The best vehicle movement company around

Featured review

Engineius selected this as a representative review
Engineius are a relatively new company in the vehicle movement industry but as a collective they have a huge amount of knowledge and experience within the business. The office support staff are superb and keep promises when they need to get back to you and do so with a very positive attitude. This is almost unheard of in this industry! If you want to be in control of your days work, love to drive and meet new and interesting people, then maybe this would suit you. You will need to be resilient, resourceful and have the time to plan your day / week in advance and be prepared for possible changes which happen through no fault of the company. Contrary to other comments that I have seen on this medium, if a job is cancelled within 24 hours, you do get a contribution payment and if a job is cancelled once you are travelling to it, you get full value for that job. In summary, a professional company with talented office staff and sound management who really do care about their drivers and staff. Highly recommended.

Pros

Best in the business

Cons

Not many - mainly of your own doing!

Enjoy my work but not really paid enough

Long hours which I was aware of when I started. Pay looks good but when you take into account the hors worked in a day it tends to be near minimum wage.

Pros

Get out and about and mostly drive very new vehicles

Cons

Long hours

Good pay but lot of issues to overcome and no job description.

The job is easy and laid back. Also the pay is good. But everyday you have to face another hardship to overcome. Also you can't plan your evening because If something goes wrong, you may not be able to go home on time.

Think twice

This job cost me almost my entire savings in the 6 months I was there due to having to pay for commute to jobs nationwide yourself which usually can run into hundreds of pounds daily and must wait two weeks for your money to be refunded. You work on average 10-12 hours days, barely get any support from operations teams when needed. Make sure you have a least a £1000 sub to cover the commute to jobs for the first two weeks.

Pros

Driving different cars

Cons

Long hours, poor pay, expenses refunded after 2 weeks which will keep you out of pocket every time.

It’s a job

I like the job and the travel bit but no fuel card no travel expenses to or from jobs I seldom leave Scotland as travel is not cost affective and if not for my bus pass could not do the job

Brilliant work, ridiculous hours.

Contracted vehicle delivery driver based in Bristol. Get to drive a range of lovely cars, meeting lovely customers and the freedom of being out on the road with no calls/emails etc. But you need to accept days are long - don't be surprised to be working 12-15 hours a day and sometimes longer. As a contracted driver you get paid a minimum amount each week and all of your travel expenses paid which is good but it means the planning team will send you on a long train journey between jobs therefore you might work 15 hours a day but still only get £100 before tax. The job is brilliant but if the thought of being 200 miles from home at 6pm on a Friday night scares you the jobs not for you.

Stressful,have to pay in advance for expenses!

They only care about delivery nothing else,after all expenses out,the pay they said I would earn I didn't get them still need to pay tax as self employed no benefits with this job at all would avoid like the plague!!

Good job, poor pay

This job is nice if we are talking albout driving, but they don't pay for return to home, so most of jobs is not worth to do, because payment is around £65,and we have to pay for train £30, and you can leave home 9am, and back 5pm, so 8 hours, and £35 profit

Great please yourself work, work as much or as little as you like.

Great job for anyone that doesn't want a regular office job.You work alone so must enjoy your own company. Need to be able to plan your routes back home.

Pros

Driving decent cars around the country

Cons

Pay could be better, relying on trains to get home at times that aren't always reliable.

Thank you for your continued support and for being an advocate of Engineius! We're really happy that you are in our network.Engineius Team

Great company to work for.

They have great Portal for picking the jobs to suit you and a great backup team. The money can be good if you are prepared to work hard. Management seem to be hands on.

Pros

To choose your jobs and work to suit you.

Cons

Long hours, cancellations can be a nuisance but these things happen.

Flexible driving work

The online portal allows you to choose (or reject) jobs so you’re in control of work/life balance. They will ask you to drive a wide range of vehicles. Jobs generally start or finish within a reasonable distance from home. You are responsible for covering your own fares so research that before taking a delivery. They pay promptly and reliably straight into your bank account. They are well regarded within the auto industry.

Pros

Total flexibility. You choose when to work and which jobs to take.

Cons

Pay is not very generous

Fun

Definitely the best trade plate company to work at currently, it allows you to fit other things around your life. Their app is set up to pick your own jobs and plan your own days. Great priced jobs

Pros

Freedom

Cons

Pay for own travel

Great job for work life balance and to get to drive places that you choose!

If you want mega pay then unfortunately this might not be the role for you, but if you want work life balance, freedom to pick where and when you work and have a chance to drive places that you choose then yes this job is brilliant!

Pros

Freedom to choose which jobs

Work ok pay poor

Picking cars and dropping them off. Fairly straightforward but needs a bit of experience in public transport in the UK. Driving to wherever from wherever and getting back again. It’s hard to make more than £60 a day. Driving a car twenty miles for £30 might seem ok. But when you need to travel 40 miles by bus to get there then another 40 miles back by public transport. Deduct £15 for bus and train and now you’re earning £2 or £3 per hour?

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

Poor end pay

Great job if you work hard & are very organised!

Engineius provide an app-platform for you to work self-employed as a trade plate driver, you get to choose the jobs that appeal but you must logistically tie them in with other jobs to make it work. I have been working through Enginieius for over a year now & they have helped me enormously providing modules to learn the process, insurance to drive the vehicles along with trade plates to hire at a small cost of £30. The team at HQ are really positive & help with any problems that arise, it can be long hours but if your organised & a bit tech savvy then this can be a great great great job....even Donald Trump would enjoy it! Try it, you may just enjoy it as much as me.

Pros

Seeing the UK, excellent pay for the sector, drive different vehicles

Cons

Long hours, at times stressful meeting times of pick ups & drop offs, self employed so your responsible for HMRC etc etc

daily uncertainty

work is picked up on an app or given directly via the office staff. jobs can be added and taken away at the offices will - no payment for removed jobs regardless of at what stage this is done. drivers are expected to pay for fuel and claim it back on expenses

Pros

flexible

Cons

unpredictable

Just another 2 a penny trade plate company

Engineius are just another 2 a penny trade plate company that make out that they're something better. They ask you to send all your personal info via their website and then following that process they dont invite you for interview but they then request you to attend a presentation. This is a self employed role and not paye so not good. Sh***y company, sh***y pay and sh** job thoigh though
