Meet Roger and learn why he uses GoShare to work when he wants and earn money with his truck.
Roger: Hi my name is Roger. I have a 2014 F-150. Grew up in Vista. So North County, not too far from here, like 25 miles. I’m a huge baseball fan. A Dodger fan, that was the first game that my dad ever took me to so for whatever reason that stuck. A big Dallas Cowboys fan. We used to go to Sunday dinner at grandma’s house and back then, you know, there’s only two games on and one of them was always the Cowboys, so that’s where that came from.
GoShare: What has been your experience working with GoShare?
Roger: I had a really fantastic experience. There was a woman named Geraldine and she was moving out of her home. You know I did like two or three jobs for her and she was just the kindest woman. I felt amazing and privileged to help her out. I’ve done quite a few deliveries from Costco, you know big tvs, couches. Quite a few items from Pier 1 Imports. Furniture items, couches, tables, things like that.
GoShare: Why should customers use GoShare?
Roger: It’s quick and easy. You know you don’t have to go procure a vehicle from somewhere else. You don’t have to, you know, wait for the vendor to say, “Well we can deliver that, you know, 2 days from Friday” or something like that. You can just pick that time; “I’m gonna be home” and you could get that item delivered right away. So definitely that convenience aspect is probably I think the most important.
GoShare: What would you tell someone interested in joining GoShare?
Roger: The other drivers are great. You know, a bunch of great guys that I’ve worked with. Secondly, it offers people who need it the flexibility to really make a very decent income. But you know you don’t have to do that 9 to 5, you don’t have to do the 7 to 4, no commuting. So I mean, for me that actually helps me out immensely. Family is always number one for me and with four kids there’s a lot of activities and, you know, I went – being in an office environment missing a lot of that stuff, and I just didn’t like it. And thankfully, you know, the sharing economy has offered people opportunities that they didn’t have before and that flexibility is one of them and it’s fantastic. If you know you don’t wanna do the 9 to 5 anymore, you want to make a little extra money on the weekends, you’ve got your truck. It’s, you know, I love it. So I mean I would encourage any of my friends who wanted to do it, you know, give it a go if they wanted to.
