A parts delivery driver works for an auto parts outlet. Automotive parts are typically delivered to local dealerships and repair shops. Once orders are pulled, the driver loads the parts into the vehicle. On small orders, the driver might simply set a box on the front seat. Larger orders may require the use of a dolly to load up the back end of the vehicle.
The delivery driver is an important member of the store team and is primarily responsible for providing safe, timely and correct parts deliveries to wholesale customers, establishing an efficient route of delivery, maintaining a professional attitude, conduct and appearance. At the point of delivery, the parts employee becomes a customer service representative. Good deliverers build rapport with operators of typical local repair shops. They maintain friendly, courteous relationships that encourage repeat business and deter shop owners or managers from looking for other parts providers on future orders.
Most outlets that provide delivery services have their own trucks, cars or vans for deliveries. A driver is generally responsible for basic maintenance of the vehicle and alerting a manager for needed repairs.
