WANTED - Driver To Take Dealer And His Stock To A Book & Record Fair In Stockport This Sunday!
I have a somewhat unusual request...
I am epileptic and so cannot drive. I sell records, CDs, books, etc from stalls at record/book/collectors fairs and outdoor events up and down the land at weekends, usually with a mate of mine who is also into this- and who has a big van! ;)
Alas, though, this mate is increasingly unable to provide the transport for both of us as he is busy elsewhere some weekends and often having problems with his van...
So, I am looking for someone else to provide transport when necessary.
I want to stand at a Record & Book Fair in Stockport on this Sunday (1st July) when said mate is unavailable, and thus need someone with a van to take me and my stock there and back. I would need picking up from Litherland and dropping off at Stockport Market for 9am, and picking up and taking home at 4pm or so. (I could be somewhat flexible with those times if that helps.) It would be only a one-man-job as I would do all the loading/unloading (unless you WANTED to help with that, of course!), and you could go off and do whatever you liked between those two times. Of course, if you like records or books you could have a nice mooch around the fair too! Oh, and you could pick out some free records/CDs/books too- provided they aren't very expensive ones! ;)
I really need someone willing to do it for £30- which isn't a lot of money, I know, but I need to make a profit on the day too, of course! ;) As the fuel cost for this journey in a van will be around £15 that leaves just £15 profit for our driver which isn't, I realise, very much for a Sunday's work. However, it wouldn't really BE a full 'Sunday's work'- just around three hours of driving split between the morning and afternoon, with the seven or so hours in between free to spend as you so choose! ;)
If the driver happened to be able to fit in another 'job' in that area between dropping me off and picking me up again that would be ideal for them.
Similarly, if they happened to have relatives or friends in or near Stockport they could call and see them before returning for me.
Or, indeed, they might be into records and/or books and would like to attend the fair anyway, or else would like to have a mooch around Stockport while it was on... and so, in effect, have their fuel covered plus making a BIT of money while having a Sunday out! ;)
Similarly there will be other fairs in future where I also need a lift (it could be Leeds, Manchester, Buxton, Stoke, Doncaster, Warrington, etc) and again the driver could go off and have a nice day out in the vicinity while the fair runs, then return for me at the end and take me home, in return for fuel money plus a handy few bob on top. If you happen to have a van (Transit-sized or bigger) and are often at a loose end at weekends then why not give this a go- and get paid to have days out?
(I'm making this sound a bit like the old Army recruitment ads which read 'Join The Army And See The World!', aren't I? 'Join Den's Record/Book-Selling Endeavour And See Northern England!' ;) )
If you are able and willing to help me out this Sunday- or even if you aren't available then but might be able and willing to do so on future weekends- please drop me a line. :)
