We know that cars are expensive to keep and own nowadays, but for most of us – it is something that we can’t do without. And with money being tight in general thanks to rocketing prices – wouldn’t it be cool to make some money from your car – especially if you are already using it a lot?
Here are a couple of cool ways to make money from your car.
Get your car wrapped up in a pretty branded decal. You can reach out to local companies to see if they would be interested in placing a decal, or you can have a vehicle livery created for your own business. A car wrap doesn’t have to cover the whole car – there can be a small flash here and there. They are pretty effective, too – because when you’re sitting in traffic, people are often looking at the cars around them.
Ding Dong Delivery!
If you just really enjoy driving and don’t mind that your car might smell of other people’s food, then this one might be for you! Food deliveries are another trendy choice – probably better for night owls, and those who don’t mind their car smelling a little like the food you’ve been delivering all night.
Just Eat, Deliveroo, and Uber Eats are the top contenders for making this easy. You can sign up for more than one and work the hours that suit you – even a few hours a week can pay a nice side income – and what’s more is that you could potentially get some tips, too!
From Here To There
Think about becoming a taxi or Uber driver – you can create your own hours, you have set pay rates, and if you fancy it you can have plenty of conversations, too. It is good to remember that some of the highest-ranked UBER and Lyft drivers have high ranks because they don’t talk! So you’ll have to judge this on a person-by-person case.
Depending on your personality and the location you are in, you might be in a position to help people with their weekly errands. With an ageing population, people who don’t have good mobility, and other factors – you can make some money while helping people out too.
It is a good idea to pick one day a week to run the errands so that you aren’t paying an excessive amount for petrol.
Perhaps the idea of loading your car with food or people isn’t something that you want to do – but deliveries might be ideal for you. There are many different delivery companies available now, and there are peak seasons – like Christmas. Amazon Flex is an option for many starter delivery drivers – and most of the time, you can start earlier in the day and finish early, too. But it will depend on the company you work for and your agreement. Many people do deliveries as a side hustle on the weekends to make the most from their car.
