Taking care of Mears’ 10,000 strong fleet
Signs Express have been working with Mears for over 10 years as a strategic partner delivering signage and graphics solutions across their portfolio of vehicles, homes and sites.
Mears is one of the UK’s leading service providers to both the public and private sector with over 12,000 employees, working with clients to help develop, fund and implement their placemaking ambitions. Their care teams deliver approximately 180,000 hours of care and support each week on behalf of 127 local authorities and a number of Clinical Commissioning Groups, and provide care services to an increasing number of people who fund their own care.
Mears wanted a partner to work with them across the UK, providing a single point of contact to manage and deliver signage and graphics quickly whilst maintain brand consistency.
As an approved supplier for Mears vehicles and their partners, we have provided a complete solution for new vehicles – applying graphics to up to 1000 vehicles per year, including the branding of new vehicles, replacement branding on existing vehicles and accident management service. Working in collaboration with their fleet management company, Signs Express coordinate, control and deliver vehicle graphic and branding installations for Mears and partners across the UK. Signs Express utilise their full national network of centres to perform Mears work allowing for quick turnarounds anywhere in the country, all coordinated centrally.
We use Signs Express nationally on a variety of projects across our 300+ branches, including vehicle livery, hoarding, signage and more. With regards to the level of service, craftsmanship, cost, I have to be honest, I can't fault them. We have gone to them with differing deadlines, ranging from three-week leads, to completely unrealistic timescales, yet they always deliver for us on time, on budget and to a standard that is consistently excellent. They not only meet but exceed our expectations and we continue to use them for all our signage needs. We see Signs Express as a long-term strategic partner of Mears, who understand our needs, wants, and are more than happy to advise on the best possible solutions.
