Xmo Strata has launched a specialised sign valeting service which uses purpose-built VW Crafter vehicles carrying their own water tanks, cold pressure washers and hoses, lighting and a full health. The company says the £30,000 vehicles have one key advantage: they allow operators to clean hard-to-reach areas without the need for ladders, access equipment, or the need to be near a water tap.

According to Xmo Strata, the move is part of a bid to help retailers fight the recession and make signware last longer.
