found out few days ago that some sign and advertisement companies are willing to wrap your vehicle and get paid to drive it.
does any one knows of any?

PS:I did get in touch with a company in Miami that offered $100 for rear window . thats monthly.
but im looking for some other companies just to see what are they offering.

In some states advertising on the rear window is limited to a certain percentage of the window unless it is a truck or van.If you cover th whole window it would need to be such that you could see through it

As far as a body wrap, I have heard' that you could get a company to pay for renting the spade, but that could be subject to an income tax as it would be considered 'income' and you could be liable to keep it on the car for a length of time, and be responsible to keep it looking good. Some wraps don't handle a lot of weather exposure too good (depending on the quality of the materials) They also may restrict where you take it or where you park. (like outside a bar or certain churches, etc)

I never tried to find out what it would pay or any of the details but this is what I was told 8 years ago. ..

jimvw57 is correct, sounds like taxable income.

Parking restrictions could include overnight in your own driveway with some HOA's.

I'd ask for the references of others before making a contractual commitment.

true, as far declaring as income it will be ok, dont mind.

On HOA's some condos are stifflers about it. I usually park mine at garage so there will be no problem.

I will keep my search on this, wrapping ads got my attention.

I have checked into the mobil ads in Florida. They wanted you to drive in certain high traffic areas and a certain number of miles a day. They were not interested in someone who just drives to work and back. Someone who was an outside salesman or used the car on their job all day was what they were looking for.
