Once you’ve completed each phase of the application process your information and documents are reviewed for accuracy. If approved, you are sent a notice to complete a background check consent form from Turn – a third party service – to get your MVR (driving record) and criminal history report. The process can take up to 14 days, but usually happens within a week.
FRAYT Drivers must meet the following criteria before qualifying and contracting with FRAYT:
Major violations include but are not limited to:
Every criminal background check is evaluated individually. FRAYT reserves the right to deny the use of the FRAYT Driver App to anyone. However, FRAYT will use none of the information in the background report in violation of any state or federal equal opportunity laws.
Disqualifying offenses may include:
If the MVR and criminal background reports show derogatory information which would make you ineligible to use the FRAYT Driver Platform, you will receive notification as a “pre-adverse” letter prepared by Turn. This correspondence first notifies you that information in the reports makes you ineligible for FRAYT, but also informs you of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the steps you can take to rectify any incorrect information. Copies of the reports, along with contact information for the agencies are attached.
You will have 7 days to take action to correct the information. If no action is taken, a “post-adverse” letter is emailed to inform you of final rejection.
No, the application fee is non-refundable.
No, there is not sufficient time for you to rent a vehicle each time a match is offered, and with the uncertainty of shipment availability, it is not reasonable to rent a vehicle in advance. Should you have a rental vehicle while your FRAYT approved vehicle is being repaired please notify us prior to using the rental vehicle with the FRAYT Platform.
You can use a long-term leased vehicle to register for FRAYT. The insurance ID and vehicle registration are typically issued to the lessee (you).
At the present time there are no means for solo drivers to register more than one vehicle though they may own several vehicles. Please use only the vehicle approved by FRAYT.
You cannot use the FRAYT Driver App if your vehicle is leased to another company. There are several reasons FRAYT cannot use your vehicle if it is in a permanent (long-term) lease agreement with a motor carrier:
FRAYT Support can be reached in the driver app under “Help” (bottom right), or via the chat feature at the bottom-right of our website. In addition, we offer the following resources for FRAYT Drivers:
When you receive a match notification, please review for “Extra Services” pay for loading/unloading before you accept.
Loading – the shippers are expected to load your vehicle, however there may be times your assistance is necessary. You will be compensated for hand loading if the shipper does not participate in the loading of your vehicle.
Unloading – you are expected to unload your vehicle and will be compensated for hand unloading. Understand and use proper lifting techniques and use proper equipment such as a hand cart. Palletized or large bulky items that are unloaded solely by the recipient at the recipient’s location are not compensated (example – by a fork truck). You are not expected to “set-up” and assemble any deliveries. You are not expected to climb stairs to deliver the product to a second floor.
FRAYT drivers must submit a copy of their current vehicle insurance ID card as part of their FRAYT registration submission. The insurance ID must show proof of liability insurance coverage from their home state with at least the minimum amount required.. The insurance ID must also show the driver as an insured or additional driver for the insurance policy.
As an independent contractor you are responsible for any injuries you sustain while performing your work. Check your insurances and coverages to ensure you are protected for any type of injury you could sustain – trip and fall out of your vehicle, injuries while lifting, to motor vehicle accidents and so on.
Contractors may be responsible for any insurance deductibles if damaged due to negligence (did not secure load, an “At-fault accident”, left vehicle unattended, etc.).
If you own a van or box truck and carry the primary liability insurance in your name (or in the name of a company you own) and are leased onto a motor carrier, and do not display the signs of any motor carrier, you are able to register to use the FRAYT Driver App. This is the only exception to vehicles leased to motor carriers.
The insurance coverage purchased by FRAYT protects the general public for bodily injury and property damage. It also insures the cargo. FRAYT’s insurance provides no coverage to driver service providers for any bodily injury they sustain nor any of their property damage. FRAYT has a “No Rider Policy'' meaning that at no time while using the FRAYT Driver App are you authorized to have riders or passengers in your vehicle. FRAYT’s insurance provides no coverage whatsoever to any passenger in the vehicle.
The beauty of being an independent contractor is that you determine when, what, why and how you work. You can work for other companies. FRAYT is intending to only supplement or be a part of the total revenue you produce. You can accept or decline any Match offer from FRAYT. You determine when you are available and when you are not.
Customers can use FRAYT to transport anything legal except Hazardous Materials, explosives, firearms, munitions, and non-prescription drugs including medical marijuana. Driver Service Providers should be aware of what you are transporting. If something may be illegal or dangerous, or of high value please contact FRAYT Support immediately. The limit of our Cargo Insurance is $25,000.
To update your existing insurance, your insurance provider must send the updated Certificate of Insurance to RMIS. The certificate holder should be Registry Monitoring Insurance Services Inc, located at 5388 Sterling Center Drive, West Lake Village, CA, 91361.
FRAYT partners with RMIS (Registry Monitoring Insurance Services) to provide continuous monitoring of Certificate of Insurance for auto and cargo coverage, as well as AM Best Ratings for insurance providers.
