    Boston Courier Companies

    I was just wondering if anyone on here knew some contact information on some courier services in Boston. I'm a recent engineering graduate, but I'm thinking about being a bike messenger to pay the bills while I look for the oh-so-dreaded "real" job. any info would be appreciated. thanks.

    Go check out Marathon messengers. I can't remember the exact address but it's right across the street from the cemetary with mother goose and Sam Adams on Tremont st. Right before Park st. Stuart runs a straight forward business. The vast majority of companies down there just don't pay all that good and the ones that do I doubt you will get in with right away. Just remember to do your taxes at the end of the year.

    i work for USA couriers in boston, 15 court square, suite 400

    it was the first place i called, and they told me to come up and fill out an application, that was on a friday, i was working the following monday.

    i heard city express is good for starting couriers though, look up delivery services in the phone book, theres like 2 pages of courier businesses, thats how i found a job.

    on a side note, you would be suprised at the number of good looking girl couriers riding fixies, its pretty cool.
