We’re delighted to present a highlights video from the What Van? Awards 2017 which took place on 13 December at The Brewery in London. 

The What Van? Awards are renowned as the most prized independent endorsements of excellence in the light commercial vehicle industry.

In 2016 the most influential title in the sector rubber stamped the outstanding performers in 14 crucial light commercial sectors as well as revealing the top dog – the winner of the prestigious What Van? 2017 LCV of the Year.

In addition, we also opened the doors to the What Van? Hall of Fame for the fourth time to usher in two more deserving entrants who, in their different ways, made exemplary contributions to the light commercial vehicle industry in the UK.

Following its successful and popular debut in 2015, we continued our reader-voted accolade for the third time, in the shape of the Van Converter Award. We asked you to choose the best LCV body builder or racking specialist from a 15-strong shortlist compiled by our expert panel.

This is a fundamentally important area of the LCV market so we are pleased to include it in our awards again.

Every year the panel of What Van?’s  staff draw on expertise accrued over decades to select the light commercial vehicles, services and innovations they believe most deserve a prize.

We’re not afraid to call it as we see it during the year so it’s good to be able to reward the best in the business and to highlight to an increasingly sophisticated and demanding industry the products and services we consider will serve our readership best.

Not everyone can be a winner and the bar continues to be raised in quality terms across all categories.

A special thanks goes out to our sponsors, Crystal Ball, FORS, Truckman and Trucksmith for their support.
