Envisage Join Judging Panel for Van Conversion of the Year Awards
Posted November 21, 2023
Envisage were approached to take part in the judging of eBay’s inaugural Van Conversion of the Year Awards 2023.
The winner of Best Van Conversion Award and £10,000 prize was Paul Whites “AmBEERlance”, a former ambulance converted into a fully functioning, licensed mobile bar.
Nick Colledge, Managing Director, Envisage Technologies, said: “It was really hard choosing a winner as all the conversions showed tremendous imagination and workmanship to create the final product. From those that had no experience whatsoever to the expert professionals, we were incredibly impressed by the outcome of so many of them.”
The conversion was completed during lockdown when The Dog House Bar had to close during restrictions. It allowed the owner, Paul White, to pay their staff in full during lockdown while also delivering their hospitality to the local community.
Paul White, winner of Best Van Conversion award, said: “It kept us afloat; we wouldn’t have survived without it. We were able to source most of the parts from eBay, such as the solar panels, the lithium batteries, and the electrics. It made a massive difference because we needed everything fast so we could get out and see our regulars and other locals.”
