Due to an ongoing driver shortage throughout our industry, we have had to increase wages substantially over the past few weeks and months. It is well publicised in the news that there is a shortage of HGV drivers, but this also applies to van drivers and we are finding that in order to retain and recruit quality drivers, we are having to pay them substantially more. We must now pass this on to our customers in order to keep providing the level of service we would like to. From 27/09/2021 our prices will increase across the board, with larger vehicles having a slightly larger increase. We will also be increasing our rates for London surcharges, waiting time, handball, additional collections and day hires.
We hope that this increase and the associated wage rises for our drivers, will allow us to continue to provide the high quality service that you are use to. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued business and valued partership.
