Totally flawed payment model! Proves they have no idea, especially in regard to Motorcycle prices paid! Crap rates, but their bike rates should be same as LWB van.

We have calls most days expecting a bike to be a cheap way of couriering their goods, if they only realised a bike tyre lasts 10k max and one can usually buy four van tyres for the price of one good quality bike tyre.

I've never understood why there is this usumption that bikes are cheaper. Is it because they're smaller?

Never underestimate the stupidity of people

How come Speedlink has come up so often recently? Seem to have been discussed many times.

Probably because at those prices they have exhausted their last batch of couriers and are having to source new ones.

£49 was what I just got sent too. I may take the plunge. 65p for a backload if there is one available aint bad. Better than some Courier Exchange companies want you to operate at.

I have an email from them too. It's now £49 to join + £7 per week for a small van. An Android phone is required & a trip to Farnborough or Solihull for training.

That's dearer than the best in the country - his is only £49 plus £4 a week.

So the £599 is down to £413. Plus the phone and time off work to go do training. How much training does it take? Don't they provide a Courier's Bible?

I am assuming the 'best in the country' is Courier Expert. Anyway, our premium membership is £24.99 (not £49) + £4 a week. But if paying fee's isn't up your street, then there is the option to join as a reserve for free, with no ongoing fees at all :)
