WE all know that owning a car brings a big monthly bill.
But you could also be sitting on a goldmine.
From odd jobs to advertising, the team at MotorEasy.com reckons owners can boost their income by more than £2,000 a year, for less than 12 hours’ work a week.
Here are some ways your nice little runner could become a nice little earner.
BE A MOVING BILLBOARD
By signing up for services like adverttu.com, you can advertise brands on your car with vinyl stickers.
Earning varies according to your car, the ad type and where you drive/ park. But it’s worth a shot.
Potential: Up to £150 a month
RENT OUT YOUR DRIVEWAY
You can make money from your empty driveway if you don’t use it through companies like yourparkingspace.co.uk.
If you live in London, you could make as much as £216 a month.
If you own an electric vehicle you can also rent your personal charger, earning over £300 a month.
Potential: £79 a month
RENT YOUR CAR OUT
A new age of working from home means not everyone needs access to their car during working hours.
If you’re not always driving, rent it out through the likes of the app Hiyacar.
I use it lots as it’s basically Airbnb for vehicles and can be cheaper than a hire car firm, plus the pick up locations are usually convenient.
Potential: £590 a month
Delivering packages or flyers by car could boost your earnings.
From food deliveries to parcels, you can shift anything.
There are plenty of companies hiring at the moment but a starting place could be Amazon Flex or looking at the Yodel self-employed courier jobs.
Potential: £9-15 an hour
HIT THE BOOT SALE
The good old car boot sale is still a great way to put money in your pocket.
Items that tend to go well include trainers, perfume (even if it has been used a couple of times) and branded sportswear or big names like M&S and Next clothing.
