Ford launches van crash repair network
01 June 2009
Ford's new approved repair outlets can cater for all sizes of Tranist
Ford has introduced a 45-strong UK-wide network of accredited light commercial accident repair centres.
They provide customers with a three-year warranty on repair work and a certificate guaranteeing that the vehicle has been returned to its pre-accident condition.
All staff are trained by Ford and the technicians employed by the garages have access to a selection of special tools and all the necessary equipment.
To obtain Ford accreditation, as a minimum each Ford Accident Repair Centre has to have a five tonne capacity lift, a repair jig that can handle even the biggest Transits, and a spray booth and oven that can take vehicles at least 3m high. It must also run at least one courtesy van and fit genuine Ford parts.
