What is an Ad Van?

An ad van is a branded van that drives around as a form of transit advertising – but takes your brand messaging to consumers rather than waiting for them to come to you. It is basically like having a fleet of mobile billboards. 

An ad van is usually manned by a single driver and carries branded portable billboard on the back of it, which can be viewed from either side of the vehicle. These mobile billboards have been around for a long time, they have stood the test of time. 

They are extremely popular amongst businesses looking to target a particular local area, or those looking to make an impact in a way that distinguishes them from their competitors. Sometimes as well as being visually impactful they also have audio systems so that music or messages can be played out to get your message across.  

Ad vans grew to mainstream popularity in the US in the 1980s and 90s, but with the advent of online advertising, their popularity has waned, however, don’t be mistaken into assuming that anything offline (or out-of-home, as marketers call it) is outdated – now that so much is done online only, taking your messaging out of mainstream channels and into a new space is a fantastic way to demonstrate your brand’s uniqueness.

Benefits of Ad Van Adverts

They are hugely beneficial for brands all over the world, for a myriad of reasons. The main benefits of these mobile billboards are: 

  • Specific Geographic Area Targeting - ad-vans usually service and travel around a locality specified by the brand licensing the advert. This may be the local area within which their product or service is offered, or an event happening that is likely to attract their target customer. If you’re not a brand that only services a specific region or area geographically, don’t panic: ad-vans can still work for you. Audience demographics can be researched into as part of a wider customer and market research piece, and the Billboard Advertising team are able to help you conduct this research and draws insights and intelligence from it – just let us know, and we’ll get to work!
  • The Opportunity for Guerilla Marketing - ad-vans and their mobile billboards drive on public roads and so there are lots of places that can be targeted that may otherwise be expensive to advertise at or within. Festivals, exhibitions and large events can all charge tens of thousands of pounds in sponsorship and marketing costs, but with some clever ‘guerilla marketing’ targeting, you can make your brand messaging visible at these events without the hefty pricetags. Driving or parking ad-vans around these events can expose audiences to your branding without being officially involved or endorsed. The costing is considerably cheaper and as a fresh approach, your branding is much more likely to be recognised and celebrated for doing something different and innovative, and not being slotted in amongst all the other exhibitors and logos in such a crowded marketplace! Standing out is a good thing: so take advantage and thing about ‘doing different’ and place your advertisement somewhere unique.  
  • Easy to amend - traditional advertising in print and online is often made live for a set period of time and cannot be edited or changed once ‘up’. Ad vans, however, can be dressed and re-dressed as many times as you like, with their destinations changed or messaging accompanied by other promotional activity as much or as little as you like.

The cost of hiring an ad van relies on many different factors, including:

  • The duration of hire - how long do you want your mobile billboards advertising campaign to run for? A day? Week? Month?  
  • The transport requirements (do you want it to drive/just be parked somewhere?) - you may be looking for high impact areas or even parks and shopping centres. 
  • Size of the vehicle and its billboard.

Frequently Asked Questions about Mobile Advertising

  1. Do mobile billboards on vans have a high impact compared to other forms of outdoor advertising?” They are surprisingly effective, although quantifying the effectiveness of mobile billboard advertising is more difficult to gauge – for example with train station ads you can say how many passengers use that form of transport – but with vans on ads you can’t be certain how many people see them. That said, you can be confident when driven or parked in busy areas they will be seen by lots of people.
  2. What other forms of outdoor advertising do mobile billboard advertising work well with?” It can be combined with other out of home options, but large format posters, such as 48 sheets are often good to support these mobile billboards and help to reinforce a strong brand image.
