How To Make Money Using Your Dump Trailer!March 28, 2020 by Kyle McFarlane
Looking for a great way to make some extra cash on the weekends? Invest in a quality dump trailer and enjoy these convenient opportunities to haul extra loads or transport your equipment to earn money on the side. Dump trailers are great for construction workers, farmers and now for anyone looking for a side job.
If you have scrap metal or vehicles on your property, a heavy-duty trailer can help you haul all that scrap to the junkyard. Depending on the price of scrap, you can make a good deal of money on metal and vehicles that would otherwise sit and rust.
Ask around your neighbourhood or workplace for individuals who need removal services. Many homeowners would be happy to have scrap metal removed for free from their property, which allows you to make money hauling unused items away to sell.
Even if the scrap and junk isn’t worth money at the dump, you can still use your trailer to earn money this way. Simply charge homeowners for the haul-away services and make money by helping out with spring cleaning in your area.
Offer Snow Removal and Landscaping Services
Few homeowners enjoy taking care of their own landscaping and snow removal. Load up your trailer with a snowblower, ATV with a snow shovel, mulch, topsoil or lawn mowing equipment. All these items are difficult to load into a truck, so a dump trailer can give you the flexible transportation you need to provide these services to your friends and family or to start a side business.
Hauling your lawn mower to another property is convenient and a great way to make money in the evenings. If you enjoy working outdoors and already have your own snow removal and landscaping equipment, all that’s missing is a trailer and some ramps to haul it around the community.
A dump trailer is an excellent option for landscaping because it’s so versatile. Load up your wheelbarrow, lawn mower and other equipment and drop them off at the job site. Next, pick up a load of mulch or topsoil and enjoy easy dumping exactly where you need it.
Help Move Furniture and Household Items
Move furniture for retirees, newly married couples, college students and other households in your area. Moving can be a stressful time, so many households choose to hire a moving service. Haul household items with your new trailer to enjoy some extra cash. Whether you offer to load up items or simply transport them, pick up moving jobs to earn money in the evenings or over weekends.
This is a great way to help out your community while making some cash. If you’re working with people in your area, you can charge less than professional moving companies because you have less distance to drive. Work with individuals who are hard up for cash and provide a service that benefits them while still earning you some money.
Save Money on Shipping Costs
While not a way to make extra money, picking up your own appliances and heavy equipment is a great way to save money. Don’t pay for shipping to your construction site or for your new refrigerator, water heater or furniture. Choose a dump trailer that’s large enough to handle these bulky items and pick them up in store for safe transportation and convenient savings.
