What is a Personal Driver and a Chase Driver?
Personal Driver: Provide driving services in the Member’s vehicle. Personal drivers must be 25 years old. Personal drivers receive trip offers and reservation details via their smart phone application. The certification process is designed to ensure the marketplace is customer service & tech savvy. Personal drivers are rigorously screened and thus have a higher, tax deductible on boarding investment. Personal Drivers drive the Member's vehicle one-way or round-trip.
Chase Driver: Provides driving services in their own vehicle. Chase drivers must be at least 18 years old. Like personal drivers, chase drivers receive trip offers and reservation details through their smart phone application. Chase drivers support one-way trip logistics. The highest volume of one-way trips is on nights and weekend.
All RedCap Drivers are independent contractors.
What is an independent contractor?
Click here for an explanation from the IRS. Savvy independent contractors are very keen to maximizing their take home revenue. Some tax deductions include screening fees, uniform costs, gas, mileage and wear-and-tear associated with transportation to a pickup location of a reservation. Independent contractors are issued a 1099 tax form and a W9 at the end of the year.
Are Drivers insured?
Yes. RedCap Personal Drivers are insured in two ways: 1) they are covered as an occasional and permissive user on your existing auto policy and, 2) RedCap maintains a policy to cover the driving of hired and non-owned automobiles. The policy has a coverage limit of $2,000,000 and $1,000,000 per occurrence.
Is RedCap insured?
Yes. RedCap carries three types of coverage to insure its business of driving members in their own vehicles: 1) General Liability coverage for any event that occurs during the provision of RedCap service, 2) Third Party Crime Policy (Bonding) that protects our members from actions by our drivers involving personal property or bodily injury and 3) Hired/Non-owned Auto Liability policy that specifically covers RedCap Personal Drivers when driving the vehicles of RedCap members.
How many trips will I get a week?
The marketplace allows you to BUILD YOUR BUSINESS. Referring drivers, members and partner accounts makes this opportunity very satisfying. This is a great opportunity to supplement your income. RedCap's trip volume is highest at night and on the weekends. Therefore, your availability (time of day, day of week, geographic location etc) will determine your likelihood of being busy. This is not immediately a full-time opportunity and you should not expect a full-time income from on demand business, rather preferred accounts and networking opportunities.
What will I need to pay for?
Driving record, background check – all drivers. Drug test, uniform & simulation trip – personal drivers. Fee is calculated according to state government regulation (i.e. where your driver’s licensed is registered and which state(s) your background check will be conducted and in some cases multiple background checks may be processed).
Do I need to visit RedCap offices?
Drivers do not need to inconvenience themselves by coming into the offices for any reason; in fact it is highly distracting to the team as they are actively communicating with Members and drivers providing services. During the certification process, you will have a face-to-face appointments with a RedCap liaison during your simulation trip. This is a virtual organization with a strong community that connects on a daily basis. We have weekly focus groups meetings, an active social network and we occasionally bring drivers together for events. If you haven't been a part of a virtual community before, you are not alone. If you are not interested in being a part of a virtual community, we hope we can change your mind. If you seriously have no interest in joining a virtual community, this opportunity may not be for you.
