I went to look at an ex-hire T6 Ocean the other day - it is a 2016 on Autotrader for 38k.

Cheapest T6 Ocean I have seen by miles!

Didn't fancy it in the end because it needed a few cosmetic bits but a cheap van out there for someone who doesn't mind a few scuffs or who has young clumsy kids!

By the way they have 3 for sale but the 2014 and 2017 ones where not at Blackburn - they are still being hired I think...

If it's just cosmetic and still under warranty you can get the work done...as long as it's reasonable items that's should last.

57k miles too. Out of warranty? 3 years worth of inexperienced hands laid upon it every week. But fairly priced. Unlike someone we know in London....

Everything worked so wasn't a warranty issue - just had some scratches inside and out etc.

There's nothing wrong with ex hire vans. I only found out our beach was an ex hire by chance. Other than some scratched paint work everything was in good order and no worse, or better, than normal second hand ones on the market.
Like stated above, if you have kids or not ocd about things it's probably a good buy.

I would be less concerned with a Beach than an Ocean. There is so much that can be messed with in the Ocean. I loaned mine to a friend and they kindly topped up the water tank with diesel before returning it.....
