    I’ve had that discussion with him and he seems to think that they cover him as long as he is fully comp.

    I did say that he would need to alter his insurance but he seems to know differently .
    I was told Amazon cover goods in transit insurance but the courier needs to make sure their insurance provides the correct cover for the vehicle. Loads of people have been caught out after thinking they had the correct cover.

    Yes they are , i was doing it last xmas .

    You have to register for self assessment and pay your own tax but you are covered by amazon for insurance .
    If it gets busy they pay more than £54 . I was getting anything between £75 and £92 for 4 hours in the run up to xmas last year .
    How the hell do I get involved with this? £92 for 4 hours driving about sounds good to me

    Would that not be illegal, to fine someone for being off sick?
    They're not employees so won't be entitled to sick pay.

    They will likely sign a contract committing to cover various shifts and will have to pay a penalty for missing that shift.

    A family friend is doing delivery work for amazon as a second job and seems to be making a surprising amount of cash. I'd look into that if I was you mate.

    Why do you suppose they stipulate 4 door cars? I would have thought 3 door cars would be ideal.

    Just had a look at the Amazon Flex thing but it would seem they're not looking for anyone at this point in time.

    Based on the stipulation, exclusions and info re: calculating workload v time spend, it can only be space for items I suppose.

    Still not getting it.

    My own car is 2 door, but the back seats fold down. That gives me plenty storage room and access from the rear. I would've thought it ideal for this type of work.

    The ad does say that different options may become available, and it may be that there are legal issues (liability for example) that need to be sorted out first.
