News from Vauxhall: Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles has collaborated with leading trade and DIY retailer, Screwfix, to give away one of its multiple award-winning vans, complete with £1,500 worth of Stanley tools.

The new heavy-duty Movano van was won by Alan Bessell, a Flooring Contractor, and was handed over at Drive Bristol Vauxhall by Business Manager, Alastair Soper. The Movano is perfectly suited to help Alan carry out his business every day.

The Movano, powered by the 2.3 CDTi 100PS engine, produces a healthy 285Nm of torque through the front wheels and achieves a combined fuel economy figure of 37.2mpg, which will allow Alan to benefit from both performance and fuel efficiency – vital concerns of any business.

The prize, which was part of Screwfix’s ‘Win a Van’ competition, saw the trade and DIY retailer partner up with hand-tool supplier, Stanley Tools, which provided £1,500 of its tools alongside the Vauxhall van, which is worth over £25,000. The competition was open to customers who bought Stanley products through Screwfix, and Alan was drawn as the lucky winner from over 90,000 entries.

“I can’t believe I have won this amazing prize, it’s not every day you win a brand new van by simply going to your local Screwfix store. I am really grateful, as the Movano will really help with the day-to-day running of my flooring business,” said Bessell.

Steve Bryant, Brand Manager, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles added, “It is great to have been involved with two brands with whom we share many customers to give away one of our award-winning vans. We are pleased that it has gone to a deserving winner who will really get the most from it. The competition has also given us a great opportunity to promote our hardworking network of Vauxhall retailers.”
