Auckland Hop On/Hop Off Explorer

Thank you for the excellent service you provided for our extra driver requirements over the 2015/16 summer.  Brent and Sean were both very professional, good drivers, had excellent communication and customer service skills and fitted in with our existing staff perfectly. We look forward to an ongoing business relationship with Driver Guide Hire Limited.

Kiwi Experience

We have used Driver Guide Hire on a few occasions over our busy summer period. DGH were able to provide us with the right Driver/Guide for the specific jobs, needed who were able to fit in with our dynamic team and work environment. DGH will definitely be used to supply Driver/Guides when our workload exceeds our staff numbers again.

Stray Travel Network

Stray Ltd has a hop on/hop off bus network NZ wide, we provide off the beaten track experiences for adventurous travellers. Due to the dynamics of our business we require driver guides to be away for long periods of time, they go as far as Stewart Island and we require the industries best for our trips. Having enough great crew is always a problem just as waiting for a P licence to come through is.

These are problems we face year round, before we worked with Driver Guide Hire I would find myself out on the road covering trips or just plan stressed out with a roster that was like a block of Swiss cheese with holes right through it. It would take me away from making the company perform at its best. This is now not a problem, if we are short staffed we call DGH and they will have a driver guide for us. My concern was quality but I can comfortably say the crew from DGH have done an outstanding job driving and guiding for us on all the jobs they have taken on no matter how varied they are! DGH help us stay dynamic and operate and perform at our best.

I've worked with the Driver Guide Hire crew for a while now for a random/diverse range of projects, and they never fail to absolutely nail it. They operate in a very enthusiastic, professional and pro-active way, and even more importantly they always do so with a smile on their face. I always look forward to working with these guys as I know it's going to be fun and I know I'm going to get whatever I need done without a problem. Use them!

Fullers Group Ltd & Waiheke Island Bus Company

I was approached by Driver Guide Hire to pen a few words together about my experience with them. Three years ago I had my first association with this company and I have had them contracting to me ever since. Over the years that they have contracted to me, I have never had a reason to question the quality of the drivers they have supplied. Their vetting process is very good and the calibre of their drivers is second to none. I have enjoyed the relationship I have with them and will continue to use their services on a regular basis.The advantages to me as a Manager are I didn't have to employ full time drivers and find work when it wasn't available. There drivers come in and do what is necessary and leave again. They have high standards for their drivers to maintain and this includes driver appearance, personality, driver abilities, and bus cleanliness. I have found it a very cost effective remedy to an age old problem of finding bus operators on a part time basis. I fully endorse the concept and if anyone has any questions about my experiences I can be contacted any time.

We have used the great services from DGH in an urgent situation where we were in a spot without one of our own road crew team, the feedback we received from our passengers was sensational, a very professional, prompt and truly experienced team of Drivers and Guides for touring New Zealand.

Ruapehu Alpine Lifts

Sourcing quality bus drivers to work seasonally at Turoa Ski Area, has always been a challenge. We’ve employed a number of staff who have looked good on paper, interviewed well and started work looking promising. But more often than not, they haven’t turned out to be as good as what I would like. Then I tried Driver Guide Hire.

Each driver I’ve hired has turned out to be excellent in all aspects. The quality of their driving skills in an alpine environment, when road conditions are often hazardous, are up there with some of the best. Safety is a priority with this crew and the feedback I received from both staff and customers was always positive. The flexibility offered by DGH is also a huge plus. If one of the drivers didn’t work out, for what ever reason, I knew that I could always have a replacement driver here within a day or two. If I was approaching a busy period and needed another driver, they were only a phone call away.

I would highly recommend DGH to anyone who is looking for contractor drivers because they have always delivered. They are a pleasure to work with and their staff are good at what they do. I’m looking forward to a long relationship with DGH.

Around Waiheke Tours

I operate a tour company on Waiheke Island with three twenty seater buses. Because of the seasonal nature of the work and fluctuating demand it is not practical to have permanent staff. I have used DGH to help me manage my demand for drivers and have found that the arrangement works well for my business. I will continue to use them in the future.
