Many people in 2019 work a part-time job or have a ‘side hustle’ to make a little extra money. If you have always been handy with tools, and you own a truck that can help you haul furniture and other materials, you might want to consider being a handyman. Here are just a few examples of tasks you can get paid to do as a handyman with a truck:
One downside of owning a truck is being obligated to help your friends move for free, but one upside is that you can help clients move for a price. You can save your clients from having to hire a professional moving company by offering up your truck and your services for a fraction of the cost. With a truck, you can haul plenty of boxes and furniture, and if you have a trailer to go along with it, you can double your load.
Shopping online for furniture is becoming more and more common, but many customers who shop online do not want to actually assemble the furniture that they purchased. You can utilize the toolbox on your truck to help your clients assemble furniture quickly and professionally. Even if they buy their furniture at a store, but do not know how to haul it home, you can perform that service for them.
The bed of your truck will allow you to haul around plenty of tools and equipment that you will need to perform basic home repairs for your client, such as securing a backyard gate that is hanging on by a thread or replacing shingles on a rooftop. As long as you have the right tools, many of these tasks should be easy to complete, and if you are unsure of how to fix something, don’t hesitate to call McCauley Services for assistance.
Outdoor cleaning is something that often falls to the wayside for most people, but it can make a huge difference in the appearance of a home. You can bring along the proper equipment to clean client’s gutters, pressure washes their siding and patio and make the windows look as good as new.
As a handyman with a truck, you have the ability to take the waste off of the client’s hands. This includes yard waste, any leftover items from a renovation, or old furniture that they do not know what to do with. Just be sure to clean out the bed of your truck if you are hauling away any garbage so that it does not start to have an odor.
Mosquitoes, rats and cockroaches will have a field day in any standing water around your property. In fact, mosquitoes breed in standing water. Therefore, this is an extremely important business pest control tip. Look around your property to find any standing water that could become a welcome environment for pests. Fill in potholes and remove anything that is collecting water.
