Drivers

Our drivers offer a high degree of flexibility in the duties they undertake. They not only offer a safe way to get you where you need to go but are also happy to help you with other types of home care support. They can combine driving duties with accompanying you to appointments, as well as helping out with tasks in your home, running errands, or other flexible duties as required.

Artisan Aunties’ drivers are all diligent, discreet and offer complete confidentiality. They are safe, dependable and are willing to work long hours.

Planning routes, taking notes of possible detours along the way, and monitoring the severity of traffic is a necessity and one that our experienced drivers take very seriously. They want to minimise anxiety and stress to give you peace of mind that you’ll have a comfortable journey and know you’re going to get there on time. They will co-ordinate with you to arrange your pickups and drop-offs to ensure your appointments are managed effectively.

    Drivers are happy to use their own vehicle or one supplied by you if that’s what you’d prefer. All insurance needs are covered in the Terms of Business.

    Vehicle maintenance is of great importance and your driver will arrange for regular servicing to be carried out on either your vehicle or their own. Drivers are also responsible for the cleanliness of the interior and exterior of the vehicle, ensuring any vehicle is clean and tidy before your journey.

    You have the option of employing a driver direct through Artisan Aunties or using us as a service provider. Any additional costs incurred will be funded by you at the time or in advance.
