Ford launches Transit24 van maintenance service

Part of Ford’s on-going investment into the UK’s largest dealer network, Transit24 will help to minimise vehicle downtime and reduce whole life costs for Ford customers.

More than 90 of Ford’s 200-plus commercial vehicle authorised repair sites in their UK network will be identified as ‘Transit24 Dealers’ to provide maintenance and repair for all commercial vehicles.

The Transit24 sites will provide priority treatment for all urgent work and aim to complete vehicle-off-road repairs on the same working day, or within 24 hours.

Each Transit24 site employs Ford-trained technicians and offers specialised workshop equipment, tools and training, and can look after all service, maintenance and warranty work.

They will offer while-you-wait servicing to suit the customer, including late night appointments at least once a week, and will respond to online service booking requests within 20 minutes.

Collection and delivery of vehicles can be arranged and every vehicle leaves the dealership washed and ready for work. Fleet National Pricing for 25-plus fleets ensures the best prices for routine servicing and fixed-content jobs.

Other benefits include using only genuine Ford parts, whether in stock or delivered to the dealership by 9am the next day, and a sophisticated internet-linked vehicle diagnostics system.

Other dedicated back-up from Ford includes an electronic recalls programme and the support of a dedicated team at the Ford Fleet Service Centre.

The service applies to all current new Ford commercial vehicles, such as the popular Ford Transit and the Transit Custom van.

The Ford Transit Custom van, which holds the title International Van of the Year 2013, was intentionally designed to feel much more car-like inside.

This means Ford has introduced some of the technology that first appeared in the new Ford Focus including its SYNC voice control, with text message read-out and SOS call support, plus an MP3 player and Smartphone connectivity.

For commercial use, the Ford Transit Custom van in business specification offers practicality with its rear sliding doors and offers a storage area three metres in length boost.

The Ford Transit Custom and other commercial vans are available from Perrys Ford Dealerships, based in Aylesbury and High Wycombe.
