Poplar Motors - High Quality Japanese Imported Camper Vans

We are a long established company established in 1966 - Primarily we import high quality Japanese Toyota Granvia mpv's, plus Toyota Hiace vans and convert them into campervans here in the UK.

They are all automatic transmission, petrol, 2 wheel drive  and are available as  high roof or elevating roofs.

Why do we use Japanese Toyota's as the base vehicle? Japan has snow and ice but instead of salt, chemicals are used on the roads! Salt is the main cause of rust on UK vehicles - The condition of Japanese imports is unbelievable, 10 year old cars look brand new underneath. Plus they are high spec with power steering, automatic transmission, twin air bags, have air conditioning, with electric windows, central locking . The Toyota's  are a superb vehicle being responsive, quiet, comfortable and reliable.

Japan is relatively small and highly populated, cars there tend to do fewer miles than in the UK plus, in general, the Japanese look after their cars far more meticulously. Also in Japan, they have a 'Shaken test', similar to our MOT test, but stricter; therefore it is costly to keep older cars on the road.

There's more

All our vans come with 12 months MOT test - 6 months warranty - Full service (including cam belt change) - Waxoyled underneath to prevent corrosion from the British weather.

Running costs: Insurance is typically between £200 and £300 depending on your address, age, etc. Road tax is currently £255 per year.
An annual service and MOT test by us is approximately £240 including VAT.

See the "Vehicles Sales" section for models available and "arriving soon" for vehicles due in but not yet converted.
