Our team

Welcome to Driver Hire Uxbridge                                                      

Ed Pockney took over Driver Hire Uxbridge November 2014 and suddenly it is his 4th year and the CPC deadline in 2019 is fast approaching.
A lot has happened in that time, we extended the original office in 2016 and outgrew it entirely last year. We moved to our new office in Uxbridge in late 2017 and built the CPC Training Room in January 2018.
The business has continued to grow and we still specialise in HIAB work for a variety of Builders Merchants and niche companies. The number of HIAB drivers trained continues to rise and has now passed 50.
We work with ALLMI trainers now and find that the course is a good one for beginners (two days) and refreshers (one day). We are now upskilling more of our drivers than ever before on HIAB, Moffett & Forklift.
We are also working with Heathrow focussed hauliers and take our drivers through the Cargo Operative (old Level D) qualification. This requires verified five year work history, CRB check and then training in Air Cargo. We are confident in our compliance regime and reference checking and see this as a growing part of the business in 2018 and beyond.

Ed Pockney- Franchisee

Now in his 9th year with Driver Hire Uxbridge Ed remains as driven and focussed as day one. The focus must always be on the client and driver. These are the two key components of what we do at Driver Hire Uxbridge, understanding the skills and capabilities of our drivers and matching them to the operational needs of the client results in successful shifts for all concerned.

Over the years Ed has picked up his HGV and PCV licences and CPC qualifications and can be found out driving for clients on a regular basis. This helps understand exactly what the customer needs in their drivers and to relate to our drivers when discussing the best roles for each driver.

The key focus for my business is meeting client and candidate expectations. That we are always accessible, innovative in our responses and committed to high standards. We have built some great relationships with clients and drivers over the past few years and will look to continue that in 2018.

Frequently asked questions

How do I book CPC courses?

For drivers you can do one day or up to five days as you need.

Just call on 0203-056-7590 or email uxbridge@driverhire.co.uk and you can see our upcoming courses here.

How do I register?

You can register online via this website. Alternatively if you prefer, you can give us a call or just pop in. Quality is at the heart of all we do so we take our candidate registration process very seriously. Before we can offer you work you will need to attend a face-to-face interview.

When you come in to see us, you will need to bring certain key information with you. You must provide your National Insurance number, bank details and another form of ID such as a passport or birth certificate. Where relevant you will need to provide proof of your right to work in the UK.

For driving work we need to see your original driver’s licence (both parts if a photo card) and proof of any licence upgrades you hold. We always take up references on every candidate so please also provide phone numbers of two work related referees.

What type of work can you offer me?

We can offer you a wide range of different jobs. As well as lots of driving work, across all licence categories, we are always recruiting for many non-driving roles. Whether you are looking for part time work, a contract role or a long term career, we can help. Check out our online jobs board, phone or call in to find out more.

Can you arrange CPC Training for our drivers?

Yes, we can arrange everything from a complete solution for a multi-site customer with 100+ drivers to a single days training to top up a driver’s CPC training. Call us on 0203-056-7590 or email to discuss exactly what you need.

Can you arrange other training such as HIAB, Moffett, Forklift or Cargo Operative (old Level D)?

Yes, we work with a number of local trainers and can arrange training at your site on your equipment or at a third party venue. We invest a lot in training and upskilling our drivers and are happy to help any client do the same.

Are all your drivers fully compliant with relevant legislation?

Nothing is more important to Driver Hire than safety and full regulatory compliance. All Driver Hire drivers have to take a 150-point competency test before they are allowed to work for us and we provide ongoing updates on new rules and regulations as they are introduced. We also have bespoke IT systems in place to monitor the work our staff do for us.

You can be confident that any member of staff you take on from Driver Hire has been fully briefed on any relevant legislation.

Can you help me out at short notice?

Absolutely. Some people say it’s what we do best. As the UK’s leading specialist supplier of transport and logistics staff, we have an extensive database of high quality candidates ready to step in and help you out. 

You can call us any time of the day or night, 365 days a year and speak to a real person on the other end of the line. We know the pressures you are likely to operate under, so will take down the details of the person you need and if we can’t tell you instantly who we have available, we will get back to you within 15 minutes with a definite answer either way.

Can you help me with non-driving roles?

Yes. Driver Hire is about much more than driving. We can help you find the ideal candidate for just about any role connected with the transport and logistics industry. That includes drivers of course, but also warehouse staff, operations and back office roles, plant operatives, managerial staff and much more.

Check out ‘Looking for Staff’ for more information.

Do you just provide temps?

No. Our experience in the industry and our extensive candidate database means we are ideally placed to help you find long-term contract staff and of course, permanent employees. Our permanent recruitment service operates on a no success no fee basis and is backed up by generous guarantees.
