removing plastic decals from workvan

As I am changing my business name and moving from a franchise I NEED to remove the stickers off the van.

Any ideas to assist removal? So far I having been slowly scraping them off using hot water and goo remover. (and the Sun when it out, Should have contemplated doing it in Summer!!!) They have been on for 8 years so are not that pliable.

I have friends that put decals on race cars all the time and they get them off with a heat gun. Seeing as you probably don't have one, try a blow dryer.

Cooking oil is the perfect solution to remove sticky goo from a plastic surface. Remove as much of the sticker as possible and then saturate the residue with a bit of cooking oil. Let the oil soak down into the sticker and then immerse the plastic in water. The sticker should just wipe away.
