Leading used van dealer in the UK, Blackwood, South Wales

Who we are

The family firm of Capels started as a dealership for Standard and Bedford vehicles in 1945.  Now a freelance dealership, we moved to our present 4 acre site in Fair View garage, Pengam South Wales in 1967 where we now provide a range of commercial services as well as van and 4x4 sales.

Our sales team have wide experience in driving just about any vehicle you might be interested in.  This would be true for vans, 4x4s right through to pickups and tippers; all of which we supply at Capels.  As an example, one of us has probably driven the model of 4x4 you're considering over both the smooth stuff and the rough stuff, and so we'll be able to tell you from experience how that vehicle would perform for you.

Colin is our main van man having driven bought and sold everything from a Go Kart to an Articulated Lorry !  He will put you right on the good and quirky bits of just about any van or truck you care to name.  He'll even provide you with a cup of tea or fresh coffee in our comfy, purpose-built showroom. In our Admin Office, Sandra will steer you through the finance, the paperwork and the warranties with such ease that you'll find it to be one of the fun parts of buying your vehicle from us.

What we do

We specialise in supplying you with the vehicle of your choice,  New or used, as well as a fully comprehensive commercial services. This may be a vehicle from our extensive stock, or one we have found that matches what you have asked us for.  We'll search for the vehicle you want at no extra cost to you.

How we can help you in 3 steps

  1. By providing you with 40 years' worth of experience, and an extensive knowledge of any vehicle you might be considering. We will advise you without bias and without pressure whether it be sales or repairs.
  2. By providing you with a reliable, 'honest' vehicle. Our used stock is mainly what the trade calls 'second stage', not third or beyond. We know the origin and service history of all the vehicles we supply, and ensure that they come to you with an HPI, service, and full condition report. If any of these features are not present with a vehicle, it's reflected in the price.
  3. By providing you with best value, whether you're buying new or used. Best value isn't always the cheapest option available, but with us, it usually works out that way
