BEING A PARTNER
There are many options available for drivers at Roadrunners. Unlike many operators we operate a GREEN fleet and as such we encourage all vehicles to fall within that category.

In addition the following options are available to you.

1 . You can lease a BRAND NEW VEHICLE from us for a weekly charge. By leasing a vehicle you have no worries in relation to the maintenance of the vehicle. With the vehicle comes everything you need to be a RoadRunners driver. The equipment includes a datahead on which you receive all of your work, a radio for continued communications with the office staff, fully comprehensive insurance (including public liability). Full training is provided on the equipment you will utilize in the vehicle.

2 . Through our associate company you can purchase vehicles such as a BRAND NEW Skoda Octavia, Seat Alhambra or a Toyota Prius + directly. These cars are the most reliable and most commonly used by the company. Together with their GREEN credentials the return very high MPG rates. Vehicles can be financed via our associated finance company and the monthly payment depends on the amount of deposit you pay up front. In normal circumstances they can be financed over 1, 2 or 3 years. Unlike many facilities offered by car retailers it doesn’t matter how long you choose to finance to the vehicle. THE PAYMENTS ARE THE SAME.

3 . You can license your own vehicle with Reigate & Banstead Borough Council. Given it is your car you will be responsible for the cost of this vehicle. We would require all of the documentation for it including a copy of the license, your Hire and Reward insurance and MOT certificate.

Our Driver Liason Team will be happy to assist you with advice to help make the right decision for you. We are sure that choosing Roadrunners will be a great career choice and we look forward to welcoming you soon to our Team of Drivers.
