Frequently Asked Questions
What is CarBucks?
We are a transit advertising company headquartered in Western Cape, South Africa which services markets nationwide. As a new communication channel, we specialize in getting a brand’s message seen in geographies of interest through the means of car wrap advertising applied on everyday driver’s cars.
Do I have to pay anything to get started?
No. This service is free to join and always will be.
What are the qualifications to become a driver?
– Drive at least 100km / day.
– Have a clean driving record.
– Own a 2008 model car or newer.
– Factory finish paint job.
When can I start?
This is completely dependent upon our partnering advertisers and when & where they are looking to run campaigns. As soon as there is a potential match between your driving profile and an interested brand, we will be in touch with you through email. Filling out an application does not guarantee that you will be in a campaign.
How much money will I make?
Our standard payment rate is R1000/month. Sometimes there are more specialized campaigns that can pay up to R1500 / month but this is not common. We also offer drivers the ability to make additional passive income through parking their cars in certain places at certain times. Our going pay rate for this is typically R2000/hour.
Do I get to pick what brand goes on my car?
Typically, you don’t have many options for what brand wants to put their message on your car. You are reached out to once we are working with a brand that likes your driving profile, and you are then asked as to whether you would like to participate in the campaign or not. Note, that even after you fill out the driver application, you are never obliged to participate in any campaign unless you want to.
When and how do I get paid?
All drivers in our campaigns get paid at the beginning of each month through direct deposit. If your car gets wrapped between the 1st – 15th of the month, then you will get paid at the beginning of the very next month. If your car gets wrapped between the 16th – end of month, then you will get paid at the beginning of the subsequent month.
Would I be considered an independent contractor or employee?
Independent contractor. None of our drivers are considered employees of Carvertise nor our partnered advertiser.
What are the wraps made out of?
The car wraps are essentially oversized stickers that are made specifically for cars. The adhesive is compatible with a car’s paint job – it comes off very clean and actually protects your car’s paint.
What parts of the car will be wrapped?
If the campaign is a partial wrap, then all 4 doors and back of the car will be wrapped (the back window is a transparent perforated decal) (refer to wrapping process for images). If the campaign is a full-wrap, the entire car will be wrapped with the exception of the front window and the side front windows.
How long does my car stay wrapped in advertising?
It depends upon the length of the campaign, but it can be anywhere from 3 months to 6 months.
