In need of money in a hurry? When you’re in need of some quick cash, the pressure tends to be on, and it’s times like these you need to think on your feet and take immediate action… yet when in this position, we often feel so much stress, panic and fear that we allow the emotions of the situation to control us – meaning we lose that sense of power and feeling in control.
The sense of powerlessness is what robs people of their ability to respond appropriately in a practical, rational and logical sense.
Prevention is often better than cure when it comes to financial situations, but not everyone is in the position to have cash reserves lying around, and we all get in financial scrapes from time to time. This post provides some inspiration on how you can use one of your most common assets (your car) to get out of a financial pickle.
GET A CAR TITLE LOAN
If you’re in need of a short-term cash injection then a car title loan, sometimes known as a logbook loan in the UK can help bridge that gap. This type of lending isn’t usually designed for the long term – but sites such as http://www.auto.loan can be a great way to get out of a short-term bind and pay for emergency purchases such as an unexpected vet bill or household emergency.
These types of loans are usually pretty easy and fast to obtain for most people as your credit history isn’t such a vital component, as the loan is secured on the asset itself, being your car – but if you don’t pay, then you do run the risk of the vehicle being taken by the finance company.
BECOME A DELIVERY DRIVER
Whilst there are new quick and inventive ways to make money, such as with matched betting, there’s something that feels more secure about more traditional offline work where you are simply paid for your time. Many takeaway restaurants require delivery drivers at night, and this can pay a fair amount of money… it’s not going to make you rich, but it can be as simple as turning up to the local takeaway and starting to work that night.
The popularity of app based food ordering services has created a huge demand for food delivery drivers. This can be an easy, simple and fast way to get some extra cash – not just from the deliveries themselves, but also in terms of tips from customers.
DRIVE FOR UBER
Uber can be a great way to make money if you are prepared to put in the hours. In New York City, for instance, working around 30 hours per week you will net approximately $1,500. In the UK it’s a little more regulated than the US where you will require a private hire licence, so it might not be too appropriate for making immediate cash – but it can be a lucrative and highly profitable part-time venture to top-up your income in a flexible way on your terms.
