We at Insure Courier have noticed that courier vehicles come in various different shape and sizes. We have decided to do a review on 3 of the best and most popular courier vehicles.
The Citroen Berlingo is the smallest vehicle that we are reviewing. Many people regard this as the best all round small van that is available. It’s been a best seller for some time now and this is due to a variety of reasons. It is a relatively cheap vehicle and is available second hand at under £5,000. It also has plenty of space for courier drivers to deliver its packages. The Citroen Berlingo also has great fuel consumption.
The Ford Transit is arguably the most recognised van around. In 2012 it was estimated that for one in every four vans sold were Ford Transit, with the Ford Transit being such a popular vehicle that Ford have made a whole range of vans in various different shapes and sizes. The largest Ford Transit can carry up to 7.94 m³ load space on the short wheelbase. With it being such a large vehicle you may be surprised to hear that it is actually a very comfortable vehicle to drive. Many second hand vehicles are available with prices starting from around £4,000.
The Mercedes Sprinter is a classic medium sized van. It is probably the fastest van available. The Mercedes gives you a load space of 7.5 cubic metres on the short wheelbase up to 17 cubic metres for the longest wheel base. It also has relatively good fuel consumption at around 36mpg. One of the vehicles main positives is its reliability. The Mercedes Sprinter is possibly the best drive around for comfort and speed. This vehicle however is of of the more expensive vans to buy.
