Rally - Service vans

Service vehicles ... If you’re on the look-out for a new Service Van then you might want to keep an eye open for used ‘welfare vehicles’. These are large vans with office/working accommodation built-in, plus such things as water heaters, sinks and hand-washing facilities, cookers and/or microwaves, power inverters and split twin battery system and some even have a chemical loo in the back.

Naturally the interior can be modified to suit your own needs, but the advantage here is, that you get a lot of kit built in that might just be useful.

I had to attend a photocall last week in Yorkshire where Nixon Hire were presenting a used 3 litre diesel Citroen Relay ex-hire fleet ‘welfare van’ to Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team based at Great Ayton. They needed this for a Mobile Command post after their previous 20 year old vehicle failed its MOT! Naturally the team were delighted with the one year old vehicle and made the most of its existing fittings to install their own equipment.

Anyway, just a thought.

By the way, that's the thousand metre high Roseberry Topping in the background on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park. They call it the 'mini-Matterhorn' locally because of its shape and climbing difficulty.

Fortunately I resisted any attempts at Scottish humour versus English mountains, although I did ask one of the members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team how many mountains they had rescued in the past year. Some folk just have no sense of humour.


  1. An efficient Clutch Replacement is so much needed than just to spend money aimlessly. There are some people who spend more in order to get hte best service and best product also rather spending less money.

  2. Online sales are like standard sell-offs in the manner in which they work. There are merchants that have vans accessible and there are purchasers (you) who need to buy a van for significantly short of what you would from a merchant. Purchasers who win the closeout are relied upon to pay for their buy trailers dealer in Missouri
