What’s a Ford Transit One-Stop?

Ford Transit One-Stop Tipper

A One-Stop Shop For Specialist Vehicles – Ford Transit Van Hire

When browsing commercial vehicle, van hire and van sales listings, you may have seen (Ford) Tippers, Dropsides and Lutons described as ‘One-Stop’, but what does that mean and why is it important?


Chassis Cabs, Skeletons & Coachbuilders

If your business needs more from a commercial vehicle that a regular panel van can provide, it’s common to see companies buy chassis cabs or skeletal chassis cabs – which, as the names suggest have nothing but the bare essentials behind the cab. A simple chassis serving as a bare bones frame upon which businesses can commission all manner of customisations to be built in order to fulfil their needs.

In practice, this meant that businesses could get pretty much anything they needed, for every job imaginable, but the downside of this is the wait, the extra expense and the ‘variable quality’. Ford Transit One-Stop variants aim to tackle all three of these challenges.

  • Ordering a brand new chassis cab cab may, or may not involve a wait, but once it’s delivered, it has to be handed over the to the coach builder, which definitely will involve a wait.
  • Time is money and the vehicle starts depreciating from the moment you take possession, but can’t make you money until the modifications have been finished. This is in addition to the extra expense of work itself.
  • Finally, not all third party coach-builders are created equal. Naturally, some will do a first rate job, but if you’re unlucky enough to engage the service of one of the others, you may end up with a poor, unsafe, shoddy or dangerous build, with all the additional headaches that come with it.


Ford Transit One-Stop Vehicles – Cut Out The Coach-builder!

The three problems highlighted above have been neatly sidestepped to a certain degree with the introduction of Ford Transit One-Stop commercial vehicles.

The name One-Stop is a shortening of ‘one stop shop’ and relates to a range of commercial vehicles from Ford where they add the Luton Box, flatbed or tipping bed to their chassis in the factory, so your vehicle rolls off the production line with everything you need.

This approach saves you time, money and worry as getting what would usually be third party customisations built in factory allows the business user to get their vehicles on the road faster and with the reassurance of knowing that their Ford Transit One-Stop is built properly and is fully backed by the manufacturer.


At Westwood, we’re happy to source the full range of Ford Transit One-Stop models for you and your business. To save you even more time, we can also arrange for your new vehicles to arrive with accessories like tow bars, beacons and chapter 8 stickering to meet your business needs, so all you need to do is drive.

Just one more reason to Look no further and choose Westwood for your commercial vehicle needs.
