Helping you choose the right van for your business needs


We only partner with market leaders in their fields.

Refrigerated vans (or Reefers) fulfill the need of safely hauling sensitive goods and give you full control of your transportation needs regarding timing, schedule flexibility, temperature control and care of the goods you are moving. Vehicle-powered refrigeration units provide cooling capabilities for small van applications and offer an economical alternative for straight truck bodies up to 20 feet long. These refrigeration units are perfect for delivery vans, cargo trucks, and more. VanBuddy is delighted to work with a number of leading companies that can retrofit your van to
suit your business needs.

We work with absorption fridges, compressor refrigerators and many more. Any vans we reconfigure use an insulated airtight compartment to absorb heat and dissolve that heat outside the compartment to ensure the inside contents stay cool. Thus ensuring your payload is delivered to your customer in a fresh and timely manner.

We have partnered with global leaders and pioneers of mobile solutions, who enhance every vehicle they fit-out.


Our vetting process ensures we work with partners who constantly strive to better themselves. This applies to any products as well as advice on loading space concepts, work place organisation and ergonomics for increasing productivity in everyday use and overall handling, support and analysis.

Couldn’t have done any more

I could not recommend this company enough. Jim and his team looked after us so well while we were waiting for our van to arrive. They couldn’t have done more for us. If you are looking for a van go to Van Buddy.

Easy to deal with

Bought a second hand van from VanBuddy and it was great from start to finish. Easy to deal with. Van delivered to me in Limerick. For a six year old van it is immaculate and running great. Highly recommended that you use Van Buddy if you’re looking for a new van.

I’ll be back!!!

Did you ever get a pain in trying to get the right van, and maybe never actually succeed succeed in getting it? Look no further than Jim Costello and VanBuddy. From start to finish, I felt like this man was going to go to war for me. I warmed to his attitude , professionalism, and his ability to go that extra mile in securing what the customer wants. I now have the van I craved since last September, without any stress or anything else that goes with dealing in motor industry. Definitely worth a phone call for his persistence in every sector in motor dealing and to see you drive out the gate happy. As Arnie used to say: “I’ll be back”.
