Top 7 Ways To Make Money With Your Car In NigeriaParizzo Webmaster
Do you have a car? Why not put it to use and make extra money from it. After all, some people are willing to pay you in exchange for your car services.
If you are a car owner in Lagos or Nigeria who has been thinking of different side hustles to engage in, we’ve specially curated the top seven, legitimate ways using your car can fetch you extra money.
Please note that the options you pick depend on certain variables such as your location, the age and condition of your car, personal preferences, nearness to business districts, etc.
1. Become a ridesharer on Parizzo
Ridesharing is one of the easiest, hassle-free and simplest ways to make money with your car. All you have to do is download the Parizzo Car Owner App, sign up on the platform and offer your vacant car seats to verified passengers going your way.
You seamlessly get paid 80% of the trip cost and you can easily withdraw your funds from the wallet in your app immediately. It’s that easy. While there are buses, taxis, tricycles and motorcycles to take people from point A to B, some passengers prefer to use Parizzo because of the comfort and the privacy it affords.
2. Child Pick-up Services
Not every parent wants their children picked up from school by their contracted tricycle riders, school buses or motorcyclists. And parents with extremely busy schedules may need your services to help them pick up their children from school, rehearsals and other locations and pay you for your services as long as your daily commute pattern and those of their children match.
3. Equipment transportation service
Many people in Lagos visit busy business districts daily. Fortunately, they need a car owner like you to help them transport their items to a particular location. All you need is to have a car, and match with this category of passengers on the Parizzo platform.
4. Car courier services
People want tons of items delivered from one location to another. And this is one car business idea we suggest that you consider. For starters, you can start a car courier service with your vehicle by reaching out to potential customers (think Instagram and other social media vendors, wholesalers, MSMEs, private individuals and even physical store owners) and help them deliver their goods and any other items to their customers and start making some cool money.
5. Moving/Relocation services
Not a day goes by that people do not move from one location within Lagos, into Lagos, outside Lagos, or even other parts of Nigeria. If you have a large vehicle, you can help people move their belongings and household items and get paid for your services.
6. Airport shuttle services
Pandemic or not, visitors from other countries and even Nigerians returning from international trips need your services as a car provider to take them from the airport to their hotels or any other destination they have in mind. It’s a great way to make some cool cash, and quickly.
7. Car rental services
Car rental services are great for car owners who do not always drive their cars around. If you have a car you do not use often, you can consider renting it out for a day or two to people who need your car.
However, before considering this, we strongly suggest that you have a paid insurance package that fully covers costs, especially in situations such as theft, accidents or damages.
While this list isn’t exhaustive, we hope you get the drift. It’s possible to make extra money in Nigeria. All you need is to have a car and you are good to go!
