Times are tough, budgets are tight, and if you’re trying to keep your business on the move post-pandemic, chances are you’re working to a strict monthly spend.
Which is why these cheap van leasing deals - which all come in at under £300 per month - might be just what you’re looking for.
Here at Select Car Leasing - one of the cheapest van leasing companies in the UK - we recognise that your vehicles are crucial for driving your firm forward. And if you’re operating with unreliable transport, the recession might just end up slowing you to a halt.
Ford Transit Courier
The Ford Transit Courier is a small van that sits between the Fiesta van and the slightly larger Transit Connect van in the Ford commercial range.
And while it’s compact, the Transit Courier is also more than capable.
The deal we have up for grabs is for a high-spec ‘Limited’ trim model packing Ford’s punchy 1.0 EcoBoost engine, a unit applauded for offering decent zip in tight urban spaces while also returning around 50 miles to the gallon.
There’s a decent 599kg payload combined with 1.6m long load space.
And because the ‘Limited’ trim sits just a rung down from the range-topping ‘Sport’, you get an uprated body kit, a side load door upper track cover, and air con.
The stylish Peugeot Partner is a small van that goes toe-to-toe with the Citroen Berlingo and Volkswagen Caddy.
It’s got a payload of up to 1,000kg, 3.3m3 of load space, and it’s not just lease customers who love them, critics do too.
The Partner was named ‘Best for Practicality Small Van 2022’ at the recent What Car? Van and Commercial Vehicle Awards, which is well worth taking note of.
And this particular lease deal is for a ‘Standard 1000’ model with a regular wheelbase, as opposed to the long wheelbase version, and comes with Peugeot’s 1.5 BlueHDi 100 1.5 litre diesel engine. There’s good grunt, with power of 102 bhp, as well as wallet-friendly fuel economy.
Meanwhile the best thing about this lease is that it’s for a ‘Professional Premium’ trim level - complete with rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and electrically-folding door mirrors.
Sitting in the Citroen commercial range between the smaller Berlingo and the larger Relay, the Dispatch hits the ‘medium sized’ sweet spot and makes a great alternative to the Vauxhall Vivaro and the Ford Transit Custom (both of which you can also read about, below).
You get a 1.5 litre diesel engine, power of 102 bhp, and up to 1108 kg of payload and a load volume up to 5.3 m3.
The lease we have available is for a ‘M’ model, as opposed to the longer and larger XL.
And despite the fact that this is an entry-level ‘Enterprise Pro’ trim level model, you can still expect air con, cruise control with speed limiter, two sliding side doors, and twin unglazed rear doors.
As Citroen puts it perfectly, the Dispatch is there for ‘professionals searching for a tool that simplifies their everyday lives’. And you can’t say fairer than that.
Ford Transit Custom
When you think ‘Light Commercial Vehicle’, your brain might immediately jump to ‘Transit’. And the Transit Custom is a medium-sized vehicle that sits a run down from the regular, and larger, Transit van in the Ford range.
The one we have up for grabs here is a ‘Medium’ wheelbase version with a low roof height.
It boasts the 2.0 litre EcoBlue diesel engine with power of 130 PS yet which will also return in excess of 40 miles to the gallon.
Size wise, you’re looking at a payload of 610 kg.
And there’s more than enough driver aids to keep you comfortable on the road, including front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor and a full steel bulkhead with a loading hatch.
The electrified Vauxhall Vivaro-e has been racking-up industry awards like they’re going out of fashion.
And this traditionally-fuelled version upon which the Vivaro-e is based still has a hell of a lot going for it.
This lease is for the ‘L1’ short wheelbase version and standard ‘H1’ height, which brings a 1,000kg payload and heaps of practicality.
And our offer is for the ‘Dynamic F2700’ trim level, which is a complicated way of saying you get cruise control with speed limiter, hill start assist, rear parking sensors, air con, and a full-height steel bulkhead. That’s a lot of spec for a highly attractive monthly leasing fee.

Leasing: The Affordable Way To Drive a New Van
When it comes to van leasing, we’re keen to make sure the experience is both affordable and convenient. With a van lease deal, you get the reliability that a modern vehicle brings, as well as knowing precisely what your fixed monthly leasing outgoings are going to be.
And those fees are fixed for the duration of your contract - unlike interest rates, they don’t go up and down.
Take out the optional servicing and maintenance package, and you’ve got even more assurances.
We also know that vans are built for hard graft. And as such, light commercial vehicles are measured slightly differently when it comes to ‘fair wear and tear’ guidelines - i.e. the condition the vehicle must be in when you give it back at the end of your contract, and which are set out by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA). In short, the van still needs to be clean and tidy, but you’ve got more leeway when compared with a regular car lease.
