What Year Is the Best Ford Transit Connect Van for Small Businesses?

In today’s fast-paced market, every aspect of a business is going mobile- including the modern office space. Savvy entrepreneurs are asking themselves, why should they fork over a huge check for a brick office, when a mobile office offers so many benefits?

A mobile office brings business right to your customers’ door and offers you the freedom to work any place you choose, including while traveling.

There are endless ways to create a mobile office, but one of the easiest places to start is with the Ford Transit Connect Van. Use as a traditional transport vehicle, or customize into the perfect mobile office. You’re only limited by your imagination. 

Why is the Ford Transit Connect Van good for business?

Ford had business in mind when it designed the Transit Connect Van. In addition to the comfort, safety features, and quality that you would expect from Ford, the Transit Connect also offers the benefit of full connectivity on the go.

A wireless phone charger lets you charge your electronic devices without the hassle of plugs or cords. Plus, optional FordPass Connect keeps you connected with in-vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to ten devices.

The smart design, side-wind stabilization system, and front-wheel drive make the Transit Connect drive with the maneuverability of a family car, instead of a large work vehicle. According to Forbes, “They’re eminently drivable. They also are a lot easier than traditional commercial vans for navigating city streets, tight delivery and work entrances, and traffic jams.”

Keep track of your workforce with optional Ford Telematics service on Transit Connect Vans. This service allows you to monitor the driving habits, and location of your employees at all times. So you’ll always know that everything is under control and business is running smoothly. 

Customize the perfect workspace

The Transit Connect is attracting attention from people in all areas of business because of the endless customizable options it offers. Use the Transit Connect as a traditional transport van, or as a mobile office space. It’s perfect for both. You can even customize it for personal use, into your dream camper. 

David McKinney, an app developer who was featured in Business Insider, took advantage of the customizability of the Transit Connect Van. He built a mobile office space, complete with a desk, comfortable work chair, and couch for brainstorms. Now, McKinney is able to work anywhere he chooses, including at the beach. 

Which model is best for my business?

The Ford Transit Connect comes in both a cargo van and passenger van model. The passenger van offers seating for up to seven, with full internet connectivity. Perfect for transporting employees to a job site and working on the go. 

On the other hand, the Transit Connect Cargo van offers a large back-space that can be customized into the perfect workspace for your business. For transporting merchandise, the cargo space is perfect as is, but with further customization, the space can be used for your specific needs.

Build a traditional desk work area, or use couches to create a comfortable and fully connected meeting space. With the Transit Connect Cargo van, the customizable possibilities are endless. 

Other model options include the XL or the XLT. The model and year you choose will depend on the features that are important to you, and your budget. Newer years will offer higher technology. Stop by the Ford website to compare Transit Connect models.

Whichever model you choose, they’re all great for business, as they all offer the size and tough construction that you’d want in a work vehicle.
