Simon and Alan, you stated not long ago, that you don't sub work out on here because of numpties, but recently you both have been putting jobs on here, why?

It's not because of Numpties I struggle putting jobs on here for fear of people without Correct Insurance details showing. I simply won't use anyone who can't be bothered to populate their profile with basic relevant information such as what vehicle they have. If they can't be bothered to sell themselves and be professional then i can't trust them with our work. I like to put the odd job on to see if this site can work for us.

Gary On the very RARE occasion I have posted is because an emergency cropped up.

I try to use just my own drivers or a few 'select' subbies now if possible :)

I know Simon [SMH] can speak for himself, but I am sure he will not mind my saying that I know he too had a couple of 'emergencies' crop up! hence the post.

It is not just here that harbours 'numpties' their are plenty around that I could write a book about! I'm sure you could too Gary? you have been at it long enough to know what I mean

I do know what you mean, but back in jan feb of this year Simon said good luck to people who put in huge quotes there is nothing wrong with it, well that statement was hypocritical from him, because he doesn't like it when it happens to him.

I guess he meant good luck if they quote high and get the work

£3 a mile? Is that all? If you get a quote from e-couriers "premium" service you will be charged just £4 per loaded mile

Due to us being very very busy, as it turned out i sorted the job with one of my vans and a later delivery, i only put them on here as a last ditch if im struggerling moving my vans around to fit jobs in

A price is a price but at least get it somewhere close, £150 s/v 88 miles dont you think thats cuckoo land

If they had come in at £85/£100 thats fair enough

Right or wrong?

Simon. £150 is definitely cloud cuckoo land prices. Maybe my prices are too low because I'd have done it for less than £80! (If I'd have been available)
