On the Road: Finding Extra Room with our Heavy Lifters

Kelvin Stokes is Modo’s Director of Fleet Operations and calling him a car enthusiast is an understatement. Whether he’s crafting solar battery chargers or scouting the newest car models and features, he’s our expert when it comes to Modo’s fleet and spends most of his day on the road. Who’d know our fleet of cargo and mini vans better than him?

When you Need that Extra Room

Whether you’re planning a camping trip, moving to a new place, picking up friends or working on a garden project, Modo has the perfect car for your trip.
