A self-employed driver invoice is utilized by independently-contracted drivers for charging employers for the delivery of packages or goods through the use of a motor vehicle. Drivers can specialize in the delivery of food, newspapers, packages, floral arrangements, mail, and any other items that an individual or company may want to be transported.

What is a Self-Employed Driver?

Self-employed drivers are professionals that operate cars and trucks of all sizes for the purpose of transporting items or people from one location to another. Unlike salaried delivery drivers, those that work as contractors have the ability to deliver for multiple clients on time schedules that work for them. Additionally, self-employed drivers are responsible for providing their own vehicle, insurance, and taxes, and other administrative and legal requirements.

Recommended Delivery Vehicles

Due to the need of supplying a personally-owned vehicle for the job, delivery drivers should weigh their options carefully to provide that they aren’t needlessly wasting gas, yet aren’t missing out on larger payload deliveries due to having too small of a car. The following models are recommended for the average delivery driver/courier:

  • Ford Transit Connect – $24,275  to $29,135
