Going Greener

The FITAS accredited engineers from Handsfree Group’s install division have upgraded their image while achieving valuable fuel cost savings and CO2 reductions, with a new fleet of install engineer vehicles.

In the single biggest ‘roll out’ of new vehicles ever conducted by the Handsfree Group, Ford has delivered 25 new Ford Transit Connect vans.

CO2 Reductions

The new vehicles are Ford Transit Connect models with the full ECOnetic economy package capable of returning a healthy 70.2mpg.  

The Transit Connects have made a major contribution towards the big reduction in carbon emissions which Handsfree Group has been able to achieve since standing down its previous fleet.

The new vans are attractively finished in company colours, emblazoned with the new redesigned Handsfree Group logo.


The new fleet of Connect Vans have been equipped with a comprehensive range of safety, security and communication products from the Handsfree Group TECh product range.

All the new vehicles have also been equipped with Datalive Vehicle Tracking, which helps the Install team fleet run efficiently by increasing productivity through improved planning, which is significantly cutting costs.

UK Wide

Handsfree Group UK Engineers install vehicle technology products for transport, logistics and emergency service clients nationwide across the UK, 7 days a week.

Their comfort is a priority for the company as is ensuring that they have a quality vehicle equipped with essential technology, durable storage and organisation for their specialist tools, all of which enables them to deliver exceptional levels service.


Scott Cassell, Handsfree Group’s Company Director, said: “Our engineers are certainly enjoying their comfortable new ECOnetic vans, which look great – this can only help to reinforce our image as a quality and responsible business. Most importantly, though, their impressive fuel-efficiency has allowed us to achieve a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions, and the process of moving towards an even greener fleet will continue as we replace the remainder of our installation fleet.”
