I'm just starting up and have hired a Peugeot Bipper with the option of changing to a larger vehicle if needed. Was just wondering what peoples opinions were on this. I choose the Bipper for its price and fuel efficiency, but am starting to worry that I should have gone for a transit sized van.
Also is anyone having any luck getting work off uShip?
Bringing it back to the original question.
This was something myself and my business associate asked ourselves when we were starting out a few years ago.
With all the little vans we saw running around, perhaps the small van market is saturated.
However, our questions to some of the courier companies in our area revealed that going slightly bigger (ie: Transit, Transporter size) would not yield more work.
Only by going to Sprinter/Crafter size would you be looking at more job options, but then it would be multi drop or overnight trunking.
In the end we went with the small van to test the water. Now we both have our own small vans running almost daily.
Hope this helps.
