Charlie Glover’s move into Dave, his Parcelforce truck, was quick. He was living in his grandmother’s spare bedroom when he bought the truck back in 2018.
He said: “I wanted a decent sized vehicle. I knew it would be more home than anything. At the time I was working on the road, so I was in hotels, I was in an actual work truck, so I would only be home for a day here and there.”
Charlie chose his Parcelforce truck because it was cheap.
“The second you go above a certain weight threshold, vehicles become a lot cheaper, because most people don’t have the licenses to drive them. But I do have the license, so when Royal Mail got rid of an absolute load of vans in one go, they were dirt cheap. That’s why I got what I got, because of price basically.
“It’s well maintained, it’s well serviced, it’s got half a million miles on it but it doesn’t make any difference on something that’s been serviced every six weeks.”
