We operate as an agent matching the clients’ needs with van operators in their area
Vanquotes.ie started with 4 drivers in 2006 and has grown to now have over 600 registered operators on its books. We act as a middle man generating leads and passing them on to drivers in the correct area with the correct sized van. It’s a network of “man with a van” operators connecting every corner of Ireland. Its uses SMS and emails to inform drivers instantly when a lead is put live. A limit of 4 can buy the lead and tender for the job.
We noticed the “man with a van” industry was growing rapidly and people were getting leads through conventional methods such as Google AdWords and Intense SEO combat. Many of the leads they were paying for were in the wrong area or the operators were already busy on those days. These were wasted leads, paid for with no return. What we do is generate the leads and offer them to the drivers. They can choose to tender or ignore at no cost. It increased the value of Euro spent to Job lead. Knowing the exact town for a pick up and a drop off is invaluable information before buying a lead.
The sales technique is still key when it comes to winning a tender. People do not always go for the best price. They want to feel reassured when talking to the company they are giving responsibility to look after their belongings. A good sales pitch, backed up with a competetive price wins the day. The website self regulates with reviews left after the completion of the job.
