Van News: VW Used Van 0% Finance Offer & London LEZ 2012 Rule Change

Zero percent finance offers are often restricted to new vehicle purchases, but until the end of October Volkswagen is offering 12 months’ interest-free finance (0% APR) on Assured Used Caddy and Transporter vans.

Volkswagen’s Assured Used vans are available from VW Van Centres across the UK and include a comprehensive warranty:

  • 12 months Volkswagen Roadside Assistance in UK and mainland Europe
  • MOT test cover (covering cost of repairs or parts needed to pass next MOT)
  • Multi-point check
  • 12 months comprehensive warranty (with option to extend for extra 12 months)
  • Reconditioning
  • Van data check
  • Seven days free insurance (subject to terms and conditions)

The warranty also includes the cost of replacement parts and labour up to the value paid for the vehicle and a guaranteed replacement hire van if your van is in the garage for more than 24 hours.

London LEZ Rule Change – 03/01/2012

Remember, if you drive a van that was registered before 2002, then starting from 3rd January 2012, you will have to pay £100 per day to drive inside the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ).

Obviously this is not a sensible option in most cases, which leaves van drivers in London with two alternatives:

  • If you only go into London occasionally, why not hire a van in London?
  • If you need to go into London regularly, you do not have much choice but to buy a newer van – so the VW offer above could be attractive.
