    Does anybody use scooters for delivery? Also, is there any benefit to using company cars for delivery?

    THANKS!

    1. You can hire people who do not own cars as drivers. (Very important to me)
    2. You know the car is insured, maintained and safe.
    3. Employees can't call in and say they can't work because the car is in the shop.
    4. Somewhat less expensive than paying mileage for us.

    Some times of the year here, a snowmobile may be more useful than a scooter. I am guessing the same goes for Bodegahwy too....

    I would be very concerned about workers comp. liability with an employee on a scooter, but I have not researched those costs and concerns.
