Welcome and good luck

If you haven't already looked, then check out the directory to see who's close by, and say hello to em, especially if they're Courier Companies, as opposed to OD's

Ultimate Xpress is a good place to start so send them an introductory email

I think that's a bit unfair, it's not overflowing with jobs as such but it's all subject to many factors. Location, vehicle size, availability, presenting yourself in the right way to the right people, realistic competitive pricing (not necessarily lowest pricing). Some members may come direct to you rather than post via the site.

Welcome aboard Bill, best of luck!

Hello ilkley express, i myself am new starter. I done 1 job that was listed on here and he's been phoning direct ever since. If you look on the forums you get alot of advice and some really good banter as well. Many time iv'e looked there and had a good laugh to myself. There is a good bunch on here that will answer any questions you may have.
