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.

What type of background is required to succeed?

Our in-house training is extensive which means providing your driving skills are good and command of English is sound, you will find this outstanding business simple enough to master.

As such our driving team have many and varied backgrounds and come from all walks of life.

All drivers are required by law to have the correct commercial driving endorsements. If you don’t currently have them that’s not an issue as they are easily, quickly and cheaply obtained. It’s something we can help guide you through.

There are some key personal characteristics that are important for us and you:

  • You really must enjoy and be interested in meeting people. It makes every day on the job an enjoyable one.
  • Enjoying driving is important.
  • You spend a lot of time on our roads, so having a calm demeanour means the occasional errant NZ driver won’t spoil your day!
  • Hard worker – the vans profitability is very consistent, very predictable and very much aligned with the hours spent on the road. The harder you and/or your van work, the more money you make.

How much can a high performing van turn over?

It depends very much on the region and how you want to operate your business but top performing 24/7 shifted vans in Auckland for example, are turning over up to $350,000 pa. Region specific detail is available in the information pack here.

Whether you’re looking for a great small business opportunity or a lifestyle change, becoming an Owner Driver with Super Shuttle could be exactly what you’re looking for.
