About the job
Are you taking care of Boels Rental in Chippenham? In the morning, you start at 07.30 and fortunately the transport planning has already been completed. Together with your colleagues, you load all of the materials into the vans. You take your coffee ‘to-go’, because you are going to deliver the equipment early doors to the client. You are on your way to one of the customers and unfortunately get stuck in a traffic jam (typical!!!). Because you know how important it is to deliver on time, you call your colleagues at the Chippenham branch so that they can update the customer. Once you arrive, a dissatisfied contractor comes up to you. As a Driver, you know better than anyone how to smooth this over and you know how to apologise to the contractor, so that the situation results in a happy outcome. This way, you can quickly unload the contractors machines and move on to the next job and the next customer. When you are at the site, you also advise on the use of the machines, carefully check the technical condition and make sure that all of the required administration is done correctly. Your eye for detail is really important here!
At the end of the rental period, you collect all the equipment back from the customer, check it for defects and bring it back to the Chippenham branch. This way, the Mechanic can clean and check it all, so we can make the next customer happy again!
It can sometimes be hard physical work. But this is what enjoy doing. You roll up your sleeves and work as a team with your colleagues in Chippenham. You could be delivering anything from a small digger to a scissor lift. As a Driver at our Chippenham depot, you are an integral part of the hire team and are always open to assist your colleagues should there be a lull in your driving tasks. For this position, you will be finished at 17.00 each day (of course, there are occasionally exceptions). This means you'll have plenty of time to be with your family, play sports or hang out with your friends. Sounds good, right?
