Nissan Commercial Vehicles Announces Winners For "Design Your Ride" Contest
Wanna Go? Pet Transport Wanna Go? Pet Transport provides reliable, safe, clean and comfortable transportation of household pets and rescue animals throughout the country. Even though they work regularly with show animals, the core of their business is pet rescue. This Hampton Roads, VA-based company is based around a full-size van that fits up to 15 animals, although this vehicle is clumsy to drive, gets poor fuel economy and requires a full load of animals in order to break even on transport costs.
Fuel economy is of particular concern to proprietor Jeff Wheeler, who admits "at 14 mpg, our current vehicle makes it hard for us to have a successful business, let alone be able to provide enough income to allow for more charity work. With the NV200's 25 mpg highway fuel economy, our fuel costs would nearly be halved."
Wheeler expects to make good use of the NV200's configurability, noting, "variety and flexibility are the keys to success and saving more shelter animals." To help market his business, Wheeler's van features a striking graphic intended to educate the public as to the options available in regards to animal transportation.
Buonafina Plumbing & Heating LLC Oscar Buonafina has had to shutter his plumbing and heating business twice during separate military deployments as a United States Army Staff Sergeant to Iraq and Afghanistan, but he's now back in business with an old pickup that guzzles gas and barely contains enough space for inventory.His Clifton, NJ-based business will be able to put the more fuel-efficient NV200 to use on a variety of mostly residential projects, likely upfitting the vehicle with custom shelves and a roof rack, along with a wrap featuring the Buonafina Plumbing & Heating company lettering and logo. SafetyZone Systems This five employee company based in Warner Robins, GA is a licensed installer of security systems, home theaters, data systems, phone systems, intercoms, CCTV, access control and, in the words of its proprietor Craig Davis, "basically anything low voltage." The company sought a second vehicle to increase its business but the expense of opening a brand-new store prevented it from doing so. Davis' vision for SafetyZone Systems' NV200 includes a custom wrap featuring a montage of the various products that the company commonly installs, along with their corporate logo.
