People always say that it takes money to make money, and to some extent, that may be true. However, if you have access to a little cash and a boom truck rental company, you can easily make yourself some money without having your own business or a lot of money to invest in it. Take a look at a few ways you can make money with a rented boom truck.
1. Cleaning Windows - All those homes and businesses with upper-story windows have one thing in common: they are constantly in need of someone to do some window cleaning. Grab some window cleaning supplies and post an ad for window cleaning on a local classified website, you can probably line up enough jobs in your location to keep you busy for a full day and make really good money in the process.
2. Changing Light Bulbs - Street lights, parking lot lights, lights on signs—the bulbs in the lights are usually really high off the ground, and they do consistently need to be changed. With a boom truck, you have the ability to get to these heights in a flash so the bulbs can be changed without a hassle. You can charge so much per bulb to change the lights and most business owners will be happy to pay the price.
3. Cleaning Gutters - Cleaning out the gutters is important as far as home maintenance goes, but a lot of homeowners neglect the task because they do not feel comfortable climbing around on a ladder. With a boom truck, you can tackle the gutters and clean them out without a lot of hassle or time, and you could likely clean several sets of gutters in a day's time, so in one day of rental, you could make a nice little paycheck.
4. Cleaning Signs - When business signs get dingy and dirty, they do not look as attractive to passersby, but business owners rarely have time to get outside and clean these fixtures themselves. Take your rented boom truck around to local business owners and see if they will pay you to clean their sign. Most will happily hand over a small payment for the work.
Overall, a boom truck can be a highly valuable piece of equipment if you are looking to make some extra money, even if you do not have a lot of tools or equipment. Reach out to a boom truck rental store for more ideas about how this piece of equipment can be used.
