A new Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Authorised Repairer and Used Van Centre has opened in Leeds designed to assist customers with repairs and MOT tests as well as offer an extensive range of approved used vans.
Customers will be able to buy used vans from the Leeds Van Centre through the approved used van scheme – Das Welt Auto (DWA). The Van Centre features two used vehicle showrooms alongside an external display. The workshop also has eight work bays as well as Class 7 MOT and four wheel alignment available.

About Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
Over 60 years ago, the first Transporter arrived in the UK, creating a blueprint which others would follow: a van which gets the job done efficiently and reliably. Today, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles offers a diverse model range – from the compact Caddy, through the evergreen Transporter and sturdy Crafter panel vans, dropsides and tippers, to the Caravelle passenger carrier, California camper and the Amarok pick-up. The vehicles are as versatile and dependable as Volkswagens have always been, but now they’re more spacious, more comfortable and safer than ever.
Every van also comes backed by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ ‘Working With You’ promise. It’s a commitment to work in partnership with businesses, providing them with the best products and aftersales support, whether they’re buying one or a thousand vans. For more information visit
