Advertise on Your Car
Advertising on your car is a very easy way to make some money from your vehicle. In fact, you probably won’t even notice that you are using your car to advertise while you are driving. Companies will pay you to have your car wrapped in branding stickers or designs. The advertisements will be applied to your vehicle in an approved garage. If you are only getting a small advertisement installed then you can probably be back on the road within the hour.
The amount of money you can expect to earn will differ depending on a few factors. For example, you will be paid more if you opt to have larger advisement than a small, one-door ad. You will also earn more money if you live and drive in the right locations and spend a certain amount of time driving your car.
Rent out Your Car Parking Space
Depending on where you live you can make a lot of money by simply renting out your car parking space. This is especially handy for people who live in cities, or close to a train station, or if you live close to a major sports ground. If you drive to work each day your parking space is an empty piece of real estate that you might as well capitalize on. You can upload the details of your car parking space on websites such as JustPark, Parkonmydrive, Your Parking Space, or Gumtree.
Meals on Wheels
Signing up to work for the meals on wheels scheme is a great way to earn some extra money from your car while helping out in your local community. Meals on wheels is the service that delivers hot, nutritious meals to people who are unable to (or struggle to) prepare meals for themselves. You will need to have a good working knowledge of the local area to ensure that you are able to make deliveries quickly before the food gets cold.
