Vehicle and Driver Hire
You may find yourself in need of a driver to deliver to multiple separate destinations spanning across the day, which can work out very expensive to book separately. Therefore, we can offer a Day Hire service at a highly competitive set rate to minimise costs to you and can usually dispatch at a moment’s notice.
The driver will report to you at the start of the Day Hire for instructions on what goods to deliver. If feasible (taking into account weight, volume and time), the driver can also arrange to collect goods en route to deliver back to you.
The driver will return your paperwork to you at the end of their Day Hire, where you will then be asked to sign a PDA to confirm receipt of completed delivery notes and any collections. Additionally, you can email or fax any notes to our control centre, which we forward to the driver’s PDA, providing live electronic proof of delivery “as it happens”.
All drivers are equipped with in cab mobile communications, complemented with state of the art satellite tracking systems for real-time progress and delivery updates.
We can also usually help out with any additional collections or deliveries, which is particularly useful should a driver on hire to you get delayed at a delivery or collection point. We can arrange for one of our nearby vehicles to meet the delayed vehicle, in order to relieve some of the workload (deliveries or collections) and therefore keep to schedule.
With over twenty years in the industry, we are specialists in this type of work, so your goods and reputation are safe in our hands.
