Back in August CPD Bodies have recently under gone an audit to enable us to join the FORD QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier Program)
The scheme will require converters to meet standards on quality control.
The scheme – which follows the announcement last week of Ford’s new converter recognition scheme – is intended to ensure the quality of converted vehicles on offer.
Vitally, it will see participants required to offer a warranty for the conversion to match Ford’s own warranty when it comes to mileage and duration. Converters also need to have adequate liability insurance and are required to meet standards on manufacture and quality control.
Participants must also prove their converted vehicles have followed Ford’s Body and Equipment Mounting Manual (BEMM) and that they follow quality control processes.
We are one of the first seven QVM converters to join the scheme as- CPD Bodies LTD– which specialises in all builds;
“The introduction of more QVM converters will give buyers the peace of mind that the specialist they are buying from is accredited by Ford,” said Dave Petts, Ford Transit product manager. “The Transit range now offers customers an even wider choice of vehicles to meet their individual business needs.”
