Driver Hire Colchester: Supporting businesses for a quarter of a century
Driver Hire Colchester is celebrating 25 years in business and ever since opening its doors on 10 January 1996, it has gone from strength to strength.
For a quarter of a century, Driver Hire Colchester has been providing round-the-clock service to a wide variety of local businesses and has been finding work for local people on a daily basis.
Driver Hire is a leading nationwide provider of logistics recruitment and Driver CPC training services. Gary Riches joined the franchise over eight years ago and since taking over the Colchester branch, he has expanded its portfolio of services locally to include engineering, industrial and commercial recruitment.
More recently, they expanded their services again, this time to provide ‘man with a van’ courier services. This service was launched at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic when local Colchester businesses needed extra delivery support during the national lockdown.
As well as supporting businesses across the CO postcode with these valuable services, Gary and his team have more recently been providing helpful and insightful resources to professional drivers – no matter where they are in the country – including educational videos from how to sanitise vehicles during Covid-19 to how to use ratchet straps.
Gary is also the co-founder and co-presenter of the Driver Hire Podcast, alongside Tony Goacher (Driver Hire Croydon & Sutton) which was launched in 2020. Their Podcasts have covered an array of topics from ‘what makes a great agency driver’ to ‘the purpose of a daily walk-around’ and have been well received within the driving community.
Driver Hire Colchester is part of the UK’s largest specialist supplier, Driver Hire, which has a nationwide network of franchised offices. They provide temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If a client is short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
