Last year was an exciting year for Jansvans as we celebrated 50 years in business.

It was in October 1972 from humble beginnings that Jan & Effie Nicolson established the business from

the basement of their home at Viewfield Road Portree.

The “vans” being derived from the sale and repair of Caravans and Mobile Homes

The “Jan” from the initials of the co-founder John Alick Nicolson

Over the year we will be taking our loyal customers on a road trip of our proud history.
