WeFix smartphone repairer adds Volkswagen Transporters to fleet

Mobile smartphone and tablet repair company WeFix is planning to add more than 100 Volkswagen Transporters to its fleet

Mobile smartphone and tablet repair company WeFix is planning to add more than 100 Volkswagen Transporters to its fleet by the 2019.

The company aims to add eight new converted Transporters to its fleet every month.

They feature a purpose-built workshop including a fully electric fit-out allowing for repair equipment to be operated independently as well as a diesel heater for the winter months, and custom-built furniture that holds stock and specialised tools.

Oliver Murphy, managing director of WeFix, said: “The Transporter is the perfect model for our business and the bespoke racking and conversion solutions accommodate all of our needs.

"The Transporters deliver on performance and reliability and the long wheelbase is ideal, providing a spacious interior to work in, while still being easy to manoeuvre around busy city centres and residential neighbourhoods.”

WeFix was founded in 2014 and used one Volkswagen Transporter featuring a hand-built interior. Today, its fleet of 28 converted mobile repair workshops cover 78% of the UK.

In less than five years, WeFix has grown from carrying out around 50 repairs per month to a current monthly average of 2,000; its aim being to increase that to 30,000 by the end of 2018.
