Peugeot Supplies Specialist Van Fleet to Guide Dogs
Added: 17 July 2019
Peugeot has a long-standing relationship with the UK charity, Guide Dogs. They provide guide dogs and a wide range of services for people with sight loss and recently, they started to replace the vehicles used to transport the dogs.
The charity’s aim is to ensure that by 2020, all of the vehicles they use to transport dogs and handlers will be replaced by specially-adapted, multi-purpose Peugeot vans. These include Peugeot Expert and Expert Crew Van conversions and around 40 all-new Peugeot Partner Crew Vans.
40 Expert Long Professional models have been delivered to date. 29 of these have been converted to transport up to eight puppies at a time, during the early months of the puppies’ lives. The remaining vans are specially converted Crew Van models designed to carry up to four dogs, as well as their professional guide dog mobility instructors and eventually their partners, during their training programme.
Karen Mumford, Operations Support Manager at Guide Dogs said: “Dog welfare is paramount to Guide Dogs, so we are delighted that these vans will help us transport our life-changing dogs in comfort and safety, enabling us to reach more people with sight loss with our services.”
“The versatility of the Peugeot Expert range and Crew Van in particular is perfectly demonstrated by the vans we have delivered to Guide Dogs over the past few months,'' commented Groupe PSA Fleet Director, Martin Gurney, “We are delighted to be extending our relationship with Guide Dogs and to help them develop the best means of transporting their trainers, service users and dogs safely and efficiently.”
