Default Re: Covid 19 and riding

My mate Mike is late 50s now and took redundancy from DHL - he was a branch general manager so quite senior. He managed to wangle Class 1 training out of DHL before he left and now works when he feels like it through an agency that now know they can rely on him picking up short notice jobs in a variety of truck sizes. He loves it. Right now he can pick up as much work as he likes on food delivery runs.

The only problem with part time casual HGV work is you are invariably "guesting" in someone else's cab whilst they take time off for whatever reason. It's not so much of a problem if it's only one shift but if you need to spend several days away living there it's not so easy. To get back on topic around Colvid-19 you're effectively in their home so as you can imagine at the moment I'm staying away!
