SELCO BUILDERS WAREHOUSE
“I am just reviewing the last year and as you know we had trouble finding the correct candidate to fill our HGV vacancy. In July we finally found Andrew but we didn’t know much about him and the skills he possessed. I came to you at the time as we didn’t have a fully trained assessor available and needed to fast track Andrew and integrate him into the business. After seeking clarity from my regional transport manager I came to you for help. You supplied Peter to provide an on the job assessment of Andrew and follow up training. Peter did a marvellous job, the report provided was clear and comprehensive and I’m pleased to report that Andrew is still with us and displaying the high standards that we expect of him. I would recommend to any other company with lorry loader trucks, to use this facility to either look at new or even existing drivers. This service has proven of value to our business which we will access again in the future.”
To summarise 2017 and all things transport as we rapidly approach the end of the year and I would like to thank you (Helen) and Tim for your incredible support this year. We have used you a number of times throughout the year, both planned and reactional, for vehicles or drivers or at times both. The process is always smooth and reliable from the frontline to the office staff and the professionalism from every colleague shines through. I’m looking forward to continuing into 2018 however on a selfish view with a lot less vehicle breakdowns on our part (fingers crossed)
“We as a company Buildbase Chessington, have been using QDL for around 3 years now and are very impressed with their service. We use them for hire of drivers to use on our own transport and we also use them for driver and lorry hire, when our trucks are off the road or as a facility to take on additional work. All the drivers are fully trained, know the area and are polite to ourselves and our customers. I would recommend them if and when asked too. The office staff are also very polite and willing to help at all times.”
PATON'S TRANSPORT CONSULTANT LTD
“It was a pleasure to meet you in Croydon today, and I also just wanted to say thank you, to you and QDL……1) For your hospitality. 2) For the warm welcome given to all visitors at your site today. 3) For your guidance on arrival. 4) For your help/assistance setting up.
It can often be a little daunting for trainers visiting unknown venues, so I do sincerely mean it when I say that I appreciated the time you gave today to myself, the cycle instructor team, and our delegates. In the last 18 months, I have visited quite a few training venues and I can honestly say that only a handful have been as welcoming as QDL. Please accept the comments I make as a gesture of goodwill, a compliment from one business to another.
I advise you of the above Tim because it really was a positive change for me today, it was refreshing to meet a fellow associate that genuinely cares, not just about the industry but I also got the distinct impression that you care about the “people” who keep the industry moving forward “The Drivers”. Today your aspirations were made abundantly clear, particularly in relation to the service you want to offer your clients. What stood out most when discussing the industry with you is your attitude towards developing an honest business, along with the passion and fire inside you to drive home the importance of transport safety, WRRR (work related road risk), education, training, and development. Keep these goals at the forefront of your business because I am sure it will be this ambition that stands you in good stead for the future.
CONSTRUCTION SITE SERVICES LTD
“I have recently attended and passed the ALLMI Lorry Loader course with QDL Training and thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The staff at QDL were very friendly and the trainer that delivered the course had a wide range of industry experience. The sessions were relaxed, but informative and comprehensive notes were provided for each of the elements studied. The trainer was helpful and knowledgeable. I will definitely be using QDL Training again & would highly recommend them to colleagues & acquaintances within the industry.”
TOMATO PLANT LTD
“Tomato Plant would like to thank QDL for the professional service they showed us in training our men to use a lorry loader crane, from booking stage with Tim, to on site training with Bonie, we found this a great service and will book again.”
GIBBS & DANDY - BUILDING SUPPLIES
“I have been using Quality Driving Ltd for over five years now and in that time they’ve been my go-to guys for driver cover. I’ve also recently started to use their new vehicle and driver service on the days when I need a bit more delivery capacity. Tim and his team are all first rate drivers and great people too. I’ve never been let down by them and I wouldn’t even contemplate using anyone else.”
HARRIS & BAILEY - BUILDERS MERCHANTS
“We have been dealing with Tim Brown the Managing Director of Quality Driving Ltd since 2011. All of his drivers we have dealt with have full DCPC qualification, are polite and professional at all times. We would recommend this Company and Harris and Bailey will continue to work closely with Tim as his business develops.”
“I have worked within the Builders Merchants Industry in central London for 17 years now. As a generalisation I would suggest when it comes to using driver agencies, the majority of which tend to be a liability. Not looking after our vehicles, short or uncooperative with our customers. Usually best to park your truck and await your regular drivers return to work…
6 years ago I met with Tim who was facilitating an ongoing contract for a store I became manager of. Having seen the extremes he goes to, personally screening all the drivers he employs, ensuring they match our demanding ambitions and expectations. I no longer have reservations covering my drivers, just piece of mind! Need a driver call Quality Drivers!!! ”
