7 Ways to Get Paid to Drive Using Your Car
Get paid to drive as a delivery driver.
Most restaurants deliver, right? And while that can be a great gig to have to supplement your income, think bigger. Now, even more stores are getting into the delivery game. Grocery stores are having groceries delivered, floral shops have flowers delivered, and even coffee shops are getting in on the game, too. If you have a car that you aren’t using all the time, why not see if you can’t work for a few locations in town and use your car to make their deliveries? Better yet, present your idea to a business that doesn’t have a delivery option. You could help them out by offering a service that they hadn’t even thought of, increasing their profits and potential customer base. Here are some companies that will help you get paid to drive.
- Uber Eats– Deliver food from local restaurants working whenever you want to work

Get paid to drive people to and from the airport
Think of yourself as a shuttle. People can contact you and pay you to drive them to the airport, or pick them up from the airport when they arrive. It not only saves them from the hassle of having to rent a car, it makes it more convenient as well to be able to get right in your vehicle when they exit the plane. This is more of a business and you will need to research your state requirements as far as a business license, what is needed for a chauffeur’s license, find our if you need to make changes to your car insurance, and find ways to market your business.
Advertise local businesses on your car.
Have you ever heard of a car wrap? Some companies will pay people who have vehicles to display an advertisement for their business on their car. They compensate them for driving around and having that advertisement in view for others to see. While it may not pay a ton of money, it still pays and could be a great supplemental addition to your wallet. Reach out to local companies to see if any of them would be interested in such a partnership! This is one area you need to be careful in as far as there being a lot of scams out there. If the company tells you they will be sending you a cashier’s check where you are to keep a portion of the money and then wire the rest to the person who will be installing your wrap then guess what? It is a scam. The check eventually bounces and you are out the amount of money you sent. Also remember to never send any money or pay any fees up front. The company I usually recommend is Carvertise.
Are you an early bird that likes to be busy? Why not contact your local newspaper and see if they have any delivery routes that are open in your town? Local newspaper routes are a great way to be able to use your car to start earning money immediately. Some routes that are established also offer the opportunity to earn some great tips too come holiday time if you are prompt with the service and delivery of their paper!
Car sharing basically means renting out your car to others when you don’t need it. You create a free listing giving details about your car and ome photos of your car. List dates your car is available and you will get notified when someone requests your car and can respond by confirming or declining. Coordinate where and when you will meet the client to drop off the car and to pick it up when you are done. How much money you can make depends on the value of your car and how often it is available. Here are some companies that will do this.
