They pay low but quick (2 wks) their mileages are worked out on shortest possible route (if they could get away with as the crow flys they would) they will often have you sitting with jobs in order to double up and on occasions have to leave with one on board after waiting 90 minutes. If you do many one up jobs or without returns you will soon go out of business. In saying that some people in the right areas do make it work as they have quite a few large volume contracts

60 pplm for LWB, I know what I would say thanks but no thanks, that should be a backload price.

Makes me wonder how they get drivers to work this rate. No wonder I always see them advertising for couriers
