It started with one van for a Dyno-Rod franchisee and five years on she has supplied more than 120 vans plus cars for directors and managers

THERE’S no disputing that Dyno-Rod vans are distinctive in their fluorescent red that shouts ‘action’ – and those Dyno-Rod vans are an action success story for Hampshire-based CVM Group which supplies many of them.

That all started with CVM account manager Sharon Gilpin who started the relationship with Dyno-Rod in 2013 with one van for a franchisee. Within a year she had supplied vehicles to ten franchisees.

In five years she has supplied more than 120 vans – Ford, Volkswagen, Peugeot and Vauxhall – and today she supplies vehicles for half of the Dyno-Rod franchisees.

They are not just bare vehicles.

  • Traditional work vans with ply-lining and shelving
  • Work vans with jetter machines fitted
  • Dual purpose vehicles with plumbing equipment in front and rods for drainage at the back. This is a particular challenge because the fitting out has to ensure these are separated to avoid contamination

And it doesn’t stop there: Sharon now also supplies many directors and managers at Dyno Rod with their company cars from Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Volvo, Land Rover and Skoda.

Her commitment to the brand is reflected by the fact that she has attended and exhibited at the Dyno Rod national conference for staff and franchisees over the last five years.

Sharon says: “I have enjoyed building our relationship with Dyno-Rod from one vehicle back in 2013 to providing over 120 vehicles across their franchisee network today.

“Knowing the quality and service Dyno-Rod provide out in the market place, I am proud in knowing that I have helped to contribute to part of their essential equipment, enabling them to carry out their work.“

Darren Cameron, managing director of Quayside Industries trading as Dyno-Rod near Southampton, said: “In our fifth year working with CVM, we continue to enjoy our ongoing relationship with Sharon providing our vehicles, equipment and signwriting for many of our franchisee vehicles.

“Sharon’s dedication to Dyno-Rod along with her expertise and sense of humour has set CVM apart from other vehicle providers and I look forward to working with her and CVM in the future.”

CVM head of marketing Nic Jones says the company is expert in the supply of vehicle and equipment packages for a wide range of businesses, such as Metro Rod and Wet Pets.

She said: “We already supply to some of the biggest and best-known franchises, keeping their costs down and providing vehicle signage and wrapping. We supply both franchises and also directly to franchisees.

“Meeting the exacting requirements of some of the country’s best known brands has provided us with the expertise to help businesses grow.

“The vehicle simply arrives at your doorstep ready for work straight away, all thanks to our team with over 20 years’ experience, and CVM offers a simple, cost-effective, monthly payment that covers the vehicle and equipment package.

“A good example of the work we do is the fully equipped jetting vans we supply to both Dyno Rod nationwide.

“We offer special packages that allow you to start your business straight away with no hassle. Jetting equipment, window frails – the side racks for large sheets of glass etc – ply lining, roof racks, checker plate flooring and many other bundles are included in our special, low price package deals.

“With jetting machines often costing over £10,000, our bundled finance pairs your required equipment with a brand new, Euro 6 compliant van. Sign writing and vehicle wrapping franchise requirements are also included within the low monthly payment.”

Nic added: “We supply both established businesses and new start companies and our vehicle and finance experts can offer all the services you will require.
