So if you are interested with this on-trend economy, here are 5 companies offering on-demand services that you might want to work for.
This San Francisco-based startup connects riders with safe, reliable, convenient transportation providers. All you need is a good car to turn into a money machine.

If you don’t mind offering freelance labor like household errands and some skilled tasks, you can become a tasker in TaskRabbit as an extra source of income.

Aside from offering transportation services, there’s another way to make use of your car as a means to earn extra income anytime you are available.
