Customer Testimonial Blog – Wimbledon Electrician, James Wilkins
To celebrate the release of our new trade van racking packages we thought we’d catch up with one of our favourite Electricians. James Wilkins is the owner of Wimbledon Electrician Ltd and purchased his first set of bott Smartvan racking in 2017. We caught up with him for a chat about what drove his decision to buy a Smartvan solution and how the racking has worked for him over the last year.
“Hi James, thank you for taking the time to speak to us today. We’re hoping that your insights and experience will help other tradespeople who are considering investing in van racking.”
“No problem, glad to help if I can.”
