T. J. Parry & Family Funeral Directors is a family-run business based in Burton on Trent. Founded in 2018, the company continues to support families from within the town and the surrounding areas, under the direction of Managing Director, Timothy Parry.

Timothy and his staff have a wealth of experience in caring for the community and they use their expertise to provide high-quality care and a personal service to families at their most difficult time.

Following a period of research, Mr Parry contacted Hardy Signs to explore the possibility of ‘vehicle wrapping’ the company’s fleet. Vehicle Wrap is a process of applying vinyl film to part, or all, of a vehicle’s bodywork. The film can be printed with designs and images or, as in this case, can be a solid, pre-finished colour. The process gives similar results to respraying a vehicle, however, the film can be removed at any point in the future to return to the original finish. The film provides good protection to the original bodywork and therefore increases resale value further down the line.

A decision was made to change the colour of the company vehicles from black to grey after discussing the idea with clients and receiving a positive response. In order to substantiate the feedback, T.J. Parry decided to create a Facebook poll to source opinion from a wider audience. The result of the poll was conclusive, with 98% of the public voting to change the fleet to grey. As the first company in the region to carry out this kind of change it was important that the process be carried out correctly.

“Hardy Signs ticked all the boxes for us as a supplier” explained Mr Parry. “We found them to be competitively priced and with a great reputation for quality and service. It was also important to us, as an independent, to look to another independent and local supplier. We have been very impressed with Hardy Signs and have received nothing but positive comments since the works were completed. Our clients have told us how much they like the new grey fleet and we’d like to thank Hardy Signs for all their help with the project”.
