So what does being an Owner Driver for Super Shuttle offer?
A great work environment – if you enjoy driving, meeting many different and interesting people then this could be for you.
Great earnings - for hard working owners and vans the return on investment is excellent.
Excellent growth prospects – as more focus is given to transport solutions that are low cost, environmentally friendly and reduce congestion, businesses, the general public, the tourism sector and government are all looking for a strong, trusted business to deal with. No other transport company in New Zealand can match Super Shuttle.
A low risk business – With low ingoing investment required and great finance terms available, there’s very little money at risk for Super Shuttle owner drivers. Many small business opportunities have exposure to bad debts, sales and marketing endeavour, property lease commitments, are exposed to the weather or need specific industry knowledge, equipment or skills to remain safe, viable and competitive - none of these things affect the Super Shuttle business. Lastly, Super Shuttle has long term contracts with all the major New Zealand airports ensuring we are strongly positioned to capture air travel growth into the future.
A scalable business – With strong operational guidelines and oversight in place from the company, managing drivers and operating multiple vans is both manageable and encouraged allowing you to grow your business within the wider business.
Future proofed – as a shared ride business we can spread the costs of driver labour, fuel, and vehicle running costs over multiple fare paying passengers on each trip meaning we have a fundamental or built-in competitive advantage that is very hard to match. Ride sharing is not just New Zealand’s future, it is the world’s future for the environment, for congestion and for lowering travel costs for travellers.
