GoShare Review:

GoShare connects people who have trucks and muscles with consumers who need help with moving or delivery. The site works with big box retailers, such as Costco, as well as other furniture retailers to provide delivery services. So, the site gets plenty of work to shell out.

And GoShare’s payment formula promises a great hourly wage — as much as $109 per hour for drivers, depending on the type of vehicle you drive. Keep in mind, however, that you pay your own expenses. And the highest pay goes to those driving gas-guzzling box trucks and cargo vans, so it’s not all profit.

“Helpers/Couriers” don’t need a truck, but do need a passenger vehicle that’s 2000 or newer. Helpers/Couriers earn between $38 and $40 per hour.

Still, this is a great hourly wage. And the site pays drivers within 4 days of completing a gig via direct deposit, so you don’t have to wait long to get paid.

A few concerns

GoShare has insurance commercial coverage that covers you while you’re on the job. However, the site says in its terms that if a customer files a claim because of damages you caused, it could nick you for all or part of the deductible.

However, that’s an improvement over the site’s previous terms, which said you always paid a deductible of up to $1,000 when you broke or damaged something. So it appears that you’d only pay if the site had a reason to think you had been negligent in handling the customer’s property. 

In addition, the site can fine drivers for being late or failing to show up. The fine for being late is $20; it’s $50 if you’re a no-show.

Recommendations:

Even with today’s high gas prices, the rates GoShare pays drivers and helpers make this a highly attractive side hustle. And since the site eliminated revised its terms to cut the provision that would have made drivers responsible for the cost of breakage, we have no hesitation in recommending this site.

You can also find lucrative moving jobs with Truxx, and HitchIt.

What their drivers say:

Drivers have given the app great reviews, however they’re all on GoShare-controlled accounts, so maintain an ounce of skepticism.
