered van is cheaper. Click here
Finance Lease – By far the most popular method as it attracts the lowest payments . It’s gets the largest discounts from manufacturers same as contract hire. However you can fit accessories many of which you cant n contract hire
Operational Lease – Is just like finance lease however you can hand back the vehicle at the end. Some of our Mercedes vans are like this
Asset Finance – We can finance many products not just vans
Credit Limit – Pre approve your van purchases 90 days in advance. Useful for example if you have a contract tender.
If you write a vehicle off in say year one the insurance company may well pay you less than the settlement value. Thus through no fault of your own you may need to buy a older cheaper van to reach the same monthly payment. Click Here to buy a GAP Policy
New Citroen Berlingo.
All models have simply the best seats on market that mean longerloads can be accomodated. The French are the masters of having a van smaller than actually needed
There are automatic versions available but availability can be poor. If you factor order it can be 3- 6 months for delivery.
The crew van version doesnt come with centre windows and you cant get the VAT back as the payload is too small
The diesel engines of the Citroen Berlingo are all the same with different factory remaps
There is now some pretty decend Car Infotainment and parkimg packages
