The Drive-Away Division relies on independent contractors nation wide. As a contractor, you will drive vehicles from load origin to load destination. You will be responsible for the expense of the fuel for the unit and your own transportation after you deliver the vehicle. Making money in driveaway is about minimizing your transportation expense while producing as many paid miles as you are able to accomplish. Horizon Transport delivers motor homes, buses, and trucks to all 48 states and Canada.
In the following video, you will learn more about the benefits and levels of income possibilities by becoming a Drive Away contractor.

Drive-Away Service encompasses the commercial transportation of vehicles under their own power, rather than transporting them on a flatbed trailer or via towing. Drive-Away contractors literally get in and drive vehicles to their destinations, for hire.
Tow-Away Service encompasses the commercial transportation of towable vehicles (i.e. trailers). Tow-Away contractors own and operate their own "power unit". In the Recreational Vehicle Transport sector, a dual rear wheel (dually) pick-up truck is typically the power unit of choice.
Flatbed Service encompasses the commercial use of a truck and trailer designed to carry one or more vehicles, like smaller RV Trailers. It also encompasses the use of trucks which are designed to haul one trailer and tow another.
