Big things have small beginnings, and some days it's hard to believe that Vanarama started its journey in 2004 with a team of just 3 people in a porta cabin. Today, we employ around 230 people and Vanarama is the ultimate destination for your next vehicle.
What We Do
We all want the latest technology with the option to regularly upgrade - just like a mobile phone. At Vanarama we understand that your vehicle is a statement about you and we want to make it as easy to upgrade as you would your phone! Our aim is to get you moving in the most cost-effective, simple way possible, so we'll be there every step of the way - from choosing your new vehicle to delivery straight to your door.
We’ve been in the industry a long time which means we have the largest buying power and can offer you the very best deal - for whatever your needs. And as well as a huge range of vehicles, we also provide a range of van leasing finance, van insurance and maintenance packages.
Our dedicated customer support team is always on-hand to help, keeping you up to date all the way from order through to delivery. We're here to answer any queries you have as quickly as possible and even if you found us online, you can always come and visit us at our head office!
To further enhance your customer service experience, Vanarama is a member of the Institute of Customer Service (ICS). We like to think that this investment and commitment in our staff is one of the reasons that 95% of our customers would not only recommend us, but also use us again.
