Congratulations. Local moving jobs for people with trucks are some of the best paid side hustles available anywhere. Our favorite side hustle platform in the space says you’ll earn between $48 and $109 per hour, depending on the type of truck you drive.

Naturally, you need muscle — the ability to lift 50 pounds or more. And, since you’re paying for gas and maintenance, it’s not all profit. But, local moving jobs for people with trucks are still highly paid and desirable for people who want a physical job.

If you’re interested in local moving jobs, these are your choices:


GoShare connects people who have trucks and muscles with consumers who need help with moving or delivery. The site works with big box retailers, such as Costco, as well as other furniture retailers to provide delivery services. So, the site gets plenty of work to shell out.

And GoShare’s payment formula promises a great hourly wage — as much as $109 per hour for drivers, depending on the type of vehicle you drive. You get paid via direct deposit within four days of completing a job. Learn more about GoShare here.


Truxx helps people with trucks find people who need help moving. The site requires you to have a truck, auto insurance and be over the age of 18. It takes 30% of the delivery fee as a commission, but charges customers $60 to $70 per hour, depending on whether you’re helping people lift things into your truck. So you earn between $42 and $49 per hour. It also will book moving “helpers” (who do not need to have a truck) at a $30 per hour rate, giving those individuals $21 per hour. Learn more about Truxx here.


It’s one of the less lucrative options, but Dolly will pay drivers $30 per hour, plus tips, to help people move. You can also work here without your own truck, but the hourly rates are pretty poor. Learn more about Dolly here.
