For more than a few good reasons, electricians love the Ford Transit van. It's long been one of the most highly recommended work vans on the road, thanks in part to its reputation for a dependable performance and job-friendly utility. Add in the ability to customize your Transit fleet with a number of different options and you can see why the Transit has become a trade favorite.
Why Electricians Love the Ford Transit
What an electrician needs in a solid work van varies from business to business. However, both commercial and residential electricians can agree on one thing: the 2017 Ford Transit van is an excellent addition to the company lineup. With so many configurations on the market, you'll find the perfect Ford Transit for your electrical work. Three different gross vehicle weight ratings - Transit 150, 250, and 350 - handle increasing loads of electrical cable and on-the-job tools. With the extended-length body and the long-wheelbase chassis, you can stock 487.3 cubic feet of maximum space - more than in any competitor - with enough supplies for weeks' worth of work. The extra room gives you extra time to spend with clients instead of returning to restock.
Upfitting is the Ford Transit van's specialty. For electricians, that typically means that it's easy to hang shelves and hooks along the van walls to neatly arrange your supplies. Organize multiple spools of wire so that you always have what you need close at hand, or also add secure storage bins for smaller items. That way, you can stow your test meter and cable cutters where you always know where to find them. The endless number of options mean that the 2017 Ford Transit will adapt to your needs, not the other way around.
An electrician's day can be long, but the 2017 Ford Transit van aims to make it feel shorter. With so many utility features on hand, your Transit helps you perform better on the job and can even save you time in the long run. When you're crossing a windy bridge, the Side Wind Stabilization feature automatically kicks in to make sure you maintain a straight course despite heavy gusts. Properly equipped, the Transit van can tow up to 7,500 pounds. This can come in handy on commercial jobs, when your supplies are too much for even the Transit's class-leading cargo hold.
The 2017 Fort Transit van isn't your grandpa's work truck. Whether you're cruising from local job site to local job site or high-tailing it across the state to work on a string of retail stores, the Transit front seats deliver first-rate comfort. Both front seats support passengers of all shapes and sizes, with head and leg room to spare. The Ford Transit van also offers Sync 3 infotainment - the same system found in the classy Focus and high-revving Mustang GT. Its seamless smartphone entertainment means you can make a hands-free call to the office and get an update on the day's job list - without ever taking your eyes from the road ahead. Navigation is equally essential. It gets you where you need to go and helps you make sure you're never late for a house call.
The Ford Transit proves itself again to be one of the most reliable, most customizable, and most comfortable options for electricians, regardless of their specialty.
