Transporter tops Van Desirability Index

Added: 28 July 2021

Newly launched 'Van Desireability Index' surprises no-one at Wessex Vans by announcing VW Transporters as the most desirable van! Closely followed by the Iveco Daily (desireable for its up to 7 tonne weight load for heavy industry) the VW Transporter beats the rest, including the Transit Custom, way down in fifth.

Geoff Flood, Aston Barclay’s LCV national sales manager said: “The used van market has risen by 48.3% since Q1 2020 which represents a price increase of £2,381."Aside from price we thought it would be good to see what make and model of vans are most popular at auction.

"Ford, Mercedes and Volkswagen all appear on our list, while the IVECO Daily was the only heavy weight van that featured in the top 25.”

Aston Barclay’s data takes into account three key metrics:

  1. web views prior to sale,
  2. the number of physical and online bids per sale,
  3. and the sale price achieved as a percentage of CAP average.

The full list can be seen below. For more info search Aston Barclay.
