A word of warning about how to save more money fast hittheroad.ca

One thing I though to add is that, in appealing to readers that it’s not a scam, hittheroad makes reference to its membership in the better business how to save more money fast bureau. Here’s the thing: if you drive for hittheroad, you don’t have any recourse to the BBB or any other how to save more money fast consumer association. The reason is that, as a driver, you’re not considered a consumer/customer per se. So when you get ripped off (like me) and complain to the BBB, you’re told that your complaint is “beyond the purview” of the BBB. For that reason, hittheroad (or rather the registered company, canadadriveaway) has a great rating with the BBB – that rating only reflecting commercial transactions between canadadriveaway and vehicle how to save more money fast owners. Incidentally, hittheroad.Ca is not registered as a company in ontario (unlike canadadriveaway).

Of course since drivers aren’t employees either, there’s no recourse to labour relations agencies either. Worse still, the only contract you sign as a driver is between how to save more money fast you and the vehicle owner (and not hittheroad.Ca). So at the end of the day, you’ve got no paper that says hittheroad.Ca has taken your deposit much less when they’re obligated to return it. You’re high and dry, in other words – and I’d guess that that’s no accident, either.

First, I want everyone to know about the wonderful people at how to save more money fast “toronto driveaway”! They are pioneers in this business, established 57 years ago, and are the dearest people you could hope to meet. I’ve done business with them on 12-15 occasions over many years, and they’ve been consistently kind, generous and thoughtful every time. The good folks at toronto driveaway pay well, and are upfront and reliable about details. On a few occasions, I did not have much money to spare, and when I delivered the car (far away from home), they went to my bank and deposited my payment there how to save more money fast so that i would have immediate access to it!

I did check into hit-the-road once, when toronto driveaway didn’t happen to have a vehicle available for me, and my experience with this guy, david smaller, was horrible. My opening email exchange was so aggressive and condescending on how to save more money fast his part, that I told him I would not do business with how to save more money fast him. In those few exchanges, he also lied about toronto driveaway’s business approach (he didn’t know I had years of experience with them, and tried to tell me they don’t pay for this and that, when I knew from years of doing business with them how to save more money fast that do, etc).

I’m going to be calling BBB tomorrow, because I can’t be content with him getting away with having those how to save more money fast letters “BBB” at the end of his business name – and I don’t imagine the BBB appreciates people cheapening the reputation and how to save more money fast meaning of those letters, and need to follow up on complaints. Also, it makes me angry that he changed his name to how to save more money fast “canada driveaway” to try to piggy back the good business that has how to save more money fast been established by “toronto driveaway” as though he might capitalize on the driveaway name and how to save more money fast reputation, but appear to be bigger than them.

The owner sounds like a real slimeball; he’ll say anything to get a deal without a thought how to save more money fast to ethics or even the future. Ironically, he’s the loser here as well as the drivers because how to save more money fast his implementation of an admittedly good idea is being executed how to save more money fast without consideration to those involved except to those who are how to save more money fast paying him. Well he needs good drivers too and if he was how to save more money fast honest with them he could pay them less for expenses how to save more money fast increasing his profit. Many people would happily pay for part of the gas how to save more money fast if they knew that deposit was almost assured as long how to save more money fast as they respected the conditions previously agreed upon. Another idea is to allow the driver more time to how to save more money fast deliver the car. I would hazard a guess that most drivers want to how to save more money fast make a vacation/adventure out of that long haul of a drive which how to save more money fast is impossible if you’re dashing across the country with a clock ticking. Give them 5-10 days to arrive and many would pay all of how to save more money fast the gas. They’d bring camping equipment, have no hotel expenses, and would be free to explore vast areas of this how to save more money fast wonderfully diverse continent spending very little. Most car owners probably couldn’t care less if there car is there on monday how to save more money fast or friday. Some would if that’s their only car but many would not. And you could offer the service for less for those how to save more money fast ones to say thank you for their flexibility.

Thanks a whole lot for posting your comments. I am a recently retired very experienced driver, and was under what is obviously now a complete delusion how to save more money fast that driving for a driveaway company was an actual part-time occupation. Now it seems that it is really for someone who how to save more money fast is looking for a cheap way to travel and see how to save more money fast the country but without coming out of it with any how to save more money fast money. Some of it is still a little unclear after all how to save more money fast the posts, but it seems like you actually end up paying for how to save more money fast the privilege rather than making a few dollars.

So let me see if I have this correct.. You pay a deposit. You drive, spend out for gas. You spend out for meals, accommodations and miscellaneous for yourself. You deliver the car on time and in good shape how to save more money fast and the owner pays you…. So is that the money that is supposed to pay how to save more money fast for all your trouble and from which you pay your how to save more money fast personal expenses and hope you come out ahead? And the gas is a separate account to be reimbursed?? And this followed by paying for a flight home?? And then someday hoping to get the deposit back….? Wow was I ever wrong about thinking I might make how to save more money fast money doing this!!

The original pickup date was to be june 5. That day came and went without any contact from hit how to save more money fast the road until I inquired the following monday. I received apologies for that and was assured he was how to save more money fast working on a driver. I finally got confirmation of a pickup on june 19th how to save more money fast but that date didn’t work for me. I arranged for a sat. June 21st pickup and forwarded all contact information to hit how to save more money fast the road. I didn’t receive confirmation of the pickup and at the appropriate how to save more money fast time my pickup contact was waiting for the driver. I finally received a call from david smaller saying the how to save more money fast driver would be there at 1pm (not the 12noon agreed upon). He finally phoned my pickup contact and asked her if how to save more money fast she could pickup the driver that he was having bused how to save more money fast in. He also said the driver didn’t have the paperwork and could she take the driver how to save more money fast to have the paperwork printed off! She was able to do this because of her home how to save more money fast office and was kind enough to go and pick up how to save more money fast the driver. Unwanted stress but in the end it worked out. The car arrived out west on the correct date with how to save more money fast no issues. When I was given the paperwork to sign off it how to save more money fast stated I was to pay the driver $500 in cash! I was told what the fee was and that half how to save more money fast would be charged to my card upon pickup and half how to save more money fast upon delivery. I was under the impression that hit the road reimbursed how to save more money fast the drivers so there was no hassles about them getting how to save more money fast the money once they showed up with the car. The driver was of course stressed about this as she how to save more money fast was to leave first thing the next morning. We tried contacting mr. Smaller but could not get through. He did get hold of me the next morning and how to save more money fast explained that half was charged to my card and I how to save more money fast was indeed to pay the driver the $500 cash and that would total what I was quoted. As it turned out the driver had forgotten something in how to save more money fast the car and didn’t leave so I was able to give back her how to save more money fast item and hand over the cash.

A little more on my excellent experiences with toronto driveaway how to save more money fast service. Starting back in 1978, I drove my first toronto driveaway service car down to how to save more money fast florida. Being young, and loving to fly, I so enjoyed it that I kept at it. I would pick up a car the day before I how to save more money fast was to leave, work friday at GM, leave on saturday morning, drive to columbia SC, get a motel and then up early on sunday, drive to the drop-off point (usually fort lauderdale FLA) and hop on a pre-arranged flight (usually wardrair, canada 3000 or) peoples’ express fly home sunday night and be at work for how to save more money fast monday morning at GM. I used to do this dozens of times. I got to know the airline crews! Of course, in the spring the drive would be in reverse, again done on the weekends and working throughout the week. Fortunately, very rarely did anything screw up. Once time a bad storm cancelled the cheap flights from how to save more money fast florida and I had to pay a huge sum ($500.00) to air canada to get back to GM and keep how to save more money fast my employment. I enjoyed it so that I didn’t mind. Over the years, ron coady gained trust in me and, when he was ‘stuck’ for a driver, I would go down/back on expenses (I loved that). I drove everything and had many, many experiences. I don’t regret a moment. Now at 64, driving is not so enjoyable and, because I did much overtime at GM, I own some pretty cool cars, have retired and spend time on the porch with my how to save more money fast wife and two ‘doodle dogs’. I write for old autos and have a couple of how to save more money fast articles in hemmings motor news. I will never forget my enjoyable road trips with toronto how to save more money fast driveaway service. It’s a highway song…rollin’ on and on…its a highway songggg…..

I agree with others about the tone setting off alarm how to save more money fast bells. Reading over the drivers page on the canadadriveaway website made how to save more money fast me feel condescended to: “please be advised that phoning our office will not improve how to save more money fast your chances of being selected as a driver. It will demonstrate that you have difficulty following instructions.” ouch. It would be interesting to hear from the other side, the individuals having their cars driven from point a to how to save more money fast point b. It seems to me that more care is given to how to save more money fast the relationship with them than with the drivers but perhaps how to save more money fast that is not even the case.

I will also be signing up for torontodriveaway but did how to save more money fast not know that you had to be 30 to drive how to save more money fast and we are 26 and 27. Darn. At the moment we are considering buying a cheap car how to save more money fast to drive across because at the very least we can how to save more money fast avoid crazy drop fees from car rental companies. We would hope to sell the car once in vancouver how to save more money fast and recoup some of our money. If you have any other suggestions about one way cross how to save more money fast country travel, we would love to hear them.
