John Weir upgrade firms solid “workhorse” to a brand new Superior LWB Ford Transit Custom

John Weir is a family-owned independent funeral directors in North Kent, run by John and his wife Beverly. The popular and well-respected funeral firm operates four busy branches and has served the Medway towns and surrounding districts for 45 years.

 Serving a population of over 275,000, John Weir’s fleet vehicles including removal vehicles, need to be hard-working and reliable, upholding the company’s values of professionalism, high standards and respectability.  

 John Weir explains why Superior UK Automotive Ltd are their ‘go-to’ supplier for professional removal vehicles. John commented, “We purchased our first Vito from Superior almost 15 years ago and it was a game-changer for us – the “Rise&Fall” decking was so versatile and well designed we were very impressed.” He added, “It stood the test of time and in 2021 we replaced our original with another stunning Superior Vito.”

 Recently the firm took delivery of another brand new removal vehicle – this time a Superior LWB Ford Transit Custom. “We have always had a Transit as our sturdy ‘Workhorse’ vehicle running alongside the Vitos and we are delighted with our new one – so much more sumptuous, practical and professional – it really looks the part and that gives our clients confidence.”

 John opted for a full decking system in olive oiled wood with extensive bespoke storage incorporated. He commented, “the decking is first-class with a beautiful finish, a lot of thought has been put into the design with storage cleverly integrated using every bit of space available.” He added, “The service from the Superior team is excellent; we would certainly recommend them not just for the quality of their vehicles but for their high standards and commitment to their customers.”


When it comes to high standards and commitment John Weir sets the bar high – he has spent decades dedicated to the community his funeral firm serves. John spent 24 years sitting in Kent Magistrates Courts, was appointed High Sheriff of Kent 2021-2022 by our late Queen Elizabeth (attending over 200 official engagements over his year in the position); and is now involved in rehabilitation programmes for inmates at local prisons.

 John added, “As a result of my work in local prisons a charity football match was held between our funeral staff and HMP Rochester which raised £2k for the charity Mind – we have more matches planned for this year and thank everyone involved for their continued support.”
