We are delighted to announce we have extended the deadline to enter the Industry and Fleet categories in the prestigious What Van? Awards 2021 until midnight on 23 October, giving our readers more time to nominate the outstanding businesses, innovations and individuals they feel have made exceptional contributions to the light commercial community within the past year. 

With many businesses under pressure in the current trading environment, including those that have had to furlough staff as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we felt they deserved more time to demonstrate why they are worthy of the accolade of being judged the best in their field by our independent panel of experts.

These two pivotal categories complement the core Manufacturer Awards, chosen by our panel of judges, that recognise the best vehicles and products in all the key market segments. 

The 2021 Industry Awards categories are:

Aftermarket Accessories

Converter of the Year


Insurer of the Year

Leasing Company of the Year

Rental Company of the Year

Risk Management

Remarketing Company of the Year

Van Dealer of the Year

NEW Customer Service

NEW Technology 

The 2021 Fleet Awards categories are:

Fleet Manager of the Year

Green Fleet of the Year 

To conform with the physical distancing measures put in place during the Covid-19 crisis, this time we will be pioneering a virtual event but rest assured, we will continue to afford attendees the opportunity to network, reward and celebrate the success of their peers across crucial market sectors. 

The What Van? Awards are renowned as the most prestigious independent accolades in the UK’s light commercial vehicle industry.
