Individuals can make money with a dump truck by hauling materials for landscape contractors, grading companies, construction companies and other businesses that move materials from site to site. The first steps in earning money with a dump truck include obtaining a commercial driver's license and insurance. After getting insurance and a commercial driver licence, create relationships with businesses in the local community to gain access to construction bids.
Local governments use dump trucks to move snow during the extreme winter ice and snowstorms and to remove dirt and debris from construction projects throughout the year. Networking with home-improvement businesses and other contractors provides more resources for potential business.
