Why I’ve decided to start a fast, friendly and green delivery service in Newcastle upon Tyne and how you can get involved.
I’m James and for most of my adult life, I have been tirelessly climbing the corporate ladder in the world of sales and marketing, everything from sports equipment, oil, software and even scratch cards. I am passionate about giving clients the best product and service they never knew they couldn’t live without.
Ever since I can remember I have been interested in bikes, I first fell in love with the two-wheeled steed when I was given a golden, mag wheeled BMX as a Christmas present from my family. Little did I know at the time that this would come to define my life.
Once I grew up a little and responsibility came a looking, I decided that throwing my self down a verticle half pipe on a hunk of metal might not be the best idea, so I transitioned over to fast, maintainable and athletically gorgeous track-bikes, Usually seen on the velodrome from the likes of Sir Chris Hoy, my skinny legs couldn’t keep up. I was forced to doing most of my training in the harsh, urban jungle that is the city and to me, you couldn’t find a better place to be.
Around my working life as a salesman, I figured that while training I may as well earn a few Bob (since I wasn’t winning any prize money), So I decided to join all of the arrays of food delivery apps we’ve all grown to love, who would have thought that delivering pizzas to the friendly people of Newcastle would be the thing that I loved most in the world? So after a lot of soul searching I decided let’s make a go of this, let’s take the risk, it’ll be worth it if you can pull it off. My new goal wasn’t scratch cards, but to provide my amazing city with the best personal courier service, I know that they deserve.
I left the position I had held dearly for over 8 years and decided to wholeheartedly focus my efforts on my new goal. Since then I have taken on all sorts of various delivery services for clients and their communities including (although not exhaustive): Bakerys, Blood and medical samples, Flowers, Dried food products and more. I was pedalling so much that it got to the point that I had more work than I could handle on my own! I thought I need to solve this! So I have decided to tandem together a group of passionate E-Bike Cycle Couriers from different areas of Newcastle and Gateshead to give our locals the time saving, entirely personal and fast electric bike courier service to love. As I do.
And so, BUD Couriers was born!
Our mission is to help people and businesses save time, money and stress when it comes to their local logistical solution and in turn, help our city and local councils reach a sustainable solution to inner-city congestion and pollution.
We can even help with promoting your business through a bespoke advertising panel that our couriers carry on their backpacks, Bikes and Boxes. Reaching hundreds and thousands of potential customers every day. Meaning you feel like you have your own personal fleet of bike couriers.
We know you don’t really have the time to drop off the product on an evening or into your weekend, we know that spending time stressed in traffic, getting stuck down a dead-end street and waiting on lights to change is valuable time you could be spending on the business, we know you really don’t have the staff to be sending someone out to run a few errands in an area they’re not familiar with or you just don’t want to travel more than is necessary.
So we’re here to help! With BUD you don’t have to worry, we will take care of your delivery need in the most efficient and effective way we can, just leave the route planning to us. We know the city and surrounding areas like the back of our helmets.
Have your own personal delivery service.
