More than 100 Volkswagen Transporters are to join the fleet of mobile smartphone and tablet repair firm WeFix.
The company is to add eight new converted Transporters to its fleet every month, with the full quota reached by the end of 2019.
The vans have been designed and converted to meet WeFix’s specific commercial needs, with a purpose-built workshop including a fully electric fit-out allowing for repair equipment to be operated independently as well as a diesel heater for the winter months, and custom-built furniture that holds stock and specialised tools.
WeFix began with a single Transporter in 2014, and currently has 28 mobile repair workshops.
WeFix managing director Oliver Murphy said: “The Transporter is the perfect model for our business and the bespoke racking and conversion solutions accommodate all of our needs.
“The Transporters deliver on performance and reliability and the long wheelbase is ideal, providing a spacious interior to work in, while still being easy to manoeuvre around busy city centres and residential neighbourhoods.”
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles head of fleet David Hanna said: “We are delighted to be working alongside such an innovative company. WeFix is all about making customers’ lives easier which fits perfectly with our ‘Working With You’ brand promise.”
