Kath and Martin Pumfrey, the proprietors of family-owned Dorset Windows Ltd, who run a fleet of four vans, have had one of their vans designed for their conservatory and bi-folding door installation service.

The new vehicle had to be a mobile workstation and office for one of their three fitting teams and reduce the need to do a lot of preparation work on homeowner’s premises.

“We wanted to ensure that our team and products were protected and safely transported and wanted to enhance the service to our customers,” said Martin Pumfrey.

“By designing the interior to take a secure carrying-frail, that would usually carry large frames on an external side rack, and creating work tops and better storage for the team’s equipment, the new van can be used as a mobile workshop when fitting installations.”

The challenge to build the vehicle was made to Horton Commercials Ltd on the Ferndown Industrial Estate. After a series of CAD drawings were produced, Horton Commercials Ltd adapted one of their 5m bed easy mover range, so that it would be able to accommodate the cladding products used.

As the team spend five days a week working from the vehicle, the cab includes phone charging points and Bluetooth, cameras, air conditioning and all the usual features to make life more convenient.

Dave Wolfenden, managing director of Horton Commercials said that he was delighted that the Dorset Windows vehicle makes it easier for the day to day installation work of the team.

He added, “Kath and Martin were very focused on the fact that a van is not ‘just a box on wheels,’ so we ensured that the interior design created an efficient tool for their business and with the colour scheme and graphics provided, the most cost effective form of advertising. Also with excellent aerodynamics, the large vehicle can return an impressive 35mpg.”
