    I currently have an old van and now that i'm busy i need to get a more reliable van
    i have a few options buy a nice van for about £3200 maybe 2011 or something as i have money in bank.
    my dad said i should lease a van and said you don't have to worry about maintenance
    Finance a van
    don't know much about leasing a brand new van or financing i don't like debt but want something reliable and also something i can claim on the business i will be using the van for 25% personal use
    Thanks for any help :)

    Leasing = not yours, paying for ages to use it and then just giving it back and having nothing to show for your money.

    Financing = Paying for the van and then a shed load on top cause someone said you was good for the money! CAUTION!!! Some thieving finance tossers charge almost 50% APR

    Buying one in your budget = loads of shopping around, trawling the Auto Trader and eBay and Gumtree. Decide on size of system and equipment you want to carry so you know your payload then find a suitable van. With a budget of £3k you should easily be able to find a good reliable van with a bit of shopping about.

    Good luck.
