Remember yesterday's post where we mentioned a special gift from the Easter bunny? It probably wasn't hard to guess that we got a new plumbing van. Of course it wasn't quite as simple as finding the van in a basket. In fact, it was a challenge to find a new van at all! When local searches for Ford Transits came up empty, Larry tried California and Arizona, prepared to fly there if necessary to drive a new van home. Transits were selling as fast as they were being listed. That is pretty fast, considering anyone who knows Larry knows he doesn't waste any time! During his nationwide search for a new van, we learned that production of the Ford Transit had been severely limited over the past year due to COVID-19 and a global semiconductor shortage. Finding a Ford Transit for sale was starting to feel like a lost cause when we received word that a local Ford dealership was adding the exact van we were looking for to their inventory. It was an Easter miracle!
Back when we had one van, we never would have imagined feeling desperate to find van number six in only three years' time. TVP has grown its customer base so much that the only way to continue providing exceptional service is to expand our crew and our fleet. It is important to us to meet the needs of new customers while still being able to respond promptly to our existing customers. Staying true to the TVP brand, our business decisions are customer-driven. We strive to provide all of our customers with the best plumbing experience possible. That is why our new van, LP6, will be stickered up, stocked up, and rolling in no time.
