Ford Transit Connect Perfect for the Side Job

Transit Connect Wagon owner Devin Stovall and bikes

The Ford Transit Connect is already a pretty versatile van for someone who wants to haul their families around, but doesn’t want one of the minivan mainstays. But the Transit Connect is much more versatile than that, and can be used for running a side business along with the day-to-day.

People running side businesses have grown significantly in the past few years, spurred on by wage stagnation and ease of starting a business. The internet has made selling a service easier than ever.

Devin Stovall won a Transit Connect as part of their #Unminivan promotion, and is using it for family duties and a side business. By day he repairs bicycles. He uses the van to haul his kids back and forth to school and take care of the groceries.

Devin is starting a business where he repairs bicycles and wheelchairs on the side, and equipped his Transit Connect with a roof rack, tow hitch, portable bicycle repair stand, plus other items to support the business.

“This summer, I’ll use our Transit Connect Wagon to service bicycles and wheelchairs on weekends and days off from my full-time job at a bicycle shop,” said Stovall. He’ll offer his service right on site, at popular bike and BMX trails. That’s the added benefit of having the Transit Connect and his tools being portable.

Unlike other minivans, the Transit Connect is also designed to do work. It makes sense buyers would take advantage of that.
