I meet guys local to me who work for UPS who dont seem to be faized at all by "big" numbers over 120 a day even up to 180. When you quiz them further though they admit they are counting the daily number of cons not drops and that also their route is something like "Wallington High Street" ie a mile and a half of shops and offices on one straight road and all their goods are one kilo or less jiffy bags to totally business locations and electronic POD capture.

Me I get stressed out at anything over five and thats if I have been there before.

How many drops a day does a postie or a milkman do?


i do over 300 drops a night as a milkie currently :shock:

I cant understand how they think they are different than us, carrying goods 1 mile or 100 miles exactly the same.

the company happy with business use policy...they don't care if the cars not insured, not their problem they cover goods on their git that's all they are worried about.

i cant afford hire and reward on these rates so i don't need it :yikes:

seem to be burying their heads in the sand


as for leaving keys in ignition and engine running, doors unlocked i couldnt believe what i was reading

Well having been a police officer in my time I tried to register and explain to them that (simple terms may be needed) that if they need insurance to cover the correct useage, but they haven't authorised my account.

I can't believe the stupidy of some of those on there, they seem to deny the fact that its not for reward :roll:

Then you'd know that the actual offence of 'having no insurance' is actually defined as using a vehicle on the road which is uninsured against third party risks. Therefore, as long as they have a policy, they are covered legally. BUT ... if they have a prang and it is found out that they are using their vehicle for the carriage of goods for hire and reward, the insurance company is quite entitled not to pay up!
Therefore, they are legal - but the risks are all entirely upon their own heads!

Whilst I agree whole heartily that they should have the correct insurance should the contractors be part liable for letting them do it in the knowledge that most are incorrectly insured???????

I assume that they have a copy of everyone's insurances.

Mind you having a read through that site most of them don't get the full drift of self-employment let alone anything complex like the correct insurance.

It's the fact that almost none of them seem to understand they're being taken for absolute MUGS that irritates me. Hermes/Parcelnet probably can't believe their luck!
