Have you ever thought about being your own boss and leaving behind the nine-to-five? Perhaps you would love to own a business, but have struggled to find the right idea. Or maybe you like to spend a lot of time travelling and are worried about how you can keep your business going while you’re on the road.

The good news is, there are loads of amazing businesses you can start on a mobile basis, giving you lots of freedom and allowing you to move from location to location. Sound good? Here are five of the best mobile business ideas you could start.

Food Truck

Do you love cooking? Are you always experimenting in the kitchen? Maybe you enjoy throwing dinner parties for friends and family? If so, turn your passion into your job, by starting your own food business. Buy a trailer and purchase a portable generator so you can start your own mobile bistro, bakery, or even coffee cart. With this type of business, you could also secure seasonal work at weddings and festivals.

Pet Grooming

Maybe you have a lot of experience with animals, enjoy pampering your own pets, or perhaps you’ve worked in the beauty industry and are looking to transfer your skills. People love their pets and are happy to spend money to give their furry friends the best. While you could open a store, by starting a mobile pet grooming business, you can travel to your client’s location, offering them a convenient service.

Travel Writer and Photographer

If you travel a lot, then you could have a business opportunity ready and waiting: travel writer and photographer. There are many writers and photographers who have turned their side-projects into a viable business. You could start a travel blog to publish your prose and photos, upload your images to a stock library, or display your work in exhibitions.

Mobile Shops

Perhaps you have sold some of your personal items online, enjoy making your own clothes with a sewing machine, or have experience in retail. If so, you could start a mobile clothing business. There are lots of opportunities for this type of business, from travelling around the country to sell at vintage fairs and festivals, to opening short-term pop-up shops. Alternatively, you could open an online boutique.

Party Bus

If you have experience in events management, working with the public, or in catering and hospitality, then you could create a mobile party business. By converting a vehicle into a party bus, you could provide parties for children’s birthdays, hen and stag dos and graduations, or even rent out your bus for weddings and special occasions.
