My only complaint is the pay could be higher for longer trips Two hour short trips are only about 22$, but longer distances aren’t worth it due to high gas prices... like $50 for a 200 mile tripBut, they are easy to work for - everything is online based. Paid bi-weekly.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Pay

Not very challenging but good extra income for retirees or side gig. Bommerrang does give you plenty of notice on your next client and usually very good riders.
Pros
Working on your own, no boss.
Cons
Not enough pay for the wear and tear on your vehicle.

I am so pleased to have found boomerang in the midst of some life changes I was going through. I specifically needed a "build your own schedule" job, which are pretty hard to find. I found Boomerang on indeed and was driving my first client in a week. Benefits of Boomerang:Schedule: The text-to-calendar model of accepting and taking rides is exceptional. You receive an automatic text for requests based on your availability and and you choose whether or not you take them. Presumably you'd take any ride that falls within your posted availability. You can always opt not to, but that is silly considering how easy it is to request off on their website (no two weeks notice is needed or any of that stuff.)Pay: This is not an Uber gig. You interact with clients, connecting with them before and during their appointment trip, though even that is not a strictly overseen requirement since it is a 1099. Individual trips pay well, especially if you live in a rural area, as they pay for the distance traveled to your pickup point outside of a certain range. You are informed of how much each trip will be BEFORE you even accept it. I have yet to decline a trip because the pay was not worth it. I often make $50-$120 before noon in a shift and enjoy the rest of my day.While it is not required, it is easy to find a flow in communication that ensure that clients continue requesting you as a driver. This is especially ideal for clients who have multiple scheduled appointments per week, which guarantees a predictable pay schedule if that is what you are looking for. Pay is organized and well - more...
Pros
Independence, reliable staff, pay, mission based.
Cons
Bidding model of insurance companies kind of yanks drivers' chains around a little.

I enjoy the work flexibility which I control. I would categorize pay as adequate, but I didn't join for financial freedom. Helping clients is the most rewarding aspect, particularly those requiring extra help. This is a supplemental job and work is sporadic, so understand this before committing. My interactions with management & administration have been pleasant and productive. They respond quickly to changing situations.
Pros
Helping people with needs beyond my own
Cons
Pay, but you know this going in.

This is a company that pays fairly well if you are retired an want some extra money. I feel safe with the fact that they keep a close watch on where you are. I have met some very nice people in my travels. Everyone at their office are very friendly if you call in for anything be it a problem or suggestion. I am not pressured to take a run if I dont want it when they ask. I would recommend this job to anyone that has extra time an enjoys helping people get to Dr. Appts.
Pros
Get extra pay on most jobs your waiting longer then an hour.
Cons
No benifets, no maintance for car except oil change discount at jiffy lube.

Boomerang Transport affords me the ability to work during my retirement, at my pace, on my schedule. Boomerang is also a very altruistic company donating to charitable organizations around the world. Boomerang is extremely customer service oriented which I like. They have high expections of their employees and their contractors. I would recommend that anyone looking for part time work with flexible scheduling look into working for Boomerang. If you are a people person and enjoy providing outstanding customer service and helping people, Boomerang is looking for you.
Pros
Work when I want. High level of customer service

I have worked as an Independent Contractor for Boomerang Transportation for the past two years and I love it. I like driving and being able to set my own schedule. I like meeting new people and feel that I'm providing an essential service. The only downside is that the pay could be better for some of the longer distances. I've never had any issues communicating with management, and I actually enjoy sending in the codes to the machine. I'm happy I found out about Boomerang Transportation and I would gladly refer them to others.
Pros
flexibility, ease of planning time off, ability to set own schedule
Cons
Some long distance rides could pay more, and sometimes passenger's appoints go over an hour or more past scheduled time.

I recently celebrated my 1st anniversary! I truly enjoy driving anyway so this opportunity is perfect for me!! I appreciate the flexibility the job affords along with the benefit of meeting some pretty amazing people. I love having consistent customers to transport; but, I also regularly receive new customers. I determine how often I wish to work and what rides I want to accept. I have looked at other transportation opportunities and worked for one other company. Because Boomerang operates through insurance companies, l know who I will be transporting, what my compensation will be, and the mileage and time involved is the best of "all" worlds. The other company offered none of that. I must admit; initially I thought this would be a short-term gig, but the sheer simplicity of the business to make money is fantastic.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
none at this time

The opportunity started great with two to three transports a week. I also had a nice day long transport that paid well. All of a sudden i started getting last minute cancellations. I submitted some new contract suggestions on the cancellations.. I have only gotten two poor jobs in the last two months.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
No work

It's job driving worker-comp patient to Doctor appointment. There is not enough hours to work full time in San Antonio. But it's okay if you drive for other gig companies, such as Uber.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Not enough gig

A great part time job while getting to meet and help people. You are able to work as many days as you want during the week. You are able to schedule in advance what days off you may need. I only thing that did not sit while was that you do not get paid for your mileage in cash. The long ride miles to add up and oil and tire changes do come up quicker.
Pros
Make your schedule
Cons
No Mileage Pay

Overall, it is a good company. Unfortunately, I have missed assignments because of difficulties Boomerang is experiencing with employees that subscribe to T-Mobile.

Driving for Boomerang is a perfect part time job for anyone retired that enjoys meeting people and driving. Hours are flexible and the employees are very helpful with any questions I have about a particular transport.

The company just ain't professional enough. Unprofessional. Too much negativity to quote about this company. They really needs professional improvements on how to handle situations when a person vehicle becomes inoperative before a scheduled trip. Some things are out of the control of drivers such as vehicle breakdowns.
