Nah wah o...

Nothing drivers eyes no go see finish for the biznez...

They called us many names, tagged us lazy and criminally minded individuals...

They rubbed bakery biznez and selling bobo and bigi coke on our face in the name of "side hustle"

Lemme not even start with problems we face with riders...

...and here is another person that wants to put us in uniforms...and chains.

I'm waiting for the smart investor that'll come and insert micro chip in our skull so as to manage us well...

Nonsense!

Scenario 2, driver earns an extra N650 and you -N650

Ask me how.

You can't ADD N1000 to yourself cos you took the N1000 from your pocket and not from the money earned to get to the driver


The truth is

I now see some losses from a dishonest driver.

No system is fool proof.

Don't blame me for my model


I can't invest 2.2 million and break even after 24 months

There has to be a way out.


What if I have my mechanic and auto part dealer.
Driver calls that theres a fault

I call my mechanic to go check it.

The mechanic tells me the part to be replaced.

I call my auto parts guy and send one of my bike men to go get the part. This bike man locates the mechanic and gets the old part and gives him the new part..


Too long abi grin

Its an organized business with division of labour grin

Besides, any business man who wants to make profit must be organized

Now the issue of fuel... undecided this will be difficult


As for toll gate.. That's easy

True, tho relative.

And

In Scenario 1, there is no dishonesty, NET is N10000.

Net can not be 10k

Revenue is 10200

Gross is 10000

Driver requested for 1k

Net becomes 10 minus 1

Meanwhile in the dishonest scenario the loss is 350

In scenario 2 if driver doesn't use the 1k. It means he has 11200 as cash.. He only gives me back my initial 1k and subtracts 200 as fuel

Thus making us share 10k instead of 9k.

The loss is 350. Although he might look like he has the full 1k but its 350 he gains

Phranex, you can't be "brainstorming" yet shitting on opinions.

A dishonest driver will earn more but so will you, tho smaller (% Measure).

Consider this:
Driver Requested N1000 to fix something and you provided it.

At day end, GROSS is N10,200
*** Hypothetically speaking, N200 covers fuel and other miscs.

Going by your model, that N1000 is further subtracted from the Gross which now leaves N9,000 as NET

Driver Earns 35%

Scenario 1 (No Dishonesty)
N10,000 NET
Driver gets 3500 and you 6500.

Scenario 2 (Dishonesty)
Driver doesn't use the N1000 he gets from you, thats an extra in his own pocket.
Going by the new NET of N9000, he gets his 35%, N3150 and you N5850.

Driver:
N3150 + the N1000 with him before = N4150

You:
N5850 + N1000 removed from gross (depending on how you look at it) = N6,850.

Summary:
In Scenario 1, everything worked out normal.
However, in Scenario 2, driver earns an extra N650 and you, N350.


In scenario 1

It is 35% of 9k

In scenario 2

Also 35% of 9k

I see a loss of 650 tho undecided

Hmmm now I get, the proposal is not even about his first claim, putting drivers on 35% at the end of the month.. Its about comparing bikes remittance to car...this guy smart gan but u can't really outsmart everyone here...you actually want to convince investors about your bike biz which I know your moving towards it gradually.. Guy u try...but you are still a learner
[ author=Tgiirl post=71434817]. But can be stolen at once. How do u track it. because the last guy I bought a bike for on my farm to use is nowhere to b found till date.

Aside that, you don't even ve a car on the platform yet. Nawa o. How come you know wat works and wat wont work.

I can see the true pic now, you want investors to invest in bikes, right?
And you can help them to manage it , right?


Ko le werk.... No one is ready to be scammed.

Well, u may be lucky to see some sending you pchat to know about your bike biz... See your tactics bad gan. Those who know, knows

Nah.. Not convincing anyone..

The bike business is risky. A new govt might ban bikes in Lagos.

I honestly want to have a fleet of cars on uber but the current model is discouraging. And so I will formulate a new model for myself. By January, I will but a corolla and an android phone to test my model.

The people who ride my bikes are aboki


The person who will drive my car will be a driver not a graduate who couldn't get a job but resorted to driving on uber (no offense intended). The latter is greedy and wants to build a mansion off another's property while the former drives as a profession.

You lose, Brutality!
If driver lies he gets 2100 from you + 1000 he gained from lying, that's 3100 compared to 2450 if he tells you the truth.
Now you See the level of your smartness? Common driver outsmarted you grin grin grin grin

And while trying to be smart you also feel everybody here is a driver except u, you've not even bought one car and you've called people with fleet of cars drivers because they tried to correct you, not so smart afterall cheesy cheesy

Your mathematics is flawed.

That 1k was deducted from the total earnings as expenses.

He said 4k for fuel.. Total earnings is 10k

He actually bought 3k.. So he kept 1k abi..

When we want to share the 10..

We minus 4k which the actual 3k for fuel plus the 1k with him as expenses.

We now share 6k... He didn't cheat me.. He played a fast one on himself. If he likes he says the bought fuel for 7k whereas he bought fuel of 1k.. Remember he is buying fuel from my money... He has to pay the amount he used to buy fuel before we share profit.

10 minus 7 is 3

Is 3k we will share... He might have 6k with him but he gave me back the 6k as expenses.. Lol.. Not so smart after all....

Your 10 bikes can carry minimum of 10 riders at once and 20 at most per trip

While

1 car can carry minimum of 1 rider at ones and 4 riders at most per trip.

Common sense;
you cant compare 10 bikes to 1 car.

1 bike can never earn as much as a car,
Comfort differs greatly.

You are missing the point


10 bikes earns me 105 weekly

1 car earns 35 weekly

Cost of 10 bikes equals cost of 1 car.

If you are smart, u will know what to invest in

Meanwhile, anything happens to the car and the income stops for that week.

The 10 bikes can not go bad all at once.

In the quest of bin smart, you will be outsmarted. I can give u a 100% guarantee on that because the system in which you want to embark on does not favor an investor.

Everyone can't be wrong at the same time, some have given u experiences they had and believe me u won't appreciate this advice until u get burnt by decisions you think were smart.
(Your thought, why should a driver earn more than an investor, whatever he makes he should get a certain percentage as commission)
Phranex, do you know what motivate drivers? that feeling of bin the boss is what does, that feeling of I must earn more than my investor is part of what motivates them. In this time and era, no one wants to be a slave for a long time especially those who know their onions and self worth.

On pen and paper the investor is the boss but in reality, the driver is (as long as ehailing is concerned).


I wish u good luck.





If u were an investor.. Your narrative will be different.

I had 2.2 million and wanted to buy a car just for uber.

I enquired about the biz.. I was told drivers remit 35k weekly..

I did some calculations and wasn't happy with the model.

I invested the 2.2 in bikes.. Bought 10 bikes at 218 each....

The 10 bikes earned me 70k weekly at 1k daily on the mainland.

I took 5bikes to lekki

5 bikes in lekki earns me 70k weekly at 2k daily
5 bikes on mainland earns me 35k weekly at 1k daily

Cumulatively, I earn 105k weekly.

If I had bought a car, I would be crying now...

I want to revisit uber business. This is why I am asking these questions..


My bikes have the capacity to buy a car for uber...

Now you tell me, shouldn't uber bring more money for an investor than a common bike

I have been following your post here but practically u will be at the losing end. If a driver buy 3k fuel and tells u 4k. That 1k gone out of the net profit u are suppose to share. He just stole ur 650naira so easily. If he steals 1k from u daily for seven days thats 4550 he stole. Money dsts suppose to add up to the net profit.

U said u camt delete call logs, thats very funny. You can delete call logs my brother. U dont need to clear all.

If ur driver calls u and said the car got spoilt somewhere how do u want to know if its true? The best u will tell him is to look for a mechanic to quickly repair it.. My brother, ur driver might ne inside coldstone livking ice cream while waitimg for u to send like 4k to repair wetin no dey. And even if it got spoilt and needs and mechanic tells him 3500 and he told u 5k, wat can u do about that? Even if u av a specific mechanic will ur mechanic ne with the driver 24/7 ??

Offline trips is another thing ooo. Some old drivers have long list of offline customers, and ders little u can do to monitor d car even with tracker cos on e hailling ders no specific route. All way na way unlike transport companies that have specific routes so tracking can be done.

Oga mi, u will end up losing big time






Let's say driver buy fuel 3k but tells me 4k


At the end of the he makes 10k (bad day)
10 -4 =6

The driver and I will share 6k .. He gets 2100 (35%)

He tells me the truth

10 - 3 = 7

The driver and I share 7k.. He gets 2450

Who loses if he lies, tell me?

Remember all expenses comes back to the investor as running costs... So from the 10k, the investor has expenses plus 65% of net profit


The driver loses if he lies....

If he tells me he spent xyz for repairs.. Whatever he earns , that xyz amount will be first deducted before we share the profit

E.g

He calls that the car broke down and mechanic needs 5k . I will transfer 5k to him.. He made 10k at the end of the day... What we will share as profit is 5k.. The 5k I sent will have to be deducted from the 10k...


This model is fool proof...

I will have to do some further permutations to be doubly sure tho

Phranex,

I understand your point of view but trust me, looking for ways to break-even within a short period of time isn't feasible regardless of the way u deem it fit.
With your analogy, you will end up shooting yourself.
There is no way you can checkmate or tick all boxes, ehailing favors car owners who drives on the platform and the driver to an extent, but for an investor, you get to be patient and the patience I am talking about isnt going to run for a year but two or more.

Talking about bin incharge of fuelling the vehicle, how would u feel when your driver calls u every now and then for fuel,
Let's say he is on a trip and fuel gets to reserve, he tops up with 3k and tells u he bought 4k fuel, how do u checkmate that, ohhhh I guess, u will also request for invoice, invoice can also be doctored.
You recharge his line with 500 naira airtime, a certain fraction of the airtime is used to call his chick, friends or whosoever comes to mind... He runs out of airtime, he calls u and then u load it up for me, trust me, it's gonna be tiring.

Experience they say is the best teacher, forget all the permutations you have done to recover cost and make profit, face the reality on the ground.

Lol... You know most transport coys have a specific filling station they buy fuel from?

Besides if he buys 3k and tell me 4k... Its my gain cos 4k will be subtracted from earnings.

You also know that phones keep calls log and you can't delete one . the best u can do is delete all

I know it will be a difficult process but it profits means anything to an investor, he would devote a full to study these things


The model is done in such a way that if the driver overshoots the expenses.. He loses big time as the expenditure will be deducted before he starts earning... If he under shoots, the driver and the owner both share the in it..

The model protects the car owner fully and as well rewards the driver.. The current model favours only the driver..

You need to 'kam' down. Most of the people replying you are car owners, they know where it pinches. If drivers were to reply you, insults will be your name. You sound like a nerd, but note that book sense is not street sense. YOUR MODEL WILL NOT WORK.

Lean here, at least start from page 500 and study. Alternatively, drive for a week!
Drivers don't just drive, they plan, they position well, they study trends and zones to make even. Your model of established transport companies won't work.

I pity the pastor and poor church brother that will take up your offer. In fact labelling people greedy reeks of crass ignorance. I've driven before and I've stopped.....my own car for that matter.

The real question is why did u stop?
If a driver is supposed to remit 35k to a car owner. What happens when he is unable to do that for a week...

The problem I have with this model is that drivers don't maintain the car and they take a larger chunk of the cars earnings

And on the other hand, u ve made ur cool cash and time for stories.

The truth be say, you re looking for those to use and dump cos u always know that model won't work. Good luck in your world of extortion

You are misunderstanding me.

The supposed salary is commission based.. You want to earn more money monthly... Bring more to the sharing table... What this therefore means is that my drivers will earn different wages on the same month. This is the model that fits the uber business

Believing me with my model. We both suffer losses and gain together .

In your current model... Only the car owner suffers.

9k is a bad day for u.. 3 bad days make up almost 30k to give to the car owner... While 4 more day earnings on a BAD day belongs to u.

Yet if the car goes bad.. U want him to repair from the 3 bad days u give to him

Bros, you need to get more understanding about the 'business'.
There are many factors you need to consider e.g offline trips (like someone pointed out), lazy drivers can make you get less than the 120k monthly you could get with weekly remittance.
Also respect people here, stop calling every driver a thief.
Finally, when you are sure of your model, please go ahead. There are different ways of doing a business, nobody here will force you not to do it your own way. All the best!
