How to order a van

We would like to think that we try and make buying a new van as easy as possible.
We are here 6 days a week often until late at night to help you. Our girls and guys are good and really want to give you the best deal and keep you coming back for more and more vans, finance and customisation work.

1. Give us a call with your van choice. We won’t deal with “email me now and only by email ” customers its our choice.
We will have a good chat and listen and ask some questions and about you and your business and try and select what type of van is best and what type of finance package. Most of what we sell is in stock ready for immediate delivery or collection.
2. We will send a written email of what we discussed and call you the next day and take a deposit and a finance proposal. In most cases customers will ring us first as we are quoting on a live van and there is a real danger of it getting snapped up before.
3. If you pass we will send a written order conformation if you fail return your deposit.
In some cases we have secondary funders whom will often accept you but often the balloons are lower causing payments to rise. This is delicate as if you go sending finance props all over the county you can often do more damage than good. Remember your first acceptance is likely to be your best acceptance. We will never know why you fail and lenders will contact you directly not us.
4. You sign the order confirmation electronically and we send you out the paperwork.
You have just bought a van …..
The longer you take to return paperwork the longer delivery is. In fact its the slowest part of the process getting customers to return phone calls, documents etc etc. We will ask for original driver licences and passports and refusal will automatically cancel the deal. Its fraud prevention, and of course a fraudster wouldn’t be able to send these in.
5. If the van is having very basic work we can often deliver it straight to your front door
or if its coming to Swiss HQ it will come to us instead of course for a paid delivery or you to collect. If you have a PX then this will be sorted at the same time.
Some Standard Fords will come to Swiss where the Ford Dealer has been deemed unreliable.
6. We ring you after collection or delivery to check you are happy and to see is you have any friends looking to buy.

Proofs Of Address Example

Dear  (Customer Name),

Once again thank you for your business,

You are about to soon receive your finance documents for E-Signature from Swiss Vans . These can be electronically signed and we will receive them pretty much instantly.

We need to verify you personally and will need you to post your proof of identity. Whilst you are doing this we will need these verified.

To verify your proof of identity you have a couple of options to get these stamped:-

1.    Post office

2.    Bank Manager

3.    Accountant

4.    Solicitor

5.    FCA Regulated Entity

The easiest option will be to post your original Drivers Licence / Passport and whilst doing this have the Post office to verify.

We do have an alternative and this will be to Face time / Video call us once we receive your driver’s licence / Passport.

There is no way around this and need this to enable the finance company to pay out on the vehicle and finalize any delivery bookings.

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 Policy in case the vehicle is written off. Many commercial 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 cheaper. 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. Click here for contract hire.
  3.  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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Asset Finance – 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.

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
