Maria Hechanova: Instead of trying to convince your friends to help you move your stuff, there’s a new app that will connect you with people who will do it for you. I’m Maria Hechanova and I’ll show you how coming up.

Anchorman: Alright. It is the first of the month. A lot of things happen like moving and you ever wish you had a truck or needed a little help moving all those boxes. There’s a new app out there now. It’s available here in Arizona. It’s kind of similar to ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft, but instead of picking up people, drivers will pick up your stuff, your oversized stuff.

Anchorwoman: Maria Hechanova explains how the service works.

Maria: Need help moving large pieces of furniture like this chair, maybe a dining room table but can’t fit into your car. There’s an app to fix that. It’s not like renting a traditional box truck or van GoShare CEO Shaun Savage explains.

Shaun Savage: We don’t own any of the trucks or vans. So because of that it allows us to offer much lower prices.

Maria:  You’re basically paying someone to use their personal pickup truck to load, unload and drive your bulky items to anywhere in the valley. You’re not allowed to drive the truck or ride with your stuff, but you can’t get what you need delivered within the hour. We have our dolly‘s. Dan Metzinger is a valley GoShare driver. He spends his days waiting for orders to come in on his phone.

Dan Metzinger: I’m walking away with $35 per load.

Maria: Most of the time he’s picking up items from furniture stores that can’t fit in people’s cars. Luckily he hasn’t had to deal with the damage to his truck or the items he’s carrying.

Dan: I’ve had people say, you know, I would never wanna help people move all day long. It’s good for me because it keeps me in shape and ultimately you know, it’s really not that difficult.

Maria: So how much will it cost for you to use the service? The base rate starts at 40 bucks and customers are charged per minute.

 

GoShare and Maven Partnership

GoShare Partners with GM’s Maven to Bring Pickup Trucks to the Sharing Economy

By on June 8, 2018 in GoShare News & Info, Trucks

Our New Partnership with GM’s Maven For Short Term Pickup Truck Rental. 

GoShare announced this week that they have partnered with Maven Gig to expand truck sharing in Southern California. Maven provides short term lease options to gig economy drivers who need a short term rental pickup truck or car. GoShare is experiencing increased demand from big box retail customers utilizing GoShare’s last mile delivery service to complete with online retailers and need more trucks on the road. The program is designed to help drivers looking for short term lease options to get into the delivery service business without a big commitment. GoShare Delivery Professionals enjoy the flexibility of being an independent contractor and must pass a background check, vehicle inspection and driving history check before becoming a member of the platform. GoShare Delivery Professionals will be the first to have access to Maven’s truck rental program when they launch this month with the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado.

GoShare connects delivery professionals with businesses who need help with on demand last mile delivery. GoShare drivers who reserve a Chevrolet Colorado through Maven will be able to earn money using the GoShare app as well as other sharing economy apps including Lyft and Grubhub. Maven Gig reservations can be made weekly for a flat rate that includes unlimited mileage, roadside assistance, maintenance, and insurance. Pickup trucks can be rented for up to 3 months. Once approved, renters can quickly get on the road and start making money with their new truck. GoShare CEO Shaun Savage is optimistic about the partnership saying “The more trucks that are available the better the experience for our customers. We are excited to be able to offer more people access to the trucks that they need when they need it.”

The GM owned company will be working closely with GoShare to launch the pilot in Los Angeles. The Chevrolet Colorado can be reserved weekly for $315 plus tax. Maven Gig customers will be drawn to the pickup truck thanks to GoShare’s high hourly earnings which are the best in the industry. GoShare’s big box retail customers including Costco and Pier 1 Imports will keep the truck drivers busy. GoShare delivery professionals using the Chevy Colorado can earn $47.52 per hour plus tips.

Both companies are quickly expanding and will be looking to push the partnership to additional markets. Maven Gig is currently available in 9 markets: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. GoShare is currently available in 8 markets: Atlanta, Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Miami, New Jersey, Orange County, Phoenix, and San Diego. Denver and San Francisco are coming soon.
