Towing Services

Pickup trucks, straight trucks, and cargo vans are naturally strong vehicles for towing heavy objects. So, another great side hustle for truck and van owners is to provide a towing service for those who need it. 

You can find numerous individuals and small businesses who require towing assistance, ranging from apartment complexes to auto repair shops. For example, many people park their car in wrong places or encounter problems with their vehicle on the road. Local businesses can refer to you as a trustworthy and reliable towing service, earning you extra money when those situations arise. 

You may need to check with local businesses and do a bit of marketing for your towing service by calling and passing out business cards. In time, you should be able to gather several nearby clients and companies that pay for your towing services.

Rent Out Your Truck or Van

An excellent source of passive income is to simply rent your truck or cargo van out to others. This is a business opportunity that can earn you money without even having to use your truck or van yourself. 

Several car sharing companies like Getaround and Turo offer a platform for truck and cargo van owners to rent out their vehicle to drivers in exchange for payment. On average, you can earn around $500 a month by renting out your truck or cargo van through Turo. Instead of letting your truck or van depreciate in value while it sits in your garage, put it to good use by having it work for you. 

Ad Wrapping Campaigns

Trucks and cargo vans aren’t your ordinary vehicles; they stand out from the pack. Certain advertisers are constantly looking for ways to promote their products, and a moving truck or van on the road is a perfect solution for that. 

Ad wrapping your pickup truck or cargo van through ad wrap companies like Wrapify or Carvertise is simple and easy. There’s not much effort needed to be done on your end, and you can expect to get paid up to $452 a month. Generally, an ad wrapping campaign requires you to meet a certain driving distance quota each month to maintain a stream of extra income. 

Acting as a mobile billboard is a perfect side hustle for those looking for a stress-free way to earn extra money. Plus, you can feel safe knowing that the wrap is totally removable and stain-resistant after your ad wrap contract is finished.
