Established in 1997, Prohire has gone from strength to strength, winning both new business contracts and increasing its share of existing customer fleets. Such continuous growth is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Prohire team in delivering best advice, fleet compliance, uptime management and customer satisfaction.

Its best advice approach to fleet management solutions not only maximises uptime and minimises expense, but also ensures complete compliance, best practice, management reporting and high-quality husbandry of valuable assets. Prohire’s mission is to ensure that its customers operate the most efficient commercial vehicles in terms of both whole life cost and uptime, through best advice and total commitment to fleet management compliance.
