Make Money With Your Car
Today’s Money Making tip is a fairly short one and applies solely to the UK. However, in other countries, they must be doing something similar.
If not, perhaps you, yourself could start up something like this.
If you want to earn some EXTRA money for doing what you are already doing, i.e driving – here is an idea which may work for you.
You register with a company called Stuff2Send as a Carrier (not Courier). The difference between a carrier & a courier, is that a carrier chooses to work as and when they feel like and also, with Stuff2Send, you choose to bid on work as it becomes available.
Lets’ say you live in London, but you drive to Birmingham every day. You can choose to “Deliver” a parcel on the way if you wish – thus reducing your normal driving costs as you are being paid to deliver the parcel. Now, this can work well for people who just want to earn some extra cash.
As long as you have a driving licence, and a vehicle (of course!) you can join Stuff2Send as a carrier and bid for work.
You simply join for free, and let Stuff2Send know where you live, and where you can go to deliver.
They do the rest, they receive the offers to deliver and they offer the job through the membership site – you bid for the job, the person who wants the item delivered, either accepts or rejects your bid..
Here is a little bit about Stuff2Send:
Stuff2Send.com puts people who need stuff delivered, in touch with couriers and drivers who plan to be driving there anyway.
- Every day millions of UK motorists with cars, taxis, vans and trucks drive all over the country with empty space in their vehicles.
- Thousands of others – at home or in offices – have stuff to send like parcels, furniture, removals, eBay items etc.
- Stuff2Send connects the two, letting those driving somewhere take stuff you need to send there.
Who can send things?
Quite simply, anyone. If you have an item that needs delivered, then you are eligible to use this service.
What can be sent?
Any “stuff” can be sent; it could be a parcel, a box, a student move, something sold at an online auction, a complete house move, garden rubbish, boxes, crates, furniture, even yourself. Literally anything can be “broadcast” as Stuff2Send.
Who can be a Carrier?
Anyone, whether they be an individual or a business, with a valid driver’s license who is responsible and reliable including commuters, minibus drivers, white van men, couriers, sales reps, taxi services, removal companies, students, housewives, people looking for odd jobs… anyone.
Stuff2Send puts Senders and Carriers in touch. We facilitate the timely exchange of information and communications between parties to achieve the best result for both parties.
We are not a delivery service and are not involved in any final commercial arrangements between the parties.
Keith’s Money Making Tips have no connection with Stuff2Send.

Have a great day
Hello, today’s money making tip is about a way you can help your local community and help yourself at the same time.
You have probably heard of “Neighbourhood Watch” where people keep an eye out in the local streets for suspicious characters, and phone police if they see anything wrong. Well this is NOTHING like that at all! (lol)…
This is Neighbourhood Knights… a self help group who band together under your direction to assist members of the immediate community – for a FEE of course.
Think about what is going on in your local community at any one time.
People need electricians, they need painters, they need someone to fix their fence, to mow their lawn – they may even need someone to clean their house or visit once in a while because they are lonely.
Now picture this – in the evening what are most people doing on any given night ? Answer – mainly watching TV.
Don’t you think amongst your local community that you would have:
a) People who need extra money
b) People who have some sort of skill which could be of USE to another local person
You are just going to match the two of them up, and take a cut of any fees.
As a Neighbourhood Knights leader you can call and/or leave a card explaining on one side of the card the sort of skills required, and on the other side of the card, you show a nice big “MAKE MONEY” in Red on Black.
Charge reasonable rates, get a variety of people on your books from your local neighbourhood, this way you are helping out your local people by providing them with answers to their problems, at reasonable rates – and on the flip side of that coin you are providing part time work to other local people.
Obviously check out the people who are going to be on your books, take a reference and ask for examples of their work.
If someone claiming to be a good house cleaner comes on board, ask them to clean your house first as a “test” (lol) for FREE!
How many people must there be on any given day – in say, just a small 3 mile square area of any built up area, who would perhaps require some help with their computer, a babysitter – or they may need a plumber, a TV repairman, a cleaner, someone to run up and collect a takeaway.
The possibilities are endless. I remember when I was a child, someone in my local area was running a handyman service from the end of his long garden, in his shed, people used to say he did it just to get away from his wife, but this was all he did, he didn’t have a job, so it must have worked for him.
Well, that’s today’s money making tip.
I will be back tomorrow
Have a good day
