Driver Hire Manchester West is part of the national award-winning brand Driver Hire Nationwide, a management franchise operating in the recruitment sector.

This particular franchise resale is your opportunity to develop and run a very successful and profitable recruitment business within Manchester. This particular territory covers the following postcodes: M3, 5-7, 25-30, 38, 45-46.

As a Driver Hire business owner you'll specialise in providing staff to the transport & logistics sector, serving clients in both the private and public sector. Customer sectors are very wide-ranging and include, haulage, parcel delivery, retail, construction, oil and gas, recycling and local councils. The number of potential customers for our franchisees is huge. Essentially any company that operates a fleet of vehicles.

Driver Hire is a very well-established business in the Manchester area, supplying customers from 1989 to present. One Driver Hire office (Driver Hire Manchester) historically covered the whole of the M and OL postcodes - a huge and challenging area to cover for one franchisee and one office.

Therefore, Manchester was split into more manageable territories, to help Driver Hire cover the Manchester area more effectively, and provide opportunities for new franchisees. As a result, Driver Hire Manchester West opened for business in March 2017. The new franchisee has steadily grown the business and the database of candidates and clients.

The franchisee moved to the UK in 2016 and has no ties to the Manchester area. They have been handed a business opportunity in another part of the UK, which they feel is better suited for their family, and therefore, they have reluctantly decided to sell their Driver Hire business.

The franchisee is selling the goodwill (existing customers and workers) i.e. there is some immediate revenue and a good base to build on.

Financial details will be provided on enquiry and profit figures once a non-disclosure agreement has been signed.

Established for over 30 years, Driver Hire's success as a franchised business is based upon a proven franchise formula which combines a market-leading brand name, robust business systems and comprehensive training and support.

Driver Hire is also four times award winner of the bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year award, winning the silver award in 2017 and ranks third in the latest Elite Franchise Top 100 listing.

In the 2016/17 financial year
• 48% of Driver Hire franchises achieved sales of over £1million
• 71% achieved sales of over £750,000
• 86% achieved sales of over £500,000
• The average franchise turnover (single unit) was £1,106,427

This is a great achievement when you consider that the franchise industry’s average turnover is currently £378,400, according to the 2015 bfa/ NatWest Franchise Survey.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

There is still certainly plenty of scope for significant growth with this particular business.

For example, the huge increase in home shopping has stimulated demand for multi-drop delivery drivers. In addition to supplying temporary drivers, Driver Hire franchisees can generate revenue from providing permanent staff, delivering classroom based driver training and selling further complimentary products and services e.g. an online driving licence checker and online learning modules.

Competition / Market:

We operate in a competitive environment but the benefits of an extremely strong brand, a proven business process and central support combined with the hard work, motivation and commitment of the franchise owner provide a competitive edge that has seen Driver Hire consistently succeed where others have failed.
