Would a 9-year-old van with 130,000 miles on the clock be an unwise purchase?

I have been looking at a 2011 Peugeot Expert. It's being sold at £2500 and has 130,000 miles on the clock. Is that high? Also, how long would that last me? I have a business transporting dogs back and forth from clients' homes to my house.

Most vans are nearing the end of their mechanical life as they approach 10-years. However, if this van has a comprehensive service history that shows a service (with oil and filter change) every 12 months or 12,000 miles then it might provide a few more years of service. Check for slip on the clutch, a replacement will cost upwards of £800.
