Driver Hire Glides Into 2018 With A Record-Breaking 2017
Driver Hire’s franchise record-breaking Christmas sets the tone for 2018.
Christmas was busier than ever for Driver Hire with an outpour of demands for the franchise’s team of workers and a record-breaking turnover in December that skyrocketed to £13.1m, a 14% increase from the same period in 2016.
When Drivers Hire’s chief executive officer, Chris Chidley, was asked to comment on the highly profitable holiday trading period, he said: “Once again there’s been a big demand for our service in the run-up to Christmas. As in previous years, the increasing percentage of online retail sales – which create more home deliveries – has played a significant part in our success. In addition, our core national account customers, for whom high-quality reliable service really matters, have also kept us exceptionally busy.”
Nearly a third of Drivers Hire’s 102 offices have surpassed the £2m turnover and six more offices expected to follow in their trails next month. Driver Hire’s business is not only reaching record levels in the UK, its Australian arm delivered a colossal 60% growth for the period, with a network record-breaking turnover of £1.51m, with its Brisbane office reporting a turnover of £116k in a single week.
“Our ability to deliver the right people to meet the demands of our customers, along with a highly compliant 24/7, 365 days a year service continues to set us in good stead. That is being reflected with strong trading, right across our network, both here in the UK and in Australia. I’d just like to thank everyone from our candidates to our office staff for the part they played in this success.” Concluded Chris Chidley.
