WHY BECOME A HGV DRIVER?
No Shortage Of Work
One of the best things about becoming an HGV driver is that there is no shortage of work out there. In fact, the only thing running short is drivers! With more businesses and retailers popping up every day, the haulage industry is under pressure to hire new drivers to take on the abundance of work.
Set Your Own Hours
As an independent HGV driver, you have the power to set your own hours and even your own location. There is high demand for drivers across the entire UK. So if you decide to move across the country with your family, you will be able to pick up work again quickly.
Assured Job Security
The haulage industry is one that just isn’t going away – no matter how advanced technology gets. Good, qualified drivers will always be in demand.
High Earning Potential
Because it’s in such high demand, HGV driving is a great way to increase your earning potential. A full time, fully qualified HGV driver can earn upwards of £30,000 a year, depending on whether you’re an independent driver or employed with a company. If you go the employed route, many companies also give bonuses for good safety ratings, different licenses and even length of service.
Without HGV deliveries, the country would grind to a halt. So at the end of the day, HGV drivers feel a sense of pride knowing they’ve made a real difference to people’s lives. HGV driver turnover is pretty low because the people who are in it are doing what they love.
