A driveaway driver is a person who is paid to drive a car between two locations. Drivers are given a tank of gas, an acceptable amount of miles to drive and a set number of days to complete the trip.
There are multiple reasons a person or company may hire a driveaway driver. The most common reason is to move cars between corporate fleets or car rental companies. People ordering cars online often use a driveaway service to have the car moved from the seller's location to the buyer's home. Driveaway drivers sometimes also transport materials instead of just a vehicle.
