verybody needs to transport large items at one time or another. It may be
a cupboard, dining table, home stereo or bed - items that won't fit into a compact
car. It becomes a problem if the destination is across town or somewhere further.

If you happen to own a truck, van or large MPV, you could start a business
offering transport for just these types of situations. Having a good, strong
back is definitely a plus but depending on the size of the item, you may need
to hire a temp. You can operate from your home so you can offer savings to your
customer by charging cheaper rates.
You need to be available outside of office hours to accomodate working individuals.
Again this works out to your advantage if you happen to hold a day job. To expand
your business, you will need to network with other truck owners who are interested
in providing this sort of service. As the business owner, you will undertake
the responsibility of advertising your service. You will take a small percentage
of the amount earned by your fellow transporter. The wider your area of coverage,
the more jobs you'll be able to land.
