Fleets could save thousands with free fleet livery and wrapping survey

Vehicle graphics and wrapping specialist Sign Language is offering potential customers a free survey with the possibility to save them thousands of pounds.

The initiative is a key part of Sign Language's plans to increase its business by 50% this year on the back of its turnover doubling last year.

Potential customers requesting a fleet survey will receive a free of charge report detailing where Sign Language believes it can add value in comparison with incumbent vehicle livery and wrapping suppliers.

Areas investigated in compiling the report include:

  • Material compromise leading to failure of the vinyl and/or paint which can impact on a company’s image.
  • Inappropriate use of vinyl leading to graphics failure.
  • Shortcuts on installation through the use of inexperienced applicators also leading to graphics peeling/failing and resulting in corruption of the company’s brand.
  • Shortcuts in terms of graphics’ production and application also triggering livery failure.

The Fleet Survey concludes with Sign Language providing potential customers with a quote for fleet work for comparative purposes with existing suppliers.

Sign Language managing director Tobin Jenkins (pictured) said: “Sign Language looks at a vehicle joining a potential customer’s fleet and the way it is has been liveried and a second vehicle that is being defleeted to see how the livery has performed.

“Our in depth analysis enables Sign Language to design a tailor-made solution for customers with the potential for savings running into hundreds and even thousands of pounds depending on the size of the fleet.”

He added: “Too many businesses buy on price that ultimately proves costly in the long run because the solution is not right for their requirements."
