Hi Everyone,

Just researching starting up as owner driver courier. I am looking for any starter guides that maybe on here, wondering if any body can point me in the right direction.

Firstly get you profile updated with ALL the relevant information inc what insurances you have, What vehicle you have and availability.

Then talk to people on here and locally telling them what you are looking to do.
