Vanarama and CoolKit join forces to help small businesses

Vanarama and CoolKit have joined forces to offer small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs a helping hand when setting up a business.

The national vehicle leasing company has teamed up with refrigerated conversion specialist CoolKit to create a package enabling would-be business owners to enter the market in the most affordable way possible.

Refrigerated vehicles are needed for businesses in a wide range of sectors – including food wholesale, catering, floristry, pharmaceutical, product sampling and courier sectors. CoolKit’s refrigerated conversions have one of the best payloads on the market thanks to their innovative build techniques and state-of-the-art, lightweight materials used within the lining.

Vanarama, in partnership with CoolKit, offer three different sizes of refrigerated vehicle – the Citroen Berlingo, Ford Transit Custom, and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Simon Lench, Specialist Vehicles Manager at Vanarama said: “Leasing a vehicle is not only an easy way to set up a business without the capital expenditure, it’s the most affordable. You have predictable monthly costs, better cash flow and often a smaller deposit than on other finance agreements.

“All of the vehicles we provide are brand new meaning our customers know they are getting the best-quality van conversions – they’re also delivered free of charge to wherever they need them. All they need to do is add fuel and off they go.

“Vanarama has a good reputation, and so do CoolKit. Our customers can therefore rest assured that they’re receiving a great product, accompanied by great service, at a great price.”

Vanarama set up in 2004 as a used vehicle dealership in Tring and expanded into commercial vehicles. As the business grew, the company took on new product areas like vehicle insurance and short-term leasing meaning it now provides a true one-stop shop. This is perfectly augmented by the specialist vehicle leasing partnership with CoolKit.

Rupert Gatty, Managing Director of CoolKit, said: “We understand the pressures businesses face and, together with Vanarama, we are offering a range of options to customers to ensure the vehicle is affordable and tailored to their needs.

“We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to vehicle conversion technology – and ensuring that our converted vans are the most productive on the market is our goal.”
