We are delighted to announce our new Van Store brand in Birtley, County Durham, is now open.

Van Store Birtley is the beginning of a very exciting journey for our new brand and the first one to be opened in the UK. With so many new facilities, we are pleased to be expanding our services.

The new site is located next to Evans Halshaw DAF, on Drum Road, Barley Mow, just minutes from junction 63 of the A1 and will offer a new approach to Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) purchasing.

You have the option to browse 150 used vans, tippers and Lutons and our dedicated LCV professionals will be on hand to advise the best option to suit your needs and arrange a test drive for you.

Alongside the on-site used vans, you also have the opportunity to browse through our group stock and access over 3000 LCV's, including Ford used vans, Mercedes used vans and Volkswagen used vans. You can also discuss used car finance with us if that is something that takes your interest.

This new facility will have SMART and paint repairs facilities, an MOT centre and valeting services. You will also be able to take advantage of complimentary refreshments and wi-fi, so you can take your time and browse at your leisure.

Other fantastic features at Van Store Birtley include:

  • Parts sales
  • Tachograph facilities
  • Tail Lift repairers, maintenance and LOLER testing
  • Hydraulic and curtain/sheet repairs
  • Tyre sales and fitment
  • Contract maintenance agreements
  • Compliance management

Alongside these features, take advantage of the Sell Your Van service, which allows you to sell your van to Van Store Birtley for a great price.

With Evans Halshaw Van Store, we guarantee to pay more as we cut out the middlemen and you will be selling directly to us. It just takes a few quick steps to sell your car to us - we will give you a free online valuation when you give us your vehicle details, send you an email to book an appointment and we will pay the money direct into your account.

Just because you are selling your van to us, does not mean it is necessary to buy one, although we would love your custom, we do not pressure our customers to do both.

The opening of Van Store Birtley has brought 10 new jobs to the area and applicants are welcome to apply for Customer Service Assistant and Sales Specialist roles. The Birtley site is also a Renault-authorised repair centre, offering service, parts and specialist repairs not only for Renault, but any make of LCV.

We identified a need for a specialist LCV store in the North East as there is a large number of operators in the region who could benefit from our LCV expertise and our class-leading online presence. We are delighted this flagship store will provide fantastic job opportunities in the area."
