Found 5th May 2009
Been out of work for a few months now and have thought about doing this. Has anybody got any tips on getting started.

Where to get work ?
Delivering Repaired electricals ?
Which van is best to get ?
Better to rent/ buy outright ?
Insurance ?
What kind of money is in it.

Cheers for any help.

I'm also thinking about it. There are various franchises you can get, or you can go it alone. Any tranny will do, i;d probably buy an older one outright, rather than finance/rent

Where can you get franchises from ?
How much do they cost ?

Is that elivering door to door mate ? and what hours and money are involved.

fastwaycouriers.co.uk/ is the one i was looking at. You are given a set area to deliver parcels, and then, when it is successful, you can split it into sections and sell it if you so wish.
