A Bristol-headquartered commercial vehicle dealership is revving up for success thanks to funding from six-figure funding Barclays.

Established in 2012, Vans 365 is a RAC-approved dealership specialising in new and used vans. The company recently purchased and moved to new two acre freehold premises at Staunton Lane, Whitchurch, Bristol, providing much needed space for additional stock and as well as offering onsite a one stop dedicated workshop and office space.

Jordan Franklin, owner of Vans 365, said: “It’s has always been my ambition to have bespoke premises to operate the business from and it’s now a great place to welcome and conduct meetings with potential customers.  It’s provided space to increase the number of vehicles on site and improve the workshop facilities which can only help to enhance the customer end to end experience when buying a commercial vehicle from us.

“Since moving to the new location, commercial vehicle sales have already amplified and the site is proving to be a great platform to build upon for the future.”

The dealership, stocks all makes and models of commercial vehicles ranging from £2,000 to £50,000 which are hand selected and sold across the UK and beyond.

Jason Grail, Barclays Business Manager, Bristol, who put the funding in place,  added: “We’re pleased to have been able to support Vans 365 in securing their new premises and we’re very proud to be associated with the next stage of their ambitious growth plans.

“Vans 365 has a strong position in a niche market and this is a great opportunity to maximise the potential the business has to grow its customer base across the South West which has to be good news for the business and the local economy.”
