Zilok is a peer-to-peer lending platform that allows individuals and businesses to rent out anything and everything from cameras to properties. Add your listing, set a price and earn money from things you no longer use or don't mind lending out to make a profit!

Categories include auto, tools, party, electronics, leisure, luxury, at home and vacation. Visitors can search for something by area or by category and if they don't have it, they can request a quote, so even if you are not in the area they are searching for, you might still be able to get the business.  

For those of you who think you don't have anything people would pay to rent, one of the recently rented items was an inflatable Ride the Horse costume, so surely it is worth listing something!  Examples of items you can rent out on Zilok include:

  • Houses
  • Cars
  • Sewing machines
  • Wedding dresses
  • Strollers
  • Venues
  • Tools
  • Sports equipment

If you have a parking space you don't use, you can list it for free on and rent it out. Instead of that empty driveway, parking lot, or garage going to waste, make some money from it! You choose the days you want to rent it and get paid direct to your PayPal or bank account.

JustPark describes itself as "Europes leading provider of pre-bookable parking"  although their popular locations only list places in the UK at the time of writing, but this may change in the future.Anyone who has every tried to find afforable parking in cities knows just how difficult that can be, so anything that makes it easier, and cheaper, to park will be popular with drivers.

It is free to list your parking space on and they don't even charge you commission - they add a fee on to the rental amount and charge the clients booking the space instead. You don't need to be home when the driver arrives, as long as they can access the parking space without you, and if they overstay they will be charged for the extra time. If the driver does not turn up and has not given you notice of the cancellation, they still have to pay.

You choose when you want to rent it out and you can choose to  make it unavailable for rental when you are going to use it yourself or if you want to let friends and family use it. 


Anywhere with a parking space including:

  • Private homes
  • Schools
  • Churches
  • Hotels
  • Pubs


The amount you can make from renting out your parking space will obviously depend on the location, but you can get a good idea of what to charge by looking at what other people are charging in your area. In Westminster for example, the average price is £8.14 per day with a maximum of £340 per day, whereas in Islington the maximum is £25 per day.


You can get paid direct to your bank or to PayPal and you can choose automatic withdrawals to your banks on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. Withdrawals over £25 are free, anything less than that will cost you 50p.

Get Paid to Cuddle with Snuggle Buddies


Snuggle Buddies offer a touch therapy service that is completely platonic and pays its cuddlers $40 per hour plus travel expenses. They are currently hiring throughout the US, Canada, Australia and the UK because it seems there are a lot of people out there who are looking for a bit of human warmth.  It sounds strange I know and I am sure the majority of people are thinking it is just a cover story for an escort service, but Snuggle Buddies has appeared on national media and are not the only company offering this service.

The first thing you have to consider is the safety aspect, especially as most clients want to go and cuddle in your home. This is a benefit because you can have someone else in the house as protection, although they company claims they have never had any problems (you are required to call them after the session ends and if you don't check in they send the police to your house to make sure you are ok.)

Cuddling is considered Touch Therapy which is thought to help with a variety of ailments including depression, anxiety and high blood pressure. Modern society, especially in big cities, has us living a very fast paced lifestyle with less community or closeness to others than before. Single people living in a big city are particular prone to feeling alone and a cuddling service can give them the boost they need.

Although Snuggle Buddies is primarily a professional cuddling service, they also offer clients a 'hire a friend' type of service where they can hire people to accompany them to events.


  • Warm and caring personality
  • Agree to cuddle both male and female clients
  • Agree to cuddle all ages (most clients are over 50)
  • Agree to accept all races
  • Agree not to have any sexual activity with clients, including kissing

At $40 dollars an hour Professional Cuddling is certainly better paid than many work from home jobs, as long as you make sure you are safe.
