3 Awesome Things About Being a Household Goods Delivery Driver
1) Client Interaction – Many lines of work focus on the individual’s ability to separate himself and overcome opposition selfishly for personal gain. This tends to leave individuals in the habit of catering only to their personal needs and forgetting some of the most fulfilling parts of being human:
interacting with one another, getting the satisfaction of helping others, and sharing our experiences. This lacking is not the case for a Household Goods Driver. After the end of each shift, the driver feels accomplished in more than just a selfish way. The driver can feel assured that his work was good-natured and that he shared a valuable interpersonal relationship with a client. Plus, we are all made up of our accumulated experiences and environments that life has brought before us. Working with new clients all the time enriches one’s perspective and keeps one in touch with the depth and wonder of life beyond themselves.
2) The View – One of the most common complaints and fears in life is the feeling of being stuck. We dread the idea of monotony and a life spent in auto-pilot, growing tired of seeing the same old sights every day. When a delivery driver is out there on the road, this fear is not anywhere in sight. Different vistas are the norm and the driver gets the rejuvenating and life-affirming privilege of experiencing the vastness of the world. Every area of the globe is full of nuance and enrichment only to be found in that particular place, and a Household Goods Driver gets to experience this as a lifestyle. The life of a Household Goods Driver actively denies the mundane by experiencing all walks of life, from crowded cities full of vibrant life and bright lights to sprawling rural areas full of lush greens and golden hay down to the small town comforts full of local shops and restaurants.
3) Pay – The compensation of a Household Goods Driver is more than your traditional freight driver because it requires a different set of skills. Household Goods Drivers have to problem solve and are paid proportionally to the problems they solve. Freight drivers are asked only to transport, drop off, and leave. A Household Goods Driver is required to use more critical thinking skills. They have to plan out how to use space correctly and how to safely unload and transport valued goods with sentimental value to clients. Once the driver arrives at the client’s house, it is also expected that he be likable and personable. Making the customer feel at ease during the stressful process of moving and making them comfortable while inside the customers home. For these reasons the Household Goods Driver is compensated accordingly.
