Usually part of a fleet management contract, supermarket vans are a popular choice for small business owners looking to buy a cheap van. Asda is one of several stores that has provided online delivery services for more than two decades. As a result, there are thousands of ex-Asda vans in service around the UK, including many that are not in their best condition. Infact, when it comes to resale, these high-mileage workhorses can be hard to shift second-hand.
Like Tesco, Sainsbury’s and other supermarkets, Asda’s online delivery service has taken off in recent decades with many shoppers now opting for home delivery rather than heading in-store. It is estimated that the company operates a fleet of over 1600 vans which are in service for a period of four years. Operating seven days a week and often on the road for 12-14 hours a day, these hard-working vans don’t get a break when they are finally sold at auction. Used supermarket vans are a great way for small businesses to get a delivery vehicle and are snapped up at a good price to continue active service.
Despite scheduled servicing and maintenance taking place overnight when they are owned by the supermarkets, a used Asda van comes to market with high-mileage and several years’ worth of wear and tear.
With so much active service, it’s little wonder that a second-hand supermarket van can sometimes throw up mechanical faults. Whilst some may be easy and cheap to rectify, others can be uneconomical to repair.
Let’s face it if you were able to pick up a used van for under two grand but find yourself facing a bill that exceeds that then you are more likely to replace your Asda van instead. There are many mechanical faults that can add up to huge repair bills, including problems with:
