In fact, choosing a safer van will help keep your insurance costs down too. Your van insurance provider will be able to help you establish the safety of your vehicles and provide a quote.
However, it’s worth doing your own research on the options available before you invest. There is quite a bit of useful information out there. For instance, recently the UK’s fifty largest contract vehicle hire companies were surveyed about various models of van, and the results were used to produce a list of the top ten most reliable vans of 2010. This information is valuable for anyone looking for a safe van that they can rely on for their business.
The top ten safest vans of 2010 are as follows.
1. Ford Transit
2. Mercedes Sprinter
3. Ford Transit Connect
4. Citroen Berlingo
6. Vauxhall Combo
7. Nissan Navara
8. Vauxhall Vivaro
9. VW Caddy
10. VW Transporter
These are all great manufacturers and any of these models will be an excellent choice, although various features will differ so it’s worth considering which will be best for your particular requirements. This is something you might also want to speak to your insurance company about as it may make a difference on what policy you get.
