MTvan at it again

You’re so cynical. 

They’ll no doubt realise at some stage (about now?) that they’ve shot themselves in both feet over this pricing thing.

We only bother with it because amongst the newbie postalandcourier dross on there we’ve come across some fantastic, reliable, suppliers; many of whom have only retained their MTVan membership because they thought they’d paid for it for life. If MTVan disappeared tomorrow, or were to continue with their policy of charging nearly as much as their competitors do for a far superior service, then I’m sure that all their members that are serious about their businesses would subscribe to the superior services available.

Where that would leave their own courier operation I don’t know.

    Shed5 – I’d really love Mike, or even t’other Alec @ COC, to come up with something better than both CX and MTVan. I’m frankly sick of MTVan’s bullshit and of telling CX what needs to be done and then seeing it badly carried out 18 months later by the muppets that do their web development.

    I’ve pointed out their failings numerous times to both CX & MTVan – if one of them doesn’t sort themselves out smartish and the other doesn’t just FOAD then I might just be tempted to do job properly. That’s if either Link4 or Shed5 don’t save me the effort of course.

    Tim said “I only ban people when they’re repeatedly rude or sarcastic about, as it’s unnecessary, and it is not nice for the staff here who work really hard. ”

    Naughty boys.
