Ford has extended its Ford Approved used vehicle programme to cover its range of commercial vehicles and pick-ups.

Each used vehicle comes with a 160-point quality verification check,  its service history and a 12 month warranty with roadside assistance.

To qualify for Ford Approved status, vans must be Ford models owned by a dealer, be less than five years old and have covered less than 100,000 miles.

They are sold on a 14-day/500 mile exchange programme, as well as with seven-day drive-away insurance.

“Ford Approved offers commercial vehicle customers complete peace of mind,” said Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain. “The Ford-backed scheme assures buyers that the vehicle they are purchasing is of suitable quality complete with warranty and roadside back-up.”
