Ideal Boilers and Wolseley have announced the winner of their ‘Epic Giveaway’: Oliver Ilines, a self-employed plumbing and heating engineer based in London.

Installers were entered into the Epic Giveaway every time they bought an Ideal Logic Max or Vogue Max at a Wolseley branch, between September and December 2019. Three monthly winners took home £3,000, £2,000, or £1,000 of Love2Shop vouchers, in the build-up to the headline prize draw.

The headline prize package – worth £40,000 – includes a brand new VW Transporter van wrapped in the winner’s livery, fitted with a tube carrier for the roof rack and stocked with an i-Mini, Logic Max, and Vogue Max boiler from Ideal. A set of premium Makita power tools was also included, complete with secure van safe for added peace of mind.

Ollie collected his prize at a socially-distanced giveaway from the Wolseley branch in Potters Bar and said: “I couldn’t believe it when I got the call saying I had won. As installers, we’re working in people’s homes day in, day out, which is why it’s so important we’re seen as true professionals that they can trust. Working with Wolseley and Ideal means I have top-performing products, available when I need them – and now I can arrive at appointments in a brand new, branded van!”

Jo Shepherd, Chief Marketing Officer at Ideal Boilers, said: “We’re thrilled to finally be able to announce the winner of our Epic Giveaway competition and to arrange for Ollie to collect his winnings in a safe and responsible way.

"By incentivising installers to stock Ideal, we’re helping them provide the best possible products and service, which will help drive recommendations and repeat custom in the months and years to come. While we’ve had to wait a few extra months to present Ollie with his prize, hopefully doing it now will get installers excited about this year’s campaign.”

Dominic Sakar, Head of Category – P&H local at Wolseley UK, said: “Installers work tirelessly to ensure people across the country have heating and hot water. Although slightly unconventional, we really enjoyed awarding Ollie with his prize at the recent presentation, and we’re pleased to help him, and others continue to provide an excellent service to their customers.”

Following on from the success of the 2019 campaign, Ideal Boilers and Wolseley have once again teamed up to offer installers the chance to win prizes when they buy an Ideal Logic Max or Vogue Max boiler (Combi, Heat, or System), from now until 31 December. Apple technology is up for grabs this time, including AirPods, an iPad Mini, and a new iPhone 11.
