Renault offers £27,000 prize for Screwfix 'Tradesman of the Year'

Posted on
  • Renault UK has teamed-up with Screwfix and national newspaper the Daily Star to help find ‘Britain’s Top Tradesman 2012’ and offer the lucky winner a brand new Renault van worth up to £27,000 on the road. 


    As Europe's number one van brand for the last 13 years in a row, Renault is the perfect partner in the country-wide search for the nation’s premier tradesman which last year attracted more than 3,000 entries. 


    The annual competition is open to all types of tradesmen, whether that be builders, plumbers, electricians or handymen, and seeks to crown someone who not only provides exceptional standards of service, but who also goes that extra
    mile for customer satisfaction. 


    Whoever wins the 2012 title will be entitled to select a van up to the value of £27,000 from Renault’s award-winning range. One of Renault’s 100% electric Kangoo Van Z.E vehicles would be ideal for an electrician, for example, while a
    team of hard-working roofers or glaziers could make excellent use of a Renault Master Crew Van.


    “The past twelve months have seen many tradesmen diversify and experiment to improve their business – from embracing new technology to be more efficient, to welcoming young apprentices into their business”, commented Screwfix marketing
    director John Mewett. 


    “Tradesmen really are the foundation of any community, ensuring homes and businesses are fit for purpose. This competition has been created to recognise them and the vital work they carry out.” 


    In addition to the tremendous value and workmanlike qualities of Renault’s LCV range, new Renault  vans come available with the 4+ package – meaning four years warranty, roadside cover, servicing and finance if applicable. 


    Phil York, Renault UK Marketing Director said “We are delighted to be working with Screwfix and the Daily Star newspaper by offering a van to the winner of the 2012 Top Tradesman of the Year competiton.  I am sure the winner will find the perfect match for their business needs from our extensive range of vans”.


    Tradesmen wishing to enter the contest have until 8th October to submit applications, after which selected regional finalists will go head-to-head. The grand final to determine Britain’s Top Tradesman 2012 will be held in November at an, as yet, unconfirmed location.
