Judging from the pic in your profile I think you've answered your own question....no

There are a dozen or so "exhange" sites that i know of...so there's undoubtedly more than that, and in my opinion only one that works, and one that's trying to work

I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

I joined last year and there was not a single job that was any use to me. "No problem!", I thought. "I just won't renew my subscription!".

A couple of days before my subscription was due to run out, another years membership was taken from my account.

I didn't realise that it was automatically renewed. So I contacted them (with great difficulty) to try and get my subscription cancelled and get my money back.

I got the subscription but could not get my money back.

My own fault for not realising that I was accepting a Direct Debit agreement. However, still a little underhand in my opinion.

I wondered if you had any experience with crv. They offer a 3 month membership + courier guide I wondered if u can get much work through them as a self employed owner driver.

I phoned then and they said its 3-4 pound a week after the 3 months + 33 to register your van as a courier to get work

There is a tree you've heard of called the Ugly tree, and many branches have been broken on it

There is also one you may not have come across though...its the stupid tree. It too has many branches that are broken. It still has a lot more still to be broken...but to assist you they now have labels on them. One label just has CRV written on it. I'll let you decide whether to take a step onto that branch or not
