Say ‘hello’ to the smart white van man

We’re bidding farewell to the stereotypes of the ‘white van man’ as our fleet of commercial vehicles get a rather ‘smart’ upgrade. Yes, we love a pun.

In case you didn’t already know, every single one of our Blue Square Utilities (BSU) engineers gets their very own company van. Kitted out with everything they need for smart meter upgrade and installation works, our fleet of vehicles keep BSU’s moving – quite literally.

Supplied by our friends at GAP vehicle hire, and with 80+ company motors currently on the road – a number which will soon tick well over 100 – we’ve decided to get each set of wheels liveried up with the BSU logo.

Having previously travelled up and down the UK wearing only the paint they left the factory with, we thought we might as well make the most of these mobile blank canvases and create our own moving billboards!

But it’s not just free advertising we’re celebrating – these vehicles are central to our operations.

“As a smart meter installation specialist, we have extremely strict rules and regulations around our company vehicles,” explained BSU CEO, Steve Less. “From having enough space to contain the various tools and smart meter infrastructure, to air vents to keep colleagues safe when carrying defunct gas meters, everything needs to meet an exacting standard.

“With each of our engineers relying on their company car to do their jobs, and with customers keen to see who’s parking outside their home or business, we don’t know why it’s taken us so long to roll out the new branding!”

We’re still on the hunt for engineers across the UK (who will each receive one of these shiny new vans!). Take a look at our vacancies page for more information and to apply.

And, next time you’re out and about and spot one of the BSU team on the road, give us a wave!
