The vans, comprising three Vivaro and two Movano models, will be used as mobile workshops by Tuntum’s field-based engineers on an everyday basis.

Specially adapted for use by Tuntum, the Vivaro and Movano vans feature technology including remote ultra-sonic alarms, vehicle trackers and rear parking cameras.

To enable their use as on-the-road workshops, each of them has also been fitted with equipment such as racking, a split charger relay with battery, voltage inverters, WISA deck flooring and hand wash dispensers.

Safestow systems and 3.0m lockable pipe tubes help to transport goods and materials, while Thatcham deadlocks ensure maximum security. To ensure driver and passenger safety, all vehicles are equipped with a first aid kit and fire extinguisher.

The Vauxhall vans were supplied by local dealership Pentagon Nottingham while custom liveries by Blueprint Nottingham and accessories and racking by AutoRoofs Automotive also helped to transform the vans.

“After exploring many different options we are very happy with the decision to upgrade our vans to the Vivaro and Movano models,” said Richard Renwick, Tuntum’s chief executive. “Their operational efficiency will enable us to provide the best possible service to our customers and the wider community.”
