You may be looking for a way to make some extra cash this winter. However, you don’t have to take a second job at the mall. There may be more ways to make money that you haven’t even considered before. If you own a decent sized pick-up truck, you should also be considering different ways you can use your truck to pick-up some extra money. You may be surprised at just how much money you could make.
Deliver Christmas Trees
There’s one thing a pick-up truck is made for. It’s to haul and transport heavy items. That truck bed was not made just for show. You should be taking full advantage of it. One way to do so is to use it to make money hauling and transporting goods for paying customers. During the winter, you have plenty of options. For example, you could offer your services to a local Christmas tree farm. Not everyone who wants a real Christmas tree has the vehicle to transport one home with them. You’ll find plenty of business in the month of December for certain.
Another great benefit of having a pick-up truck is that it will have four wheel drive and a lot of horse power. This makes it safer to drive on snow than a lot of other vehicles. You, of course, can take full advantage of this. Invest in a snow plow and other snow removal equipment for your truck. You’ll be able to make a lot of money making snow covered roads safe to drive on again. You’ll certainly find work with people that live on roadways in more rural and remote areas. You may even get hired by the local government to help clear the roads after significant snowfalls. Contact the HOA administrators of apartment complexes and housing units in your area. Many are looking for snow plows to clear pathways as part of their agreements with tenants.
Advertise on Your Truck
A third possibility you may have never even imagined before is using your truck as a moving billboard. There are, in fact, companies on the internet that will pay you to advertise different products and services on your truck. It’s easier than you may imagine. All you have to do is install a vinyl wrap on your truck that is printed with the advertising. When you are no longer running that specific ad for money, you can simply remove the vinyl wrap with no damage done your truck. In fact, the wrap may help protect it from the elements.
Overall, there are many ways to make money and certainly many ways to use a pick-up truck to create income. If you are looking for some extra income this winter, think of different ways you can use your truck for that end. You may end up starting a successful small business. There are many possibilities.
