Here is a quick guide to five of the most in demand businesses that you can start with a vehicle. It will still take a lot of hard work and dedication, but very quickly you can become your own boss, and work for yourself and choose your own hours.
Work as a Taxi or Uber Driver
Working as a taxi driver can be very profitable, especially if you live in a large city with an airport and people visiting for business or tourism.
Services like Uber and Lyft have become very popular in the last few years, and working for one of these companies is a great way to start a business with a vehicle.
Operate a Recovery Vehicle
Recovery vehicles are always in high demand to help rescue stranded vehicles that have broken down, or help the emergency services clear the roads of vehicles after an accident.
You don’t need to have mechanical experience, just a large recovery truck with the right equipment to help you get the job done safely. You can buy things like light bars and hydraulic lifts from companies like RVL. The vehicles can be expensive, but they are a great investment that pay for themselves very quickly.
Be a Man with a Van
If you have a large vehicle like a van, or the means to buy one, then starting a ‘man with a van’ service is a very profitable way to start your own business.
Every day, thousands of people find themselves looking for a man with a van to help them move house, and businesses often need help transporting large goods or orders to their customers. If you offer a reliable and helpful service, word will soon get around, and you will find yourself with more clients than you can handle.
Transport Medical Supplies for Hospitals Services
