    I pay who ever covers my work 100% they're doing my work and I expect the same standards that I'm proud to give.

    Not being funny but first of all can he do the job as you may come home to a smaller round if the quality of the work is poor. Not to mention he will need to be insured to drive the van and have his own public liability insurance.
    He might need the cash but you need to think it through if its a good idea or not. Simples... :Image16:

    True smurf .

    To put him as a named driver will cost an extra £12 lol
    I was gonna train him up how to use the gear and how to clean but I know what your saying im very particular when it comes to cleaning
    I dont like to cut corners when cleaning if anything I spend too long cleaning to make sure everything is just right .

    Just thought id try and help me dad out with a bit of extra cash .
