GoShare connects people who have a truck or cargo van with people and businesses nearby who need help moving, hauling and delivering large items on demand. GoShare Inc. was formed in 2014 by founder and CEO Shaun Savage. Shaun’s house painting business regularly needed a delivery service so that he didn’t have to leave the job site in the middle of the day to refill supplies. There was no such service back then and whenever Shaun had to leave the job site unsupervised he found his team to be unproductive. Some time later Shaun tried to buy a big screen TV from Costco but it wouldn’t fit in his car. After spending several hours renting a truck to bring the item home he knew there was a problem that could be solved using technology and the sharing economy. GoShare’s mission is to empower people to help people by sharing their trucks and vans. By promoting collaborative consumption we believe that we can make the world a better place. GoShare Drivers are independent contractors who earn money using their own vehicles and lending a hand to people in their communities who need their help. All GoShare drivers must pass a background check, vehicle inspection, and training before they can start driving with us. GoShare carries a cargo insurance policy to protect the items that we are carrying for our customers. The company is based in San Diego, CA and operates throughout San Diego county and parts of New Jersey with plans to expand internationally.
