Lets Celebrate the Best of British! | Morecambe and Wize VW Campers in 2016
Ready to celebrate?
This year we’re having a party, as we think we’ve got something pretty special to celebrate. 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of the famous British double act, Morecambe and Wises’ first ever Television appearance. Today, their jokes, quotes and songs are recognised all over the world.
We chose Morecambe and Wise for our namesake, not just because we like a good laugh, and who doesn’t, but because we also believed in what they stood for. It was the meeting of minds, dedication to a belief in what they were doing, and their confidence to try new things that stuck a chord with us. They may not have realised it at the time, but they were helping us write our business plan some 75 years later. So, we thought what better way to pay homage to our routes and celebrate all things British! British comedy, British music, British sport and British business. Here’s a little something to get you in the mood…
Have you seen Anne Marie Wright’s handwritten art yet? Well if you haven’t, you need to get yourself up to speed. She is best known for her portrait of Tony Blair created using the handwritten names of fallen British soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan, titled Their families have been told. The web page for Wright’s portrait of Stephen Fry received 8,000 hits in two hours after being mentioned by Fry on Twitter. This year she has kindly offered to help us celebrate by donating a piece of her work to the famous duo. To top it off, she will be offering it as a prize to you lucky followers! Want to get your hands on this? Keep your eye on our Facebook page for more information.
We’ll also be working with our industry contacts to offer prize giveaways of the latest tech and gadgets. Dare I say there may even be a range of branded goods on the horizon!
You’re in Safe hands
We know how much you love your campers, we love ours too. But keeping them alive can be a labour of love, not to mention the financial hurdles that can present themselves over the course of ownership. So this year in, we are launching a range of new VW Camper products to help keep your bus on the road.
From the early days we offered our famous 3-2-1 warranty and we are now pleased to announce that we are offering Extended Camper Van Warranties for up to 3 years! It’s not just for existing Morecambe and Wize customers or those who have purchased a vehicle from us. This will be the first Classic VW Camper warranty scheme in the UK that open to the general public that we of! Our new Warranty website is due to launch in the first half of the year so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Now we’re settled into our new premises we are also launching our range of ‘Morecambe and Wize Services’ to help you restore and maintain your own vehicles. Like our Option VW Camper builds these are tailored products to suit your budget and can be working into your build schedule. So if it’s a bare metal soda blast and etch prime you are after, powder coating, or maybe even a shell painting we can now assist in this part of your project. Our inventory for the new online shop is building and our new CNC machine means we can now start retailing interior furniture for your campervan.
As well as developing our new services we’ve also been busy working hard to add value to our existing Option Campervans.
Here’s a list of some of the new procedures :
- Entire shell strip down to include the underside mechanical components.
- Blasting to underside, to include painting and rust prevention to same
- Powder coating of all removed components
- 3 stage etch priming processes
