New livery for Toolstation Dafs and trailers

Tools and equipment supplier Toolstation has had a new livery applied to 34 trucks and trailers by a team of technicians from graphics specialist RGVA.

Each of the vehicles - owned and operated by third-party logistics provider Howard Tenens as part of a contract - are now run in Toolstation colours, replacing the existing Howard Tenens livery. They include nine Daf XF105 tractor units, 13 Daf CF75 26-tonne rigid trucks, curtain-sided and box variants, and 12 trailers.

The vehicles operate out of Swindon, Daventry, Redditch and London making more than 270 deliveries a day. A variety of different vinyl application techniques were used, including cab wraps, trailer graphics and new curtain designs.

As Toolstation’s vehicles are on the road five days a week, RGVA arranged the installation over six weeks to minimise any interruption. Beth O’Neill, group commercial manager for Howard Tenens, said: “The team at Toolstation truly understand the vital role the vehicles play in building brand awareness from the road.

“As they are such an important customer for Howard Tenens, we worked together to consolidate their corporate identity across the fleet, applying the company’s livery to each of the vehicles we use as part of their operation. When it came to fitting the graphics, RGVA was the obvious choice.

"We’ve worked with them in the past, so knew we could rely on their team to complete the work quickly and to the highest standard. We presented RGVA with a real challenge when it came to completing this job and they had to go above and beyond to deliver within the timescales specified. Everyone at Howard Tenens and Toolstation is delighted with the results.”
