Re: Definitive list of Freight/Courier Exchanges

Post by bramble43 »

You know why it's been done. If a certain person owns a trademark they can either not have it used or have it used,,their choice and it's their choice how far up their backside they want to jam their head up their own backside when talking to people.
Their choice, I'm sure they are not in the slightest bit concerned and I have a more than strong suspicion that your curtain twitching ways have more than contributed to this situation.
You need to get out on the road a bit more, may I suggest you join a good exchange to find yourself some work and not just spend your time creating it for codforum, my fuse does not burn forever :wink:

I have been through the list now and visited every web site in great detail
What I did not understand or could not see contacted the owners of the site and everything like
And I can now tell you its all Micky mouse
yer thats right micky mouse domestic XXXX off ebay
all of those sites!
someone wants a 5KG wishy wishy washy very small box delivering that could of been sent in the post
but of cource this is a wind up!
time wasters off ebay with nowt better to do then post small loads on these XXXXX little sites that they are just biding for the item on ebay or not even then
Who cant even be bothered to list the shipment propoly with size and weights
Coz when you ask them a question they never respond coz they have moved on to the next trip trip triper and forgoten all about what they where listing on the exchange in the first place
from my experence I would say 90% of them on there are time wasters like!
But its all the exchanges listed above that are the same
The same exchanges you have TO PAY A FEE TO JOIN that you could go onto uship shiply anyvan and bid for free
Yes well done Mike
Mike George wrote: If you've got the attitude that you can try a site for a month to "see if it's any good" you are wasting your time and your money. Choose an exchange site and join it, log into it several times a day, use all the features, set up all the options, network with other members, and make it work for you.
yer lets take 350 quid of that stupid XXXXXXX so he can bid on a few XXXXX jobs a day when he could of gone to shiply and bid on 1,000s for free
I learn all the above doing my own research and non of it is advice off of public forums
So why am I wasting anymore time hear :?:

What, When you could be wasting your time somewhere else learning how to use a spell checker?

Your biggest problem is your rubbish attitude.
You spend your life going around forums, trying different work and getting your knickers in a twist because despite asking the same old questions again and again you still don't get the answer that suits you, life isn't as simple as that, courier work certainly isn't that simple.

There is no quick fix easy money way to make a living, get over it and get off your backside and start working properly not sitting on the internet whining that someone wants £100 to help you connect with a network of proper couriers when you could just so easily be moving someone's stained old mattress via shiply for 20p per mile less the fees you'll pay on EVERY single job

You're now thinking what a........ I am. You may be right but your attitude still stinks, always has and probably always will. This is why you have so much trouble on forums, but of course it's not you is it.... its's everyone else :wave:
