Own and grow your own business

Mainfreight is always on the lookout for owner drivers to help grow our business – both in the main centres and in some of the country’s most affordable and beautiful provincial cities and towns.

Being an Owner Driver with Mainfreight gives you the freedom and opportunity of having your own business, while being backed by a team that can help you build up a customer base and provide ongoing work.  

As a Mainfreight Owner Driver, you will have access to  business advice, some of the latest technologies and career progression opportunities.  While you are technically your own boss, you will always be included as an integral member of the Mainfreight family. 

What will you need as an Owner Driver:

  • An accountant. You are setting up your own business as an independent contractor so you want the best business and tax advice – and you’ll need to be GST registered
  • Full insurance including carrier liability, public liability and WorkCover
  • A strong work ethic and the ability to get along well with people from all walks of life
  • An eye for detail and an understanding that you are the face of our business. Pride in appearance is of utmost importance
