Van load of sales from LDV website Birmingham-based LDV has scored success with its new approved used sales website.
The website – www.1000vans.com – is now receiving more than a thousand hits a day – and the fastest sale was conducted by LDV's Glasgow dealer, Imperial Commercials, within one hour of the customer logging on.
The site's first sale was through Imperial Commercials in Bristol.
The new site sells vans from every manufacturer including Ford, Mercedes, Citroen, Iveco and Volkswagen as well as LDV's own award-winning MAXUS.
The site is updated daily as vans throughout the UK become available. Pictures, specifications and prices are posted on the site and customers have the reassurance that prior to sale, all vehicles are subject to LDV's Vanguard Programme.
Purchasers can choose to upgrade their van online with a list of van extras including sign writing, satellite navigation, plywood lining kit and load space bulkhead.
Sales and marketing director, Tony Lewis, said the new site was providing a successful sales resource for the company and its nationwide network of dealers.
"The site has given us an added edge and we're now investigating further ways we can use new media to promote and sell our products," he added.
