Van Maintenance

Keeping your van in a good and safe running order should be a priority for any van owner or driver.
Regularly checking the basics will ensure the following:

  • Reduce running costs
  • Reduce the likelihood of breakdowns
  • Maintain safety for you and other road users
  • Stay legal

According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) there are 3.6 million Light Goods Vehicles (Vans) used for business across the UK. This outnumbers trucks on our roads by more than 7 to 1. The DVSA also claims to stop around 15,600 vans each year as part of its roadside mechanical checks, at a cost to their owners and operators of circa £4,000 per day, per vehicle.

Barry Clarkson of Clarkson Vehicle Rental has produced a short video outlining the basic checks that you should carry out to ensure that your van is safe, legal, mechanically sound and efficient.
