Employees Are Expensive

Small contractors typically only have a few skilled employees working for them and do not have the need or budget required to hire a full-time supply runner. This is where the inefficiencies and loss of profits can come in. If a contractor only employs skilled labor, then they’ll likely be forced to send their skilled labor to pick up supplies. As a result, they’ll be paying premium wage rates for simple deliveries, causing them to spend more money than they need to.

Boost Employee Productivity

When skilled labor is assigned to run errands, it’s tough for them to regain focus when they get back on the job site. People can only multi-task so much. When they’re doing too many different things, they’ll become less productive. As a result, they’ll spend additional working hours every month regaining focus. In terms of payroll, this means hundreds of dollars in additional and unnecessary wage expenses every month.

Improve Morale At Work

Construction workers want to do, well, construction work. When skilled labor is sent to shop for supplies it’s not just expensive; it’s also bad for morale. Skilled laborers want to utilize their industry-specific skills and directly contribute to projects on the job site. Using Hot Truck will remove the burden of supply deliveries from your employee’s. It will allow them to do what they’re experts at – construction work.
