Bellhop is seeking driven, team-oriented gig workers to join their team to help people move.
Working for Bellhops is a great way to make some money. Whether you treat it as a side gig or your primary job, it’s an opportunity to meet new people and work with your hands.
Bellhop movers are paid well, enjoy flexible schedules, and work in an environment where a heavy emphasis is placed on a team mentality.
Working as a Bellhop
Much like many of the other tech-enabled businesses, such as Uber, GrubHub, DoorDash, Skip Scooters, etc., bellhops, which is the name used for those who work on the Bellhops moving crews, can work as much or as little as they want.
All you need to do is sign up for a time slot on their schedule, and then when someone requests a move, you will be given the details of where you need to be and when. This information can be found in the Bellhops app.
Requirements for Working as a Bellhop
The Bellhops business model is based largely on offering premium customer service. Bellhops knows the reputation most moving companies have, and they are trying their best to be better than everyone else.
As a result, they are looking for people who see this job as more than just a moving job.
They want people who are going to act as friends helping other friends move.
And the way in which they will determine if you’re this type of person is by interviewing you, and also by monitoring the reviews people leave you.
Too many bad reviews and you may lose chances to work, whereas repeated good reviews will help keep your schedule full.
But even if you possess all the character traits desired by Bellhops, there are still some other requirements.
To work as a mover for Bellhops you must:
Be at least 18 years old
Own a smartphone
Be able to lift 100 pounds
Be responsible for your own transportation
Pass a free online background check
Have a standard checking account with a qualified financial institution (so that you can get paid!)
Working as a Driver
In addition to working as a bellhop, you can also make some money as a driver.
For this, you will have to meet the requirements for driving professionally in your city, which will vary depending on which state you work in.
The perk of being a driver is that you will not be asked to work as a mover.
Your job consists picking the truck up from a designated location (which Bellhops will tell you when you’re assigned a job), drive to the spot of the move, and then wait for the crew to load the truck.
If you’re interested in becoming a driver, the best thing to do is to contact Bellhops, as they will be able to tell you if you qualify or not.
How Much Do Bellhops Make?
The company lists $21/hour as the average wage, but you can make more or less than this depending on how much you work and what type of work you do.
For example, if you do a lot of smaller, hourly jobs, then you may make less than if you tackle a five-hour local move.
Bellhops will tell you how much you’re guaranteed to make before you accept a job so that you can decide if it makes sense for you.
Bellhops also make money on tips. People can tip you through the app, which will also give them the chance to review your service, or people can tip you in person in cash, but make sure you declare this income on your taxes.
Be over 18 years old
Be able to lift 100 pounds
Have a smartphone, checking account, and access to transportation
