Team Transport a Winner

Trigg Team Van

At Trigg, we believe that our people are key to our success, so, as a business, we like to take care of them and their wellbeing. An example of this is our decision to provide transport for staff. With many of our builders living in Whangarei and working on projects in Marsden Point, about 40 minutes away, we decided to lay on a minibus to get them there and back in safety and comfort. “Construction is hard on the body and physically tiring, so having a long drive at the end of the day isn’t ideal for the health and safety of the team – and being able to take five or six cars off the road by having all the guys in the one vehicle is just better all round”, says Darrell.

Local business Keith Andrews helped us to select a suitable vehicle – a 12-seater, 2143cc Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission and an array of safety features, including Blind-Spot Assist, Active Brake Assist, Hill-Start Assist and Crosswind Assist. 

In an industry struggling with workforce shortages, Darrell reckons it’s good practice to provide additional benefits to staff – like good-quality transport options. ‘When people see you look after your people, it can help with recruitment and retention,” he says. “The environment we want to create is one where people enjoy what they do and want to come to work. Investing in a quality transport solution is part of that.”
