Well now, a brand new money-maker has emerged that makes use of the space outside your home. You can now earn money by renting out your driveway.
Yes, people will actually pay you money to leave their car on your driveway.
A number of websites have popped up enabling you to successfully earn a fee for your driveway such as www.parkonmydrive.com and www.justpark.com, as well as making it easy for you to find a driveway to rent.
We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve had to get to an awkward location, whether it’s for work or pleasure, and found it an absolute nightmare to park. The car parks are either full or nowhere to be seen, it’s gridlocked on the roads and there are the dreaded double yellow lines visible on every available space. Free driveways always look so enticing but you obviously can’t just shoehorn your way in.
Well now, you can - if the driveway is available for rent!If you have a spare driveway sitting there empty each day, it makes sense to use it to put a little bit more cash in your pocket.
Prices vary from city to city, and depending on whether you’re near famous landmarks, entertainment venues or train stations. London is the obvious big money maker with a weekly rental spot in either upmarket Chelsea or Westminster going for around £250. If you live in Bromley however and were hoping to start raking it in, the going rate is only around £8 per week.
Obviously we were intrigued to know how much tarmac driveways in Telford would be charged at so we had a little bit of an investigation and we think £25 for a full week of unlimited parking isn't bad!
