Big names like Uber and Lyft have become household names in our society for ride sharing services. These companies will allow drivers to act as a sort of taxi for their passengers in a rush. It may require some awkward interaction, but you can see jobs as they are available.
While it’s not very clear how much a ride share driver will make since it depends on the area, distance, tip, and several other factors, you are able to work on your own schedule. The main benefit of this job is having the incredible flexibility of accepting their jobs at your own leisure.
📲 Want a gig with that has the incredible flexibility of a rideshare app but also provides the prospect of a much larger payout per ride? Become a Loader and work on your own time!
Grocery Delivery Driver
Grocery delivery is becoming a popular service in our day and age. More and more people are making the decision to skip all that time they would have spent shopping around their local supermarket. Now, they will often choose having someone else do it for them instead.
It’s common amongst people looking for a side gig to sign up with services such as this. As a shopper, you typically have a short amount of time in which you can shop for the items on the customer’s list while communicating actively with them to ensure you don’t get a bad rating!
After quickly shopping, you’ll be able to deliver these groceries. The food will also often need to be kept in thermal bags, because it’s important that nothing goes bad on the way over. 🍎
You will be able to shop at any time you’d like, but if you accept a job, it is crucial you follow through. The more you shop and interact with the customer, the more cash you’ll make. Most grocery delivery services allow themselves up to 30 days before needing to pay a shopper.

Restaurant Delivery Driver
It was not too long ago that only select restaurants provided delivery, and working as an pizza delivery driver was the common choice among college students. Driving around warm cheesy bread was as easy as pizza pie 🍕. But technology brought us the boom of the delivery apps.
Customers can now get anything they’re craving at the tap of a button with apps that display beautiful food for them. The food you could pick up for them and deliver right to their door!
Pizza delivery drivers on average make a little under $9 an hour, but driving for a delivery app can bring in a small bit more than that. You are able to accept jobs when you want them, but in order to be a lucrative gig – you’ll most likely need to start driving farther than you planned.
‼️ PRO TIP: If you want to be able to set your service area radius and not need to travel outside of it – while still making money – see if you meet the requirements to become a Loader today!
Junk Removal Jobs
The junk removal industry has often been called recession proof as its reliability for jobs has stood the test of time. Residents and businesses alike will always have old items like furniture, appliances, mattresses, and more that they need to get rid of through a responsible method.
They will pay good money to hire a dependable and trustworthy service that will provide the safe removal of such items from their home or business before properly disposing of them.
While working in the junk removal industry can be incredibly beneficial to your wallet, you want to make sure that you work with a fantastic company. Most junk removal companies believe in franchising, and while it can make you money, you’ll be confined to fixed hours.
However, LoadUp can offer weekly payouts and flexible hours because we are the largest network of independent contractors – so you can work for yourself and earn serious cash!
