When I started out as a courier I was as green as it gets. I knew virtually nothing. I came from a background of print and web design. The main reason I moved to transport was because I had made a website for a friend and he wasn’t bothering to use it, so I did. Plus, I’d had enough of working in offices making websites for other people.
So there I was. Van on the drive, my own website getting a few enquiries and a couple of adverts online. I started sub-contracting with someone local (who turned out to be a crook), but I needed access to more work.
Delivering the information couriers need.
That’s when I got chatting to someone in a loading bay one evening. He said ‘Are you on the websites?’ Er…Which websites exactly? I mentioned I had joined one, but he told me not to bother with that and to head over to somewhere else. That’s when I really got started as a courier.
It was a few years later that I realised that so many couriers don’t know where their money is best spent on finding extra work. There are lots of websites that claim to have lots of courier work available. But the reality is, there are huge differences in what’s actually out there. And that’s why I took it upon myself to review and recommend the best courier work websites.
It’s true though that you can lead a Horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Whilst I’ve done plenty of research into these courier sites, it’s still up to each individual/business to make the effort. But hopefully this information will mean your time and money should be spent more effectively.
