Signs Express (Peterborough) adds some extra sparkle to Autosheen Professional Car Care’s latest vehicle fleet.
The signs and graphics specialist already had a strong working relationship with Intercounty Truck & Van - the Mercedes dealership tendering to supply the new fleet of vehicles to Autosheen Professional Car Care - and jumped at the opportunity to quote for the new vehicle graphics.
Autosheen PCC had been in contact with a number of additional signage companies including its supplier at the time, however, the competitive pricing quoted by Signs Express (Peterborough) and its position as part of a franchise network - the same as Autosheen – made it a logical choice.
Autosheen PCC general manager Adrian Stiehl commented on the decision: “We contacted several signage companies in search of the most accommodating and cost effective pricing package. As a franchisor our vehicles are positioned all over the country so it was important that the company we chose could also service the branches further afield. Although we wanted most of the work to be conducted at a central point, we also needed easy access for vehicles damaged on the road. Signs Express fitted the bill providing a competitive quote along with excellent service and expertise.”
The graphics will be applied to Autosheen PCC’s new Mercedes Vito vehicles at the Peterborough centre with any additional graphics application for crash repairs etc being rolled out the Signs Express network. The graphics which are a combination of digitally printed and cut vinyl will be applied to black vans as specified by the design to approximately 25 vans per year. The Peterborough team also designed a silver laurel leaf logo to be included on the design of the vehicle graphics to celebrate Autosheen PCC’s 25th anniversary.
Signs Express (Peterborough) owner Anne Hitch said: “Vehicle graphics are an ideal advertising opportunity for any business on the road, so when we heard that Austosheen PCC was looking for a company to promote them on their new vehicles, we really wanted to try our hardest to meet their requirements and expectations. Having already worked on a number of projects with Intercounty Truck & Van, it helps make the process run much smoother as we can liaise direct with the dealership, complete the graphic application on schedule and be in time for delivery to Autosheen PCC. So far we’ve only completed the pilot vehicle to launch at their convention, but the first actual application will begin next month.”
