EV Mobile Advice Van - Citizens advice

Innercity campers were involved in building a mobile advice clinic for Citizens Advice Manchester. We renovated the space to create a private office area as well as an ipad suite.

The van was complemented by a full Victron off grid electrical system , Dometic fridge, diesel heater , cctv , internet and a panic alarm .

This van now drives around Manchester providing free advice to the communities .
