Van franchise opportunities

Sales of vans and pickups in the UK have been growing steadily for four years – not least because 99% of all businesses in the UK are now small and medium sized enterprises. This means that van retailers and auxiliary services are kept busy, keeping Britain’s 5.4 million SMEs 'on the road' to success. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, 375,687 light commercial vehicles were registered in 2016. If you fancy getting in to vans as a self-employed retailer or a van rental company, have you considered a van franchise?

There is another strong business opportunity emerging in this sector too, converting vans into mobile sales units for small business ventures - see van based franchises. Whatever self-employed niche you are aiming for, the backing of an established company can be the key to success.

Van sales franchise ideas

A great example of a company happy to share their tried and tested business model is Autosmart, which has van franchise opportunities throughout the UK. As does the aptly named The Van Franchise Ltd. VANXTRAS is a franchise opportunity in accessories and van conversions.

Or, you could rent out vans, under franchise-supporting companies such as Practical Car and Van Hire.

Benefits of a van franchise

Why not just set up independently, as van sales are so buoyant? For many, valid reasons. Not least because customers buying or hiring vehicles usually lean towards trusted names. A van franchise provides you with an existing customer base to go after, and tools such as websites to get customers through the door. It also provides vital business management support, including help with insurance, training and legal compliance.

Perhaps most significantly, a van franchise provides you with buying power and contacts to get the best deals on vehicles and equipment, meaning your profits can be higher. To get your van franchise up and running, with the right help and support to drive your business to success, contact us today.
