Of course crv guide is good

the publisher found a way to make a grand a week profit as a courier and out of the goodness of their heart decided that instead of building a multi million pound franchise system they would sell all their secrets to newbies for fifty quid.
Also amazingly, nobody else has capitalised on this amazing information and turned it into a franchise system.

I wouldn't be surprised if mcdonalds published a fast food for dummies manual soon explaining how to gain world domination in fast food supply.

World domination ... now there's a good idea that I can apply to the couriering industry.

Today ... Plymouth.

Tomorrow ... Europe

and the rest of the world by 8pm a week next Wednesday.

Also if you look hard enough for it you can find it for free on internet, I can afford to tell you this as I am laying on a beach in barbados having followed it word for word, I will quite happily forward a copy if you so require.












£60 please :D :D :D :D

When someone posted a link (was it here?) to one of the bibles I was pleasantly surprised. Ok it was not worth forty quid and was a little how shall we say optimistic on earning potential but it did answer quite well some of the basic questions that are asked here time and time and time again. Although I cannot comprehend it there are some guys whose experience of business is limited for example they have been a policeman for the last thirty years. They become a courier do some work and cant work out why no one pays them so they are asked to send in a copy invoice and they say - Whats an invoice?. So for them buying a manual is great news.

The fact is that if you have a driver's license and a good driving record, you would qualify for the job. It wouldn't hurt to be familiar with the area and have a map. Having a GPS unit that works by addresses and gives audible directions would also be a good idea. There is nothing to it if you can drive and read a map.
