Owning a used or old semi-truck is a sure-fire way of starting an array of businesses. If you happen to own one which is just sitting idle somewhere in your yard, then it’s time to start looking into some money-making business ideas to earn you the extra dollars you’ve been wishing for.
On the contrary, if you already have a lucrative plan in mind but still don’t have the vehicle yet, the Web is your best bet for finding reliable and reasonably-priced used or old freightliner semi trucks for sale.
These ideas below are considered the top truck businesses today, which you can start anytime you’re ready. Bear in mind that starting up a company using your vehicle will mean that you will have to have the relevant checks done to be compliant and able to start up a business. You may benefit from using ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) from companies like Lytx if you are primarily in transport, this will help with safety when on the roads.
Mobile Entertainment Business
Yes, you can easily turn your truck into a pop-up cinema or a party vehicle. With a mobile cinema that can move from place to place, moviegoers no longer have to go visit a regular cinema for the latest movies in town. Just be creative with your promotional strategies so people will be aware of what to watch next and where.
During off-season, you may want to cater to party needs like using your truck for delivering food and drinks, tables and chairs, décor supplies and other items. Good thing is, being mobile can get you from one place to another, wherever there’s a party, right?
Food and Beverage Business
This type is one of the most popular lucrative businesses in the US as of late. With the fast life we have in this digital age, the working class doesn’t have the luxury of time to cook anymore. That said, why not bring the food and beverage nearer to them? For one, coffee is an all-time favorite so a mobile coffee shop is a sure money-maker. Be on the lookout for the trendy flavors that most people look for.
Another saleable item is fresh fruit juices. Since people are now conscious of healthy living, you can bank on the fitfam craze to boost your business. Next in line are smoothies which are a must-grab for those jogging in the parks or doing their workouts outdoors as well as in busy places. And don’t forget, people seem to be hungry all the time. Sell them fresh and healthy meals always whatever the time – breakfast, lunch, or dinner including snack time. Additionally, you might consider investing in refrigerated vans that could help to store perishable food and beverages to prevent them from spoiling.
Personal/Pet Grooming and Massage Business
Beauty and barber shops are like mushrooms that sprout practically everywhere because people, not to mention pets, love these grooming services a lot. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone – giving the service to humans and then grooming their household pets after. Once customers know that you’re taking the business to their homes, they won’t need to leave their homes any longer just to transport their pets to salons. Less stress, more comfort as the services are done right in the comfort of their homes. And not only that, you may even include a massage therapy service which people would just be happy to receive after a hard-day’s work. You only need to have a pool of reliable service providers at hand in case the demand for any service pops up.
