What is a van conversion?

A lot of people are aware of what a van conversion is. But for those of you who aren’t entirely sure as to what a van conversion is exactly, do not worry. A van conversion is simply where a van of your choice is converted into whatever it is you want. This includes the type of conversion you want, the colour, the different items you want added to your van conversion, and so much more. When we say what type of conversion you would like, not many people are 100% what this means. There are actually loads of different types of van conversions that you can have for your van. The most popular being the campervan conversion. Now the chances you have seen a campervan on the road at least once is very high. However, not every campervan conversion is the same. You can have a bespoke van conversion, where the van is converted for literally just you. You can also purchase an already converted van, which you may find to be quite cheaper. However, the decision is entirely yours to make. You can also opt for a day van conversion. A day van conversion would be perfect for those of you who are looking for a work van, or a van to take on a day out fishing. Again, you can either go for a bespoke day van conversion or an already converted day van. As we said, there are loads of different van conversions, and whatever it is you want we would be more than happy to help!

Advantages of converting a van

There is absolutely no point in converting a van, if you are not aware of the numerous different advantages that they provide. So let’s jump straight to it!



The first advantage of converting your van is all to do with the money side of things. If you are someone who likes to go away quite a lot for long periods of a time, then a campervan conversion would be perfect for you! This is because they actually save you a lot of money in the long run as you won’t have to keep spending money on accommodation. This means that you can holiday whenever and wherever you would like to in the UK. Now doesn’t that sound great?! Van conversions are also great investments, as they hold their value extremely well.




The second advantage that comes with van conversions is perfect for those of you who love the outdoors. Campervan conversions, and also day van conversions too, are a great way to get both you and your family of friends outside doing activities. For example, this could be walking, fishing, surfing, you name it! They are also a great way to meet and socialise with new people. If you are someone who loves to make amazing memories, then a van conversion is definitely something you should consider!

 

Moving on to the third advantage that a van conversion would provide. There is a very wide range of base vehicles that are available on the market. This means that these vehicles can be used for whatever it is you like. Whether it is for leisure or work purposes, the vans are great for everyday use. This is due to the fact that the drive for a lot of them is very car-like, meaning that they will actually be a lot easier to both park and operate. This is just another reason as to why people love converting their vans.

How much will this cost me?

We are aware how important the cost is to many of you, and we completely understand why. On average, most van conversions cost between £8000 to £20000. However, this does vary due to a lot of different factors that influence the overall price. For example, things such as who completes the van conversion for you, what type of base van you choose, the type of van conversion you would like, and also any van accessories or bodywork you want. All of these different factors do play a part on impacting the overall price that you end up paying for your van conversion. However, there are actually quite a few things you can do when it comes to spending your money. For starters, you may actually choose to go for a second hand base van. This may be a lot cheaper than getting a brand new van, but there are a few things you may want to thoroughly check beforehand. This includes if there is any signs of wear, or rust, or anything that shouldn’t be in or on the van. If there is something seriously wrong that you are not aware of, you may find yourself in a position where you have to spend more money in order to get it fixed. Another thing that you may decide to do is complete the van conversion yourself. Now this is something that you should only do if you have the required skills to complete it properly. Your safety should always be the top priority and you should never put it in a position where it is compromised. If the safety aspect is something that you cannot guarantee, then we do not recommend that you attempt to complete the van conversion yourself. As you know, getting a professional to complete the van conversion for you is always the better option. Another thing you may want to do in order to save even more money is to avoid van accessories, or only purchase ones that are completely necessary to you. Setting a budget may even be a good idea. However, whatever you decide to do is up to you and you only. 

What things should I add to my van conversion?

Van accessories are a great thing to add to your van conversion if you want to go a step further by enhancing it even more. There are a wide range of van accessories that are available on the market for you to purchase for your van. This includes accessories such as roof bars, pop top roofs, and also alloy wheels. When it comes to purchasing van accessories for your van, there are a few things that you may want to ask yourself before you actually go to purchase them. Things such as “will this van accessory benefit me?”, or “how will I install this van accessory?”. By doing this, you will be able to easily eliminate any potential mistakes that you may make such as wasting money on van accessories that you do not need. 


Alloy wheels are perfect for those of you who are after both practical and cosmetic benefits. Not only do they give your van a very desirable contemporary look, but they also allow for quicker acceleration. Alloy wheels are also added to vans, as they provide you with the ability of stopping your van a lot quicker. Who knew what an alloy of magnesium and aluminium could do?!

Another really popular van accessory that a lot of people tend to buy for their van are roof bars. Now, roof bars are great for both campervans and day vans. This is because the simple collection of bars that are attached to the roof of your van, provide the same benefit to all vans. What we mean by this is that with roof bars you are able to store large items on top of them. So if you are someone who wants to take a particular item away with you, roof bars are definitely something to invest in. They are also perfect for those of you who are looking to free up some space inside your van. So if you are worried about not being able to fit everything in or not having enough room inside, you may want to consider purchasing roof bars for your van. 

Another major thing that you will want to add to your van is storage space. Not many people actually think about storage, and actually tend to find themselves in very sticky situations. To avoid doing this, you will want to invest in an appropriate storage system. For those of you who are unsure about the numerous different benefits that a storage system provides, then you will be glad to know that you have come to the right place. For starters, if you are using your van for work purposes, you really do not want any of your equipment or tools damaged. So in order to avoid this, you will want to invest in a storage system that will ensure that none of your things will become damaged. It will also make it 10x easier to find everything that you need in a matter of seconds. This means that you do not have to worry about becoming extremely stressed or frustrated when you cannot find the thing that you need instantly. You will need to make sure that the storage system you purchase has gone through safety testing, the same as all of the other van accessories that you are intending to buy. 

DIY?

Thinking about doing the van conversion yourself? Well, there are a few things to keep in mind first. Firstly, it would be very risky to try and complete the van conversion yourself if you have had no experience in doing something like this beforehand. This is because something could go horribly wrong, resulting in further consequences. For example, if you install something incorrectly, you may find yourself in a position where you have to spend even more money on trying to get it fixed. Doing the van conversion yourself is something a lot of people go for in order to save money, and having to spend more money on trying to get something fixed is definitely something that you do not want. Instead, it is always best to get a professional to complete the conversion for you. You can do it yourself if you would like to, but it is important to be aware of the risks that could occur at any time.
