dA common desire for families is to have extra spending cash. They work hard at their day/full time job but the salary just isn’t cutting it. A lot of times, people have side jobs to earn this extra money. Below are some ideas to get you motivated for your side hustle.

Direct Sales

There are many companies out there whose focus is the side hustle. Direct Sales jobs are often taken on in conjunction with a full time job, but they can also be a full time job on their own depending how well you do.

Packages

If you’re unfamiliar with the nuts and bolts of sending parcels overseas the entire process can seem just a little confusing at best; or worrying at worst. Even if we set the problem of finding a good deal for a reliable service aside for a moment, getting a firm grip on details of a delivery can leave you considering the idea of buying a plane ticket and taking the package yourself. -Nearly.

Many online couriers have recognised that we don’t want to become trained experts in global logistics before we can send a parcel to USA and this realisation has been a key factor in the evolution of the services they provide. With the right courier arranging a delivery ought to be relatively straight forward, possibly not as simple as posting letter – but not far off.

As long as you take a few moments to make sure you have any relevant information to hand, you shouldn’t encounter any real issues. So, what counts as relevant?

Two addresses – the point of collection and the point of delivery. No real surprises here; ensure you have the post or zip code for both locations.

Measurements – if you’re getting a quick quote online you’ll need to tell the courier how large and how heavy it is before they can collect it as each will have restrictions on the size of items they are able to carry. Accurate measurements are also necessary for generating an accurate price of course.

Details – packages sent within the borders of the EU do not require customs documentation; deliveries going outside of the EU do though. Any self-respecting online courier will make producing any and all paperwork easy – for customs invoices you’ll need a reason for exporting the package (“gift” for example) as well as a brief description of the items being sent and an estimate their value.

Other than that, all you need to do is pay and wait for the collection to take place.
