Who Are Driver Hire

Driver Hire has been in business for 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 plus 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.
