The tuk-tuk is a three-wheel motorcycle rickshaw for hire that is a popular mode of transportation in South Africa. TukMe Home is working on expanding its presence and services in the neighborhoods north of Johannesburg with the help of several tuk-tuks that are newly wrapped with digitally printed Avery Dennison MPI 1005 Supercast and DOL 1360 overlaminate.
TukMe Home is promoting its fleet of tuk-tuks as a safe way for folks out on the town to get home. The Avery Dennison team in South Africa worked with Brand-a-car to ensure the printing and wrap process was seamless and a success with Avery Dennison’s popular vehicle wrap products.
Brand-a-car wrapped the first tuk-tuk earlier this year with a second wrap installed in July. TukMe Home aims to have twenty or thirty tuk-tuks on the road in the next year and, ultimately, would like to expand the service throughout South Africa.
TukMe Home is using the wrapped tuk-tuks on its trial route, which runs between Fourways and Douglasdale, neighborhoods north of Johannesburg, and services around 20 restaurants and hotels.
TukMe Home is extremely happy with the results so far and has said they will definitely use Avery Dennison graphics materials to wrap the rest of the fleet. The company will also be offering advertising space on the roof and doors and, later, inside the tuk-tuks, for which they will again contract the assistance of Brand-a-car in applying Avery Dennison’s digital graphics materials.
