Coalville Courier

Tomorrow 4 pm on channel 4 'Shipping Wars' the UK version kicks off. Nothing like the same day courier business though, more about gathering domestic loads and putting a lucrative run together.

Not real, but will probably be entertaining.

I watched the pilot show some months ago, & entertaining was an understatment. Some of the ways the van driver was doing there deliveries was unreal, not to mention the prices thay was doing for. Good for us tho, if they see how they do it off Shiply :)

Completely rubbish.

If you consider runs like Norwich to Aberdeen for about £80.00 then this is the show for you.

Totally unprofessional Drivers & Businesses.

I am just Glad is does NOT have the word courier in the title.

It's like having the title Masterchef and then having some idiot doing beans on toast.

The tattooed couple doing the boxing ring to France, didn't go freight on the train as they only paid £40. With both jobs to France, non of them mentioned tolls. I bet none of of the vans have got the proper insurances. I.e. Hire & reward and GIT!

I think theres more to this than can be seen as the editing is designed on a certain manner to create drama. So id suspect they will all have anything legal well sorted. An example is the vans have all trundled across to the continent and theres never been a mention of CMR yet no matter a pricing. If you live in spain and with the issues of paperwork and VAT you need to be on it . The lad in the luton broke down and yet straight onto the recovery company so he had everything in place already. If thats happened i cant see him not having G. I. T. Also lets face it if you did damage a statue ( gruffalo ) then first thing you would mention is your insurance and yet it went ignored. I think theres alot more to be seen with this program. It would be nice to see a fair costing. That luton didnt fix itself etc.
