Comment 1 : Interesting that Ipswich Express is a subsidiary of a web design company.
Comment 2 : You say vans (plural), but all the photos are of the same van.
Comment 3 : Price of 70 per mile. If that's loaded miles, you're priced too low.
Comment 4 : Driver loading charge £5 per hour - that's under the national minimum wage.

Price is up to you. I presume you’re just starting and these prices are your first thoughts. You have to charge cost plus profit required. Just consider, for example, a 100 mile delivery will pay you £70. It will take you 4 hours (or more) to do the round trip. It will take how much fuel for 200 miles? What other costs do you need to factor in?

For my small van I would work on that delivery costing me £50 or more. £70 gives £20 profit for four hours. When you get back, will another job come up for the other half of the day? So is it £20 profit for the day? Five days, £100 profit? Worth doing?
