Here is an example of what I got paid and what I made. Attached is a copy of their addendum sent to me on 9-27-2010 keep in mind then sent a revised on with even lower rates in 2011. In order to make any money you have to combine deliveries. This means you cannot do just basics, you need to do threhold 2's which mean two men even though 80% of the deliveries are basic. So reality their getting a two man service and only paying for one man which is robbery. Non stop is ###.
Normally I would do these deliveries but at that time I could not work for 7 months as I was rear ended by a fully loaded 26 foot rental truck and broke 3 ribs, my foot, and femur.
1- basic 30.00
2- threshold 1's 45.00 don't kid yourself threshold ones include huge hourglass bathtubs you move one by yourself
1- threshold 2 63.00 +mileage = 141.75
1- threshold 2 63.00 plus mileage =125.00
1- threshold 2 63.00 plus mileage = 95.50
fuel 200.00 as you just drove a total of 376 miles round trip in a 15 foot Ford cube truck with a lift gate
labor 2 men at 9.00 an hour for 12 hours = 216.00
Profit 84.25 but not really.
1 hour of two men at warehouse for unloading the shipments on dock, inspecting 18.00
Matching the taxes for your employees (the state wants their money) around 30.00
My time for faxing all this paper work, dealing with the ten emails and six phones call to why these deliveries did not get out fast enough. Calling all 6 customers to arrange delivery. Organizing and mapping the deliveries to get the most out of one trip. 2 hours worth of work. And customers love to call your cell phone at 10pm.
Ink, paper for printing of two copies of the the 6 delivery forms. NSD likes their color delivery forms.
I've made a whopping 34.00!
NOPE NOT REALLY AS NYS STATE WANTS 15% OF THAT PROFIT.
28.90 PROFIT AND I DIDNT EVEN DEDUCT MY TIME OF 3-4 HOURS WORTH OF WORK.
