Now Hiring: Out of the Box (Truck) Jobs
The pandemic has brought about many changes in the world – some are heartbreaking, but others are hopeful and even profitable. One of the positive pivots is the fact that in some industries, like the trucking sector, jobs are more plentiful than ever. The influx of delivery jobs is due to the trend of shoppers wishing to have items delivered to their door. Read on to find out how delivery drivers are cashing in to help meet the current demand for the conveyance of goods from one location to the next.
Delivery Drivers Needed
In addition to 18-wheeler jobs available, there are many openings for drivers of smaller commercial trucks such as Box Trucks. Box Trucks range in size, typically between 10 and 26 feet long. Most have a rolling door in the back but some have the loading and unloading set up to take place on the side. You will find Box Trucks in a myriad of makes and models. Some are diesel and others are gasoline-fueled. They come in both standard and automatic versions.
When choosing a Box Truck, size definitely matters. You will want to have a general idea of what type of delivery you’ll be doing so you can get a truck with the right specs. Too large of a truck will waste money in fuel and will cost more while if you go with one that’s too small, you’ll be turning work down if your truck can’t handle the volume or the weight.
Prime Third-Party Delivery Options
A number of companies are currently hiring independent drivers, like Amazon. Although you can contact your own jobs with multiple companies, working directly with Amazon, or any other third party eliminates the hassle of constantly trying to acquire jobs. You will still have the freedom to set your own hours and take off when you want to because you simply don’t accept jobs during the time periods you don’t wish to work.
Amazon offers a Flex Delivery Program where drivers pick up packages at a delivery station and take them to the customers. Most drivers make between $18 and $25 an hour. It is also likely that you will make tips from customers which is icing on the cake since you are allowed to keep the entire tip.
There are other companies that contract out independent Box Truck drivers. One of the best ways to find such work is to check online under “Independent Box Truck Drivers Needed”. Companies like Fox Carriers, C5 Expedite LLC, and GoFor are examples of results you may find in your search. Most specify what size and type of Box Truck are needed for the job such as a “high roof Box Truck”, “liftgate required”, and so forth.
