Contract Drivers Wanted To Move Trailer Skips Around Canberra

Trailer Skips Canberra canberra-2600, Australian Capital Territory

Job Description

Trailer Skips Canberra (a family owned local business) requires a subcontract driver to deliver and take our tipping trailer based skips to the tip.
Availability 7 days a week preferred.
You will need to supply your own "tow" vehicle, preferably a ute, 4WD or station wagon.
Payment is on a contract basis per move.
Flexible hours; about 10 hours per week
No time pressure; enjoy a chat with our clients.
Towing and backing experience is required, but further training can be provided.
Last year my driver grossed approximately $15,000

The role:
Pick up and deliver 8'x5’ tandem trailers to/from clients for them to fill as skips;
• Offload (tip and perhaps some hand unloading of selected items for recycling);
• The trailers are 8’ x 5’ tandems with high sides and manual winch tippers;
• Maintain excel spread sheet of jobs, location of skips and payments;
• Collect some cash payments;
• Communicate effectively with clients and proprietor;
• An average skip collection, transport, offload and delivery to next job takes 1-2 hours;
• Subcontractor to provide own vehicle and fuel, phone and internet access, and insurances.
• 7 skip trailers currently in use with average 5 loads a week
• This business has been running for approximately 8 years and is the only business of this type in Canberra, although similar businesses operate in other cities.
The business is very much the same as a truck based skip business, with some advantages:
The tandem trailers are dropped off at a customer’s sites/homes, they fill them, we then collect them and dispose of the contents;
• We can often get a skip closer to the clients rubbish due to our smaller vehicle than alternative skips using a truck, including battle axe blocks, under buildings, through gates into back yards, in or through carports or garages, in townhouse developments or just down a driveway to the garage;
• The rear doors open for easy loading;
• Due to the small size of our business, we can generally do quick deliveries and collections, and accommodate a lot of clients requirements; and
• To our knowledge, we have the cheapest 4, 5 & 6m3 skips in town
The average load weighs about 600kg, plus the skip trailer at about 700kg.
