Delivery of personal items to Poole Dorset

Posted by Howard Trott on Monday, August 13, 2018, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Had a call on Saturday from a gentleman who needed personal items picked up from Warrington and delivered same day to Poole in Dorset. The items being delivered included passports a couple of items of jewellery and some clothing.



Arranged everything over the phone then got my gear together. As I pointed out in a previous post it's good to have a checklist of what you have to take with you. Nothing worse than forgetting something and not noticing until you are miles into the job. Saves time and...

Document delivery from Manchester to London

Posted by Howard Trott on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Had a call from a company that needed urgent documents delivering from their office in Manchester to a branch in London. Had a time window of just over four hours so couldn't hang around. It was going to be another hot day so made sure I had a bottle of water with me. If you are thinking of becoming a motorcycle courier a good idea is to have a job checklist, just to remind yourself of what you need to carry.

  

I set off and could feel the sun on my back, the bike was running well and was look...

Staying safe as a motorcycle courier

Posted by Howard Trott on Friday, May 4, 2018, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Significant numbers of motorcyclists, including those working as a courier driver / rider, continue to suffer serious accident-related injuries. Some of those injuries would have been less severe had appropriate protective gear been worn.



The Past

Today, only riders above the age of about 60 will be able to remember the time before crash helmets were legally required. Their introduction helped achieve a massive reduction in the number of serious head injuries arising as a result of motorcycle a...

Motorcycle Couriers

Posted by Howard Trott on Thursday, July 13, 2017, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
At the end of the First World War in 1918, many British Army motorcycle despatch riders of the Royal Corps of Signals were demobilised and found employment difficult to come by. As a result, they purchased military surplus motorcycles, and began couriering in central London. Following WWII increasing urban congestion in London saw riders on small motorcycles making scheduled runs with artwork or copy between printers to and from advertising agencies or newspapers.

Good customer service is important for a courier company

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
With any courier company, giving a high standard of customer service is a must. In the long run you get more business, returning customers, and it's a vital part of being a professional courier company. If you offer bad customer service you won't be in business for very long.

 

Respond as quickly as possible

One of the biggest factors in good customer service is speed, especially when a customer is requesting a consignment to be delivered that is time sensitive. Sorting the requirements out on ...

Cost of hiring a motorcycle courier

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, November 27, 2016, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Like any other service different motorcycle couriers charge different rates and provide varying standards of service. Hiring a cheap motorcycle courier isn't always the best option. There are motorcycle couriers that charge as little as 80p a loaded mile, which means the mileage done while carrying your consignment. With the overheads involved such as fuel, insurance and motorcycle maintenance, to make a profit they must be cutting corners. Such as operating without insurance, having a poorly...

Choosing a motorcycle for work as a motorcycle courier

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, November 20, 2016, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
I often get asked which motorcycle is best for motorcycle courier work, my honest answer is there isn't one.
It all depends on what you're comfortable riding, what areas you're going to cover and what you will be transporting.
If you're just going to cover your local area a small motorcycle or scooter will do. If you'll be covering a large area such as the UK, a larger motorcycle will be needed. If you're going to transport bulky items or do multiple drop offs a large capacity motorcycle with p...

Same day motorcycle courier delivery of antique automation

Posted by Howard Trott on Wednesday, July 6, 2016, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Had a call from a gentleman who needed an antique automation picking up from a dealer in Manchester and delivering to Northampton. Was informed the automation was an early 1900's Puss In Boots Cat and rather valuable. It was already well packed so all I had to do was transport it safely and quickly. The gentleman was in a hurry to get it but couldn't pick it up himself.



I got on my green automation and headed for Manchester. The traffic was congested but managed to weave my way through it. I d...

A garage in London wanted custom car parts picking up from Manchester and taking to their workshop in London.

The car needed to be finished by the following morning so time was running out. He had ordered the correct parts and needed them delivered in a matter of hours. I enjoy a challenge so assured him ...

Looked out of my window and it was pouring with rain.

Wearing motorcycle leathers in pouring rain is not advisable, the leather retains the water which makes the leather...

Fast same day courier delivery of medical samples

Working as a motorcycle courier you get people contacting you with some odd transportation requests. I had a woman call me who wanted a hamster transported, couldn’t get a motorcycle helmet small enough for him so that was a no. A gentleman wanted fish transported, I had to explain to him that I ride a motorcycle so there would be nowhere to put them. I could of worn a goldfish bowl instead of a helmet but the fish would of blocked my view.

Don't provide just a courier service

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, March 1, 2016, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
The courier industry is very competitive with some people willing to transport consignments for next to nothing. The days of making a lot of money are gone. Most van couriers I come across are just scratching a living. Most are on the road for 12 plus hours a day and make 50p for every parcel delivered. With running costs such as petrol, wear and tear on the vehicle, insurances and other expenses it's a hard way to make a living. Motorcycle couriers are in exactly the same boat. I know motorc...

The nice weather is nearly upon us and as usual we are starting to receive phone calls and emails from people wanting to work as motorcycle couriers. We have stated on the website that we are not looking for any staff due to the fact that we undertake all the work ourselves. Motorcycle courier work is not seasonal, we have delivered consignments with thick ice and snow covering the roads which makes riding interesting to say the least especially when your in the countryside scaling a steep hi...

Another Strange Delivery Destination

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, December 1, 2013, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Working as a motorcycle courier you meet people from all walks of life and deliver consignments to some strange places and people. Solicitors must have it in for me as the strangest places and people I've delivered to have all been solicitors clients. This one was no exception. Had to deliver documentation to a lady living out in the sticks. It was pouring with rain and had been for a couple of days. The roads were fine until I hit the green belt, as every biker knows some country roads are a...

Test Riding Motorcycles

Posted by Howard Trott on Saturday, November 16, 2013, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
To enjoy working as a motorcycle courier you must love riding motorcycles. If you look on it as just earning a living you'll end up loathing the job. I love everything motorcycle and have been riding motorcycles a long time, and still get a buzz every time I get on one. I'm luckier than most. I have a good friend that owns a motorcycle showroom. I test ride motorcycles for him when I have time and have ridden most makes and models.

Strange Delivery Destination

Posted by Howard Trott on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Working as a motorcycle courier you deliver consignments to some strange places. Sometimes I deliver legal papers for Solicitors to their clients. One such place I delivered to was like something out of a horror film. The place was out in the sticks and was hard to find. Had to ride down a very narrow country lane which was full of pot holes and unkept hedges on either side. It seemed to go on for miles. It was the middle of winter, the sky was grey, and all I could hear was the noise of my m...

Satellite Navigation is essential for a motorcycle courier. Delivering consignments across the UK needs to be done as quickly as possible. Most of the consignments delivered are time critical and have to be delivered before a certain time. The Tom Tom Rider 2 Sat Nav is very easy to use. The touch screen is bright and the tabs are large.

 It has many settings including the fastest or quickest route options, which is handy if a speedy delivery is essential. The charger is wired to the battery a...

Working As A Motorcycle Courier

Posted by Howard Trott on Friday, October 4, 2013, In : Motorcycle Couriers 
Anyone can work as a motorcycle courier. All you need is a motorcycle, telephone, and insurance. The same applies to van couriers. I know quite a few lads that have lost their jobs, so they bought a van got some insurance and had a go. Most of them don't last long.

 I came across a lad parked up at the services on the M6. He looked p***** off and was kicking his bike. As most bikers would do I pulled over to see if I could help. His bike had seen better days and was leaking oil everywhere. He ...
