Dispatch is replacing the old courier industry by providing customers with real time tracking and accurate ETAs by leveraging technology and hard working drivers who get paid a fair wage. When a customer places an order online for a shipment, the drivers closest to the pickup will get a push notification that the job is available. Then, with just a swipe of the finger the driver can simply claim the job and the customer instantly gets an ETA with real-time tracking. Businesses and consumers no longer need to call a courier and wonder where their delivery is, just Dispatch it!
Dispatch drivers need to have an Android Smartphone or iPhone, valid driver's license, a vehicle in fair condition, no criminal record, read and speak English, and be at least 23 years of age.
Dispatch requires all of our drivers to have their own personal car insurance. Dispatch provides supplemental cargo coverage when the driver has the Dispatch app on and the driver is in an active job.
Dispatch does not have a vehicle age or mileage requirement. Vehicles that are on Dispatch's network must be both mechanically sound and visually appealing. All vehicles on Dispatch's network are visually inspected before they are allowed to take any jobs.
Yes, Dispatch's network stays busy enough for drivers to stay busy throughout the day, or just do a few deliveries in the mornings, afternoons, or weekends for extra money.
