5 benefits of being a freelance HGV driver

5 benefits of being a freelance HGV driver

Being sat in an office in front of a computer is fine for some, but it’s not for everyone: some people need the freedom that only driving jobs can provide. The vast majority of people with freelance HGV driving jobs do it because they love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

The working pattern

The hours of some driving jobs are often long but they pay very well. This is complemented by the ability to choose your own hours, meaning that with some hard work you can earn enough money to enjoy your downtime too. There is nothing more satisfying than finishing a long haul or international journey and knowing you have a few days after you get back to unwind and relax.

 

Get to see the country and beyond

All over the country there are HGV Class 1 jobs, HGV Class 2 jobs and various other driving jobs in every town and city. Driving jobs in Dartford may take you to Maidstone, Portsmouth, London, Cardiff, Glasgow or even Düsseldorf. There are wonderful parts of the country, different landscapes, incredible sunrises and experiences that most people will never have in their working life. Although international jobs can be challenging in terms of paperwork, they can be the most rewarding. How many other jobs would have you driving through the north Italian mountains at six o’clock on a crisp Sunday morning?

 

Grow your own skill set

There are many different types of delivery driver jobs that can require different licenses and training. Building your own skill set is one of the most rewarding elements of an ambitious career in driving. Gaining these different skills will vastly open up the number and scope of driving jobs you are able to take on and open a wealth of possibilities at home and abroad.

Build your own career path

Unlike working in most office-based organisations, there is no set structure to a freelance career in driving. Although some people see that lack of structure as a problem, others enjoy mapping their career path by building a network of companies that allow you to further your own development. It is the flexibility that appeals to many people and the rewards that come from hard work and reliability.

 

A steady career

Last year, according to government statistics, 1.65 billion tonnes of freight was carried in the U.K – a figure that is growing. A HGV license will find you work in any part of the country, and in some instances, almost any part of the world.
