As part of the forthcoming CV Show at the NEC in Birmingham, from April 25 to 27, London Hire will be exhibiting a Ford Transit Lord Taverner accessible van conversion, which it has jointly refurbished for a Milton Keynes special needs school, alongside a group of industry suppliers.
The eight year old vehicle, which will be exhibited on The Cogent Seating stand, located at 5C140 in Hall 5, will feature as part of its refurbishment a PLS underfloor tail-lift, a full set of Cogent seats together with NMI Safety Systems quick release millennium legs, London Hire designed Camira Fabric moquette and Koller Engineering wheelchair equipment, all kindly donated by each company for the project.
The vehicle will have also had all bodywork repairs undertaken by Cambridge Motor Group and will feature brand new Lord Taverner livery and associated company logos.
Initially based on an idea from PLS, who wanted to donate a brand new tail lift to a worthy organisation as part of the company’s celebration of trading for 25 years, calls were made and additional donations were agreed, totalling over £12,000 worth of brand new products, to give the vehicle a new lease of life.
Representatives from all supporting companies will be on hand to demonstrate what each supplier has done on the vehicle, alongside details of the school which owns the vehicle. The minibus is one of a number of vehicles that make up the fleet.
