Premier online flower store flowers.ie is using a fleet of the new Ford Fiesta Vans for its express nationwide delivery of flowers and associated products.
Ford Ireland regional manager Paul O’Sullivan said the Fiesta Van was “ideal” for a company like flowers.ie, with low running costs and great manoeuvrability making it perfect for deliveries to homes large and small across the country.
And costs are lowered further through a Ford package that delivers three years’ free service and roadside assistance and a three-year warranty.
Flowers.ie general manager Martin O’Gara said his drivers “love” the Fiesta Van, describing it as “a real ‘head-turner’ on the road”.
The company has seen a growth in business from Irish people living abroad delivering flowers to loved ones back home to mark special occasions.
“It is bittersweet in that our business is benefiting to a large extent from the high number of Irish people who have left our shores over the last number of years”, O’Gara admitted.
The Fiesta Van is available from €14,077.
