Haulaway MD Richard Hilbert explains how he has expanded the firm’s fleet and is keeping it running thanks to a flourishing working relationship with Bucher Municipal.
With its 36-strong eye- catching green and black painted fleet decorated with a logo of a smiling crocodile waving an Australian flag, it’s hard to miss a Haulaway truck around metropolitan Melbourne. Expanding this fleet and keeping it on the road is a priority for Haulaway’s Managing Director Richard Hilbert.
An Australian family owned and operated commercial waste management business that has been running for more than 30 years, Haulaway supplies firms in the greater Melbourne area with static compactors, bulk, front lift and rear lift bins, and source-separated collection services.
“We are a family firm specialising in waste and recycling management, and logistics,” explains Richard. “But we also provide full sustainability and reporting services, helping organisations demonstrate their performance on diversion from landfill and against environmental key performance indicators.”
Richard’s team reviews their clients’ waste streams and advises on the best way of handling them. The aim is to address their waste management needs cost-effectively, balancing their desire to achieve better environmental and economic outcomes.
“I think we offer a great personalised service, with full due diligence,” says Richard. “When we go to see a client, we do a full review of their requirements.”
A growing fleet
Over the years, Haulaway has adapted and grown to provide the services its customers want. The firm now has 47 employees and a fleet of 36 trucks with front lift, rear lift, hook lift, bulk haulage and walking floor applications, as well as semi-tippers and tautliners.
Richard says Haulaway has long prided itself on its customer-focused approach to business, and he expects the same from the suppliers. This expectation prompted a working relationship with Bucher Municipal for the supply and service of waste vehicles, which has developed over the past two years.
