Independent drivers, whether full-time or part-time, have the freedom to work for themselves. Drivers who work part-time can go to school, have another job or use their extra time leisurely. Full-time drivers know that there are always shifts and opportunities to make money. In short, being an independent driver allows you to work flexibly, independently and make the most amount of money possible.
If you are an independent driver or considering becoming one, try delivering with FlashBox. We are always looking to grow our fleet of professional, reliable and efficient drivers.
Here’s why you should drive for FlashBox.
Flexible Working Hours
At FlashBox, we make deliveries all day. As a result, our drivers have the flexibility to choose what time they want to work. We don’t have a minimum amount of hours that needs to be worked, so you can take shifts for as long or as little as you’d like.
If you are looking for work in the mornings, consider doing our pick-ups. These deliveries run between 11 am and 2 pm. You will pick up parcels from our merchants and bring them to our sorting center in Markham.
Or, do you work a day job and prefer to earn some extra cash in the afternoon? Consider making FlashBox’s drop-offs. From 2 pm to 9 pm, you will deliver parcels across the GTA. With our route-optimized bundles, you won’t feel like you are driving all over the place.
If you are thinking to yourself, ‘I want to do both pick-ups and drop-offs,’ you can! Driving with FlashBox means you can take as many deliveries as you would like to. As long as the deliveries don’t interfere with each other, you can do multiple routes within a day.
One of the most compelling reasons to work with FlashBox is our competitive pay. As an independent driver with FlashBox, you can earn up to $25/h. Your earnings are determined by your total driving time from the moment the parcel gets picked up until the last drop-off destination. Specifically, we pay a fixed rate of $20/hour based on an initial 35km travelled. Any additional distances travelled above 35km are paid according to your vehicle size.
- Cars: $0.35 cent/km
- Mini-van: $0.40 cent/km
- Cube van: $0.50 cent/km
- On Monday, you drive for 3 hours in a sedan car and travel 100km.
- You will receive a total of $82.75.
- $60.00 for driving (3 hours x $20/hour) + $22.75 for mileage (65km x $0.35)
Earn Anytime, Anywhere
Another great perk of driving with FlashBox is our flexibility with ‘Anytime, Anywhere.’ You already know that you can drive with FlashBox as much or as little as you want, but did you know that you can drive where you want as well?
We currently service the entire GTA. We go as far west as Oakville, as far east as Oshawa, as far north as Newmarket and as far south as Lake Ontario. Because we service so many areas, you can pick where you want to deliver!
However, limiting yourself to specific cities or areas may result in fewer deliveries. Our suggestion is always to take the best route possible to ensure you earn the most money you can.
