    My friend ask me to find out the payout for each job rider could get
    a good courier company in the following situations.

    One job in central london within one postcode?
    One job in central london within two postcodes?
    One job in central London to outside London?
    One job from London to outside London upto 50 miles?

    One company is offering only £3.00 per job in central London in the
    same postcode.

    Any comment would be highly appericiated.

    run, same postcode to same postcode) paid the rider £2.25. So £3.00, a
    quarter of a century later, is appalling.

    The only advice I can really give anyone is don't belive the stories of
    how much you'll earn, especially from the companies themselves, they're
    all interested in getting you working and will give you fairy tales of
    two-ups to Manchester, then a job to Liverpool to come back to Machester
    then another job to bring you back to London. While this is possible,
    you'll only experience this once in a blue moon and even less in a

    Forget it, do something else.

    This has been done to death already.

    Use Google.
