'Why I Like Being A Courier Driver' – Your Answers!

Posted by Gertie on 22-May-2015 18:30:26

Hello, my darlings!

I hope everyone is good and ready for another round of Q&A answers, because I certainly am! We have an excellent batch this week (when do we ever not?) and I have been dying to share them with you all, as per usual. So let's get right down to it, shall we? 

Before we begin, though, a little refresher: this week's question had to do with your favourite aspects of the courier driver profession. I wanted to know what aspects in the field of delivery driving most appealed to you, and having read the wealth of good answers I got over the past week, I feel like I have a pretty good idea. As usual, you all had a fresh take on this issue (this is what I love about my readership!) and below are just a few of my favourites.

'The best part of being a courier driver, as far as I'm concerned, is the opportunity to travel all over and see new places. Even if you limit yourself to a certain area, like most of us do, there are still likely to be a few places nearby that you're not aware of until you have to go there to deliver a parcel. I found a lot of quaint little villages around my home town this way!' - Debbie, Shropshire

'What I like best about being a courier driver is the interaction with customers. I know this is the least favourite aspect for most people who work in services, but I'm a little different. I'm a very social person, and those two minutes of banter with a nice old lady, a stay-at-home mother or even a business owner totally make working in this field worthwhile for me!' - Tom, Hampshire

'I love the freedom. I work as a self-employed courier driver, and I know this only really applies if you are your own boss, but the flexible schedule and being able to dictate your own pace and area of influence is lovely!' - Terri, Lancashire.

What did I tell you? You lot never disappoint, with your varied and interesting points of view. Makes these interactions worthwhile, really!

See you next month, for hopefully another one of these. Until then, ta-ra!
