The best practices of successful CitizenShipper drivers




  • Jan Lundberg

    Hhmmm? Should i b a driver? I can't decide whether this is actually worth it or not. Is it a money maker? It would cost me $300 in gasoline to drive from New York City to Miami. If my bid is $400 to $450 that's not much of a profit is it? Especially for a journey that may take close to a week. What am I missing?

    Jan, I would bid $1.70 per mile, plus expenses for an animal or other related excess. The mileage is a write off for your business. 1,278 miles is a long drive, you will also have to figure in food & lodging. (provided where you stay accept animals). Then you have a long drive back home, unless you plan to stay in Miami. Then lower price is OK. At least it gets you there. Good luck, safe travels.

    While our marketplace can be very competitive, all drivers still set their own price--meaning you can choose how much money you would like to make:)

    Many drivers also make use of our Stack Tool allowing them to complete multiple shipments along the same route, which lets them charge a little less since they are already head in the same direction. You can learn more about our stack tool here:
