Vanaways has teamed up with converter CoolKit to provide a one-stop shop for temperature-controlled vans.

The partnership allows operators to use Vanaways’ ordering system – in conjunction, if required, with CoolKit’s online configurator for insulated body options – to create a refrigerated van.

CoolKit-converted vehicles will be offered by Vanaways’ retail sales division, which trades as Van Sales UK, as well as to larger fleet customers through its business development team. 

Vans of all makes are typically sourced direct from manufacturers, and will be fitted with insulated bodywork and refrigeration units at CoolKit’s manufacturing plant in Burnley, Lancashire.

Vanaways sales director Paul Cox said: “The partnership is yet another extension of our service to busy van operators. By working in partnership with CoolKit we aim to make the acquisition process for these specialist vehicles as quick and easy as possible, while ensuring that conversion work is carried out to a guaranteed high standard.”

CoolKit chief executive Rupert Gatty said: “Like Vanaways we pride ourselves on being an innovative, dynamic business. We’re both fully focused on quality, customer care and making the purchasing process as easy it can be. 

“Our recently launched online configurator is a perfect example of this ground-breaking approach.”
