Reasons Why This Is A Good Business for You to Do


We have a lot of children in the society who are involved in one activity or the other. There are a lot of teenagers as well as small children who need to get to school and other activities they are involved in and with their parents not able to take them and also due to safety concerns which means they can not go on their own, parents will need to hire your services so you can drop and pick up their children.


These days a lot of parents are too busy and hardly have the time to take their children to school and their other activities and go back to pick them up when they are finished and done.

We have in most families, the father and mother working making it difficult to include their children in their plans as they both have a busy schedule.

Parents have to be at work to be able to make enough money to take care of the family and are always too busy to take their children out and bring them back home.

They live home early in the morning and come back late at night which means they definitely have no time to help their children and will therefore need your services.


There are a lot of people with children but do not have a vehicle to take them out. We have families who own just a car with the father using it to work meaning the mother has to get a vehicle to take them to school which means they will need your services.




To start the business you will need to have a good vehicle which could be a car, bus or a tricycle which is known in Nigeria as “keke marwa”.

What is important is that your vehicle is very comfortable, safe and secured that parents will feel okay with their children being in them.


No parent will be comfortable leaving their children in the hands of a person who can not drive. So make sure you brush up your driving skills and drive safely on the road obeying all traffic laws and regulations.


Really you do not need to get a shop or office for now as you can start the business from home. Make sure of having a means of communication like a phone to be able to call the parents or they call you in case of a change of plans or time of going to drop or pick up the children.

This is a good business to do especially if you already have a vehicle to use. Make sure you have a good back ground security wise with no previous problems with the law authorities as a lot of parents will do a security check as they will not feel safe leaving their children with someone who has any security risks.

Register you vehicle and obtain all necessary and relevant documents like driver’s license and vehicle license as well as insurance papers along with all other necessary documents.

Do your own feasibility study, register the business and fulfill all requirements of the authorities.
