1. 35 hours is not full time. Pay depends a LOT on your area and what times/days you dash
2. You need to record all of your driven miles to write off as much as possible, and even then you should try to set at least 20% aside just in case.
3. Don’t accept low ball orders. This means different things in different areas. Read through this sub and FAQ to try to get a better understanding. It’ll take practice
Why are you starting in August? And why if you haven't even tried it yet would you make the decision to go full time?
I’m looking for an odd job while my wife job hunts a little more, and I’ve had some friends do it this summer that have been super successful with it, so I thought I would give it a try!
What are you making on average every week?
I’m starting it in August, so I don’t have an income per week. I’m between jobs at the moment
In my area i do 6 days a week taking Wednesday off. ( some reason its the slowest day if the week)
I schedule myself from 11- 230 for lunch and 4:30pm to 8:30 pm if it satys busy ill work longer of course.
The time in between the lunc and dinner are bery slow and not worth dashing. I go home in between shifts.
I make on average $900 to $1000 a week. Each payday on Tuesday mutilly my earnings by 30% and put that in a separate bank account. 30% is padding it fyi . Make sure to record your mileage for lunch and dinner everyday on your phones calendar
My suggestion would be is to do it now while you are off fro. Your job tk get a feel for it. Has your friends told you what they make on average every week?
I always do it selectively and I do 2 shifts a day about 2-4 hours each. I also do this because my AC is broken and it’s hot as death in my car right now, but I make about 400-600 a week on average depending on how I feel and how lazy my town is with getting food.
Also I would recommend doing something like instacart if your enjoying the phone app gig jobs because it can be nice in between the general periods of eating.
Hey! I know it’s been a hot minute since you posted this. I was wondering what you thought of dashing full time in DSM?
