When it’s critical you can’t afford the risk.
Safeway does not use independent contractors to provide service to our clients. Independent contractors may not always maintain their vehicles, have the right equipment or carry workers compensation. This leaves the door open for service failures, breakdowns and the risk for an on the job injury that the contractor may not have coverage for.
This method of providing service is the business model of most of our competitors. When shopping for a critical delivery provider, look for companies that use employee drivers, company vehicles and are fully insured.
