Padworth, United Kingdom, March 18, 2009 --( Anchor Vans, one of the leading vendors of used vans in the UK, announces the opening of its newly built complex at the Anchor Business Park in Padworth, near Reading. Bucking the trend during these times of recession, the hugely successful used vans retailer is going from strength to strength, expanding its vehicle servicing provision and taking on new staff as a result. The new complex incorporates 12,000 square foot of offices and workshops with facilities for classes 4, 5 and 7 MOTs, covering all cars, vans and minibuses.

Simon Joyce, Sales Director of Anchor Vans said; "The opening of the new centre is the perfect beginning of 2009 for us. Now we can offer even more services to our customers, thanks to these fantastic new facilities." When asked about the new vehicle servicing workshops, Simon replied; "They enable us to offer more classes of MOT than before; on cars, vans and minibuses, so our new and used van buyers know they have somewhere reliable to bring their vans back to for servicing and MOT. Having the new car and van servicing facilities also means we can handle three times the amount of vehicle servicing than we used to. As a result, we have three major servicing contracts with NSN, Masterlease and 1link."

The recession is causing problems in some sectors of the automotive industry, but Simon is very upbeat when talking about the year ahead for Anchor Vans. "Things have never been better for us; we've got the infrastructure in place, our award-winning website with new blog is performing better than ever before, and we have the newly expanded offices and workshops on a site large enough to showcase the 350 or so vans we always have in stock. With new vans becoming more expensive, we know that our used vans can help businesses save money on their critical vehicles when they are economising to survive the recession. That's good for them and good for us!"
