For the benefit of all, City Link Sameday are currently on a nationwide recruitment drive for sameday couriers.
We went to see them recently and for us it seems a fair enough deal.
They are willing to pay £0.65 per loaded mile for small vans. (Not sure what they pay for larger).
- No PDA (So no hidden extra there).
- No magnetic signs.
- No uniform etc etc.
Just a straight forward form to fill out and take back to your local City Link Sameday depot along with your documentation. Registration, MOT, Drivers License (Both parts), Van insurance schedule (Courier, of course), GIT schedule and Public Liability to £1M.
It may take a week to get register on their system but once you are on it you will receive your driver number and a list of all City Link Sameday Depots.
Theoretically giving you access to possible loads wherever you are.
As times are hard at the moment for all according to what I see on the forums, I hope that this might help some of you out.
