Fleet News

Tell us your lost van driver stories

Do you have any amusing stories about your van drivers getting lost in unusual places or under bizarre circumstances?

Fleet News has teamed up with sister publication Fleet Van in a reader competition that has a Navman Wireless sat-nav unit as its prize.

The winner will be the reader who sends in the funniest or most extraordinary story.

It doesn’t have to be long – a couple of paragraphs will do – but it must make us laugh.

Here’s an example of one we heard recently: “One of my drivers went missing for hours on a short delivery job.

"When he got back I asked where he’d been and he said he missed his turn-off from the M25 so decided that rather than taking the next turning he’d go round again – a distance of around 117 miles.

"It’s funny now but I wasn’t very amused at the time!”

Entries must be in by Friday, March 28 and the winning tale will be published in the April issue of Fleet Van.

Email entries to trevor.gelken@emap.com or post them to Navman Wireless Competition, Trevor Gelken, Media House, Lynchwood, Peterborough, PE2 6EA, UK.
