Elite, I think if you check back with BBIC's Genesis they will advise good business practice is to respond smartly to emails. I sent you one four and a half hours ago and you still haven't.

Instead of asking for drivers, why not just post the work on this site so o/d's can contact you in reply to your work that you post

Incorporated in June 2014, they are reported as having the ambition -

"Martin and Tim hope by the end of year three they will be competing with UPS and TNT."

I guess that means they'll be wanting to offer 50pplm for a small van.

If anybody goes and does a job for 47 pence the deserve to go bust that price is at least 15 years out of date has for the back load price £100 is a fair price if people want it doing cheaper ignore them.

That's only 40p, only tolerable as a backload.

But there's a job on MTVan right now, 108 miles, small van, Same day urgent, SA43 2JP to NP4 0TP, a car bumper for delivery on Monday says.. "Pays around £30".

I could understand the low rates if it was clearly stated as a backload but it's becoming the norm lately for sameday urgent. Makes me wonder if half the jobs posted ever get completed

I quoted a job on here week before last never heard anything (it was reposted last week). Quoted on another job on Friday didn't hear anything there either

Do you ever wonder at the different standards? If they gave you a job, they'd be giving lousy feedback if you didn't ring them to say you had picked up. Then another call with ETA. Then another call an hour later to confirm you were still en route and on time. Then another call with POD.

But call or text you to say thanks for your quote, but no thanks? - forget it, that would be far too courteous!

Milton Keynes to Manchester - £50 Edinburgh to Milton Keynes - £150

Both jobs I have done either for, or on behalf of a member from here. Last time I checked I was still trading!

Precisely. They are the ones who instantly identify themselves as discourteous. Lol.
