Review:

The concept is relatively simple. If you have a truck, van or trailer and want to use it to help people in your community move, you can sign up with Truxx to find gigs. In exchange, Truxx will charge 30% of the moving fee.

The service charges clients $35 per half hour if your driver is loading your stuff; $25 per half hour if you load for the driver. Given Truxx’ 30% fee, that means drivers make between $35 and 49 per hour. If the customer asks for a second helper, that person is billed out at a $30 hourly rate. Thus they take home $21, after the site’s 30% fee.

All of these compensation figures are before tips, which go exclusively to the driver/helper.

The caveat? Users say the app is buggy and tends to freeze up during registration. If you register, make sure you keep [email protected] in your email address list. You may need it. 

Recommendations:

Moving work is sparse in the winter and fall. The time to sign up and use a moving company app is spring. Other good moving apps to sign up for: GoShare, BuddyTruk, Citizen Shipper and uShip.

When fall rolls around, your best bet is to sign up for Amazon Flex, which pays less — about $25 an hour for drivers with a truck or van — but has plenty of demand through the winter holidays.

What their drivers say:

Not really user friendly when trying to register. Froze up a few times and had to restart my phone. I did manage to finish the process. Seems like a great idea. Hope the update fixes the issue with the app. -Galaxy S7-

Have been registered as a driver for over two months. I stay logged in and have not had a single job yet. Tried to email support and haven’t heard anything as of yet

I drove for these people. Completed a gig that they sent me and when I asked for payment they tried to blame me for the customer not paying them.
