Posted: Friday, March 29th, 2019

If you’re like most of us, you’re always on the lookout for a side hustle that can help make ends meet or give you a little extra cushion at the end of the month. There are plenty of opportunities out there but, especially if you have a pickup and are willing to use it. Below are a few of our favorite ways to use a truck to make money. See if any will work for you and if you have any questions on how to get a short-term loan to help you pay the bills, check out our FAQs.

Haul for Hire

Unlike an SUV, trucks are designed to haul big, heavy items. You can capitalize on this design by hiring yourself out to folks who need help moving, hauling items to the landfill, and even picking up and recycling scrap materials yourself.

Deliver Goods

Local businesses can’t always afford to have a permanent delivery fleet on standby. Setting yourself up as a contractor who can act as a delivery person can put some cash in your pocket and provide a service that local businesses can really use.

Tow & Haul

Tiny houses are all the rage and take many forms, from large purpose-built structures to small renovated camp trailers designed for one. They’re wonderful for house-hunters on a budget, but hard to transport without a truck. Capitalize on this by offering your services as a trailer mover.

You can also set yourself up to help tow vehicles in a jam. Professional tow trucks can be expensive, but if you have a full-sized truck, tow straps, and knowledge, you can help tow motorists for far less than the pros, saving them big and helping you earn at the same time.


If your commute takes you along busy roadways or into densely populated parts of the city, you might be able to rent advertising space on your vehicle. Allowing a company to decorate your car with its information provides them with extra exposure and you with additional cash.
