My next bit of big news is that I have bought a new bigger van; a Ford Transit Custom. This brand new, larger van gives me much more space for all my equipment, is much more ergonomically friendly than the smaller van, all of which leads to quicker, more efficient working.
I bought the van online from Bristol Street Ford Dealership in Stoke-On-Trent, they were most helpful and professional in their dealings with me. They gave me a great price on the new van as it was on last year’s autumn plate and the also gave me a more than generous part exchange on my old van. So I was very happy with the deal.
As I said, the new van gives me much more space for all my equipment and to make it work in an efficient manner I have sectioned it out with ply boarding and put in metal shelving. All this makes the equipment I have very accessible allowing easy access to every item so it can be removed from the van and replaced with very little effort.
I think that you will agree that the van now looks and is very smart and professional looking. Incidentally, the sign painting was done by Paul Lambourn at The Sign in Wimbish: 1 The Stables, Pinkneys Manor, Wimbish, Saffron Walden CB10 2XD – 01799599996
