Not the best video going, but as director, cameraman and driver I suppose I have to take responsibility. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi9clcRREh0

After driving on the pot-holed roads in Edin, the suspension breathed a sigh of releif when I took it for a little drive along that track!

Nothing burst in that van, shopping or mechanical!

Its delivering to customers like that takes 1000s of miles out of the vans, can we refuse to deliver to such people?

I would of thought somebody from HQ should take on some kind of assesment of the roads that local to your store taking account of the road conditions & what hazards an appear on a route or do they just realy on the locals to complain instead ??? :-x

An ordance survey map isnt that expensive or even look up their website. ;)

I would like to apologise to the dot com driver, who was driving past a golf club near Wigan yesterday at about 14.45, I am sorry if my golf ball woke you up when it clattered of the side of your van after a very wayward tee shot

Its not that important, the new Galashiels Extra will be delivering there again soon. The choice for that customer is use sack barrow with 60-70kg shopping, walk over their (homemade) suspension bridge over the river, then 300 yards along the path to the house. Either that or drive 6 miles; 3 round the road and 3 back along the track seen in the video.

If anyone asks, i'm working on the value "No-one tries harder for Customers".

And whilst I'm on that particular subject:

Its a ford, through a river. Not too deep on this occasion, and yes it is me driving, the off-road training in the land-rover certainly helped.

Ashby had one of their brand new vans written off last month driver still off with broken wrist cracked ribs etc he is a psycho but not all like that police not pressing charges a tesco issue. we all know what that means!
I had a couple of good minor sc**pes last year parked on hill for delivery behind parked car knew straight away handbrake not going to hold so left in gear while did delivery. Problem was whenpulled off  it's bit tricky doing reverse hill start no handbrake! best of it was mechanics had been in yard all night doing full works on them all and certified them all roadworthy!
The other occasion was with loaned van all drivers comented brakes not right i took it out one day had to stop sharp they let me go straight into back of someone wrote his car off. I got back to yard pullmans came out new pads wer put on within hour complete with discs 'cause pads had completely worn away and started to grind into old discs.

on slightly different subject does anyone know the new mobiles xda sort of thing is their tracking software or option likely to be used with them cause some of those xda's are capabable of utilising it
