Hi I'm Lydia and a new owner driver  and I was wondering if there are any other female drivers and could they give any advice on their experience in this industry. Thanks!

Hi Lydia,

By the look of all the responses eith their all out busy driving or we are on our own. Our company started off with just myself as the only driver. You do get the typical male responses at some places, but I can give as many sarcastic comments back.

Good luck

Helen.

I am a woman, and have no problems with the work.  I am all over the uk, not to much sexism against us doing the job, always seem to find the men very nice to me.  Hope you enjoy it. Regards Rosie

Also i was only playing, In all honesty i have 2 female drivers i use and cannot fault them. I sent a bloke to Stoke on Trent once and it took him 3 hours and there wasn't any traffic jams. And he brought the goods back as he couldn't find the address.

I think he works for City Sprint now.

No that were nowt to do with them.... they were up for it, but got knocked back because of so called H+S Bulls**t which was proved to be wrong anyway they started a thread on it, as they were discriminated against because they cant lift heavy weights, which was proved to be wrong judging by the responses over it..

Nowt to do with them.. I have used em on a couple of occasions and had no problems. anyway put that wooden spoon away :)

No wonder my ears were burning!

We are always happy to do any job as long as it fits the van and is within loading limits. We don't have an issue with lifting heavy weights. We strongly believe in providing a professional and competent service and take pride in doing so. You only have to look at our feedback to be assured of this.

Thanks guys for supporting the female couriers - you know who you are! ;)
