It's time I said goodbye to this site. If I wanted to be a courier in a car, then I would've bought a car, but this site has nothing more to offer than rubbish sameday retail car jobs. That to me is NOT courier work and i'm sure a lot of other member on here will agree with me. This site has been a great start for me and i've made some great contacts, but just lately this site has gone to sh*t and it's not going to be beneficial for me to renew my membership. I'm still going to be operating, but not on this site anymore. If anyone wants me to cover any work for them, then please give me a call, my number is on my profile.

Regards Darren

Hi Darren, so far today there have been more jobs listed as 'Sameday Urgent' than retail...

You seem to have picked up plenty of jobs over the last few months too...

Either way, sorry that you feel it's not working for you. Please check back as we're working on much better filtering of the work on the site which we are confident will address the concerns of some site members about different job types.

Always sad to see this sort of thing, especially for me as i havnt been working for myself for that long, what i dont understand though is why you dont class people who do this job in a car as a courier, i do urgent same day deliveries in my estate car as its comfier than a van and i can get just as much in it.

I have used my car for 2 years and although I do very little sameday work these days, a car has it's limitations and can be one big pain in the ass, you can fit bugger all in them, I have lost a ton of work because of this.

I agree you cant get a pallet in the estate car but ideal for document delivery and small parcels, running a mondeo estate and it will swallow a 6ft x 3ft wardrobe lol.

I will still look in now and then, but as for work on here, its just not for me anymore. Just seems to be more car work that's less than 10 miles, that's not what i'm looking for from an exchange site

I have commented on this sites work before, loads of bids by lots of different people, but remains open to offers. When is it ever allocated. Now we have masses of this silly car work. This was a COURIER sit that once worked, now I look in now and again for a laugh. I just wish admin could stop sending me this rubbish work, very distracting when driving only to find out its junk work yet agian.

A lot of other members are saying exactly the same thing, but nothing getting done about it. I've already noticed a lot of members have left and good members aswell

Well my subs have ran out now, so until this site is sorted I won't be renewing my membership. Most people know who I is, so if you need me give me a call. I just hope this site gets sorted soon

We have more Urgent jobs on the site than we had this time last year (and last year more than the previous).

If you haven't noticed we have made our job type filters site-wide, so pick what you're interested in and you'll only ever be alerted to and see that kind of work.

Change your settings here.

In fact, we have more members now than ever before and no more leaving than there ever was due to normal industry 'churn'. Best of luck if you decide it's not for you.
