I like how I receive SMS messages every time a new shipment is listed on the site that matches my shipping preferences. I have a lot of repeat customers, and I’ve been able to grow my business and do really well.
This service is amazing! Its keeping us busy! It’s easy to use. It allows you to easily communicate with customers and gives both parties the security they need when booking! Highly recommend this service!
110+ shipments won so far
And BAM—just got another shipment. So easy. Just like they said, it's not the lowest bidder that wins the bid.
CitizenShipper is an online marketplace where people with something to ship connect with independent transporters like you who are available to complete the transport. As you win bids and complete shipments, you earn positive feedback and improve your online profile and reputation.
What do I need to get started?
All you need is a driver’s license and vehicle insurance. After registering, you’ll also need to pass a background check, that CitizenShipper pays for, before you can officially book your first shipment. (We screen for felony convictions, DUIs and verify all contact information).
How do I get paid?
The customer pays you directly for the transport. CitizenShipper is not involved in and does not mediate any aspects of the payment. When you bid on a shipment and win, you arrange the terms of payment with the customer. Typically, the payment is made upon delivery. It's important to specify exactly what you expect in terms of payment before accepting the customer’s “book shipment” request. You can use any form of payment you want, as long as it is agreed to by both you and the customer. However, we do recommend using disputable forms of payment such as a credit card or PayPal.
Do you offer any carrier education or support?
Absolutely, CitizenShipper's Carrier Onboarding team offers FREE 1:1 onboarding sessions, building business workshops, tutorials and numerous articles and education on our site’s Help Center. We are committed to helping you succeed, and we'll support you in every way we can!
