What does a typical day of delivering look like for you? I start each day picking up orders from a local bakery, pharmacy, or another type of business, and load up my car. The dispatch team and I work together to determine the most efficient route so that we get all of the deliveries done on time. Everyday I get to discover new places around San Diego and meet friendly people from local businesses.
What do you love most about driving for Dropoff? I like being able to use my own car to make a living. Dropoff customers are always happy when we arrive to deliver their orders so quickly, which is very rewarding. I also really appreciate the support I get from the dispatcher – if there is ever an issue with a delivery or I can’t find an address, I can count on them to help get it resolved.
What has been your favorite delivery? I once got to deliver a giant check from a local print shop. It was for $5,000 and about 7 feet long! A lot of people saw me carrying it and thought they had won a bunch of money. It was pretty funny.
What’s something that most people don’t know about you? I enjoy playing guitar and making music in my free time. I also build guitar effect pedals and have a small business selling them online with a few of my friends.
