Tips for couriers

Posted by Harold Smith on Friday, October 5, 2018 Under: Guest Motorcycle Articles
If you're thinking of specialising in the business of delivering courier loads then there are some key pieces of information that you would do well to remember. They relate to the equipment that you should carry in your vehicle, the journeys that you will have to make and the pay that you can expect upon job completion.



What Vehicle Will You Use?

The type of vehicle that you opt to drive or ride about on will probably depend upon the environment that you intend on working in. If you plan on transporting heavy courier loads along the rural roads then a van or small truck may be the best bet. However, if you are going to be navigating the inner city traffic then it's worth considering the purchase of a motorbike or bicycle. You are also advised to invest in safety gear such as a helmet and arm pads, in case of accidents.

Where Will You Work?

As a delivery driver you may have the option of working on a local or national basis. If you are going to be making lengthy trips then it is worth buying a GPS navigation system. They are generally quite affordable and can make a substantial difference to the efficiency of your business. If you plan on working on a designated patch then it will be a good idea to study a map and find out the local traffic hotspots. You definitely don't want to hit traffic jams when courier loads have to be urgently delivered.

Will You Be Handling Heavy Goods?

It is likely that you will have to deliver courier loads consisting of household furniture and electronic items. If you aren't in reasonably good shape then you may find it difficult to lift these types of goods. Anybody who is worried about this aspect of the job is advised to spend a good deal of time in the gym to maintain and improve physical fitness. You may also like to include the types of foods that provide stamina for the daily physical duties.

Who Will You Contact In Case Of Emergencies?

Anybody who regularly has to drive about the city streets will be at an increased risk of accidents. As a professional you should prepare for such eventualities by ensuring access to a phone with contacts for the local police and mechanics. It is also advisable to find a business specialising in the lease of delivery vehicles. That way you will be covered in the event of a vehicle breakdown.

Have You Thought About Payment?

If you're going to be relying on delivery work to pay the rent or buy your food then you will want to be sure of ongoing contracts. You might like to consider working for an established business for a time before going freelance. The money that you can expect to earn will depend upon the area in which you are operating and the businesses who are using your services. However, you can be fairly sure of a basic rate upwards of £8.00 per hour.
