Did you know that you can make money with your car? That’s right! Every day, people just like you are earning extra money or even a full time salary with their car. If you have a car, driver’s license, and an insurance policy that is paid, you can earn extra money with your car, or even use your vehicle as a means to earn a fulltime salary.
There are many ways to earn money with your car. Some of them can be done all by yourself, while others may require you to be either be an employee of the company, or sign up as an independent contractor with a company. All of these options have varying levels of pros and cons.
What does it mean to be an independent contractor?
If you are an independent contractor, you essentially work for yourself. You are not an employee of the company. Since you are not an employee, you would not be entitled to receive traditional employee benefits such as health insurance, maternity leave, paid time off, sick leave, or a pension.
Independent contractors have to supply their own equipment and vehicles to complete the work required. For instance, if you are an independent contractor making money with your vehicle, you would be responsible for supplying the vehicle, paying for the fuel to rent vehicle, paying for all of the maintenance costs of the vehicle, and paying for the insurance coverage of the vehicle. Anything that happens with the vehicle is entirely your responsibility.
What is the difference between being an independent contractor and an employee?
An employee of a company who is given the privilege of using a company vehicle is different than an independent contractor. As an employee who is using a company vehicle to perform work, you would not be responsible for supplying the vehicle, paying for the fuel, paying for the maintenance of the vehicle, or paying for the insurance to cover the vehicle should an accident occur.
Making money with your car as an independent contractor
There are many ways that you can make money with your car without being an employee. Here are some of them for you to consider.
Become an Uber or Lyft driver
Uber and Lyft are both companies that hire independent contractors. As an independent contractor for Uber or Lyft, you would provide transportation services to customers of Uber or Lyft. The benefits of being a driver for Uber or Lyft are that you work your own hours.
You would only have to provide transportation for customers during hours that you feel comfortable doing so. This makes the job attractive for those who are looking for extra income, but who do not like or cannot work a fulltime or part-time job with regular hours.
Offer mobile advertising
There are many companies who will pay you to advertise with your vehicle. These companies will provide you with a monthly stipend in exchange for displaying their company advertisement on your vehicle.
The company will require you to display their advertisement as you drive, while you are parked in public places, and possibly while you are parked at your own residence. This is a form of passive income that requires no effort on your part beyond applying a magnetic advertising banner on your vehicle.
Driving a vehicle can be a lucrative source of additional income if you are either willing to provide transportation to others, or offer your vehicle as a means of advertisement for companies.
