If you’re doing your research into starting out as a courier, you will want to hear the opinions of people already in the courier industry, as well as those of people in your situation.
You have to use your common sense, obviously, as not everything you read will actually be sensible or even true. You’ll hear a lot of established couriers telling you they’re starving to death, in a rather lame attempt to stop new people coming in to compete them.
Generally, as with most things on the internet, the more of a rant a post seems to be, the less notice you should take of it.
