FORD TRANSIT STILL TOP OF THE MOST STOLEN VAN LIST

HPI’s latest league table of the most commonly stolen vans confirms that the Ford Transit is still top of the thieves’ shopping list. But close behind are the Mercedes Sprinter and Mitsubishi L200.
“It’s not just van owners that need to be concerned about which vans are most commonly stolen; used van buyers also need to consider the risks,” explains Daniel Burgess, Managing Director for HPI. “Thieves will be looking to sell vans on to innocent buyers, so the general public and van dealers must be on their guard. Dealers who unwittingly buy a stolen van not only face losing the van and the money they paid for it, should it be returned to the van’s legal owner, but put their reputation on the line should they innocently sell on that van to a customer who then faces financial loss.”

HPI STOLEN VAN HIT RATES
Ford Transit 25%
Mercedes Sprinter 21%
Mitsubishi L200 13%
Nissan Primastar 4%
Peugeot Expert 4%
