VW Campervan Biz Expands
Lincoln based Vintage VW Campervan hire company Anne’s Vans has announced that it has expanded its fleet of vehicles with the addition of an immaculate 1978 “late bay”.
Named Bertie the new van comes in pastel blue and white paint with beautiful VW branded cream upholstery. Bertie has a built in Smev gas oven, sink and hob unit together with a built in flat screen TV.
Local businesswoman Anne Davies said “I founded Anne’s Vans a couple of years ago when we decided it would be quite cool to own a VW campervan but because good ones were quite expensive thought it would make sense to try before we bought. It turned out that trying one out was easier said than done. Everyone was booked up for the summer season.On that basis we looked around and bought our first van from someone in Great Yarmouth.
Our plan has always been to grow the fleet if the first van proved a success. Last year proved the business model for us and so over the winter we invested in a second van. We were turning business away in 2017.”
Davies talks about the quality ethos of the business.”It’s very important to us to offer a high quality product. We want our customers to have the best time possible and come back next year for repeat bookings. We also want them to recommend us to their friends. Turns out the reviews have been great, both on Google and Facebook so we must be doing something right”
In 2017 people flew in from as far afield as Malta to rent the first van Betty. She was in great demand for festivals and weeks away. One corporate hirer took her to Berlin and Paris for a product launch and another customer took er to the Hebrides for 3 weeks.
Anne’s Van’s opens for business for the 2018 at Easter weekend and are taking bookings now. Check out our hire page here.
