Long-haul moving jobs for people with trucks can be highly lucrative. But you determine just how much so. The sites that connect you with long-haul moving jobs let you set your own rates and negotiate directly with clients. You also collect your payment directly from your customers.
Here are the two best options for truckers looking for long-haul moving jobs.
Citizen Shipper helps long-haul truckers to fill empty spaces in their vehicles and make additional on-the-way deliveries. You negotiate directly with people looking to ship things, determining whether you’ve got the interest, room, and whether they’re willing to pay reasonable freight.
Citizen Shipper also has a handy tool to help you find other on-the-way deliveries, once you’ve accepted a gig. The site doesn’t charge commissions but does charge a $25 monthly listing fee. While the appeal of commission-based compensation is that you pay nothing until you get work, fees — particularly a low fee like this one — often cost less for successful freelancers.
