With an enviable reputation for delivering the very best new and used commercial vehicles to clients across Wales the M4 Corridor, South West England, the Midlands and the rest of the UK – LCV dealer David Spear Commercial Vehicles is ready to cement their market leading status with a new site in Cardiff.

“With an aim to be regarded as the market leading van dealership in the UK, the recent acquisition of the South Wales Van Centre site will help us strengthen our brand, build on our already outstanding reputation for expertise, and continue to provide excellent service courtesy of a team of people who truly care,” said Owner David Spear.

The company’s recent acquisition of the Welsh capital’s South Wales Van Centre site forms part of an ambitious growth strategy, which will see them target key areas throughout the UK as well as identify new locations for business development.

“This is an exciting time during our 30-year history as we seek to expand the business into new markets. The M4 Corridor and Cardiff are key areas for our business and the growth in the LCV market over the last four years reflects the commercial opportunities accessible in and around the capital. We have an ambitious business plan in place and this acquisition allows us a much bigger presence in what we regard as a key market for selling commercial vehicles,” concluded David.
