Hello to all,

My name is Werner Pretorius and I am the owner of WJP Couriers. I started this business 5 months ago and what a up hill it is. I own 4 vans and are based in St Albans. How expensive is insurance?? This is probably one of the hardest businesses to start.

Any advise would be appriciated very much. Help me get through the beginning please.

Speak soon!

Thanks for the welcome.

Hello werner, You couldn't have picked a worse time to join this industry, It's like taking on the second in command job on that cruise ship last week.

Just keep going and contacting as many courier companies as you can and introduce yourself.

Liking that comment. Lol

Thanks for the feedback. I know, it is quite bad at the moment.

I did have a few jobs in the last few weeks, but not enough.

Stay in touch.
