How to maximize the full potential of your car

How to maximize the full potential of your car

Updated on June 20 2024

METRO MANILA, – For most car buyers, having an automobile is all about convenience.

They enjoy the luxury of going to different places anytime they want without the hassle of riding public transportation.

However, did you know that you can do more things with your car apart from just using it as your travel buddy? Here are some ideas that could work for you.

Run errands for your business

Regardless of what type of car you have, you can use it for your business.

For example, if you are an online seller, your vehicle can certainly help you deliver food packages, balloons, clothes and other things that people need. As a result, you can multitask between personal and business matters.

Furthermore, your vehicle can also serve as a company ride for your employees. This means that you can pick up your workers from their houses so they won’t be late for work. You can also drop them off afterwards to help them save more money on transportation costs.

Utilize the car for special events

If you're searching for other ways to make more money, you can rent your car out for special events.

For instance, your neighbor can use it for her daughter’s wedding. The occasion would only take a few hours and the car would not really drive very fast or very far.

Apart from weddings, you can also advertise your car for other occasions like proms, graduation ceremonies and family joyrides. Just choose the right renters to avoid problems at the end of the day.

Or better yet, drive it yourself if you are not comfortable letting other people behind the wheel of your vehicle.

Become a TNVS driver

Another effective way to earn extra income with your vehicle is to be part of a Transport Network Vehicle Service (TNVS).

By picking up passengers and dropping them off, you can get a commission from their total fee. There are even companies that offer fixed rate salaries to their regular drivers on top of their shares.

However, time management is very important to succeed in this venture, especially if you already have a full-time job. Determine the most convenient time that you can go on the road.

You may also choose to work after a few hours of rest from your day job or schedule it on weekends or during your day off.

Use your car for charity

During trying times, a lot of people will certainly appreciate seeing someone lending some help.

As such, you can maximize the full potential of your car by using it for charitable works. For example, your vehicle can carry cargo for flood victims in your area. You can also drive your neighbors to the nearest hospital when they need medical help.

You can do more depending on your availability and capacity.  Remember, those people may not return the favor immediately, but what you did will surely remain in their hearts forever. And that is the essence of helping.
