Our Story

Rob & Mike           

THE BACKGROUND

2005. Two brothers. One used camper van for hire.

Rob and Mike slowly edged their way out of IT and Engineering jobs by building up a collection of rental vans for folk to explore the Scottish Highlands. The fleet peaked at twenty vehicles in 2008 and all was well with the world. Then the recession hit and the boys got spooked.

Now with young families, the duo decided not to risk losing their houses over the sake of a business. So out of the smouldering embers of a debt-ridden rental business emerged 'Kiravans - Installers of Van Windows, Elevating Roofs and Seats'. All well and good until they realised just how difficult it was to source decent conversion parts quickly and easily.

And so began the mission to simplify, de-mystify and reduce the cost of building a camper van.

  

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

We design, make and source decent kit for your van conversion. We like to keep our shelves well stocked and deliver to you fast. It doesn't end there though – we've built up a crack team of razor sharp individuals to help us.

WHO'S IN THE KIRAVANS TEAM?

Well, there's Andy, Mark and the guys at our warehousing partner in Keighley. Picking, packing, protecting and posting. Order by midday and you should be unwrapping their handy work the very next day.

Need to speak to us? You'll get straight through to Phil or one of his well informed customer service experts. Our phone and email team are based in Shipley and if they can't solve your query straight away, it'll get sent on to Rommel, Skye or John.

Our design and manufacturing arm is scattered throughout the land and across the globe. We love new ideas and employ the services of talented professionals to enable our projects to come to life.

Rachel is our book keeping guru and Sam handles most of the stock ordering from our Keighley headquarters. Which happens to be just round the corner from our clever website wizards at Vortex.

So, as you can see, we have bucked the trend by not renting a building, filling it with stuff and employing a few individuals to do lots of different jobs. Instead we have brought together dedicated teams of people who excel in their particular field. We reckon this approach makes for happier customers.

HOW DO YOU ENSURE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION?

That's where our online reviews come in. Every customer gets the chance to score us and write a couple of lines. This feedback goes straight onto the website without us intervening. We want to do the best we can and your feedback is the quickest way for us to see when we slip up. If you're not happy, send it back. No quibbles. Then we'll get it fixed for next time.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Times have changed since Rob was packing windows in a rented shipping container and Mike was fitting out vans in his garage. Our double seat swivel invention has gone global and now ships throughout Europe and beyond. Our French seat supplier, Scopema, has had to enlarge their facility as we have become one of their biggest RIB seat distributors worldwide.

Our passion is coming up with new ideas and working with partners to bring those ideas to life. That's what we do and in the process strive to make building a camper van simpler, quicker and safer.
