Truck, Load, Customers AND Business as though it was your own?
Your Big Opportunity to Become a Self-Employed Contract Driver .
Benefits to the Driving work-force are:
We provide you with the processes and training to establish your own
business as a self employed Contract Driver, and an availability of various short-term contracts
that utilise your current experience without you having to

ongoing training plan that will recognise your current competencies
and then assess, train and up-skill you as a Driver to attain higher
standards and ultimately New Zealand National Certificates and other
We know there is a good number of more
mature and well-experienced Heavy Truck Drivers, who (because of
long hours and other constraints which are clearly not compatible
with a Driver's desire for normal home and family life) do not wish
to continue committing to extended-hours operations on a permanent
basis, but are clearly willing to undertake fixed-term contracts.
E.g. You're a driver who is doesn't really want to carry on doing
three return Auckland-Wellington Line-hauls a week,
but would be quite happy to do one or two return trips, or need to
do days only, or nights only, or not mid-week, etc.
Before, if you wanted to stay in our industry you had to do what the
boss offered, and you didn't have a choice....
But now you do have a choice!

Operate Your Own Business as a
Self-Employed Contract Driver....
Now you can have the benefits of being

A Contract Driver with Drivers On Call Limited operates his own
business and manages his own affairs. You contract to us, we pay you
a pre-agreed fee per day for the days you work. You pay your taxes

manuals and assistance you need to plan, set-up and operate your own
Dealing With The "Economic Downturn"
There is no doubt that the current
economic climate is creating challenges, both for employers and for
wage workers. Existing Road Transport Operators have come under
pressure to reduce overheads and trim staff and costs, and therefore
job-security is not what it used to be.
Unfortunately we've seen instances where really good drivers have
been made redundant by companies looking to cut back on staffing
costs, or where Road Transport Operators have lost contracts they
However, at the same time there are also new opportunities.
Consider operating your own business as a Contract Driver for
Drivers On Call.
Manage your own destiny as well as your lifestyle, and stay in the
industry you love.
Contract-staffing is a 100% tax-deductable solution that
allows Road Transport Operators the flexibility to keep their rigs
and then call on Drivers On Call Ltd. to supply motivated, highly
capable, drug-free, vetted, experienced, qualified, and
skill-verified Contract Drivers on a relief basis, as and when
required. This requirement may also come about because of holiday or
sickness leave, or fluctuations in work volumes.
If a Road Transport Operator can seize an opportunity to gain an
additional, or new, short term contract, then he will need a good
short term Driver - that could be you!
Knowing that we can provide excellent Contract
Drivers, (without the liabilities and costs of creating a new staff
position) that operator can have the confidence to bid for that new
contract, so we all win.
Manage your own destiny
Contract Driving is your solution!
Manage your own business!
