MANASQUAN, N.J., Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When SMART Carpet and Flooring first started bringing carpet and flooring samples to clients' homes in New Jersey back in 1995, the company had just one mobile showroom: a Dodge Caravan sporting a hand-painted logo and design. The SMART Carpet and Flooring fleet has grown considerably since then as the company has expanded across New Jersey and into Pennsylvania and New York, but through the years SMART Carpet and Flooring stuck with its trusty Caravans. But with Fiat-Chrysler's announcement last year that it would discontinue the Caravan, SMART Carpet and Flooring decided it was time to upgrade its fleet.
As a result, this month the company will have 12 brand-new Mercedes-Benz Metris vans on the road. And the timing couldn't be better, since SMART Carpet and Flooring is expanding its flooring lines. Eventually, every SMART Carpet and Flooring mobile showroom will be a Mercedes Metris.
The new SMART Carpet and Flooring vans are larger than the Caravans--a critical consideration as the company adds more flooring lines to the thousands already housed in each mobile showroom. As the company grows, it continues to add products that appeal to every budget, every style and every taste. The Mercedes-Benz Metris features rear tailgate doors, which shelter mobile showroom staff from inclement weather when loading and unloading carpet and flooring samples at clients' homes.
The Metris's safety features were another draw for SMART Carpet and Flooring. Each van includes steering wheel controls for hands-free operation of communication and navigation functions, along with automatic, targeted Crosswind Assist braking to help the van stay in its lane in spite of wind gusts. The Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program, or ESP®, helps keep the van stable at all times, particularly if certain dangerous conditions are detected. And because the cab is completely enclosed, flooring samples in the cargo area cannot slide forward and injure the driver in the event of a sudden stop.
"Our team really appreciates the upgraded safety features and increased space of the Mercedes Metris, and we have heard from customers that they like our new look," said SMART Carpet and Flooring salesperson Brandon Fennell. "The renowned Mercedes-Benz luxury keeps us comfortable, and the quality of these vans just can't be beat."
SMART Carpet and Flooring was the first at-home flooring showroom to serve New Jersey. Today, the company is the premier mobile flooring shopping experience in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York, and SMART Carpet and Flooring mobile showrooms carry thousands of carpet, tile, wood, vinyl, and stone flooring option samples directly to homeowners. Clients enjoy shopping for flooring in the comfort of their own homes, with the guidance of SMART Carpet and Flooring's highly trained flooring experts. The company provides complete flooring services, from flooring removal and installation to financing. SMART Carpet and Flooring's mobile business model allows customers to enjoy lower prices and completely personalized service.
