Carreva Limited was established in November 2012. The name Carreva was made up of the surnames of the two Directors Carty & Evans. This was the making of two couples, four friends who had a vision!
Our vision was to supply the best quality products, to the Professional Hair, Nail and Beauty Industry at the very best trade prices. We saw a niche area of Warrington where we thought a new Independent Wholesaler could provide a different kind of service.
We are a family run business and we pride ourselves on providing the personal touch to all of our customers nurturing and supporting them along the way. We opened our doors on the 5th June 2013 after a long six months turning the shell of our unit into the fantastic ‘Carreva Hair & Beauty Supplies’.
It was slow going at first but as time went on our name became more and more recognised both by Customers and Suppliers. Over the next few years we have added many new lines to our portfolio of products after researching the fashions and trends and listening to our customers ideas and demands. We do our absolute best to accommodate all customers whether it be a large Salon, Mobile Customer or a Student just starting out on their chosen career path, we do not discriminate.
This year 2019 saw us add a new van to the Carreva family, this has been instrumental in pushing our business forward as we have been able to advertise ourselves whilst at the same time delivering excellent quality brands to our customers.
On the 29th April 2019 Carreva Ltd became the victim of a third-party fire. This was completely accidental and out of anyone’s control. The damage caused by the fire totally destroyed our unit and as a result we have had to relocate.
We have decided that setting up on a smaller scale working from home would be a good option. As devastating as it was at the time and it could have been very easy to just ‘give up’.
We spent the next seven weeks restocking and remodelling our business. In the face of adversity, we have risen from the ashes with strength and courage.
So, as we have changed the way we are trading it made perfect sense to develop this new Mobile App by which all of our customers old and new can see exactly what stock we have at the touch of a button.
You are now able to pre order stock to collect or pre order stock to be delivered from the comfort of your Hairdressing Chair, Nail Desk or Beauty Bed!
With this extra way of ordering and checking our stock levels we are very excited to be in a position where we can build a great future with our existing customers whilst welcoming new ones into the Carreva fold.
Growing is all about change and moving forward, never being stationary and adapting to circumstances whatever they may be. Carreva Limited has been through a lot of changes in recent times but continues to move forward servicing our customers and giving the best possible prices, products and customer service to the Trade.
