Makeover for dirty vans

Tradespeople in Hampshire have been given the chance to start 2019 in style – by winning a makeover of their van.


Builders’ merchant Selco Builders Warehouse – which has branches in Southampton and Portsmouth – is offering a stylish and eye-catching re-wrap of a tradesperson’s vehicle.


Selco is inviting tradespeople to submit images of their current vans, and a panel of judges will award the prize to the most deserving winner based on which one is the dirtiest and most in need of a revamp.


Ruddy Muddy, a Norfolk-based artist who specialises in creating artwork from vans covered in mud, got the campaign off to a great start by creating a ‘Selco Needs You’ image on a dirty van.


Ruddy Muddy, alias Ricky Minns, said: “For my kind of art, there is no better sight than seeing a van literally covered in mud – but I understand it’s not suitable for tradespeople.

“The re-wrap of a van will be a dream prize for a tradesperson and help them begin 2019 with literally a clean start.”


The re-wrap will be provided by Totally Dynamic, a leading specialist wrapping company which has installation centres throughout the UK, including London and Norwich.


To enter, tradespeople can post a picture of their van — or that of a fellow tradesperson — on www.selcobw.com/dirty-van before January 31st.
