Anchor Vans – one of the leading vendors of used vans in the UK announces that expansion of its vehicle servicing department has begun. Building work is currently underway at the A4 Bath Road site due to the success of the Anchor Vans Ford-approved servicing and repairs service launched last year. The Ford-approved servicing is offered alongside sales of new and used vans of all makes and models. For more information on the expansion and latest Ford used van stock call 0118 9710 230 or go to

The expansion will add 6,000 square feet of workshop space. "We're moving the valeting department into the new building, freeing up space in the existing workshop for five additional ramps," explained Simon Joyce, Sales Director for Anchor Vans. "The addition of those ramps will make a big difference to our capacity, giving an extra 45 hours a day of servicing time which is over two hundred hours a week."

"We're very pleased to be able to expand our Ford-approved servicing provision," Simon continued. "Since its launch in 2009 it's been a great success and the demand is such that we need to expand. Not only is it good for our customers, the expansion means that we'll need more Ford-approved service technicians, bringing more employment for local people into the Reading area. Ultimately, the success of our Ford-approved servicing and repairs is bringing skilled jobs into the local area, which is something we're proud to be able to do for our community."
