Second-hand delivery van or renting: which is the best choice for you?

Are you a start-up or SME looking for a delivery van at an affordable price? Then there are two favourable options: you can buy a second-hand delivery van or go for a renting formula. We compare the options.


Are you a start-up? Or an SME with a limited budget? Then it is beneficial for you to buy a delivery van via a renting formula. Renting means that you buy a new car, but pay it off in the form of monthly rent. This way, you can spread the costs and don't have to put a large sum of money on the table at once. You also don't have to go to the bank for a loan, which saves you a lot of expenses. In addition, you don't have to advance the entire VAT, as you pay VAT on your monthly bill.

If you choose a second-hand car, you will have to pay for it all at once. The total price may be slightly cheaper in that case, but bear in mind that you are paying for a car that already has some mileage on it, is less fuel-efficient and will most likely need more servicing than a new van.



At ATL, we have all kinds of delivery vans in stock. Small models, large models, vehicles with or without stickers. So by choosing a renting formula, you can start using the vehicle immediately. No paperwork in advance, because at ATL we take care of that. A second-hand car is also available almost immediately, but in this case you have to take care of some administrative matters yourself. Besides, the choice is also slightly more limited.


Naturally, a used van needs more maintenance than a new one. The expenses are also often higher, but that depends on the condition of the vehicle and the mileage already on the odometer. Service costs on a new car are often less. If you hire purchase a van at ATL Renting, you will benefit from the manufacturer's warranty and can go to the Belgian dealer network for servicing without any concerns. This means you can always go to a garage near you.


Used cars are more often old models that are less fuel-efficient. Firstly, this is not good for the environment, but it is also detrimental to your wallet. New vans, on the other hand, are much more fuel-efficient and have lower emissions. They also offer maximum comfort and fully featured safety systems.
