This month brings some fantastic news for Hireco. Not only are we proud sponsors of the ‘Service to Industry’ prize at the Commercial Motor Awards of 2017, but we have also ended up on the shortlist for the “Rental, Leasing and Contract Hire Provider of the Year.”
The Commercial Motor Awards are a new, annual celebration for the industry, with the aim of putting some focus on the best suppliers of trucks and/or trailers in the country over the past year. It started last year, and judges look for a broad range of evidence of the first-class service and put a magnifying glass on everything from customer satisfaction through to compliance and fleet management.
It’s an incredibly important and prestigious event that showcases all the good work being done by motor companies, and highlights outstanding achievements. At the black-tie event, people from all over the country turn up in style, sit down to a dinner, watch the presentations, and then enjoy after dinner entertainment.
Last year at the awards, winners included huge names like PM Commercials and Close Brothers Asset Finance won awards for Independent Dealer of the Year and Finance Provider of the Year respectively - and we all have our fingers crossed that we might get on the winner’s list amongst such luminaries this year. Our shortlisting is for a brand new category, which is exciting - who knows which name out of the shortlist will eventually be the first to win it?
Regardless, the shortlisting is a testament to all the work our incredible workforce have been doing over the past year with our customers. It’s a massive achievement. In a year that’s seen us place an order of 1,300 trailers - our biggest ever - and place over 80% of our fleet on valued contract hire deals, we believe we are going in the right direction. And it seems the judges think we’re hitting the right notes, too!
As a company that always strives for excellence, it’s nice to get recognition, and it’s certainly a sign that we are doing things right for our customers. That said, we still have a serious job to do in the evening, so won’t be getting too carried away. As sponsors of the "Service to Industry" Award, we will be watching with keen eyes to await the judge's decision.
With over 40 years of experience in the asset financing market, we’re glad to be involved in the evening in any way we can. Being up for an award ourselves is fantastic recognition, and we wish all of our other shortlisted competitors - Asset Alliance Group, Fraikin, Seven Asset Management, and TOM Vehicle Rental - all the best. Regardless of the outcome, we’re sure it’s going to be a great night, highlighting some of the critical work and progress the commercial motor trade does every year.
