Trim-It has ordered 60 Citroen Relay vans following its appearance on Channel 4’s The Money Maker show.
The mobile barber business, which already has Citroen Relays on its fleet, requires the additional vehicles to support the rapid growth of its business.
A further 160 Relay panel vans are planned for delivery before the end of 2022.
Liam Scriven, chief operations officer at Trim-It, said: “The Citroen Relay is a great product, with the perfect shape to be converted for our mobile barbershops. It provides a massive loading area and a comfortable cab with all the latest tech to make sure our barbers have the best. We’re looking forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with Citroen and to continue using their products.”
Originally running just seven vans, Trim-It now has more than 17,000 users of its app. The business was founded by Darren Tenkorang and featured on Channel 4 show The Money Maker earlier this year. As part of the show, entrepreneur Eric Collins offered his advice, experience, business acumen and his own financial backing to Trim-It to help the brand reach its full potential.
Trim-It opted for Enterprise specification vans, which are equipped with air conditioning, cruise control and sat nav. In terms of length and height, the business choses the 4,035mm long ‘L3’ version with the 2,522mm height ‘H2’. This configuration will allow the fitment of its new look barber shop interior, as previewed on The Money Maker, complete with tiled floor, crisp white walls and a mirrored ceiling.
Scott Westerby, fleet director at Citroen UK, added: "Trim-It is one of our most recent customers to make the sensible decision to add a new fleet of Citroen vans to their business and, as a result, has started enjoying the growth that they can bring. With four different lengths, three heights and four trim levels, plus the choice of Diesel and the soon to be launched 100% electric e-Relay, it really is easy to see why the Citroen Relay range is proving so popular with a wide variety of fleet and business operators.”
