Who we are
Driver Hire has been in business for over 30 years and has been franchising its award-winning business model since 1987.
Driver Hire is well known in the industry as the UK’s leading supplier of drivers and logistics staff. Our core business is to supply temporary drivers to customers that have a fleet of vehicles, for example if one of their current drivers calls in sick or goes on holiday they still have a vehicle that needs to go from A to B. So they call their nearest office and hire a Driver Hire driver.
This means that every day our 100+strong branch network provides thousands of workers, mainly on temporary assignments, to a wide variety of customers ranging from international hauliers and major retailers to builders merchants, parcel delivery companies and local authorities.
A trusted brand
We are full members of the British Franchise Association and in ten of the last eleven years have been finalists in the bfa's prestigious ‘Franchisor of the Year’ competition, winning the silver award in 2015, the bronze award in 2012 and the award outright in 2006.
As a Driver Hire franchisee you should be able to achieve a net profit of over £120,000 per annum (10k per month). In 2015/16 the average full year turnover of our franchised offices (single unit) was £1,076,196 and 49% had a turnover of over £1 million.
