Just when I was starting to think I'd figured it

I had a chat today with The Courier Exchange.

The woman asked what I'm running, I said obviously, a motorcycle. She then suggested that there is no work for motorcycles and I should be running a car. She then refused my application.

Is this a normal response? Or is just the reaction from a secretary phoning a courier co. And saying 'Yes, I need it sending now, please send a van ASAP' And then this reaction is carried forward, and for the want of transporting a A4 jiffy bag.

The question is; is it really the responsibility of a girl behind a telephone with very little clue about the real world, in the position to decide if I can bid for a job or not?

I also begs the question mtvan v's CE /// £150 per year V's £450 Which one?

Sounds bizarre, I have come across many motorcycle couriers on the Courier Exchange, so i cannot see why they would refuse you! You do need insurance to join CX though, so was that mentioned at all?

It wasn't even spoken about. It didn't get that far. And you're right, it was reminded to me by a motorcycle courier. So there must be others using it.

I think I'll speak them tomorrow and hopefully speak to somebody a little wiser.

As it is, I'm fully insured for hire and reward to deliver good. Miss Carole Nash gave me some paperwork with it written on. I'm just confused about this GIT stuff. Is that something separate?

I've uploaded my insurance documents and the computer thing says it valid, so it must be good.

I you can see it on my profile, I would appreciate if you could cast your eye over it just to make sure it's correct.

Looks to me like you're confuing Public Liability with Goods In Transit Insurance. GIT will be cover for betwen 10 and 25k and although isn't really worth the paper its written on, most will want to see it before giving you any work, or will at least expect you to have it. Courier Exchange will certainly want you to show them your GIT doc. You have 2million showing as your git which is why i think thats your PL insurance. If you can afford it i'd be a menber of both Courier Exchange and mtvan. Courier Exchange has more work/more members... mtvan is growing

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion over this GIT for a motorbike. I think, to be on the safe side. I'll go and buy some tomorrow

Dont be confused, I have GIT for ten thou max, as for Courier Exchange, I spoke to a lady recently similiar to how you have described your scenario who said theres not much call for bikes on Courier Exchange but if you have a van you would be busy, I told her I dont really sub for peanuts even though I could post work, but she did offer me a years Subscription for £275+vat but it wouldnt be benificail to me, and yes the insurances was mentioned.

The problem with courier exchange & motorbikes is you will find it difficult to work it whilst riding a bike, most of the jobs that will fit on a bike will be advertised as a car or small van, when an alert comes through as you are riding down the motorway what are you going to do? The job will be gone in minutes if not seconds, the quotes offered on many of the jobs will be on the low side, van drivers can do this as their scope to carry larger items is greater. The Carol Nash insurance is fine for H&R, but I don't think they do GIT & PL

Quite right - we had loads today - germany, swiss, spain and another germany - all of which could easily go on a motorbike, but agree with what tony is saying, it would be advertised as a small van

Hope you have loads of tools? if your using the old Indian, sorry Guzzi, plus CN will only allow 4 breakdowns in a year, also if the repatriation is more than the value of your machine they will leave your machine where it is... on average it costs about £1200 to get it back. There will be loads of folk happy to do europe, but their is only one who is experienced in this field and reasonably priced...

Dissagree.. small bikes/scooters for innercity work.. big bikes/scooters for long distance, and as for cost, apart from tyres the cost of servicing a bike is cheaper if you DIY, and as for economy anything upto 70mpg with big ranges.. Preference for Bikes is down to the end user.. If he/she wants cheap and sometime today then your van man is suitable, if they want a 200 miler, delivered in a couple of hrs then the bikey is king, and especially on todays roads with all the cage idiots causing mahem on the M-ways. 4 wheels are great when its 2am when every is in bed..

Gas is right. Big bikes will do 300-400 mile in a breeze, and much faster than any 4+ wheeler. If you wanna get it there fast. There's no other choice. A Pan can cruise on the M-way at 90+ MPH and the revs are only half way in the range.

Whilst I agree bikes in my part of the world on a Friday would be an idea but with the extra cost of a bike it's limited carrying capacity it's not for me, you might get 70mpg at 56mph but according to MCN a pan European will average 45mpg and at £13K new (approx £4k more than a van) and a rear tyre every month(£120) and a pair every other month(£200), silly insurance costs, petrol costs it would seem to be more expensive to run a bike than a van,
I have thought about running a bike trying to ride a bike answer the phone and quote customers etc I will stick to the office and the van, as for traffic if your anywhere near competent then you will have invested in an interactive satnav which will hopefully guide you round any traffic problems although not totally fool proof they do help, How many motorway hold up have you seem with a line of bikes sat at the front? when they close the motorway it's closed whether 2 or 4 wheels!
Horses for coarses really! I run a small van because that's what I need! 50MPG £1.15 per litre fuel costs, takes an hour to service the van large bike takes all day and you have to do it twice as often and the bits are silly prices!! I get asked for a transit/sprinter a few times a year so I hire one when required, never get asked for a bike!!

Isn't the speed limit 70 mph for bikes as well? It's bad enough watching the idiots weave in and out squeezing between cars etc, no wonder so many of them have accidents.

So to answer some of your replys. Your saying rear tyre everymonth, not sure what tyre your on about, but mine average 12-15 thousand for a rear and more for a front, yes your right on cost for tyres, as for mpg Im getting around 48mpg @ 80mph, and insurance well £300 pa for H+R isnt bad compaired to vans at a grand+ sat nav I have a zumo, 48mpg @ 1.13 per litre fuel cost cheaper than yours, servicing a bike takes an hour if you know what your doing, and the bits are cheap if you in the trade.. Oil filter £2.75, Plugs (Iridium £12) none iridium box of 20 £13.00, 4ltr of branded FS oil £18.00), so you were saying...

As for speeding theirs a time and a place, bikes tends to bend the rules and yes their are idiots but this applys to everyone, I have seen named sprinters who have flown past me doing ridiculous speed tailgating in the fast lane.. or a van sat in the middle lane doing 60, oblivious whats around him eating a sandwich..

I dont give a toss on what peeps think if I do 90+ its not their concern, they should mind there own business and be concerned on what there doing..

90 + kmh your a slow rider.

Springer Express Couriers

2148

90+ you have to be that to by a Harley surely?!

bike parts are expensive FACT there would be uproar if your average car/van driver £100 per disc rotor and another £15.00 per set of pads per caliper, £230 will 7 set of discs and pads for a berlingo! service bits maybe comparable but you use twice as many, service intervals on a van are around 12K miles not around 5! 12k miles from a back tyre what you running Avon Speed masters? (bugger showing my age!) the average power ranger on his GSXR is getting through one in 2K!! But any way being as the icy grip of winter is just around the corner I think sitting in the van drinking tea listening to Fatty traffic in the warm unaffected by poor weather and is more beneficial to the bank balance than freezing your bollocks off hopping about when you electric socks and gloves short out!! my point is that bikes are hard work, expensive, if that suits you then who am I to say it's wrong. We use bikes within the M25 virtually every day with a medical contract that I have so they have there uses
but I certainly won't be buying one unless the powers that be totally fuck up the A303 at stone henge anymore!!! I can see the outside of Yeovil district hospital from my office window and that's the way I want to keep it!!

So you think it's ok to break the law doing 90 mph in and out like a weaver bird or shooting between a gap at 70 mph clipping mirrors as they go? Yes there are Bad van drivers but EVERY bike rider thinks its ok to squeeze through gaps when besides that being against the law it is also a very dangerous practice.

Actually 'Filtering' is not against the law. In fact its positively encouraged by the Highway patrols, as it get the the biker out of the way and reduces traffic. Hence why this year they have just made it legal for motorcycle to use the bus lanes in the Red zone. To get bikers out of there and reduce traffic.

The other thing that grates me a little, is the misunderstanding of the prime use of motorcycle in the courier industry. They are used to transport goods quickly. So when an ad has 'ASAP' on it. It mean quickly and that's what is being paid for. Not a multi drop service. Bikers don't pick 20 packages up on his way. He concentrates on just a few.

Filtering is only dangerous when drivers are concentrating on there sandwiches and have no awareness and don't leave a gap. They're all over the road. And then they weave about in the lane. To all you metal cage drivers out there. MOVE THE @~*$ OVER PLEASE... AND STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR DAMN PHONE! LOL..

The coppers leave us alone most of the time at 80-90 mph, cos most of the old bikers with experience are better road uses. They're looking for ones that seem slight foolish at those speeds.

As for undertaking... Its not against the law either, as this is taught by ROSPA and IAM, especially when the fast lane is congested, the middle lane is hogged by some sandwich eating, texting, map reading, applying makeup, tunnel vision inconsiderate driver, and the slow lane is empty.. I often spend time undertaking everyone who sits in the middle or fast lane...

There is some sense in what you saying. However speeding through the gap over the speed limit while the car are creeping along is not filtering. It is irresponsible. However making progress and being considerate to other road users while traveling though the traffic is good.

Listen please, the point I am making is it is not in anyway classed as filtering if you are doing over 30/40 mph and as the police officer sat next to me is saying, doing it at 50/60/70 mph would be classed as dangerous driving or even driving without due care and attention, so you see no matter what the airheads on here say I KNOW IM RIGHT!

I agree. 30/40 through 20/30 traffic. When there is a gap is filtering. And providing its done concideratly is fine. And making good progress. Cage drivers, please move over and let us past. But there are tos&*{s that just should not be on the road. They're irresponsible.
The advanced teaches bikers to make good progress safely. I recommend doing any driver training course in the car or bike. I've done the police course on a bike. And it's really quite good

Im glad I didnt say 0 - 130+ in 5 seconds on a public road, that would get a real reaction..
