How are the working hours at SBL Couriers?

  • Depends on area and travel time. You're paid mile for the entire route and "Return to Depot" (RTD) mileage as well. So if you travel Norwich to Sudbury, doing 150 miles round trip, you will be paid for that mileage. SBL can not, not pay that mileage as it's Breach of Contract with Amazon and it is ALWAYS paid.

    I live 27 miles from the depot, so I leave with 15-20 extra to spare (traffic), I might leave at 9:30 in the morning, collect at 10:45, and be delivering around 12:30 in Bury St Edmunds or Stowmarket. Customers not being in can slow you down, but for most part you'll be finished no later than 19:00, and able to get home before 21:00. I find the issue is less with SBL and more about the work load/stop count Amazon push out and the wave times Amazon setup.


    If you put in the days/hours, avoid getting concessions and are not too slow, you can earn really good money. I don't have a £12k sports car for nothing, and my last job certainly wouldn't have paid for that car.

  • Bad you are given 10 hrs to complete the route but after 3 hrs they normally Send people to take bags off you and you will earn £65 for the day after the van rental which is £30 a day and the fuel that is normally 20 -30 a day your left with £5-15 for the whole day.

  • 50 to 60 hours a week

  • Very flexible working hours, i can choose when and how much to work. it fits my personal life.

  • Long hours

  • 10 hour days with routes 1.5 hours away from depot and once you dropped the last parcel... you have to pay out of your own pocket to get back they don’t pay that mileage
