How To Make Money With A Truck? (6 Ways You Never Thought Of Before)

Got a truck and looking for ways to make money with it? 

If yes, then you have come to the right post.

In this digital era, there are different apps to make money with your tuck.

I personally know people who are making anywhere from $600 to $1500 per month with their truck.

And you know what?

All the money was made on the side while focusing on their primary business.

It looked fascinating, and I asked him for more information on how he was able to make money with his truck.

He blew my mind with very creative ideas like scooter charging, which is the first idea that I have covered in this article.

Below are the six ways to make money with a truck.

Scooter Charging


This is an excellent trending opportunity to make $20,000 per month just using your truck to carry and charge scooters.

All you need to do is download an app called “JUMP by Uber.”

Once you have downloaded the app, you can sign up to charge scooters and start your work.

Everything is simple and straight forward here.

Using the app, locate the scooter that needs to be charged. Then drive your truck to the location, unlock using the app and pick it up.

Now, go to the next location and pick another one.

Repeat the same process and pick anywhere from 10 to 20 scooters.

Pro tip: Do this at night, so people are not looking to use scooters and drop them back early morning. This is the way you can make big money with your truck.

Scrap Metals Hauling


Not all the hauling is profitable.

Of course, you can make some money by hauling, but it’s best to focus on items that can make you good money.

All you need to do is pay someone on and ask them to submit your business on Google and Yelp.

By doing this whenever someone looks for scrap metal hauling in your area, your service is shown to them.

This is the most simple and effective way to acquire clients for your truck hauling business.

Once you get a couple of clients, then you can get more connections by word of mouth, and this can turn into a good business.

Remember, you are still going to get new customers through Google and other search engines.

So, don’t keep your truck idle, start making money with your truck.

Do Moving Services


If you are planning to do this as a fulltime business, then moving services is the go-to option.

People have 3 to 4 pickup trucks and make a fulltime income with this business model.

You can do run this business with one of the below models:

Joining an established company:

Similar to Uber where you enter the company and whenever there is a ride you make money and share the revenue with UBERThe exact same model is available with Truck business as well.

Just Google and find the companies in your location and join them.

Doing it on your own: Here you will need to find clients and post some ads in craigslist (similar websites)

You can also use the Fiverr strategy that I mentioned in the other method if you are just starting with doing the moving services, I recommend you join a company and learn the whole business model.

Because this involves heavy physical labor and when you land big clients you will have to hire workers.

Once you learned the business, you can slowly start something on your own and eventually run your own company.

When you get lots of clients, you can help other Truck owners.

This is how you can scale your business and make huge money with your truck.

If you just want to do it on the side, it’s completely fine. Just find a good company to partner with, you should be good.

Advertise On Your Truck


If you are willing to trade the looks of your truck to make money, then continue reading.

I wouldn’t mind and definitely do this!

As this can become a passive income since you are not doing any regular work.

Also, this is the simplest way to monetize your truck.

One problem with this method is finding the right advertising companies.

There are many scam companies out there that do not pay on time or sometimes never pay.

You shall try Wrapify or Carvertise.

I heard a lot of positive reviews about them but do your research before joining any company.

Snow Ploughing


My brother in law lives in Boston, and I know that he is taking this service.

Especially post December, there is a massive demand for this service since it starts to snow heavily.

If you are living in a heavy snowfall area, then it can make you good money.

The drawback is that it is seasonal, and if you are just relying on this method alone, you won’t be able to make a good income using your truck.

Combine this with the other strategies, you will be able to make a lot of money.

One last information about this method:

This will require you to invest in the equipment for snow plowing.

But do not worry, I have an idea.

Rent equipment for a month and see if you can successfully run and make a profit in your area.

If yes, then go ahead and invest in buying equipment.

This will definitely make you back the money along with some nice profit.

Deliveries and Pick Up Services 


It is not 2010 where you need to look for delivery service opportunities.

Now there are lots of companies that outsource delivery services so they can focus on the quality of their product.

Here is where you, as a Truck owner, fill the gap and make money.

Check out the below list of companies you can join:


If you are living in the U.S. or Canada, you can join Doordash.

On average, you can make around $10 to $12 per hour, which is not great, but if it is extra cash, why not?

That is an average value because Doordash pays per delivery which s good.

You do not have any commitment, just do when you have time.

There are some eligibility criteria to join.

You can check them on their official website.

Amazon Flex Pay

Yes, you can make money with Amazon.

Now Amazon has expanded its business into different sectors, and you can do delivery services by joining Amazon Flex.

You can pick up and deliver items form Amazon Fresh as those goods will be in large and only Trucks can carry them.

The drawback is there are a smaller number of trucks required for this job as

Trucks are just needed to transport to a common point.

From there, smaller vehicles take care of distribution.

So, if you are planning to do this, join, do now without wasting any time.

These are the top 7 methods that I would personally recommend to make money with your truck.
