Few jobs are as satisfying as being a Courier Driver. For the most part, a courier driver gets to set his/her own hours, can decide how much they want to make, and not have to work in a claustrophobic office.
Lots of people are looking into the freelance courier industry these days as a way to make extra cash on the evenings and weekend, and even as a full time job. One thing is for certain, there will always be people looking to get things shipped from point A to point B.
Here at CitizenShipper.com, we operate a shipping marketplace where freelance drivers can login and quickly browse hundreds of shipments that need delivering. There are a wide range of shipment categories including small parcels, pets, furniture, vehicles and even apartment moves. We have something for just about everyone.
If you own a small vehicle, or even a motorbike then you’re more likely to be interested in some of the smaller, handheld deliveries that are posted on our site. However, if you own a truck, flatbed, or even a semi – then some of the larger shipments may be of interest to you. Fortunately there are shipments for almost every vehicle type.
One question that is frequently asked is “How much can I make?”. This will depend on the size of the shipment, and how far it needs to travel. Typical courier rates are between $1 and $2 per mile. So, a local job could pocket you somewhere in the range of a few hundred dollars, whereas something that needs to go out of state could very well be worth thousands of dollars.
One very popular way to use this site is for the case that you are planning on making a trip somewhere anyway. Let’s say you’ve got the weekend off, and plan to drive to a nearby city to visit friends and relatives. Why not search our site and find a shipment that needs taking along? That way, you’ll have your gas paid for, and probably make a little extra on the side.
Another way this site could be used is to help pay for a road trip. If you’re thinking of taking a few days off, and seeing the country by road, you could plan your trip based on CitizenShipper deliveries. That way, you get to enjoy the open country, and not worry about how much gas is costing you!
One of the ways we help you win jobs is by allowing you to build a profile. On your profile you can upload pictures of yourself, and your vehicle. This gives potential customers confidence that your vehicle is up to the job, and by adding a picture of yourself, the client knows who to expect and feels more confidence in selecting you. We also operate a feedback system so you can build your reputation. When you make a bid, clients see feedback that has been left by your previous clients and this further provides the client with confidence.
