IF you need your welfare van to provide messing facilities, then look no further than the latest off-the-peg conversion from Clarks Vehicle Conversions.
At under £10,000, Clarks ain’t messing! The welfare conversion comes complete with standard messing facilities and a toilet plus a whole range of accessories from a side camera to a complete tow bar step system. The new welfare van is lighter by 150kg, less costly to run and has higher safety standards than predecessors, which meet VCA standards, says Clarks.
David Healy, commercial and finance manager of Clarks Vehicle Conversions, said:
“Our customers told us that they wanted a lighter and cheaper welfare vehicle so we’ve listened and acted on it. “We are delighted to launch our new welfare conversion that not only weighs less than its predecessor but at £9999 it is a very competitive price for a fully-loaded conversion.” The welfare vehicle comes with a host of essential accessories including health and safety must-haves.
- a first aid kit,
- eye wash station,
- grab handles and
- Chapter 8 livery.
“In particular we wanted to include a side camera because blind spot detection is high on the agenda for fleet operators whose priority is to keep road users safe,” explained Mr Healy.
The conversion will be available with seven seats on all makes and models of van, and crucially they will be built according to Type Approved standards set by the VCA. Clarks Vehicle Conversions was the first company to achieve National Small Series Whole Vehicle Type Approval from the VCA in 2013 for its welfare conversions across a number of base vehicles. The drive-away welfare conversion comes with 12 months nationwide aftersales care. Clarks Vehicle Conversions has a long history in the conversion industry which stretches back to 1985 when they built their first welfare van for the railway sector but much has changed in the last 30 years.
