White Van Man - The Definitive Facts & Figures

Did you know there are 2.5 million white vans in the UK? That is 1 White Van to every 24 members of the UK population.

Where are the most White Van drivers? 1st - Essex; 2nd - Kent; 3rd Lancashire.

Who invented the term "White Van Man"? The term "White Van Man" was first coined by Sarah Kennedy on BBC Radio 2 back in 1997.

The average distance driven in a year by a White Van Man is 9,426 miles. That's the equivalent of driving the length of the country almost 13 and a half times!

£1,026 is the average value of contents in every van.

White Van drivers are a careful bunch! 68% of drivers have no insurance claims.

They are also intelligent - more than half of drivers are regular bookworms - and passionate - over 1 in 20 have seized the moment and had a "romantic engagement" in their van!

You would need 772 White Vans to move 1 billion Cheesy Wotsits.
