Northgate teams up with five-time World Darts Champion to launch "Rentinator" product
Northgate has joined forces with five-time world champion and former world number one to help launch ‘Rentinator’ which focuses on solving van problems for small businesses with only a handful of vehicles.
Rentinator has a fleet of over 6,000 vans available to rent or try for up to three months at reduced rental rates with no commitment to buy, and over 1,000 quality-used vans ready to purchase.
As part of the launch the Dutch ace who won the hearts of British sports fans after his victory over Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in the 2007 World Championships, visited a small business based in Leamington Spa as part of a competition.
Raymond visited the team of shop fitters in a unique Rentinator branded van which is set up as a mobile darts unit with dartboard and scoreboard oche to play a few games and exchange stories.
Speaking at the launch, Northgate commercial director, Gareth Jones, said: 'Barney is a fantastic ambassador for Rentinator, our catchline is Van Problem, No Problem, and he certainly makes darts look like no problem at all!
'It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to play sport with someone that is the very best in the world at what they do, and it is great that we can give someone else the chance to meet him in person and play darts with him.'
Barneveld admitted he was delighted to have been asked to launch Rentinator and speaking after the event said: 'I speak to a lot of the crowd at the PDC events and a lot of them are builders, electricians, couriers and other professions that rely heavily on vans so it’s great that the guys from Fitzpatrick Fitters won.
'The Rentinator darts van is very cool, the team of fitters were really impressed with it and we had a great afternoon playing darts and sharing stories.'
