The building trade is becoming increasingly popular. This has been since the introduction of 'work and earn' learning incentives such as apprenticeships. Another contributing factor to this growing trade is the pressure on governments to build more housing. The UK simply does not have enough homes to house everyone living here. Combine this with the low mortgage interest rates which have also made the demand for property much higher and you can see why it's such a valuable trade. Builders undertake a variety of roles under their humble title and are often thought of as the glue that holds a construction project together. It is therefore imperative that builders have a trusty and reliable vehicle. The ability to get from job to job and between trade suppliers and site is essential. Because a builder typically sets their hand to most construction efforts they will need to be prepared with a full toolkit and enough space for the materials to fulfil a wide variety of jobs. A builder can construct anything from a garage, extension, even a home built from scratch so you can imagine the variety of materials needed to cover all of these jobs.

But for those that do want to be able to work comfortably inside their van, a high roof option will help and a long wheelbase version will provide even more space to comfortably carry tools and materials.

It not only transports you and your equipment from job to job, but it's also there by your side to collect materials from the builder's merchant. Reliability is key. How frustrating to have a perfect weather day for a roofing job and have to cancel at the last minute because the van won't start! Not good business at all.
