Nissan’s ‘one-stop-shop’ tailors non-standard vehicles
Nissan has launched a ‘one-stop-shop’ to make it easy for fleets to order non-standard versions of its range of cars, 4x4s and vans.
Fleets can now specify all the equipment – ranging from beacons to hand-wash units – they want fitted to any Nissan vehicle to ensure it precisely meets their special needs. All work is carried out by Nissan’s approved specialists, and the vehicles are delivered fully equipped and ready to get down to work.
Police forces, construction companies, local authorities, security companies and government departments such as the Environment Agency all have vehicles specially tailored in this way, and over 500 Nissan cars, 4x4s and LCVs already go through this ‘one-stop-shop’ facility each year.
Customers don’t lose time having the work done after delivery and the facility also ensures that the work is done to consistently high standards, using parts and equipment which are totally compatible with Nissan vehicles and Nissan quality.
The vehicles are delivered directly to Nissan's chosen conversion partner, where equipment such as beacons, bulkheads, communications radios, hand-wash units, rear window security guards, roof racks, special off-road tyres, storage systems, strobe light bars, tow bars etc can all be fitted.
To provide a total service, Nissan can also livery vehicles to meet the customer’s requirements. They are then completed at a central PDI centre and delivered to the customer.
Dave Murfitt, Nissan’s Fleet Sales Director said: "Many of our fleet customers are already making use of this service, and find that it gives them a vehicle perfectly equipped to do the job, and saves them time and guarantees quality. As our range of commercial vehicles continues to expand, this facility will become increasingly important, as we will secure an even broader customer base requiring special vehicles."Published 28 June 2003
