Driver Hire Manchester has historically covered the whole of the M and OL postcodes since 1989 (26 years) – a huge area to cover for one franchisee and one Driver Hire office. The organisation has been trading for over 31 years and 2015 proved to be a record year. The current franchisee has operated the business since September 2007 and found it extremely challenging to service the entire M and OL area, due to the geographical size and number of prospective customers.

Therefore, Driver Hire is missing out on huge amounts of potential business and the area has been reconfigured, to create an excellent opportunity for three new franchisees to join the network.

The current franchisee is selling the goodwill in this newly created area (existing customers and workers) i.e. there is some immediate revenue and an excellent base to build on.

This franchise opportunities for sale consist of the following postcodes:

Manchester West
M3,5,6,7,25-30, 38, 45-46

As the new franchisee you will be required to operate from office premises within the purchased territory and there is a licence fee payable to the franchisor of £12,500. The majority of new Driver Hire businesses operate from a serviced office, with the benefit of parking, flexible office space and often a reception desk. The cost of office premises will vary and we can provide assistance with selecting something suitable.

Revenue opportunities:
There are multiple ways for franchisees to generate revenue, including:
Supplying temporary and permanent staff. The core business for Driver Hire in the Manchester area is temporary, or temporary to permanent driving work; however, you can also generate additional revenue from permanent placements.
Providing classroom based driver training – it’s mandatory for all LGV drivers to receive regular, classroom-based training.
Selling Driver Hire’s e-learning and licence checking services.

Franchisee handover:
The current Director of the franchise will gladly help facilitate a smooth handover and is prepared to allow the purchaser to work in his office, for a period prior to the sale completing.

As the new franchisee you will need to recruit a member of staff to assist with operating the business. Help and guidance can be provided if required.
