Business Initiative

Thinking outside the box does work

Published 12/04/2013 00:00:00

I recently purchased some furniture and the store wanted £100 to deliver it. With my frugal hat on I decided to investigate hiring a van and getting my hands dirty. I came across iCanhire, a van service that allows customers to rent a van for a period as little as an hour. The vans are sporadically located around the UK and when the drivers credentials are checked and completed with the DVLA you can walk up to any available van, input a digital code and remotely unlock the vehicle.

The technology involved is automated and secure allowing people to use larger vehicles at a whim. It’s a great initiative and one that is testing the boundaries of what is possible without human intervention. I admired innovation and ideas that create and help the Small Business Community move forward, in this case it was as simple as allowing people to reduce their costs but still have quick and easy access to larger wheel based transport. Let us know if you have any innovative ideas that will drive the SME community, you never know – we might be able to help. Good luck to iCarhire as they go through their initial development stage.
