I reserved online at Argos a small item, so i thought what the hell I'll get it "shutl'd" now going on the figures that have been put on here for a small van travelling the 2.8 miles to the store I bought it from (although I could have got it on a bike) the driver would get £6.25 the shutl quote was £15

I have no idea what Argos charge, but by the time it has filtered through to us, it is going to be a lot less.

50 - 55% of the net amount we get.

The problem is there are more layers than usual from the £15 charge to you, to what the driver gets paid. In this case Argos, Shutl, C/E then the driver. Obviously the more layers, the less the driver has at the end of it, and it could be argued that is exactly what makes contracts like this unworkable unless someone is prepared to go cheap, and that someone usually ends up being the driver.

I don't believe Argos get any thing, it certainly didnt appear like that (your are forwarded to the shutl site) in the process ordering it.

It's looks quiet simple really, one person makes next to nothing, the other person does extremely well especially when it gets up and running, But £15.00 to have something delivered from a local store is extremely steep, and who in the right mind is going to pay that?

Depends what the item is Andy, I have had far more than £15 for sofa collections from local Argos.

Yes but their storage for bulky items used to be based inside DHL Warrington and DHL Trafford Wharf Road, two of my main sources of work (till I recently told them to shove it).

The company I get most of my work from gave me one of these once. Pick up from Argos Romford (12 miles away from me) and deliver 1 mile from store.

They paid me £4.54! Obviously I never do these jobs for them anymore.

I would be really interested to know who actually does all these deliveries? It would be ok if they where giving you 50 at once from the same store but it seems to me they are adhoc one off deliveries.

Thats £4 + 54pplm for 1 mile and possibly done within 10-20 minutes if theres no waiting and customer being in + fuel (not forgetting the dead 12 miles in current traffic = 15-25 mins)= One hell of a Pisstake..

I don't understand why Argos in this case cant employ a casual driver to make these deliveries. And when they have no deliveries they could help out in the warehouse etc. Surely this would make more sense & reassures their customers when a bloke in an 'Argos' uniform turns up instead of some bloke in a car loaded to the rafters.

It's work for lifestyle couriers at best & it has no place amongst 'proper' same day couriers in my opinion.

Well said GD.

This kind of work is more delivery van than courier. There is a big difference between the two.

If I was called up and offered the job as detailed above, I would have charged my usual minimum £25.

You are also forgetting that within this contract is a late clause, when I worked it out it was approx £12 for an hour past the allowed window (90 minutes) so don't be getting any punctures on a double up (if they happen)

I think you are being a bit harsh, I personally have no problem with these little jobs being posted as it seems they are genuine and just because YOU don't like them being posted that is no reason not to post them. I'm just intrigued as to who actually does these £4.50 jobs? And go back to wat I Sid earlier that if they where giving you 50 at a time well that would be a different matter.

This also highlights how lazy people are becoming, if you have to have something delivered from 1 or 2 miles away, most people just pop out and get what you require home in 30 minutes.

I'd say it was a waste of time from CE's position putting low mileage jobs on here, as no one seems to quote for them. As said before these jobs just flood this website to the extent that I personally don't try and fathom through these jobs to find a proper courier job any more, plus I'm seeing people leaving mtvan as a result of all these "jobs". Bit sad really. .

Work is work and just because it doesn't suit the majority so what? If like me you are not interested in it then like me don't even bother looking at it, I think personally people are using that as a lame excuse for leaving as the truth is probably the lack of true courier /Sameday jobs posted on here is the main reason for people leaving. In my opinion the small cost and positives of being a member on this and other similar exchanges far outweighs any negatives as if you make one good contact or gain one piece of knowledge then in my opinion it's all been worthwhile.

As i said in a previous text the site needs marketing if it wants to move up the next level.

If you was to classify Courier Exchange as the Man utd of exchanges then mtvan is the Accrington Stanley sadly trying to punch above its weight but in reality in a different league....Members are leaving and will have an impact on the site.. A s a small van driver i cant remember receiving any more than 8 alerts on Friday... Half of which were from the usual 2 vendors. And all of them out of my range of cover.. Waste of time having alerts.. Theres just not enough vendors advertising jobs which results in less drivers. on site . Catch 22!

I agree with u on this, I see a lot members leaving and its just because of this rubbish 1-10 car jobs that I don't see anyone quoting on. Are these jobs actually worth the hassle of being posted by the vendor if they can't get them covered?

ADMIN- you should advertise more to get some real potential vendors on here. I advertise on twitter all the time and had some really good sameday urgent jobs from it. I could be worth considering.

Anyvan is a waste of time. Jobs are posted and forgotten about, so customers are difficult/impossible to contact. Quotes are thrown about willy nilly at ridiculous rates and also forgotten about, so customers never know which are genuine and which aren't. There is no real service, it's all 'ifs', 'buts' and 'maybes'.

You'll very rarely find serious business customers using the site for these reasons.

Load of eBay bollocks.

Sorry Was a tad early to post that. I suppose you meant driving a total of 800, home to home.

Bottom line though, pro rata there are opportunities to earn far more doing urgent than spending a week trawling tat sites and humping council house settees etc, in a frantic multi drop day.

I know where I'd rather be But as always, each to their own, but dont tar everyone with the same brush! :)

You paid your co-driver £120 for 19hrs work?

I say good on you if you can earn decent money from sites like that. You obviously put plenty of effort in and know how to work the system, something I can't do.

But most people can't work 19hr days with a co-driver who will accept minimum wage! It just isn't feasible.

So you got about £1100 for your 800 mile day? If you specialised in 'urgent' Euro, for similar mileage you would have earned AT LEAST another £500 for your efforts! :)

Don't think so Alan, you reckon I could get £1600 for a 400 mile euro job from merseyside? As basically that's what you are saying. Think about what you have said. Yours is pie in the sky, mine is fact. Basically liverpool to Paris £1600 don't make me laugh.

Sorry Was a tad early to post that. I suppose you meant driving a total of 800, home to home.

Bottom line though, pro rata there are opportunities to earn far more doing urgent than spending a week trawling tat sites and humping council house settees etc, in a frantic multi drop day.

I know where I'd rather be But as always, each to their own, but dont tar everyone with the same brush! :)

Sorry Alan, replied before I saw this post :-)

Am i calling you a liar Les? You honestly think i'm going to apologise to anyone that calls me a prick Les? I've got nothing to apologise for.

No I'm questioning your sanity thats all. To boast a site has 50 sameday jobs just shows how blinkered YOU are. I think it's more likely that you just get off on rattling peoples cages and winding people up.

Fact is Rob you and all the other blinkered ones see what you want to see and also many best paying jobs go straight away to the first bid ie liverpool to Glasgow l shaped sofa £298 and a sideboard Manchester to Leeds £150 far far better rates than Sameday but you guys don't see them as the thick customer accepts the first bid placed. And all this doesn't deflect from my opinion of you that you are just a bully.

Les, by paying your co driver £120 you do realise that you are breaking employment laws?

To many bleeding laws in this Country, if the guy is happy with his £120? Then what is the problem, I know the problem its some geezer in Belgium that says hang on a minute you have underpaid the guy by 7 pence an hour, Les is semi retired he dosent give a hoot and why should he, Scott when you get older you take a lot of things in life with a pinch of salt.

Well said Gary, driver was made up £120 smackers in his hand on his day off.
