Key Reasons Why We Love Ford Vans:

  • Robust & Reliable:

    When it comes to durability and dependability, Ford vans lead the pack. Ford vans undergo rigorous testing and quality assurance measures to ensure they meet Ford’s high standards for performance and reliability. From extreme weather testing to simulated durability trials, Ford vans are put through their paces to ensure they can handle whatever the road throws their way. On top of that, Ford offers a diverse range of van models to suit various needs and preferences. From the compact Ford Transit Connect to the larger Ford Transit Custom, there’s a Ford van for every job and lifestyle.


  • Authentic & Innovative:

    Since the introduction of its first commercial vehicle, (the Model TT in 1917), Ford has remained at the forefront of innovation in the van industry. They’ve gone on to introduce iconic models such as the Ford Transit, revolutionising the way goods and people were transported. Ford vans are not only built to withstand the rigors of daily use but also incorporate cutting-edge technology to enhance safety and efficiency. Features such as Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, advanced driver-assistance systems, and fuel-efficient engine options make these vans a smart choice for modern drivers.


  • Customisable & Comfortable:

    We’re aware that one size or style doesn’t fit all when it comes to vans. Luckily, Ford offers a range of van models to suit various needs and preferences. From the compact Ford Transit Connect to the larger Ford Transit Custom, there’s a Ford van for every job and lifestyle. We’re sure of it. Ford vans are consistently rated highly for their comfort, interior quality, and user-friendly features. This makes them a preferred choice among van drivers. The ability to customise them to your taste is another added bonus.

  • Efficient & Affordable:

    In addition to their durability and versatility, Ford vans are also known for their fuel efficiency and affordability. According to fuel economy data compiled by the Department for Transport (DfT), Ford vans consistently achieve competitive fuel efficiency ratings compared to other models in their class. This helps businesses save on running costs. Plus, with competitive pricing and flexible leasing options, Ford vans offer excellent value for money. As a result, they’re a smart investment for businesses of all sizes.

 Why Choose a Flexi-Lease Ford Van?
