To find opportunities to make money by wrapping your car in company advertising, contact a company that matches drivers willing to wrap their cars with companies who need advertising. Avoid firms that require a fee to match you with companies.
Legitimate companies who pay people to wrap their car in advertising seek individuals who live in target demographic areas, maintain car insurance, have acceptable driving records and meet specific demographic criteria. Companies pay between $300 to $900 a month as of 2015, and recruit qualified drivers using matchmaking companies. Some companies require drivers to maintain GPS devices in their vehicles to ensure drivers spend sufficient time driving in target locations.
The practice was most popular during the early 2000s, with some companies offering drivers the use of new cars for advertising. Internet start-up companies frequently sought out auto wrap drivers as low-cost advertising. Demand for auto wrap advertising declined when gasoline prices rose sharply, causing drivers to reduce the time they spent driving. The rise in online advertising also contributed to the decline of the practice. Companies also grew more selective in the drivers they paid to advertise.
Consequently, it is more challenging to find legitimate opportunities to earn pay for driving a wrapped car. Further, many fraudulent matchmaking companies that charge fees for their services have names similar to legitimate companies.
