Ford announces Qualified Vehicle Modifier scheme

Ford Transit 2017 Paneltex RefrigeratedCovering mainly refrigerated vehicles, tippers and people-carriers, Ford has introduced its new programme to accredit converters modifying Transit vans and chassis cabs, including Custom and Connect. The scheme is intended to ensure the quality of converted vehicles on offer.

It obliges participants to offer a warranty for the conversion to match Ford’s own when it comes to mileage and duration. Converters also need to have adequate liability insurance and are required to meet standards on manufacture and quality control. They must also show that their converted vehicles have followed Ford’s Body and Equipment Mounting Manual and follow quality control processes to the letter.

The first seven QVM converters to join the scheme are: Allied Vehicles, GM Coachwork and McElmeel Mobility Services, all of which cover wheelchair-accessible vehicles; CoTrim Conversions, which offers a range of Ford-based vehicles including crew van conversions; CPD Bodies, which specialises in all builds; Paneltex, covering multi-temperature, frozen and refrigerated conversions; and VFS, which manufactures a range of bespoke Ford conversions including tippers.

“The introduction of more QVM converters will give buyers the peace of mind that the specialist they are buying from is accredited by Ford,” said Dave Petts, Ford Transit product manager. “The Transit range now offers customers an even wider choice of vehicles to meet their individual business needs.”
