Make £100 a Month With Ads on Your Car!

Vehicle advertisments – taxis and buses do it, so why not your car?

If you don’t mind driving around with ads on your car bonnet, you could make around £100 a month for very little effort.

Formula 1 has popularized ads on cars, and now all sorts of brands are using it to reach consumers in new and innovative ways.

It becomes even more attractive when you work out the cost of motoring these days!

So if you fancy turning your car into a cash earner rather than a cash drainer without having to lift a finger, read on.

 

What’s involved?

First things first, you’ve got to get the ads on your car. The company that you sign up to will do this by applying an adhesive vinyl wrap to all or part of the vehicle.

Such ‘car wraps’ can be added and removed easily without spoiling the paintwork. In fact, it’s been shown to actually protect your car’s paintwork from UV rays, corrosion and light scratches.

Special transparent vinyl is used on the windows so it won’t interfere with your driving visibility. Full insurance is provided against any damage to the paintwork of your vehicle caused by the advert’s placement, so you don’t even need to worry if something does happen.

Some car wrapping companies will then require you to drive a certain amount each month before paying you.

Others won’t ask you to change your driving habits, but will match your driving routine to their advertisers’ needs.

Saying this, many do prefer cars that are newer or in good condition. You will also be required to keep the outside of your car clean while the advert is on it – you should report any damage to the ads or your car immediately.

Also, you’re free to turn down any branding allocated to your vehicle that you would not feel comfortable advertising.

In order to be considered for a wrap, most companies require their drivers to have:

  • a clean driver’s licence
  • a current MOT and road tax for the vehicle
  • valid insurance for the duration of the contract
  • no convictions for drink driving, manslaughter or dangerous driving causing death.

Remember, you’ll be expected to always drive responsibly – an erratic, speeding driver is probably not going to create the best impression for the advertiser!

The concept has been widely used in both the US and Europe, where advertisers like Gillette and the Transformers movie have worked with Moscow based Stickerride.

You can still become part of the scheme if you happen to drive a company car, providing your company gives you permission of course. Car wrap groups can also offer corporate packages if you have a fleet of cars, vans or trucks that you are interested in registering.

In addition to getting paid, you reduce the risk of your car being stolen with such unique bodywork. You may even get freebies from the advertisers such as samples and discounts. Most car wrapping companies will also pay you if you refer other people to them.

Still interested? If you meet the above requirements, and think you can handle a little artwork on your car, then read on to find out just how much vehicle wrapping is worth!

How much can you make?

moneymagpie_make-100-a-month-with-ads-on-your-car_car-adThe rate of pay varies according to the company you go with and how much of your car you’re willing to get wrapped.

With carquids.com, the leading car advertising company in the UK with over 5000 drivers registered, you can earn anything from £50-100 per month for having ads on your car, depending on model and where it’s driven.

That means you could earn £600-1200 per year without having to change your driving habits – think of what this covers in terms of insurance, servicing or plain old petrol money!

Drivers are paid monthly so it’s a nice way to supplement your income, plus there’s the chance to get freebies or samples from the advertisers you are working with.

Where can you sign up?

Register and get matched.

Registering your car for Car Quids is as easy as visiting their website and completing a short form about your car and driving habits.

You are then matched to a relevant advertiser based on your profile – if you’re a fan of one particular brand you should say as some brands like to have brand ambassadors.

Car Quids have local centres where you can take your car to have advertising fitted and it usually only takes about 20 minutes to get it all sorted.

All that’s left to do then is hit the open road. Happy driving – and earning!

      1. Hi Justin, thank you. Are there any companies that are still doing this? I’m a bit concerned about the amount of information you have to register if it’s not even going to get you on a waiting list.

        1. Underwraps advertising is still running and doing well. They match clients ads with vehicles and pay an average of £100 per month to car owners. They would be a good one to sign up with.

  6. Ok – another update “Use that Space’ do not require a tie in from you when registering – don’t know whathappens if you are offered advertising – but at least no tie in just to register online!

  7. Same applies to registering with “Money4Space” (Lion Media)but the tie in is 3 yrs (we are getting lower….)
    Thier clause 2.2 states:
    2.2 Registration on the Lion Media UK LTD Database

    Lion Media UK LTD intends to establish a database of Advertisees who desire to carry a Advertisement on their vehicle.

    By executing this Agreement, the Advertisee agrees to be registered on the Lion Media UK LTD database of potential drivers and vehicles for a term of three years from the date that the Advertisee submits the completed Registration Form to Lion Media UK LTD.

    The Advertisee agrees not to register on another similar vehicle advertisement, driving programme or vehicle advertisement database during such three year term regardless of whether or not the Accepted Advertisee is selected for a Duration.

  8. Ok – same goes for registering with ‘Comm-motion’ online too – except you are tied in with them ‘exclusively’ for 5 years…
    Their clause 1.2 states:
    ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN.
    1.2 Registration on the Database. The Company intends to establish a database of Owners who desire to carry a Display under an Advertising Campaign.
    By executing this Agreement, the Owner agrees to be registered on the Company’s database of potential drivers and vehicles for a term of five (5) years from the date that the Owner executes the Form.
    The Owner agrees not to register on another similar vehicle advertisement advertisership, or driving programme or vehicle advertisement database, during such five (5) year term, regardless of whether or not the Accepted Owner is selected for a Showing.

  9. OK, by registering with e.g. ‘Pro-Motor’ online – Clause 2.2. of their Terms and Conditions state that you agree to being tied up to them ‘exclusively’ for 6 years i.e. you cannot register with another company. This is applicable whether you get accepted by them or not. This may apply to other companies’ terms and conditions too but important point is READ the TERMS AND CONDITIONS before registering to any of these companies!!
    Clause 2.2. states….
    2.2. “By executing this Agreement, the Advertisee agrees to be registered on the Pro-Motor database for a term of six years from the date that the Advertisee submits the completed Registration Form to Pro-Motor.
    The Advertisee agrees that it will remain exclusively registered to Pro-Motor for the entirety of the term. That is, not to register on another similar vehicle advertisement, driving programme or vehicle advertisement database during the six year term regardless of whether or not the Advertisee is selected to be an Accepted Advertisee.”
