Finding the right refrigerated van for your business can be challenging with so much choice out there nowadays. Doing your research before leasing or buying a new van, of course, is important, as is working with a specialist service that understands your needs.
One of the most popular vehicles at FridgeXpress at the moment is the Mercedes Sprinter, a vehicle that is both versatile and robust and works for many different sectors that need to keep their goods chilled as they transport them from A to B.
The Sprinter is not a new model for Mercedes and first hit the roads back in 1995. Its more recent iteration is probably the most fuel-efficient and low emission van that the company have produced in the last 25 years.
Here we take a closer look at what makes this van so popular and why business owners across the UK like it so much.
What is the Mercedes Sprinter?
Mercedes advertise the Sprinter as the ‘most adaptable panel van’ on the market today and we can certainly back that up at FridgeXpress where we’ve converted many to freezer and fridge vans over the years.
The vehicle comes in 9 body sizes, 4 body lengths and 3 roof heights as well as 3 different wheelbases. Versatility is built into every aspect of the Sprinter at all stages of the manufacturing process.
The latest models of the Sprinter are comfortable and easy to drive and there’s plenty of space for a wide variety of businesses, whether you’re transporting food and drink, pharmaceuticals, flowers or something else. In recent years, Mercedes have paid a lot of attention to introducing new technology that makes driving safer and more efficient. This includes their innovative ADAPTIVE ESP® handling control system and Crosswind Assist which is added as standard in all models nowadays.
When it comes to fuel economy, packages such as BlueEFFICIENCY Plus helps keep costs under control for businesses of all sizes. The Sprinter was also one of the first vans to fully comply with EU emissions standards, something which is important if you carry out deliveries in Europe.
Why It Works Well as a Refrigerated Van
With a spacious load space, the Sprinter is ideally suited for conversion as a refrigerated or freezer van. It’s also perfect if you need a van that has dual temperature compartments. This is one of the reasons that it remains a popular choice with our customers and works brilliantly for a range of different business models. In particular, the Mercedes Sprinter is ideal for catering businesses of all types.
