The Ford Transit Custom Kombi. 8/9 seater  The name is a bit weird as its derived from the German name Kastenwagen but in this case its more like a basic minibus. A true combination vehicle generally would only seat six people and have space for a tonne so if you want this look for a Double Cab In Van or Double Cab.

IDEAL FOR LARGE FAMILIES WHO ALSO HAVE A BUSINES
Factory order very rare to be a stock item
This could change if demand increases

Seats up to 9 people as a flexible Minibus
Glass all round
Make sure you go for the 3300 KG version to ensure the payload is a tonne with the seats folded
so you can claim back VAT if registered

Van Finance

7  Ways Of Van Finance  
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 Plicy incase the vehicle is written off. Many commerical insurance policies will not pay new for old.

  1. 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.  Sometimes a pre registered van is checper. Click Here.
  2. 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.

  3.  Lease purchase. Not always the best deal as some manufacturers offer discounts  that cannot be used on lease puchase. Its just like HP but with a final payment and once its paid you get automatic ownership. Its 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
  4. Finance Lease- By far the most popular method as it attracts the lowest payments . Its gets the largest discounts from manufacturers same as contract hire. However you can fit accessories many of which you cant n contract hire

    GAP Insurance.
    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

  5. Is just like finance lease however you can hand back the vehicle at the end. Some of our Mercedes vans are like this
  6. We can finance many products not just vans
  7. Credit Limit. Pre approve your van purchases 90 days in advance. Useful  for example if you have a contract tender.

Leather Upgrades

We offer a range of leather upgrades that you can choose on most vans.

  • Upgrade to a fine Nappa typically £500. These leathers
    smell like you can only imagine and are soft to the touch.

    Nappa leather can stain more easily though its softer

    Van Leather Ordering Questions That We Might Ask

  • Obviously the colour of the leather ! There are about 60 leather colours approx.
    Its great to be different but if you order a ‘Katie Price” its going to be worth less not
    more in 3 years !
  • The material. There is basic standard  leather, Robust Leather, Nappa Leather, Mock Suede
  • The stich pattern. Cross, Bently, Oval, list is endless. Ask your account manager for a link to build your leather. Its an interactive app.
  • If you want a logo or any branding

Minibus Leasing

Minibus Leasing. Swiss vans sell minibus from 8 seats up to 17 seats but there are a few things to consider as the cost of ownership rises sharply with a minibus. There are two main types and classes, up to 9 seats and over 9 seats.

9 Seater Minibus Leasing

  • In practise any 9 seater minibus will have three passengers in the front and it gets  a little cramped so many taxi firms and authorities prefer an 8 seater so the driver can concentrate better.
  • The Road Fund License for a 8/9 seater can easily be £1200 a year, after all it is officially a bus.
  • LWB Minibus are more popular as it allows for a little luggage space behind the rear seats in most cases.
  • Some finance companies will not totally comfortable  with a few professions such as self drive hire, taxi companies, airport run companies.
    So you need to be ready with facts and figures. Bank statements, accounts, and of course a reason for wanting a minibus in the first place.
    In many cases finance acceptance is easier without a final payment. No one will believe and rightly so that an airport transfer company does 10,000 miles a year ! What you don’t want is to be in a position of negative equity and in some cases drivers are in a van that is costing more in deprecation than they are actually taking in income.
  • If you are using the vehicle as a private hire some local authorities will have different rules to others. For example twin side loading doors

17 Seater Minibus

  • As with the 9 seater many prefer to sacrifice the middle seat for driver comfort and safety.
  • Again the RFL can be £1200 a month plus
  • Again LWB can accommodate slightly more luggage.
  • In most cases a Tachograph is required and a special drivers licence. Before you even ask for figures its a good idea to check on this.
    Can you actually drive a minbus ?
  • Again finance companies prefer small or no final payments
  • Again supporting paperwork really helps an acceptance
    e.g Bank statements
    Accounts
    Proof of a contract with a local authority such as a school or prison
All prices subject to VAT. Images are for illustration purposes only.
