Alpha Couriers in Guildford is a one man company – Anthony Drapos aged 50 (what already?!) That’s me! I started my driving/delivering career as a despatch rider aged 17 on a motorcyclethis was for 7 years! Travelling to all parts of the UK – taking urgent, important documents to prestigious places and quite often pace makers to hospital beds as well – rain or shine!
During an unfortunate loss of my driving license (speed limit? what’s that? well I was only a nipper!)I worked as a post man for 6 months – again 2 wheel delivering – but at a more sedate speed!
Regaining my license (hooray!) a purchase of a 3 wheeled Robin Reliant(?!) was (at the time) luxury! But this did not impress my boss at the courier firm (or liked cornering) so after this I decided a (4 wheel) van was more healthy for my driving license and safer for my body!
