Clients Questions
Why are you different to a normal driving agency?
95% of our drivers are permanent employees on a contract with full employee benefits. They are not temporary staff or casual drivers.
Back to top
What difference does employee status make?
Drivers know they have a guaranteed wage, making them less inclined to spin out the job to increase their wages. As we retain the best drivers our staff turnover is lower so we can place drivers with confidence.
Back to top
I can hire drivers for less, so where is your value for money?
You only get what you pay for. An inexperienced temporary agency driver with no guaranteed wages or commitment to your business may cost you far more in the long term. Cost savings through using our professional drivers can be substantial: lower diesel costs, less returned goods, increased customer satisfaction etc.
Back to top
Can I request the same driver again?
You can keep him for as long as you need him. On subsequent occasions we will supply the same driver if he is available and not on contract to another client. However, over a period of time you are likely to be supplied with drivers you have had before, which saves time in having to explain your rules and procedures all over again.
Back to top
How can I be sure of a regular supply of drivers?
You can't, but we will do our best as you will be aware of the national shortage of good LGV drivers. This problem is affecting both large and small companies, who increasingly have to stand vehicles. At 1 Call we address the problem by recruiting the best people available and rewarding them with on-going training (ADR hazardous goods, HIAB crane, FLT and class 4 airport security certification) and permanent jobs. In other words, we invest in the future to ensure driver availability.
Back to top
Will your staff understand my needs?
Experienced transport managers who understand your needs staff our control room. Our aim is to get it right first time to ensure repeat business. We will refuse a booking rather than send an unsuitable driver.
Back to top
Will I get my Tachographs back?
We provide a full Tachograph care and return service. Drivers have to hand in their Tachographs with their time sheets. They have to stand a deduction if any are missing, so this is rarely a problem. Every Thursday you will receive the previous weeks Tachographs in a special envelope. Fridays is retained by the driver in order to comply with the law and returned to you the following week.
Back to top
Do your drivers know the driver's hours and Tachograph rules?
All Drivers need to pass our Working Hours and Tachograph examination. Before being interviewed by our CPC/FTA trained staff, drivers are questioned carefully to ensure they understand the rules and have not just studied a book on the way to the interview. If they do not have enough experience or are not the right calibre to join our organisation they do not get employed.
Back to top
Do your drivers wear a uniform?
Drivers are issued with smart blue uniforms and hi-vis jackets before they start with 1 Call Driving
Back to top
Are driver's backgrounds checked for honesty and work performance?
All applicants have a thorough interview with one of our transport management team. References, both verbal and written, are taken up. Past work performance and accident record with former employers are taken into account. All drivers supplied are covered by £1,000 of fidelity bonding insurance at no extra charge. Clients with more valuable loads can request cover at a charge. Since we give drivers a contract of employment, we are obviously careful who we employ.
Back to top
Can you guarantee consistent quality?
No we supply people not baked beans, they are not all the same, some have different skills and strengths but they are all good drivers with a provable driving history. 1 Call Driving are members of the Freight Transport Association, the Road Haulage Association and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, we operate to our own high standards and encourage client feedback.
Back to top
Can I take one of your drivers onto my books?
1 Call Driving invests a considerable sum into recruiting and training drivers to provide you, our customers, with a first class service. We do not encourage clients to recruit our drivers thereby reducing our ability to service their needs. An introduction fee is applied to any 1 Call Driving driver employed directly by you. This will however be waived if you contact us and we agree to a 13 week temp to perm arrangement.
Back to top
Why don't you offer a 24-hour service?
Quality staff cost money.
We believe that every call answered is important a transport specialist at his desk will answer your call each weekday between 0530 - 2200 hours and on a weekend between 0730 - 2200 hours.
Back to top
Drivers common questions
Why are you different to a normal temporary driving agency?
A temp agency gives you a temporary contract and no commitment, if they are busy you will get work, if they are quiet you will get no work and no money. 1 Call Driving is different we commit to you. you get offered a proper full time contract with a guaranteed rate and minimum earnings.
Back to top
What is the difference between a temporary contract and a permanent contract?
A temporary contract is basically like self employment it is only in force during the job and gives you very little rights. A permanent contract gives you full employment rights and is a two way commitment between the employer (us) and the employee (you).
Back to top
As a permanent driver what happens if you send me to a company that I don't like or assign me to work I'm not happy with?
Everybody has companies that they don't like or jobs they don't like doing, that's ok with us we are the largest driver supplier in our area we have lots of different clients and a large number of drivers so usually we can swap things around and make everybody happy.
Back to top
Will I have to travel far to work?
We always try to keep travel to a minimum, generally we do not like drivers to be traveling more than 30 minutes to work. The large number of drivers we have employed and our large client base also makes it easier to find work close to your home.
Back to top
How can I be sure of a regular supply of work?
You can't, in an industry with busy and quiet times, sometimes we have drivers stood. But we believe that's our problem not yours. If we can't find you work then we will pay you your guaranteed amount anyway.
Back to top
Do I have to wear a uniform?
Yes, you are issued with smart blue uniforms and hi-vis jackets before you start with 1 Call Driving.
Back to top
Is it true that agency drivers get the worse runs and vehicles.
If you come and join us you are our employee and we expect you to be treated with respect by the clients we send you to. If this is not the case we take action even if that means losing the client.
Back to top
If I like a client can I go and work for them?
You are free to work for who you like, we have a contractual agreement with our clients but usually we just transfer you over to the client after a 13 week notice period.

The difference is in the quality

We only ever employ the most professional drivers,
we look after our drivers, so they look after you

Of course our drivers are free to move around the different agencies, but they always prefer to work for us. Our drivers uphold our good name and we are proud of all of them to be working for us.

With unemployment running at an all time low and a national shortage of decent drivers it is a simple fact that most drivers who are employable can get a job.
The shrinking pool of drivers left to do temporary work, consists of:
  • Good drivers who, for their own reasons do not wish to commit to a full time job
  • Drivers who can't obtain employment
Our drivers choose to work for us because they want to, not because they have to.
Need a driver?

Drivers available throughout the North.

Whether it be a short notice absence of your own driver,
a planned holiday or simply that your current "agency" has let you down AGAIN. When you need an experienced driver to deliver your goods in a safe and timely and above all, legal manner.
Call us, we supply drivers who.
  • Are experienced and motivated.
  • Are guaranteed to turn up, backed by compensation.
  • Are able to follow instructions and keep in touch.
  • Are assigned with the skills to match your requirements.
  • Are clean, presentable and uniformed.
  • Carry identity cards and licences.
  • Wear safety boots and Hi Vis jackets.

by transport professionals who understand your needs, always providing you with an honest answer.

When you call 1 Call Driving Solutions we give you:

  • Instant Answers
  • No Waffle.
  • No False Promises.
  • No time wasting.
  • You usually only find out how good a service is when things go wrong!
    As the largest specialist provider of drivers in the North of England we are big enough to provide a high level of service and as a family firm we are still small enough to care passionately about our business and the quality of service we deliver.
    It's an emergency!

    It's 06.15 Monday morning and you've just found out
    that your driver isn't coming in today and his load
    should be already on the road and on its way!!!

    Do you:

    (1) Phone your customers and tell them that they can't have their delivery today, damaging your hard earned reputation?
    (2) Start a mad phone session ringing round all the local agencies, hoping to start with that someone will answer, then keeping your fingers crossed that they have a driver with the right skills.
    (3) Phone 1 Call Driving Operations desk for an immediate answer, we have tranined transport professions on the phones from 6am, 7 days a week. And we always make sure that we have our up to date driver availability no matter when you call, saving your precious time.
    Value for money

    A term often used by other companies,
    but rarely achieved.

    We know that delivering value is NOT just about offering the lowest quote.
    Drivers from the cheapest of agencies who take their time so that they can maximise on overtime could cost you severely. When you need a driver to deliver your goods without damaging your vehicle, the goods carried or your reputation, 1 Call Driving should be your one and only call. By using our professional drivers you can achieve significant savings, here's how:
    • Greater productivity
    • Fewer accidents
    • Lower diesel costs
    • Better utilisation of your vehicles
    • Happy clients
    • Late last year we introduced a brand new, revolutionary staggered charge rate system, where the more notice you give us to fill your booking, the less we charge you, call our operations team for the detailed rates

    Fed up with agency drivers not turning up?

    When you book an agency driver, the last thing you need is for the driver not to turn up at all, or to arrive and discover that he hasn't got the relevant skills or experience to do the job. We are so confident in the quality of our drivers and our service, we happily offer this guarantee:

    If we agree to supply you with a driver and fail to do so without giving you 12 hours prior notice we will pay you £100.

    Where the client fails to inform us within 45 minutes of a driver's non attendance. Where a replacement driver arrives within 60 minutes of the time the drivers absence was notified to us.
    We provide a high quality driver hire service

    We have tried to include all relevant client
    and job seeker information on this website.

    If you can't find the information you require on this website
    please contact us and we will assist you.

    Tachograph care and return service.

    Have you ever hired a temporary driver from
    an agency, then spent hours trying to
    get hold of your Tachographs?

    We at 1 Call Driving understand that incorrect and missing tachographs can put your Operations Licence at risk. The manpower, cost and time spent chasing missing Tachographs increases the overall cost of an agency making them an even less attractive solution to your problem.
    To remove this unnecessary burden from you we operate an effective Tachograph care and return service. All Tachographs are scanned into our computer system and then delivered to you within 14 days to ensure your administration is kept to a minimum.

    Level 4 Security Training is carried out

    agencies Driver Negligence policy

    We are proud of the team of drivers we have assembled. The quality and professionalism of our drivers is our best advert. As a client, you are the one to benefit from this experience.

    Category B (Ordinary Licence, Light Van)

    Our van drivers still conform to the standards
    we set for our LGV drivers

    We only employ exceptional class B drivers. They need to impress us with their attitude, driving skill and be smart and reliable.
    Because we employ them we have to be very careful who we set on. We will not consider anyone who has not worked for a living as a delivery driver before (parcels and pallets not pizzas).
    We don't have any labourers on our books so unlike some we won't be sending you one when you ask for a DRIVER!
    We supply drivers

    Sorry but we don't supply donkeys
    try somewhere else!

    We believe that in order to be a specialist you must concentrate on one discipline so we don't supply Industrial Staff, Carpenters or Secretaries either.

    But we do supply drivers and by concentrating on what we do best we remain focused on providing a 1 rate driver supply service to our clients.

    Working Time Road Transport Regulations

    Take a look at our jargon busting mini-site

    Goverments don't make regulations easy to read and it took us a long time to decipher the regulations and translate them into something that the average man or woman in the street could read and understand without taking evening classes.
    After sending all our drivers the facts in an easy to read booklet, we had lots of requests from clients and other agencies' drivers to explain the Working Time Road Transport Regulations to them.

    To help answer these requests and to further increase the understanding of this complicated subject we have created a mini Working Time (Road Transport) Regulations website.
    Visit our Working Time (Road Transport) Regulations website.
