If you are looking to buy a used van – we have currently got over 500 vehicles in stock – and yes, that does include many Ford Transit Custom vans. Every single one of our vehicles is only 15-18 months old and still under their original manufacturer’s warranty.

You can even take it to your trusted mechanic to give it a thorough inspection; we’re confident they’ll be pleased.

At any stage of the process we’ll be on hand to provide advice and guidance with zero pressure for you to buy. Choose it! Try it! Buy it!

Now that you know what Hertz Rent2Buy can do, let’s continue with our review of the Ford Transit Custom.


When you see a Ford Transit Custom for sale - reliability is sure to be at the top of your list of concerns. There would be nothing worse than disappointing your customers because of a broken down van. But rest easy, Ford have gone to great lengths to ensure the Transit’s reliability and have extensively tested the Ford Transit Custom.

Ford have put the Transit through a 680,000 mile real-world reliability and durability test. 310,000 of those miles were done by actual Ford customers in their daily jobs. The Ford Transit certainly wasn’t wrapped in cotton wool for this test.

If you see a Ford Transit Custom for sale, you can be sure of its reliability. Ford’s aim was to ultimately ensure that your work is entirely unaffected by reliability issues. When you combine that with a Ford Transit Custom that still has its manufacturer’s warranty, you can rest easy.


The Ford Transit Custom isn’t just about reliability and looking good while you’re working either. It’s got brains and brawn to back up those good looks too.

The Transit Custom boasts class topping space between its wheel arches, meaning you’re able to fit more in the back. There are double cab variations available too.

With a strong range of engines on offer (and even an automatic gearbox), long wheel base or short wheel base options and a huge number of accessories such as side storage, roof racks and netting for cargo – the Ford Transit Custom is truly one of the most versatile vans on the market today.

Fort Transit Custom Expert Review: Hertz Rent2Buy’s Verdict

In this Ford Transit Custom review we’re going to share what it’s like to live with the van on a day-to-day basis.

Handling, Performance, Comfort and Technology

There are very few vans that offer the same level as that of a car in terms of handling, strong engines and comfort. The Ford Transit Custom does just that. The interior feels much like a car when you sit inside and brings the same level of comfort, technology and equipment with it.

Maintenance and Running Costs

Our Ford Transit Custom review wouldn’t be complete without a look at the maintenance costs. Ford offers a 100,000 mile warranty with their vans and has over 105 Transit Centres where you can have your vehicle maintained. Fuel economy for the Ford Transit Custom is between 44.1-46.3mpg depending on which model you opt for and with service intervals, each 30,000 miles or two years – your running costs are very manageable.
