Commercial vehicles in the UK can be of varying quality hence it is important to send experienced buyers to auctions and not take chances bidding blind over the internet. On average we have to reject in excess of fifty percent of all inspected stock.

Our buyers are trained to specifically inspect Vans for under body corrosion problems and damage repairs which will cause problems with importation to your country. Obviously we tempre our inspections to your own countries import regulations but as with our car buying service our buyers are available on site to inspect vans before a sale and send you their report and any pictures that will help you decide on your best bidding price.

Although knowledge of your local import laws and regulations is your own responsibility we are able to advise on cars that will or will not comply in your country. Our buyers are used to checking key information on the spot such as Carbon Dioxide emmisions, Euro Standards number, Gross Vehicle weight, Gross Kerb Weight and all important dimensions for shipping, We can also notify you if a vehicle has had any VOSA revisions that are not listed on the auction catalogue such as the retro fitting of a tachometer and upgrading of the vehicles carrying restiction weight.

We can also find and inspect specialist commercial vehicles such as Minibuses, refrigerated units and freezer units, Hiab lifters and crane vehicles. Heavy goods vehicles can be inspected with plenty of prior warning due to the specialism involved in truck inspection.

Further to the Auction network we have extensive trade contacts throughout the country and can source used vans and commercials to order from some of the biggest van fleets in the UK. Vat on UK Vans and commercials is usually charged at 20% on top of the buying price. This tax can be reclaimed if the vehicle will be getting permanently exported outside of the EEC and we can help to facilitate the reclaims for you.

We can also arrange discounted transport to every major UK Port and can arrange preferential Shipping rates for New Zealand customers or door to door delivery for Irish customers.
