De­liv­ery vans scup­pered

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

IT is bad enough that the traf­fic is so bad in Manch­ester it takes us longer to do our de­liv­er­ies

But now the coun­cil seem to want us also to waste our time by mak­ing us ap­peal bus gate tick­ets when we have to en­ter to the bus gate to make the de­liv­ery or a col­lec­tion. We have had six tick­ets in the past year, all for col­lect­ing from the same Manch­ester cus­tomer.

Most of these have been can­celled but for some rea­son one was not.

We wrote ask­ing for an ex­pla­na­tion but never re­ceived a re­ply.

One of my ve­hi­cles was claimed be­cause of one of the tick­ets which we thought was still un­der the ap­peal process ap­pears not to be and we had to pay £400 to have the ve­hi­cle re­leased.

When you are try­ing to make an hon­est liv­ing it’s heart­break­ing. I don’t know whether to or­gan­ise a protest drive through Manch­ester with other trans­port com­pa­nies to high­light the de­lays, road clo­sures and stupid bus-gates or throw in the towel.
