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 a decent amount 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.

Requirements:

We normally list a site’s worker requirements in our “Basics” box. But, in this case, there are different requirements for drivers vs. helpers and the listing was too extensive for our format, so we’re listing them here:

Requirements: Drivers

  • Over the age of 18 and have a valid state-issued ID
  • Be authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Have a car, truck, cargo van or box truck that’s 2000 or newer
  • An iPhone or Android capable of running the latest GoShare app
  • A driver’s license and clean driving and criminal record
  • Auto and health insurance
  • Ability to lift and carry objects of up to 75 pounds
  • Must pay for and pass a background check. Cost $45 ($150 if in N.Y.). This fee is non refundable. No felonies or violent misdemeanors in the past 7 years

Requirements: Helpers/Couriers

  • Over the age of 18 and have a valid state-issued ID
  • Be authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Have a vehicle that’s 2000 or newer
  • Pass a background check (which you pay for as noted above). No felonies or violent misdemeanors in the past 7 years
  • Ability to lift and carry items weighing up to 50 pounds
  • Have an iPhone or Android capable of running the current GoShare app
  • Must have a checking account to receive direct deposits

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 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.

That said, GoShare may not have sufficient work in your neighborhood. Other good driving and delivery apps to try when that’s the case include: Amazon Flex for package deliveries.

What their drivers say (from Indeed):

Been working for a year now using my cargo van. Made around $2500-$3500 a month as the top mover for 9 months straight. Then reality hit. GoShare lost many of its partners in New York and reduced prices for tire deliveries from $57 minimum to around $18. Last 2 months I barely worked. Almost no work at all.

It pays decent when there is work around your area, but often you have to drive for an hour to get to pickup. Good work disappears quick before you can read thru wo. Don’t know how that’s even possible. Might be able to do 1 job a week if lucky.

Other reviews

Drivers have given the app great testimonials on the GoShare site. However it’s always smart to maintain some skepticism with endorsements on company-controlled accounts.
