If you hire your own driver, you will have to:
· Make sure their driving record is clean
· Train them
· Provide Insurance
· Maintain the Vehicle
Employees tend to do jack rabbit takeoffs, harsh braking, hard cornering, or speeding when driving a company car. We have ways to track our employees driving behaviors on the road so they refrain from doing these things which helps keep your stuff safe.
Think about what happens if your driver calls in sick or goes on vacation.
Your vehicle may not be big enough which would require you to rent a bigger truck.
Let’s focus on renting a truck for a moment.
It takes time to find a truck rental, drive to the truck, fill out paperwork, and place insurance on the truck. You’ll also need to make sure you have the correct license to drive the truck. This means having a Class A or B license with an air brakes endorsement and a chauffeur license.
Then you have to look over the truck for damage before you take the truck, drive to the location, load the truck, drive to another location, unload the truck, head back to the rental location, clean the truck, fuel the truck, hope no damage is done to the truck, and then take the truck back to rental location.
Inspect the truck again…
Hope the rental place agrees that you have not damaged the truck, and you have refueled the truck to their specifications.
