Shippers

Simply login onto your account and enter all the information (Pick-up address, Drop-off address & pickup date/time required).

Anything can be shipped with the exception of illegal, immoral, unethical, unlawful and unsafe items. Please read our Terms for more information.

Shipments can be cancelled at any time prior to delivery only if the shipment has NOT been accepted by a driver. If a shipment has already been accepted by a driver, only shipments that are not within 2 hours of the required pick-up time can be cancelled.

Business owners can contact our team directly at sales@greatlocaldelivery.com  and we will contact you for more information.

The time for your package to reach the delivery location will vary depending on the service you picked, how far the delivery location is from the pick-up location and how busy the traffic is. Our goal is to bring your shipment to destination promptly.

  • Booked: The shipment has been booked in the system, waiting for a driver to accept the shipment.
  • Scheduled: The shipment has been accepted by a driver.
  • On the way to Pickup: The driver is on the way to the pickup location.
  • Ready for Pickup: The driver has arrived at the pickup location.
  • In-Transit: The driver is on the way to the drop-off location.

Payments

Fees are based on distance, weight & size of packages, and the type of delivery service you require. You will see a price breakdown of the actual price you will be charged before you place your shipment request.

Drivers

Register and apply through our mobile application. Provide us the required information and documents and successful candidates will be contacted.

75% of the delivery fee we charge to our customers will be paid to the drivers. The more shipments you complete, the more earnings you get.

 

Drivers are paid on a bi-weekly basis on the total amount earned in the past two completed weeks. The amount will be paid via direct deposit to your bank account. Drivers can ask for an earlier payout at any time with the understanding that a small transaction fee will be applied.

Drivers can feel free to contact our support time anytime at support@greatlocaldelivery.com or call (778) 326-0144.
