Wates Group adds 60 Volkswagen vans to its Property Services fleet

Wates Property Services, part of the Wates Group, specialising in property maintenance and zero-carbon retrofit services, has added 30 all-electric ID. Buzz Cargo vans and 30 Transporter vans to its fleet of maintenance vehicles.

Wates selected the ID. Buzz Cargo to help reduce its fleet emissions footprint, with an electric range of 254 miles1 that makes sustainable mobility simple, while allowing access to properties in the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone.

The all-electric van offers a payload volume of 3.9m2 and a maximum loading width of 1.7m, height of 1.3m and length of 2.2m, providing business-ready practicality for Wates and their customers.


Wates also required a fleet of larger vehicles that combine class-leading payload, space and flexibility for larger jobs. The award-winning Transporter offers a 1,185kg payload, setting the benchmark for effective and reliable vans that get the job done.

Craig Cavanagh, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “Wates Property Services selected our ID. Buzz Cargo and Transporter panel van due to their outstanding abilities as a work tool, paired with great comfort and flexibility for the drivers as they support their network of properties. We’re confident that the vehicles will exceed the expectations of the finance team, with low-running costs making it the perfect partner for the whole business.”

David Morgan, Executive Managing Director of Wates Property Services, said: “Since 2021, we have introduced 55 fully electric vehicles, replacing some of our older diesel vans. Our latest investment into electrifying our fleet highlights our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint in our operations and the work we do on behalf of our customers to support a thriving planet.”
