Make money with your driveway – rent it out.
If you’re considering having a new driveway or an old existing driveway re-surfaced and there’s a little extra room you could incorporate into the driveway, then it might be the perfect opportunity to make a little money back.
With rising numbers of commuters, overall cars on the road and the ever increasing costs of parking, renting your spare driveway space out is becoming a realistic option for many homeowners, with some earning an average of £30 a week.
There are one or two websites that you can join, which offer homeowners and landowners interested in renting out parking space a convenient portal on which to advertise and find prospective customers.
So that new driveway you’ve been promising yourself for ages could actually recoup some of its costs at no trouble to yourself.
