Independent Contract Drivers Needed
Why should you be an Independent Contract Driver for Dallas Courier?
Reason #1: Make over $600 per week
In fact our average driver makes $670 per week. As you gain experience, you could make more than $800 per week.
Reason #2: Lower your taxes
Tax deductions aren’t just for the oil barons and real estate investors. By the time you add up all of the deductions, instead of paying taxes on your $670 of weekly income, you’ll only have to pay taxes on $190 of your weekly income.
How is this possible? Because the IRS let’s you choose the higher value deduction between actual expenses and $0.50 per mile.
Reason #3: More money in your pocket…but…
I know what you are thinking, sure you can make a lot of money but you’ll spend it all in gas and wear and tear on your car.
I understand how you feel. A lot of our drivers felt the same way at first. But here is what they found.
If they had a typical car like a Honda Civic, it would get about 30 miles per gallon. At today’s price of gasoline around $3.00 that is about 10 cents per mile.
A Civic will last at least 200,000 miles without major expenses, so at $20,000 for the purchase price, it is also around 10 cents a mile in wear and tear.
You should change oil once every 3,000 miles at $29.95 or about one cent per mile.
Insurance is around $20 per week.
So if you are making $670 per week driving 1000 miles per week your out of pocket for gas, oil and insurance, plus wear and tear on your vehicle, your weekly expense are:
(10 cents (gas) + 10 cents (wear and tear) + 1 cent (oil)) * 1000 miles $210 plus $20 for insurance, or about $230. This will leave you with $440 per week you can put in your pocket, about $11.00 per hour.
Because of the IRS allowing $0.50 per mile deductions, your taxable income will be about $190…saving you at least $120 per week in taxes.
Reason #4: Stable job
We’ve been in business for over 28 years. We are here to stay. We have drivers that have been with us for more than 8 years.
Reason #5: More income than other couriers
Because we are a large courier, you will make more income driving for us than with other couriers.
Working for a smaller courier, even if they had the same compensation program will result in you making less money.
The reason is simple, when a company is small, there are fewer jobs so it is unlikely that you will have more than one job at a time.
When a courier company becomes larger, like us, you will often be driving for three different deliveries at once, getting paid two or three times to drive to nearby destinations.
Reason #6: More time for yourself
I know this seems illogical, that you would have more time for yourself when you are driving around…but when you drive, most of the time, your thoughts are your own. When you work in an office, you have to spend most of your time if not all of the time thinking about what your boss wants or demands.
When you drive, you get to listen to your favorite music, catch up with the latest news or turn your car into a university on wheels where you listen to inspirational and educational material on your mp3 player or CD player as you drive.
