Nissan vans ‘deemed most secure by BIVSA’

JonathanOctober 18, 2012

Traders and companies who recognise that their van is their livelihood could opt to use a Nissan van leasing deal.

This is because the Japanese manufacturer’s light commercial vehicle range has picked up two accolades at the recent British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards (BIVSA) 2012.

Nissan won the van manufacturer award which recognised the work that the company’s engineers had put in to preventing thieves breaking into or stealing the vehicles. The award covered all of the vans in the range, so firms opting for any of the NV200, Primastar, NV400, Cabstar, Navara and Pathfinder vans will know that they are secure.

As Nissan’s security features have been recognised by BIVSA, the award will also ultimately help insurers reduce premiums for van drivers and fleet operators.

“Insurance is a major outlay for all van operators and Nissan has spent years improving all aspects of its van security across its extensive vehicle range,” said Andy Connell, category manager for light commercial vehicles at Nissan Motor Limited.

Those who need a big van to help them transport valuables and goods around the UK should look no further than the Nissan Primastar, which won the heavy van category for the second consecutive year.

Thatcham chief executive Peter Shaw said: “Congratulations to Nissan. For many commercial vehicle owners any potential threat to their vehicle is not only an inconvenience, but can also represent a genuine threat to their livelihood.”

He added that vehicle security is “imperative” and these awards will demonstrate to the commercial fleet sector that Nissan has demonstrated a “real focus” in this area.

Van leasing could help traders and companies save further money.

As well as the potentially reduced insurance premiums and lower chance of vehicle damage associated with Nissan vans, contract hire could mitigate the expensive upfront costs that are often viewed as unavoidable when acquiring state of the art technology.

For instance, the award-winning Nissan Primastar 2.7 2.0 DCI can be leased from as little as £180.16 a month.
