Hi all,

I'm after some opinions/suggestions regarding getting jobs for my LWB Boxer. I'm switching from multi dropping to same day work, and I need a good source of regular work whilst building up my own client base. Any suggestions on this would be much appreciated as I know it may take a while for my own customer base to grow large enough to support the business so regular income will be needed in the meantime. A lot of the jobs I have noticed online seem to be small van or car, there seem to be far fewer LWB jobs that I've noticed.

Many thanks,

Richard

Get into local removals. Put cards in letting agents, renters move more often. House clearances can be good, just check licensing costs for waste removal license and factor in costs of disposal for stuff like fridges. I find this work comes up regularly, in my area anyway.

Regular contract work is quite low rate, I would rather work for 3 hours for £100 and spend the rest of the day finding more work.

Thanks Jan, I'll have a look into that.

Does anyone know whether there is much large van/LWB work with anyone like Courier Expert at the moment?
