A Surrey tradesman’s van dubbed ‘the dirtiest in Britain’ has been given a professional makeover – thanks to Selco Builders Warehouse.
Selco launched a nationwide search to find the filthiest trade vehicle on the road.
The campaign was backed by Ruddy Muddy, an artist who makes incredible pieces of temporary art out of mud on vehicles.
Selco was inundated with entries, from plumbers’ cars caked in mud to neglected builders’ vans full of old cement and dust.
Judges carefully studied the photos before crowning a van belonging to AREK BUILD & Renovations in Addlestone in Surrey as the country’s grubbiest vehicle.
Selco then paid for the offending van to be professionally cleaned and wrapped by specialist wrapping company Totally Dynamic.
Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco, said: “We know that busy tradespeople often struggle to find the time to clean their work vehicles.
“We thought it’d be a bit of fun to see how dirty the dirtiest van actually was. We had some impressive entries but just felt that the AREK van deserved a bit of TLC.”
Anna Bargiel, of AREK, said: “We have to admit, we did let this van get a little dirty. Now that it has been fully cleaned and re-branded, it looks better than it did when it was new.”
