What are delivery providers?
Delivery providers are local companies that Amazon uses to deliver packages from a central location to our customer's door.
Or just get a team of "walkers" together! Maybe just a group of friends who basically need some extra $$$ but have different schedules. Collectivize it so that everyone has an equal share (no need for a manager) and then get paid fully for the blocks delivered. (In contrast, the contractors will pay their employees $15 an hour and skim $3 off the top.) No money up front investment is required this way, except for maybe hand trucks.Read further in FAQ>Requirements , they are hiring bicker, cyclist, walker too................. still reading!
Looks like you can start in an old DHL (auction purchased van) and make money. I know its not easy but it looks like an option for within 5-8K investment
What I have read is you have to bid per hour and it clearly says that you can have one self driven vehicle, did you researched long ago and things have changed since than??Yeah. . You need 5 vans to start typically... Then you bid for routes... Usually around 2.50 to 3 bucks a stop is where the winning bids end up. The commercial insurance you need is very expensive and then you have all your employee costs. When I did all the math flex really isn't a bad gig if you get enough shifts.
I am pretty sure about that as my cousin brother just "applied" for it, he has to put per hour fees for bidding.I'm thinking it probably was one at some point but as competition ramped up so did the qualifications... I know for sure it's bid by stop here in PHX at least. Then the company pays the driver hourly.
Maybe that has changed as well. I know a guy who has a white van contract here and it was all bid per stop. Which I would prefer. Skimming a few hourly bucks would suck. Would rather find people who busted their ass and knocked out a bunch of packages fast.I am pretty sure about that as my cousin brother just "applied" for it, he has to put per hour fees for bidding.
Very true, if I get $32-35/hr than it will well worth it for a 9 hrs shift, as work is consistent and pretty much 7 days a weekMaybe that has changed as well.

He found a quote for around 9K/yr our state is is pretty good in terms of insurance.Yeah the insurance is insane. . And I doubt that high of a wage is winning contracts. Look up commercials insurance for just 1 delivery vehicle... And that's just general liability with a huge deductible so basically wouldn't even make sense to submit a claim on a totaled van. When I looked into it it was around 15k a year for a company with one vehicle and 2 employees.
