Shoppers visiting B&Q in Stockton will be given the opportunity to see the award-winning new Ford Transit Custom model thanks to a promotion organised in conjunction with Ford Motor Company and Jennings Ford, part of the Jennings Motor Group.

On Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th May, a marquee and Transit model display will be on site at the entrance of the DIY store located on Portrack Lane.

Customers will be able to speak to trained professionals about the Transit Custom model and the Ford Commercial vehicle range available at Jennings Ford’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough.

By registering details, shoppers will also be in with a chance of winning up to £200 worth of vouchers in a free prize draw, in addition to this any customers who purchase a new commercial van from Jennings Ford, ordered and registered between 21st and 29th June 2013, could also be in with a chance of winning up to £1000 worth of vouchers.

Alan Bailes, general commercial sales manager at the Middlesbrough dealership, said; “We wanted to organise a promotion to create awareness about the new, award-winning Transit Custom model and after exploring various avenues across the region, we identified B&Q’s DIY store in Stockton as the ideal retail outlet and target market for this.

“Throughout the two-day promotion, fully trained staff will be on hand to give professional advice about the new Transit Custom model and other models available in Ford’s competitively priced commercial range and arrange test drives, in addition to being given the opportunity to enter our free prize draw and be in with a chance of winning some vouchers.”

The new Ford Transit Custom became the fourth member of the Transit family to win the highly prized International Van of the Year 2013 award at the Hanover IAA Commercial Vehicle Show, in addition to receiving top honours after being awarded Best Medium Van at the 2013 Trade Van Driver Awards.

The all-new Ford Transit offers top load-carrying ability, including a number of innovative load space features, such as the load through hatch in the bulkhead for extra-long items and the integrated roof rack which can be folded away when not in use.

The model also benefits from the latest Ford technologies, including Lane Keeping Aid and Ford SYNC voice control and MP3/phone connectivity system.

Alan went on to say; “A choice of engine power levels, interior trims and equipment levels means there is a model to suit every business and budget.”

Five options available include the Transit Custom base model, Transit Custom Trend, Limited, Sport and ECOnetic.
