Love to drive your vehicle? There are plenty of options to make cash while you are doing it!

Whether you already have a full-time job or want to make some additional cash on the side, here are some excellent ways to transform your car into a machine that makes cash.

Drive With Uber

Need a pleasant, flexible approach to make extra money while meeting loads of fresh people as well?

Apply to drive with Uber.

Ridesharing demand has grown insanely, and it keeps getting busier. You must be at least 21 years of age with a year of driving experience, pass a background check and own a vehicle produced after 2007 or after.

We spoke to Beatrice Palmer, who had been driving with Uber for the past 6 months. Beatrice does not have a full-time job, but when she drives to work and back home, she turns on her Uber app and drives passengers to their destination earning $300 a week. On weeks where she drives full-time, she makes $800!

Best of all, she chooses her own hours and days.

Deliver Food

If you have free time on your hands, you can use Uber Eats to bring in some extra dough for delivering food.

Here is some more information:

  • Locations: Uber Eats is throughout the U.S.
  • Pay: Drivers are paid for the miles driven, a drop-off fee, as well as tips. Postmates takes a service fee from the pay. 
  • Schedule: Flexible
  • Requirements:
    • Be at least 19 years of age
    • You must have a vehicle made in 1997 or later, a bicycle, a scooter, or foot based on your area.
    • Pass a background check.
    • Have a valid driver’s permit and insurance (if a vehicle or scooter is delivered).

Get Paid to Test Drive Cars

Working through a business such as BestMark, you go to a car dealership and pose as a prospective buyer.

So you get a nice, fairly good vehicle to test drive and once you report back to BestMark on your experience, you are compensated for your expertise!

Carpool to Work

Did you know that some cities will pay you to carpool to work instead of driving your car? In order to help reduce traffic and pollution, these four cities will pay you:

In Washington D.C.’s metropolitan area, you can earn up to $2 per day over a period of 90-days, that’s up to $130 just driving to work! If you begin or join a fresh carpool.

In Birmingham, Alabama alone, drivers earn up to $70 over a 90 day period to take alternative transportation or carpooling.

Commuters living, working or traveling through San Mateo County, California, are offered a $50 retail or online store gift card when they begin or enter a fresh carpool.

People driving between Boulder and Denver, Colorado can earn up to $75 in carpooling or vanpooling gift cards from Amazon.

Put Ads on Your Car

Have you seen cars around the city with businesses painted on their cars? It can be an excellent source of revenue to let businesses show their advertisements on your vehicle while you just drive your ordinary routes every day.

You will have to ride frequently in high-traffic regions to qualify for these possibilities — companies do not want to pay someone that parks their car inside of a garage, especially when it is meant for an advertisement.

Rent Out Your Car

If you have a car that you don’t use during the week or weekends, consider renting it out.

There is an increasing number of car rental destinations, including Getaround. A cool thing about Getaround is when you’re at work, you can rent it out and have it returned before you head home. 

Getaround claims users that share their vehicle earn about $800 a month and up to $10,000 a year. Moreover, all vehicles are insured by the platform – up to $1 million each.
