Fleet vans

You’re probably wondering “What are fleet vans?”. To put it short, a fleet of vehicles are a group of motor vehicles, usually cars, vans, taxis, busses, etc. that are owned by a business. The said business can choose to either operate these vehicles in the case of taxi companies such as Uber or bus companies, or to sell/lease these vehicles.

How are fleet vehicles sold?”

When companies who own fleets of vehicles decide to sell them, more often then not sell/lease them in bundles of two or more vehicles at the same time as it can prove to be very profitable. Fleet vehicles are often sold/leased to other companies, big and/or small, in order to provide them with a lot of vehicles.

Who do fleet vehicle companies sell to?

Fleet vehicle companies sell vehicles to a wide range of other companies in order to supply them with vehicles which allow them transport people/goods/materials. Examples of customer companies include:

  • Taxi companies – Using cars for transporting people to their desired destination.
  • Construction firms – Using vans/trucks for transporting construction materials from storage to sites.
  • Delivery companies – Using vans/trucks for transporting goods from warehouses to customers.
  • Schools – Using busses for transporting children from home to school and back.
  • Airports – Using planes to transport passengers.

How are fleet vehicles obtained?

Fleet vehicle companies usually obtain their vehicles straight from the manufacturers who sell them at a discounted bundle price. In some cases, fleet vehicle companies also purchase their vehicles from scrapyards who sell them cars, vans and trucks which still work. Fleet vehicle companies then do any needed reparations/restorations to the vehicles and add them to the fleet.

How do I scrap my fleet of vans?

At one point or another, a fleet of vehicles (in this case, vans) will become old and inefficient. At that point, no one will want to buy a fleet of obsolete vans. When that point is reached, you might want to scrap the said fleet of vans and use the money to fund another fleet. This is very simple to. First and foremost, find the nearest scrapyard and give them a call. Decide on a price for the vans. Then, organise for their drivers to come and collect the vehicles. Last but not least, collect the agreed sum of money.

Scrapyards usually pay around £150 per tonne and seeing as how the average van weighs about 2 tonnes, you can expect to be paid around £300 per van. The money can be put into purchasing a brand new fleet of vans! It will obviously net you less than selling the vans, but it will save you the headache of dealing with potential buyers.

Scrap A Van is the best option for scrapping and purchasing vans both in a bundle and individually.

Scraping your fleet of vans

So, your some of the vans in your fleet are starting to break down or there MOT expired or perhaps you just want to get an upgrade your fleet to improve it’s effectiveness well, why not scrap the old fleet to help pay for the new one?

Image result for rusted fleet of vans

Vans just like any vehicle will eventually give out on you. The wise option for this vehicle is to be sent to a scrapyard that will offer you quick service and payment on the day allowing the venture to be as fast as possible.

When scrapping the vehicle, you of obviously will want to ensure the people you are doing business with a legitimate dealer so you want a scrap yard that follows all regulations that have been set as well as offering quality service.

The first regulation that a law abiding scrapyard must follow is having an Authorized Treatment Facility environmental permit. This means the business ensruing it follows regulations set by (DEFRA) these include using concrete surfaces in areas where cars are being worked on and sealed drainage systems to ensure that no pollutants can enter water systems under the ground. This process is called depollution.

You want  to pick a scrapper  you know will  guaranty the safety of not you only but their staff while you are on site with your Fleet, but any decent  scrapyard will offer to pick up the vehicle for you saving you the all that hassle. A sure way of knowing if a scrapyard holds safety as their top concern is if they can show they have a TCM (Technically Competent Manager) that has been certified by Wamitab (Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board) and have COTC (Certificate of Technical Competency) on site always. There are of course more noticeable  ways a in which excellent scrapyard will keep you safe such as having exclusion zones, areas that are marked for you not to go, and ensuring a hi-vis is worn by everyone on site.

While some small time scrapyards may not be able to handle such a influx of vans one place I know can is Scrap A Van.

Ford Transit Van

The Ford Transit van has change a lot over the years but in this post I will be taking mostly about third generation.

Before I compare the two lets have a bit of background for the third generation of Ford Transit vans. The third generation is split into two parts pre-facelift 2000 – 2006 and after the facelift 2006 – 2013.

The pre-facelift van was available in front or rear drive a rarer feature at the time. This model had the Duratorq turbo diesel engine also used in the 2000 Mondeo and Jaguar X-Type, with the petrol versions going up to the 2.3 L 16-Valve edition of the straight-4 engine. Using the engine the van was able to get to 60 mph in 21 seconds with a potential top speed of 93 mph. This winning the internation van of the year in 2001.

In 2002 the first High Pressure Common Rail diesel engine was introduced in the Transit. In 2003 the van  came with a digital odometer.

The facelifted model obviously by the name had a change to the front  of  van this change included new headlights and a new interior. The dashboard was also changed as it now featured a gearstick and a change in the design of the radio. The ford ranger’s  engine replace the one that was in the van previously. In late 2008, the “coated Diesel Particulate Filter” (cDPF)—was designed to meet higher emission standards than the current Euro IV requirement—was introduced as an option on all diesel engines. Production of the van ended in 2013.

There is now a newer version of the Ford Transit which began production in 2013 a recognizable difference is that the front wheel and rear wheel drives have two different body forms.

If you wanted to scrap your old Ford Transit in favor of getting the new Ford Transit simply go to ScrapAVan and they will either collect the van or you can drop it if yourself. There are many reason why you want to do this for example your old van is damaged beyond  repair or the MOT is expired.

Why you should scrap your van.

There are many reasons why you should scrap your old, decrepit van today. Think about this way: Your van is old, barely running anymore and whenever you’re driving it, you feel like it’s about to break down any minute. Right? So why bother milking it any further and not scrap it?


“Okay, so why should I scrap my van?”

As mentioned before, there are a few reasons to scrap your van. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Crash damage
  • MOT failure
  • High maintenance cost
  • Wishing to upgrade to a newer model

Crash Damage: Perhaps you were unlucky enough to be involved in a car accident. With your van being old as it is, a crash can be the final nail in its coffin altogether. Repair costs are high, especially for vans as they need different parts compared to a car, such as the chassis, the front/rear bumpers, you name it. So why spend money to keep that old thing up and running when you can get money for scrapping it which can be invested in that new van that you always wanted?

MOT Failure: The MOT test (or Ministry of Transport test) is an annual test that each car owner has to perform on their car, or in this case, their van. The test comprises vehicle safety, road worthiness and emissions. Well, if your van is old, it will most likely fail the test in one of these areas, or even all of them at the same time. Let’s not forget that it costs van drivers £54 to perform this test. You will still be able to drive your van, but you will need to have it examined and repaired by a mechanic in order to be able to drive it.

High Maintenance Costs: Maintaining any old vehicle is a hard and expensive task. Everyone knows that. Old motorcycles need a specific type of oil, old cars and vans need specific parts which must be replaced if need be. Keeping an old vehicle up and running will be hard on your wallet.

Upgrading: Let’s be honest, we all know that you want that new van model from Volkswagen. Don’t lie to yourself. Wishing to upgrade to a newer model is probably the most common reason people either sell or scrap their vehicles. We want the best there is even though we can’t afford it.

“Wait, did you say scrap your van for cash?

That’s right. Scrapping your van not only won’t cost you a penny, but it will also put some money in your pocket. The prices for scrapping vary from scrapper to scrapper, but in general, you will find that scrapyards usually pay £150 per tonne. Seeing as most vans weigh around two tonnes, you can expect to be paid around £300 for your van. This, of course, will not be as much as outright selling your van but it will save you the trouble of looking for a buyer and negotiating a price. Some people hate that, and all they want is some quick money.

“So where can I scrap my van?”

 The Scrappers have got you covered on that one. Offering quick and efficient services, they will rid you of your van and pay you in no time at all. You will find that the staff are friendly and good at their job. Scrapping your van will never be more enjoyable after you pay The Scrappers a visit.


The depollution process.

Since the Scrappers Is an Authorised Treatment Facility. This means the business is following regulations set by (DEFRA) these include using concreate surfaces in areas where cars are being worked on and sealed drainage systems to ensure that no pollutants can enter water systems under the ground.

So, as an Authorised Treatment Facility must make sure that a car has been depolluted before it is turned to scrap. The reason for this because vehicles contain harmful materials that if they somehow got into the water supply would be devastating. Examples of these materials (pollutants) are, fuel, oil and battery acid. Mercury a poisonous metal can also be found in a cars switches and other components. The oils and other fluids are drained These pollutants are either reused or sent to designated facilities to be processed and later reused. As a safety precaution, there is a limit on how much of these materials can be at the site at one time.The last step is to remove the airbags of the car.

Only once all hazardous material is removed from the car can it be processed this involves breaking the car down for parts and shredding anything left into scrap metal, plastic and rubber. These are then later sold as well.

This guidance states that if a car is depolluted, it must be done so to a particular standard, and in an Authorised Treatment Facility, which has been approved by the Environment Agency, and has a site for storage and a site for treatment. There is a particular process also, which has to be followed, which we have detailed in the infographic below.

Diesel Scrapping Scheme 2017

Do you want to lose out on £2,000? Let’s be honest, no one wants that. Money is good, right?

Cash incentives are to be offered to drivers of old diesel cars in a bid for them to switch to a more environmentally friendly vehicle

The UK Government are determined to enforce the newly-introduced air pollution policies by granting owners of vehicles which run on Diesel up to £2,000 to scrap their vehicles. It is important to note that this applies only to people who own OLD Diesel vehicles. This is because old Diesel vehicles pump out a considerable amount of emissions which can spoil “clean-air” zones in cities. The government stated that the scheme would target the ‘pollution hotspots’ in the UK and targets drivers of diesel cars which were made before 2005.

This means that Diesel vehicles made after the year 2005 will lose out on the £2,000 grant, meaning that an estimate of over 6 million Diesel vehicle owners will keep their vehicles. At the same time, the value of Diesel vehicles is expected to drop by around 40% in the coming months.

Drivers who refuse to scrap their Diesel vehicles will be charged up to £10 per day for driving high emission vehicles around towns and city centres, which quickly adds up to £50 per working week and £70 for the entire week. That means up to £280 per month spent just on emission fees. Alternatively, said drivers can also receive free bus passes and bicycles if they refuse to scrap their vehicles but agree not to drive them around clean-air areas.

The scope of this government scheme is to help improve the air quality in the country which in term will help with the ever-growing problem of global warming.
