How to Make Money as a Driver

Do you wish there was a way to make some quick cash behind the wheel? Driving for delivery companies can be a pretty lucrative side-gig or even a full-time job. 

If you’re looking to make extra money as a driver, here’s how it works:

Why Drive with Pickup and Delivery companies

Deliveries are quick, easy, and can be quite lucrative. You’ll typically earn around $25-50/hour for deliveries depending on the client’s location, where you’re delivering to (is it an office or residential address?), etc. There is no minimum hourly guarantee with these companies. Usually, they pay out weekly via direct deposit so… there’s always that next paycheck coming.

Finding Companies… AND What To Expect From Delivery Driver Job Interviews

So how do you find delivery driver jobs? Other than just searching online for “delivery driver”,  here are some ideas too.

  • Ask your current employer if they offer delivery services (if you’re currently working, that is)
  • Look for courier companies in your area; ask them.
  • Let coffee shops/restaurants know you can handle deliveries on top of their orders. Many coffee shops provide discounts when you deliver to offices or apartments in your area. You’ll be surprised how much more business you get from just knowing it’s available.
If a company offers “delivery” as an option when applying for a driver job, here’s what to expect from the interview process:

The interview process for this type of job will be different from other driver jobs.

Mostly, they’ll want to hire drivers who are familiar with driving with a valid license in the area where they provide deliveries. A company may ask you to complete a quiz of your knowledge of the city or even map reading skills before they consider hiring you.

If you get hired… welcome aboard. Now it’s time to complete all the necessary pre-opening paperwork and start getting familiar with local areas of delivery/pick up.

As long as your vehicle meets certain requirements, then you’re good to go.
