Ford has extended its successful Ford Approved programme beyond passenger cars to commercial vehicles, and defines a new way to source quality pre-owned Ford vans and pickups.
Each Ford Approved commercial vehicle is backed by rigorous 160-point quality verification, includes service history and carries a 12-month warranty and Ford Roadside Assistance.
To qualify for Ford Approved status, vans must be Ford models owned by the dealer, be less than five years old and have covered less than 100,000 miles. They are sold on a 14-day/500 mile exchange programme, as well as with seven-day drive-away insurance.
A Ford Approved van locator can be accessed directly from www.ford.co.uk and allows customers to search through the UK Ford dealer network stock to find the exact model and specification required.
“Ford Approved offers commercial vehicle customers complete peace of mind,” said Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain. “The Ford-backed scheme assures buyers that the vehicle they are purchasing is of suitable quality complete with warranty and roadside back-up.”
