"We've noticed a distinct shortage of used vans that are in the 3 year old bracket," said Simon Joyce, Sales Director for Anchor Vans. "We know this is a direct result of the credit crunch because when it hit three years ago many companies with fleets of commercial vehicles didn't buy new replacement vehicles. Everyone was tightening their belts and making do with what they had for as long as possible.

"Now, three years later, those vans which would normally have been bought new that year simply haven't trickled into the used van market," Simon explained. "The impact can be seen in prices of used vans which are going back up due to the shortage not being able to easily meet the demand for 3 year old commercial vehicles. Many people have seen the long-term effects of the credit crunch,"Simon concluded, "this is just the way it's impacted upon our industry."
