Ford offers 10 reasons why vans are coming back

The global automotive and mobility company, Ford, has offered explanation on the return of van as a preferred vehicle for artisans since the 1950s, reports ITRealms.

Recall that plumbers, electricians, and the like use vans to transport their tools and goods, and when families move home they call “The Man with a Van”.

ITRealms gathered that Africa’s vast distances and rough roads demand durability and toughness, noting that in South Africa, for instance, if someone needs something moved the appropriate thing to do is to generally ask a friend with a van or bakkie.

Also, ITRealms gathered that the Ford Transit, has become one of the best-selling vans in the world, since 1965 and is now available in South Africa in several new and exciting configurations with added features.

Officials confided in ITRealms that if you are looking for space, the Ford Transit Van has 15.1 cubic meters of cargo space in the back, which is 15,100 litres or the space to pack in 629 grocery shopping bags.

In addition, ITRealms reports that there is Ford Transit Custom Sport, which is available with all the same driving technology found in a luxury sedan. From Ford’s hands-free SYNC 2entertainment centre, lane-keeping alert, parking sensors, cruise control, rear-view camera, and electronic stability control, the Ford Transit Custom Sport could be the new ride for your family.

In furtherance to convince potential customers, Ford outlined 10 best features of Ford Transits including the limo, snowboarder, the artist, coffee shop, surfer dude, caterer, animal rescuer, food truck, pet stylist and mobility van. 

Ford emphasised as follows:
1.    The Limo
Stretch limousines are out of date. So Chicago-based Windy City Limousines converted their Ford Transit into a plush ride equipped to carry 13 passengers in luxury and style – with a wooden floor, black leather couch-style seating and two flat-screen televisions.
2.    The Snowboarder
This shred-ready Ford Transit is modified with a custom boot dryer, snowboard rack, tuning bench and portable DJ booth to make snowboarding even more fun for its riders. “It’s an absolute dream of a creative hub that we can do anything out of,” says So-Gnar CEO Pat Milbery.
3.    The Artist
The first Ford Transit buyer in the United States, ZL Feng, is an art professor and skilled artist who uses his van to transport his art to museums, galleries, art shows and art buyers’ homes. 
4.    The Coffee Shop
What better way to bring the people coffee than with a stylish mobile coffee shop. The Grateful Grail mobile coffee shop cruises around Baltimore, visiting local music festivals and events. Brothers and Grateful Grail owners Brian and David Seward customized the van themselves.
5.    The Surfer Dude
Champion surfer Izzy Paskowitz and his Surfers Healing team use a Ford Transit to transport surfboards, beach gear and life jackets as they introduce kids with autism to surfing. Check out the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8WlKYTbNyw
6.    The Caterer
Catering and vans go hand in hand. The jumbo Ford Transit van, used by Park Place Caterers in Ford HQ’s back yard, is customized with a liftgate and inverter to power a refrigerator and hotbox – delivering deliciousness to the local community.
7.    The Animal Rescuer
Shultz’s Guest House uses its Ford Transit to transport orphaned dogs – sometimes from several states away – to a private farm in Dedham, USA, where they are safe from being euthanized until permanent homes are found for them. 
8.    The Food Truck
Everyone’s favourite kind of van. The Spread’s Ford Transit is a mobile deli – serving breakfast and lunch sandwiches, wraps and fresh-baked bagels.
9.    The Pet Stylist
Wag ’n Tails Mobile Conversions in Granger, USA, converts Ford Transit vans into fully self-contained mobile pet grooming studios, complete with full-size tubs, hydro-massage shampoo systems, grooming tables, blow dryers, vacuums and fridges.

10.  The Mobility Van
Eighty-six-year-old Forrest Baker explores the Pacific Northwest with the help of his specially modified Ford Transit, which includes a lift for his off-road wheelchair, high-visibility lights and bull guard. “Without a doubt, this is the finest purpose-built vehicle I have ever had the pleasure of owning,” Baker wrote to his Ford dealership where he has been a loyal customer for more than 45 years.
