The only way to find out is start phoning round on the 24/12/2013 about 8pm and that will give you the answer, I have worked on New years eve and its by far the best time of year to drive, I will work if required but rarely do, I have done lots of work for Sameday Uk in the good old days.

Can't work Christmas day going out for some grub

Basic rate is understandable if they are a regular customer, but a one off wanting a b#tt pl#g taking from Wigan to Plymouth would be considerably more than normal rate.

Why would anyone want a b#tt pl#g taking from Wigan to Plymouth Gary?

Lots of crap on peoples websites including using Logos of companies illegally etc etc

Have a great Christmas and new Year, and thanks for your help this year.

We are 24/7 and my phone will be switched on, majority of our customers are all closing on xmas eve until 2nd jan so hoping for at least a week off. No big hardship if we dont as work is work, weve still got drivers willing to work over the xmas period as its just another day to some of them.

Myself and My family's thoughts are with you Gary.

Thank you guys... It has been a devasting few years for me, but more so for the last quarter of 2013, work has kept me sane and occupied with few understanding supportive clients, without them and a few friends who knows where I'd be now.. Just trying to come to terms with recent events is hard... Looking towards the future is harder.

For those that dont know, I lost my Dad to Cancer tail end of September, But what has really hit me and hard is losing my long time partner in crime the love of my life and recently wedded wife also to Cancer late November at the young age of 45..

I am trying to focus on certain things to keep my mind occupied as its January and we all know that these next few months can be quiet, we've raised nearly a grand for two charities through our wedding and wake/social media, but plan more like sponsored face shave, as I have a full length Bikers Goatee and will only remove it for charity..

Gary All though we may have never met my thoughts are with you, I have my self lost my father to the awful condition that is cancer my father went from the strongest man I knew (Regimental sergeant major ) to a small child in 2 years . younger brother at this moment is battling testicular cancer has lost 1 ball and the likelihoods that he will loose the other,

Time they say is a great healer, it, s only the people we miss

Again my thoughts are with you Let me know your charity page I would like to make a small donation Regards Terry
