  • I would recommend this business

So if you would like to be served with great courtesy and a friendly smile, if you wish you have a swift and smooth resolve to your requirements, and walk away feeling incredibly well done, then I couldn’t recommend Anchor Vans more highly.

They sell used transit cans vans.

They service and offer parts and repairs for all transit vans.

Thank you to the smile and kind service Eve Slatcher. (It makes a world of difference)

Customer Testimonials

Very satisfied with the service I had from Colin the van is great and I will have no hesitations in recommending anchor vans to anyone who needs a van shame there wasn't a service book though which was beyond your control so 5stars from me

Good choice of vans .
Went to look at a couple of transit customs and ended up buying one that was in workshop without seeing it !! 🙈
Liked the fact that some vans are available with no vat !!
But was fine as Colin was very helpful and dealt with any queries I had and loving my Transit !!
Thanks Anchor Vans

Purchased a car from Anchor cars. Excellent service from the sales personnel (Michael) right through to aftercare. The other day I had some problem with the interior lighting of the car. Gave it to the service team to investigate. Not only did they fix the problem but they discovered a small issue with the clutch, which they changed too without fuss all under the warranty period. Excellent service. Thank you.

I have never dealt with a more professional or caring company as Anchor Vans. A particular mention to Carl who dealt with us throughout the purchase and after sales care and I have nothing but positive praise for.

We had to contact Carl to help with a couple of minor things and he went out of his way to help and made the experience as smooth and seamless as possible. He has been nothing but considerate and with the backing of anchor vans, done all he could to make sure we were happy customers.

Thank you for everything - we will definitely be recommending Carl and Anchor Vans to others looking to purchase a van.

I have recently purchased a used a van off anchor vans. After spending a lot of time looking through reviews online i decided to go with them. Still uneasy about making a purchase without actually seeing the van in person Chris rollison put my mind at rest. From the initial phone call to the numerous emails i sent, he was always happy to answer any questions. I arranged to meet halfway at birmingham to collect the van and i wasnt disappointed. Great condition, clean and tidy and nearly a full tank of fuel to drive home. John the delivery driver was a nice guy too.
All in all good service from start to finish. Hoping i dont need to use the after service but Chris has said to call if any problems.

Thanks Chris for all your help

I've just become self employed and needed a van for work, with so many choices on the net I chose anchor vans and I'm glad I did, they delivered my van on time and I'm very pleased with the van. Colin was exactly What you want from a dealer, great customer service and would 100% recommend Anchor vans. Thanks I'm well pleased.

Very pleased with the level of service I received from Michael. Although there was a delay with delivery of my van, Michael kept me informed and added extra fuel to my van. I will definitely be using Anchor Vans again in the future.

Perfect in every way, Eve on the service department is a joy and makes you feel warm and welcome. Exellant service
