Security firm calls on Driveline to acquire specially modified trucks for cash transport.
Cash transport firm Grange Security works with several high end retail and banking clients to transport cash and valuables safely and securely throughout Auckland. Vehicles are a vital part of the business, and Grange Security has relied on Driveline since its inception to help access modified, secure vehicles that meet industry standards.
Director Mike Grange tells his story
“As a contractor to some large firms, we transport cash to and from retail outlets and banks. The vehicles we use have to meet high industry standards. They must be modified to include things like bullet-proof glass and alarms.
“In the 15 years that Grange Security has been in business, we’ve relied on Driveline to help us acquire probably five vehicles, the most recent was a modified Toyota Hiace. Usually, we’re aware of the vehicles we want. They’re not commonplace in the market, and once they’ve been modified, they tend to stay within the industry. We let them know what we’re looking at, and we sort out all the financing through Driveline.
“Driveline recognises that we need to be competitive in the marketplace, and they support us there. It’s simple, really. I find the vehicle I want. Driveline negotiates the price and handles the financing.
“The last vehicle we purchased was located in Wellington. Lance [Manins, Driveline Managing Director] organised a guy at Turner’s Auctions to make several checks on the truck. He then negotiated the deal through the auction process, and a couple of days later I flew down and picked it up. It was brilliant. It was so easy.
“I could go to the bank for the next vehicle and get the money that way, but the bank isn’t going to arrange for someone at Turner’s, for instance, to take my vehicle around the block, and they aren’t going to negotiate a better price on my behalf. Using Driveline makes good sense.”
