Pickup truck owners can find steady work in delivering wood, sand, gravel, or similar materials. Many sellers of these items charge two rates: one that includes delivery, and one that doesn’t. You will most likely need to be hired by the end customer, but leads can definitely come through the retailer.
When moving material that can shift or blown out of the truck bed, like sand or gravel, be sure to use tarps or straps to keep your cargo where it belongs. Some quarries will require that your trailer have sides and a tailgate to prevent damage to other vehicles from loose gravel. This option my be best suited for those with their own dump trailer.
