Location and easy access to transport routes are key factors for all our centres. They are also why Driver Hire, based in the Capital Business Centre in Croydon, chose us.

Driver Hire is a nationwide company that offers recruitment services to the transport industry. Driver Hire’s Croydon director, Tony Goacher, explains how he came to work at the franchise: ‘I was a Class 1 Driver in the early nineties, collecting wine from Southern France each week. I then started as an agency driver – within a week I’d taken a job on the other side of the desk. Driver Hire has over 104 offices now, including ours. We therefore have true national coverage for centrally contracted customers but delivered with an owner-operated personal service.’ 

CapitalSpace’s convenience  

Driver Hire need to be able to get on the road quickly, which is why they chose CapitalSpace: ‘We needed to be central to our franchised area, with easy parking for our drivers and the ability to rent rooms for our training courses. The business centre feels modern, well maintained and professional – a good fit for the business image that we want to portray. The unit itself (with a little adaption of our own) met our needs perfectly.’ 

Future endeavours  

Driver Hire Croydon is looking to expand its customer base: ‘We have an aggressive growth plan, which will see business double in three years’ time and we are currently ahead of our target. Because of this, expansion of training courses may require a second unit at CapitalSpace. We measure the success of the company through profit, of course, but also comparison with other Driver Hire offices and the satisfaction of both our drivers and customers.’ 

Like CapitalSpace, Driver Hire are obviously determined to bring the utmost support and high-quality service to both their customers and their employees. It’s great to work with likeminded customers who flourish at our centres.
