Hiring for evenings

I was wondering what you found most successful for night commercial jobs? We currently have enough work for almost full time for two employees (about 30 hours a week). They use our company car when they get here at 5pm. I just had someone part time (about 20 hours) and that turned out to be a bad idea, since in the meantime she got a full time job during the day and it became too much. Now I'm thinking should I have:

1. Several part timers (avg 10 hours a week) using their own cars? I don't like this idea too much, since it's a lot of equipment and supplies to give out and keys would be an issue, if they call out sick.
2. A full time Supervisor (5pm-1am?) + 1 (full time) or a few (part time) helpers?
3. ?

We do Monday to Friday right now on commercial. All employees are on W-2. One federal account that requires IDs so I have to have a steady crew there. I always liked the idea of less employees (less training and management) but I can also see advantage in part timers (can cover shifts easily, if needed).

Better if you can hire one supervisor and some helpers which works under that supervisor.How many employees you want it will depends upon you and your budget.If there are number of employees then proper management should also be there.
