Popular Commercial Vans – About Toyota Commercial Vehicles


Like you, we understand that one white van isn’t the same as the next. With so many variations available, the van you choose should be closely matched to your profession. Here’s a short selection of some of the most popular Toyota vans we service and some snippets of what Toyota and people in the industry say about them.

What independent commentators say about the Toyota Hiace van:

“Whilst the Toyota van range is rather limited, it offers the Toyota reputation of reliability. The Toyota Hiace is available in both short and long wheelbase models with  gross weights of either 2.8 or 3 tonnes, top payload of  1,170kg to 1,180kg and a four-cylinder 2.5-litre D-4D diesel engine producing either 95 or 117 bhp. The Toyota Hiace’s has a 7m3 cargo area that can be accessed through the rear doors or a sliding nearside door.

Standard interior features include a height-adjustable driver’s seat, armrest, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, electric heated door mirrors, electric windows, CD player with MP3 input and a driver’s airbag.”

What Toyota say about the Hilux pick up truck:

“The Toyota Hilux pick up truck is a sixth-generation model that takes the concept of exceptionally practical strength combined with true driving enjoyment to new heights, combining a rugged look with aerodynamic design.

The core design is a hard-working and capable vehicle, yet the Toyota Hilux pick up can service your flexible needs, since it also offers the comforts and drive of a passenger car and can be a full five-seater vehicle in double cab format. Toyota say that it is a ready and willing practical pick up partner.”

Main Dealer Service Vs National Van Servicing Network

When you choose your Toyota van also take into account the servicing costs. Did you know that you no longer have to accept main dealer van service prices?

In October 2003 European new legislation affecting the motor industry came into force called “Block Exemption Regulation” 14002002 (BER). The new law now allows everyone the freedom to service a van away from the main dealers, and still have their warranty protected.

This gives you the freedom to shop around and take advantage of national van servicing networks such as Service A Van, who will service your van according to the manufacturer’s service schedule, stamp your service book just as a main dealer can and could save you up to 50% off main dealer servicing costs.

As well as giving you access to cheap Toyota van servicing online, Service A Van will collect and deliver your van free of charge from home or work or virtually anywhere in the country, at a time to suit you. You might even be on a job and having your van collected and serviced at the same time.
