Maintaining the resale value of your van is easy with a little time and investment. We have outlined 5 easy steps you can take to keep your van in top shape and to keep yourself safe!

1. Ply lining:

Why should you get ply lining for your vehicle?

Increase your vehicles durability and usability by installing ply lining. Ply lining your vehicle has many benefits:

*  By fitting a ply lining kit you protect your investment, and will improve your vehicles resale value. When you resell you may wish to remove the kit, leaving the body work in almost new condition.

*  Ply lining your vehicle will stop internal damage, such as scratches, caused by shifting loads.

*  Ply lining gives your vehicle a professional, finished look. In addition you can add load securing rings or a cargo rail to your vehicle. This will secure your loads when travelling.

2. Bulk heads:

Commercial vans are often responsible for carrying plenty of heavy equipment in the cargo area. It is important to make sure that this cargo is a safe distance from the driver and passengers in the event of sudden braking or a crash. Steel and wooden bulkheads are available, and they each have their own unique advantages.

A van bulkhead is a vital component of any commercial van that currently has no barrier between the cargo and passenger area. If the van comes to a sudden stop or is involved in a wreck, these items in the back can fly toward the front, causing injury or even death. Whatever bulkhead suits your needs best, the top priority is the safety of your passengers.

3. Oil:

Dark, clean oil is the sign of a healthy engine; any discrepancy in the color or gradient of the oil should be addressed immediately to keep your van healthy.

4. Coolant:

This protects your van against heating and rupturing the engine and other components under the hood. Check for indication of low levels and immediately top it up as needed. This will help you to avoid overheating the engine.

5. Tyres:

Maintaining the tyres of your vehicle is essential for optimal functioning.

Low tyre pressure results in increased fuel consumption. Tread on the tyres should be checked regularly. Tyres without the correct tread could result in a fine as they are dangerous.

Follow these simple steps and regularly ckeck your vehicle to maintain the resale value and keep yourself, and your van, safe.
