Paul Whitehead, Managing Director of Alpha Building Services in Beckenham has won a BMW X5 as part of the Buildbase ‘Get-in’ competition.

The ‘Get-in’ prize draw was created to reward customers by entering them into the competition when they spent more than £50 over July and August 2015.

The competition received over one million entries during the two month period, with more than 1,000 prizes up for grabs totally over £100,000. All winners were chosen via a random generator, receiving prizes from Kindle Fire Tablets to supercar racing days.

First-prize winner Paul collected the BMW X5 at the Croydon branch of Buildingbase from Managing Director Kate Tinsley and Branch Manager Paul McGuin.

Paul, whose company Alpha Building Services is involved in commercial and residential new build projects, commented:  “After 35 years of entering competitions and winning nothing I thought it was about time I won something.

I’ve been doing business with Buildbase for about 14 years and more recently with Hirebase in Peckham and the staff are great – nothing is ever too much trouble.”

Buildbase Managing Director Kate Tinsley added: “We are always looking for new ways to encourage and reward our customers. This was our biggest giveaway to date and it has been a huge success.  The more frequently people spent with us, the more chances they had of winning, which generated more customers, transactions and sales. 

Congratulations to Paul, we could all see what this prize meant to him, and to the branch team who work so hard to deliver consistently brilliant service, which keeps our customers coming back.”
