It’s not one of those self employed things is it?
Pros/cons? Thanks for any help/comments people
As a PF driver myself,,i would seriously think about not going down the self employed driver route.
The only ones making any money are the contractors who own a number of routes and pay subbers to do those routes.
If you buy the route ,you are a service provider and its all stacked against you,,you have to provide service to PF and if you cant,,i will quote one driver in the depot I work in,,,his father sadly passed away..he was refused time off for his fathers funeral,,and was subsequently fined 250 quid..and the guy PF used to cover his route failed his parcels so that was also an extra cost he had to bear..plus,,PF are in court this month facing MP Frank Field and the select commit looking into the gig economy and questioning the self employed status of PFS owner drivers,,since ,,how can the driver be classed as self employed when he has to pay to get his van liveried up in PFs colours and is banned from working for any other company,..also have to provide cover 7 days a week,,think twice my friend..
