If you’ve got your own van, and you’re doing a few own van courier jobs to make a little money on the side, chances are that you'll have noticed that fuel prices are making a huge dent in your cash flow. What’s worse is that you're not only suffering from increased fuel prices, but you’re having to adjust to wildly variable prices. This kind of uncertainty can often make smaller own van courier jobs much less profitable.
