If you are looking to start a courier business there are a number of things that you will want to consider as a part of your planning and set up phase.

Business Structure – When you first set up a business it is important to think about how you are going to structure this. Will you work as sole trader or are you looking to set up a limited company. You can find out the difference in these structures by looking on the government website.

Safety & Security – When working with vehicles you will need to ensure that you follow all necessary safety guidelines. Adding Van Ply Racking to the inside of your vehicle will allow you to store smaller parcels safely whilst still leaving you enough floor space for those larger items.  You will also want to look at ways in which you can make sure your vehicle and its contents are secure at all times.

Marketing – Having a business idea set up is wonderful but if you don’t reach anyone to share your offering you will have a very quiet business. You need to think about what marketing you want to undertake and whether you need to have a website and social media presence.
