Review:

GoShare’s payment formula promises a great hourly wage — .99 cents per minute for helpers and drivers with small trucks (less than an 8-foot bed) and 1.29 per minute for drivers with a large truck. GoShare takes jut 20% off the top, which leaves you with an hourly wage ranging between $47.52 and $61.92, before any tips.

The job is clearly physically demanding but for someone with a clean background and some serious muscles, this could be a great opportunity. Why then, do we give this opportunity just three $$$? Because there are a few items in the terms that concern us. One is that drivers/helpers pay for their own background check up front and that fee is non-refundable. Second is that if you break any of the customer’s stuff, you could be liable for up to $250 in damages. Naturally, you’re going to try not to break anything, but stuff happens. It would be a serious bummer to sign on for a two hour job, for which you get about $120 and end up owing $250 because something was damaged.

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.
