Customers at leading trade and DIY retailer Toolstation can now pick up not just a drill or some screws – but a new van, thanks to a ground-breaking partnership with a leading vehicle supplier.

Toolstation, Britain’s fastest growing supplier of tools, accessories and building supplies to trade customers, home improvers and self-builders, has teamed up with independent specialist Vanaways to provide access to vans of virtually any make or model at highly competitive prices, with the absolute minimum of hassle. Lucy Trevelyan, Assistant Category Manager at Toolstation, said: “Our partnership with Vanaways provides customers with access to a wide selection of vans in various sizes and models and is part of our increased effort to support tradespeople. The new range is a welcome expansion to our offer of tools and more for any task, and we look forward to helping tradespeople find their ideal vehicle.”

“Bringing our two brands together makes perfect sense,” added Vanaways Managing Director Chris Jakeways. “Toolstation’s customers are exactly the type of people who will benefit most from the quick, simple and hassle-free deals we can offer to get their businesses on the road to success.”

The arrangement sees Vanaways’ services marketed directly through Toolstation’s web presence, online to registered customers, and at the retailer’s network of more than 550 stores nationwide.
