Jobs For Pickup Truck Owners
All of the following jobs with your pickup truck can be done in your spare time or full-time. With most you could even start your own local business in order to start getting paid with your truck as soon as possible.
1. Provide a Junk Hauling Service
Get paid to haul away large items that people no longer want. When you have a truck and trailer attached, you will have enough room to handle multiple small jobs or one large job.
- Small jobs are typically 1-3 items where you can make an average of $65 per job just for picking them up.
- Larger jobs could be a full basement clean out, clearing out an estate sale or even disassembling and removing an entire office full of cubicles.
When you add a trailer to your pickup truck you can haul larger junk such as appliances, furniture and more, but you can also take on the bigger jobs; meaning more money and jobs!

2. Provide a Moving Service
When people relocated across the city or just down the street, most hire a moving company to help make the transition easier. When you use your truck for moving services you will help homeowners or business owners move from one place to another quicker if you have a trailer attached to your pickup truck and are able to make less trips back and forth.
Because you will be responsible for taking all of their things from point A to point B, you will have to move extra carefully to be sure not to break or damage any personal belongings.
3. Provide a Yard Care Service
When you have more space to store things, items like a lawnmower and tree limb clippers are easy to transport from place to place. One way to make extra money with your pickup truck, but is labor-intensive, is by grooming and landscaping other people’s front and backyards.

4. Provide a Delivery Service
In the world driven by powerhouses like Amazon, companies are trying to keep up with the demand of deliveries in certain areas. When you add a trailer you can make more deliveries and take larger packages! However, by working for a big company you will have to work on their schedule and time, so you won’t get to choose your own hours or be your own boss.

5. Provide a Towing Service
There are plenty of opportunities for pickup truck owners with a specific type of trailer to tow cars, trucks or boats to make additional income. However, to get started in a towing job, you need to be licensed and available 24/7. Often, the job could even be 100 miles away or more.
6. Provide a Rental Service
Another option, is you could rent out your pickup truck and/or trailer to someone looking to do one of the above types of jobs for themselves. May not be quite as profitable as the side jobs itself, but certainly, a lot less work for you with some additional money coming in.
The key element that all of these side jobs have in common is the need for a trailer to maximize profits but also to get the job done all in one visit.
