The return of Jasco

Hi all I havent been to GT in months and though I would send a quick post to say Im... welll... er um still around lol. How are you all doing. I hope 2006 has been treating you well. Nething exciting been happening this year for you all.

I am still living in south wales. Now with my uncle in his house. In a little village called pentre. Nothing fancy it has a church and a spar, and a local pub called the queens. Where no glass is left empty on the bar and all inhabitions and pregedices about social groups are left by the door.

I am still running my own business Delivering stuff around the country. Seen more areas of the UK in the last six months than in the last 16 years. And to be honest it all looks prety much the same. Cardiff in my book is still one of the best cities in the UK.

  If prejudice is left at the door I say it can't be a good café.

Kudos for running your own business though. Seriously, I like it when people take matters into their own hands.



So is it just you being mister mailman or do you have employees and stuff/plan on having them?

How's competition going with other companies? Can you go under the prices of bigger companies?

I want to know damn it

No its good cos everyone gets on with each other, no matter the age, ethnisity, interests etc.

There are three of us at the moment as directors of the company. Myself, My stepfather(Dad) and Neighbour. I do the office work and they do the driving. Wish I could do the driving but I am regestered blind so it is not a good idea he he.

We plan to have people working for us in the future but it is going to take a while as there are tax issues to get aquanted with first and the business isnt big enough yet.

>How's competition going with other companies? Can you go under the prices of bigger companies?

Competition is ok It works out quite well actually cos as a small business you can specialise. The bigger companies charge a hefty fee for same day as they dont make as much in the long run as they do on the next day or Multidrop deliveries. Unfortunatly we cannot compete on a next day/mail basis as the scope for providing a service like that is huge and a lot of money is needed.

You can also compete with a man with a van as you are targeting other businesses which require the service. Whereas a man and a van would look at courier companies who are looking for subcontracters.

Comp with other companies around the same size as us is stiff cos most people have contracts and it is hard to attract new business if they already have a courier in place.

  It's a beautiful thing to see you still alive and kicking, Jasco.
Just remember that posting here again is a good thing, and staying here to post more is an even better thing.

Hi Addi

I have the net back home now so i will be sticking around a while. I havent saw a lot of Paulo myself lately but I will pass the message on.

He is still with his misses I think so sadly the Paulo dating stories have not been as abundunt as old.

Be careful, you just might start to actually believe that hogwash.

So where do you realisticly think the company will be in 5 to 10 years. Do you see tangible growth potential?

For example, would you merge with other smaller companies, is this a deffinite carreer choice or still something you're in doubt about, and also more specificly (which can be left unanswered if you want, that's ok) is the money any good?

What do you guys do for promotion, I mean, how do you get the name known, and would you consider the service to be local or regional? In other words, do you mostly do your thing within a range of a few towns and cities or are you guys known outside the confined circle?

The company will grow off the back of the existing customers and also from new customers we pick up along the way. All of our customers are growing businesses so as their demand increases we will have to increase our capacity.

For me I am in it for the short term in that I mean three to five years. I am enjoying it now it is not the main thing in my life I want to do. I dont think I will ever truly abandon it cos it is something I have bilt and I would like to see it flurish. If I am in it for five years I will be only 28 (Including the year past). Plenty of time for me to seak new experiences elsewhere.

Some of my family have images of me as a businessman managing a huge company. But that isnt me. At the end of the day it is going to be a brilliant ride but for me there will be a time where I will say thats it for me and I made that very clear when I started. However that will be years from now and at the end of the day if you put your mind to it anythings possible.

Marketing wise we have a website.

www.jascocourierservices.com

flyers and letters and business cards always help. Not to mention signs on the vans.

In terms of customers it is confined to south wales however we go all over the country with these customers so our name and rep is spreading

  Prynhawn da Brawd, Sut dych chi?
Been a long time since you invited me round for coffee and cakes, and you know that makes me cranky! What are you doing for your Penblwydd Me old china plate? The Caerdydd Crew and the Platypus people are all prepped for a night on the tiles.

sorry i didn't respond to your text the other day, i've no credit on my phone at the moment and am sleeping through most of the hours that i could top it up, I know there's a twenty four hour garage on Newport road so it's no excuse but Nehal doesn't work there anymore on nights and it's just not the same.

Anyway, goto fly there's threads to be posted on, if you see this tonight- I'll call you in the morning as i'm back home in Pentre.

Don't forget to tell 'em who named your company buddy!!

Iechyd da! Trowsephi G Escobar xx
