    Transportation is a precise business.

    Rule #1: Never change the terms of the contract

    Rule #2: No Names

    Rule #3: Never open the package

    Going it along has its risks, presumably he would need to buy and maintain his own van which is costly and if it brakes down or is in the garage then your not earning. If your off sick, your not earning. No paid holidays. Just the usual drawbacks of going it alone in any business I guess.
