Offer a Delivery Service

Besides transporting people with Uber you can use your vehicle to make extra cash by offering a delivery service. There are a few different ways you can do this depending on what you are looking for and what vehicle you have.

The most straightforward way is to sign up working for a company that offers a delivery service. This could be either employed or self employed. If you were to deliver for a company that paid you an hourly rate this would essentially be working a job and they may or may not supply you with a vehicle. Some examples of employed driver jobs would be driving a HGV, delivering for Royal Mail, UPS, Pizza Hut, Domino’s, supermarkets etc

Alternatively you could sign up with a company such as Just Eat, Deliveroo or Yodel where you will be self employed and you can choose your own hours to work. This “gig economy” where  you are paid depending on the amount of deliveries you make is relatively new but growing quickly as it allows people to work their own hours. For the fast food delivery services you can use a motorbike, scooter, push bike, car or van and will be delivering food from takeaways and restaurants to customers. With Yodel you will need a car or van to deliver parcels

Finally, you can do it completely by yourself if you have a van or even large car by advertising your delivery service with a free site such as this and build your own client base, or locally on sites such as Gumtree or Craigslist etc.

These are by no means and exhaustive list of all companies available but it gives you an idea of the opportunities available to you if you wanted to make cash by offering a delivery service. You can use a single way that is mentioned above or sign up to several sites offering your delivery services. The larger the vehicle you have at your disposal, the more items you will be able to offer to deliver and therefore make more money.
