Make Money Using Your Car

Have you been looking for a way to make decent extra money, on your own time? Your personal vehicle is the answer to your prayers. I have been a ride share driver for the past year, and thoroughly enjoy it! I love meeting new people every day.

As long as you keep your car clean, can pass a background check, have a valid driver’s license and good driving record, you can most likely drive for a ride-share company.

There is no minimum amount of hours you have to work, and you just go “online” and “offline” whenever you want.

They both also have a “destination filter” that can be used twice a day. This feature allows the driver to pick someone up going in your general direction, so that you get paid for as many miles as possible (example: earn money while driving to/from your regular job).

Both companies have programs to help you either buy or rent a car (if you are in a city where this feature is offered).

Driving during big local events is when you will make the most money, due to surge pricing. There is definitely a strategy to making decent money from ride-sharing. If you decide to be a ride share driver, send me an email and I will help you master the system!

Requirements: Be at least 21 years of age, have at least one year of driving experience in the U.S. (3 years if you are under 23 years old), use an eligible 4-door vehicle, and own a smartphone.

  1. I know a lot of people who enjoy driving for Uber/Lyft but if we’re being honest you don’t want me being your driver hahah I don’t pride myself on being a great driver and I really drive a little as I possibly can.

  2. I almost signed up with Uber but never did it. I live in a somewhat rural area and didn’t know if it would really be worthwhile.

    1. It’s definitely not something to make a full living off of, but can absolutely be extra money! If you live close to a city where there are concerts or sports events etc, you could just drive for those events and get paid the surge pricing 🙂 there’s a lot of ways to make it work!!
