I'll tell you how much I trust this Prakesh...I recently did some contract work that sent me deep into the industrial area in the evenings for 4 visits. After the first visit, even though I have driven to the location several times and I am happy to drive my JEEP, I insisted that the company pay for Prakesh to take me and pick me up. He was happy to walk me up to the door and carry my things (3 flights of stairs) and 3 hours later he would come back for me and he would call and let me know he was outside but walk up the stairs and collect me. He did charge a bit more to go out to the industrial area but the rates are the same as Fox because the company called to compare. I insisted on Prakesh because after dark in the industrial area is pretty scary, knowing I was the only female for probably a few square miles.
I wouldn't say him or any of the others are chatty. I sometimes engage them just because I see them regularly.
I think they work on a "commission only" type basis as in I think they only get paid for the fares they take not hourly. So I imagine this makes them more conscientious of the service they are providing.
My first experience with the company was when we had to go and pick up a box from QA Cargo (NIGHTMARE) the driver called Abi was so kind that he drove us to the shipper office, then they said they needed cash so he drove us to the atm, then he drove us back to the shipper office, then he drove us to QA Cargo and waited. He told us to call him when we were done, he then came back for us and took us home...he could have really fleeced us - as we were new and been fleeced by Karwa plenty of times, but I think he only charged us 70 - we of coursed tipped him but from that point on we only called him. When I needed a "perm" driver for the work run, he was busy so he referred me to Prakesh
