Where could I buy an ex-supermarket van?

Where could I buy a used Tesco or Asda refrigerated delivery van?

Ex-supermarket fleet vans are usually sold at auction. British Car Auctions (who also sell vans) and Manheim are two of the UK's largest commercial vehicle auction houses, although there are many more smaller independent sales taking place up and down the country every week. It's important to understand that you don't get the same level of protection when you buy a van at auction, but prices are significantly lower and you can get a great bargain with bit of knowledge. For all of our auction buying advice and tips, see:
