Doyou know anyone looking for a new van before the end of March?

The Annual Investment Allowance for commercial vehicles end in April what this means is if you buy a van valued at say £18000 you can off set all of this against your tax liability, from the 6th of April this figure could be as low as £4500.

If you are or if you know anyone who is looking to buy a new commercial vehicle askthem to contact me for some impartial advice.

Whilst on the subject of winter some might find this article by Mike Rutherford of interest http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/columnists/mike-rutherford/8170... it gives his alternative winter driving tips.

If anyone wants to see how easy it is to save fuel,contact me. I dont mind spending an hour with you.

Paul.

Comment by Paul Moorcroft on November 10, 2011 at 4:36pm

It varies on the driver and the car,but I could save you anything between 10-25% on fuel,depending on how you drive.

An initial assessement would only take an hour.

45-50mpg on a run.
