When is the optimum time to replace your vans?

There are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to replacing the vans in your fleet – how do you decide exactly when is the right time?

Due to ongoing challenges with vehicle supply, with some manufacturer lead times being as high as 18 months, vehicles will need to remain in your fleet for an extended period of time.

With that in mind, we highly recommend that you spend time optimising your fleet in the best way possible. Vehicles that need to be replaced should be identified well in advance and a plan should be implemented to ensure you also order your replacement vehicles well in advance.

Our experts at Fleetfind are available to support you throughout these important areas of consideration – we will review your fleet policy thoroughly and advise you on your best options when it comes to replacing your vehicles.

Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) or Electric Vehicles (EV)?

Unsure when to consider adding Electric Vans to your fleet?

This decision is not straightforward and requires a lot of consideration, mainly relating to cost, range and charging options.

If you are looking to electrify your fleet of vans, we strongly recommend identifying drivers who will be your early adopters first. Take a stage-by-stage approach to your switch to electrification to ensure there is no compromise to business operations.

Switching to a fleet of electric vehicles needs to make practical sense.

For example, you should have a good understanding of the mileage that your vans do every day. Would this be feasible when driving an electric vehicle with limited range? Would there be downtime in your drivers’ days to locate charging points and spend time charging the vehicle if necessary?

For some, electric vans can make perfect sense for a business due to lower running and maintenance costs. They also reduce your company’s environmental impact, and for this reason, an electrified fleet could boost your reputation with customers and clients.

When it comes to electrifying your fleet of vans, it can seem like there are endless possibilities to consider. We’re on hand to talk you through your options and help you manage this process in the best way.
