2. Rent out Your Car
When you have a full time job, your car spends a lot of time idle in the packing area. You can use these idle hours to earn a decent side income for yourself. If you report to work at 9 and leave at 5 in the evening, you can rent your car during your working hours.

3. Vehicle Advertising

Whether it’s a marketing or branding idea, look for companies that are most likely to buy your idea and pitch to them.
5. Rent Space
