DDR Sameday Courier

Original Poster

Hi all, been on mtvan a week or so now and just realised I hadn't said hello. How rude! Anyhoo, here goes.

I'm Dave, an owner driver trading as DDR Sameday Courier. Only been working as a courier a few months and building business up slowly. Don't worry, I'm trying to avoid any typical newbie questions as most of what I wanted to know has been answered / researched on forums etc so have most of what I wanted to know before starting. The rest will come with experience........

I'm based in Lochmaben near Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway and available for collections within a 40 mile radius within the hour so that includes Carlisle .

I drive a Transit LWB / HR and GIT insured to £15000.

Looking to make contacts through here. Oh, and thanks for the information / entertainment in the forums.

Hi Davis, my name is Ashe and also new to this forum. I want to get started, I have done a week's work with Yodel and would like to hire/buy a van. For now I have a small saloon. I read on the forums that the rates average 70p for outward journey and 50p for the return leg. Still to find out how things work here.
