Carvertise ReviewIf you own a car, you've probably heard the expression that a car loses it's value as soon as you drive off the lot. That's not a big deal if you plan to use your car to make money as an uber or taxi driver. But most of us aren't using our vehicles in that way. So we're basically just throwing money away as we drive when you consider the gas and other expenses associated with owning a car. But suppose you could change that and make some of that money back? Well that's exactly what we're going to cover today in this Carvertise Review.

What is Carvertise?

Mac Nagaswami launched Carvertise while he was still a student at the University of Delaware. The company was originally known as PenguinAds before changing their name to Carvertise in 2012. Carveritse is essentially an advertising company that pays drivers like you and I to place removable advertisements of major brands on your car. We just drive like we normally do and the brands get some exposure to other drivers. Did you know you could make money at home without having to drive? You can with &

What Does Carvertise Pay?

Assuming you qualify and are accepted as a driver, you can earn $100 per month. All you're responsible for is just driving your car as you normally would. Drivers are paid based on a campaign, which is basically when a company hires you to promote their brand on your car for a given time frame. The campaigns can run anywhere from 3 to 6 months. So you can earn anywhere from $300-$600 per campaign.

How Do You Qualify To Be A Carvertise Driver?

In order to become a driver, with carvetise, you need to have a “clean” driving record. Furthermore you're expected to drive at least 25 miles per day, and your car should be at least a 2005 model. If you don't meet these qualifications you can still earn money at home with companies such as &

How to do you join the company?

Well first and foremost It's totally free to join Carvertise. To become a driver with this company, you have to apply. The application process is simple and straightforward. You just need to visit and click, “become a driver.” The process has been simplified so that the company can know much more about you and your driving patterns.

Carvertise Complaints

Surprisingly when we looked for complaints about this company, we couldn't find any. In my years of researching companies, that is as a rare as finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn over the rainbow. But apparently Carvertise is one of the few companies that doesn't have a lot of complaints against them. That said, there are some areas of concerns about their opportunity that I've listed below.

It's not a work at home opportunity.

Chances are you are reading my blog because you don't want to leave your house and deal with things like driving in traffic. If that's you, then Carvertise is as appealing to you as a daily Brazilian wax on your privates. I don't personally know how that feels but it doesn't seem appealing to me and neither does having to drive around to make money. But that's me. If you agree, then consider &

Allusive about payment…

Although Carvertise tells you how much you can earn per month. They fail to tell us when we get paid and how do we get paid? Are they sending us a check? Is it direct deposit or maybe it's Paypal. We just don't know. You would think it would be one of the questions in their FAQs. So that's a little weird.

What is a clean driving record?

They claim you need a clean driving record but they don't really elaborate on what that means. If you've had a minor fender bender in the past, are you disqualified? Or maybe you have a heavy foot and have received a few speeding tickets back in the day. Does that work against you as well? Again this is one of those situations where Carvertise fails to provide us information to determine if it's even worth trying.

It's not a full time income

Even if you can get a maximum campaign of 6 months with Carvertise, it's still not a full time income for most people. So if your goal is to totally replace what you make, then this isn't for you.

Carvertise Review Conclusion: Is it legit or a scam?

Based on my team's research it appears that Carvertise is the real deal and legit. The drivers are getting paid consistently without any delays or any other issues from what we can tell. Ultimately if you meet the qualifications and don't mind leaving your home to make some cash, it's not a bad way to earn extra income. But this opportunity still relies on you being picked to driver. So it's not something you really have much control over if you're looking for consistent income. That might be a deal breaker for some of you. Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts about this company so leave a comment down below. Don't be shy, I don't bite and want to hear from you.

Do You Want A Carvertise Alternative?

Some of you may have been a little disappointed with the Carvertise opportunity? If that's you there is no need to fret. There are other ways you can earn a real income right from home. It doesn't require a car or leaving your house. What it does require is patience, a willingness to learn and hard work. I'm sure for most of you these are requirements you probably posses already. If so, I would encourage you to look into my Top Free Work At Home Recommendation. It's what's helped me earn a full time income from home that didn't require leaving my house. So check it out because it may help you do the same.

But I'd be lying if I claimed this is the only way I earn my income from home. I actually have other ways that I use which I teach in my Work At Home Courses because I'm a big believer in multiple streams of income. Why just have one source of income that can be wiped away when you can have various sources coming in. If you see the logic in that thought process, then be sure to check out my work at home courses as well.

In any event, I hope you have found this review on Carvertise useful. If so feel free to chime in down below as you leave. But I'm done yapping on my end. I hope to see you back soon.

  1. big commitments such as running the carvertise application which uses GPS location of yours in my phone all day long + Early Termination fees of $300 etc . FOR LOUSY $100 A MONTH. No thanks!

  2. This concept was blinked few years ago, but till the time it has been not implemented. Let me ask you one question advertising on car is legal? Answer is Big NO. You can not advertise or change the colour of your car without permission of RTO. Or else RTO will start sending challan for breaking the rule everyday..
    It’s either scan or lack of
    legal knowledge.

  3. So just rec’d a check in the mail…$2900+…. supposed to cash check keep 1st weeks payment of $500 & use rest to pay the car wrapper???🤔. Sounds “scammy” to me?!?!

  4. I just clicked on the carvertise link and got the message “Page Not Found”. Thought you might want to know. Whats the Website box for?

  5. Hi, I just applied to carvertise, I’m pretty sure I’ll qualify due to several factors. I will write an update here cause I saved you to my home screen on phone. And thanks for only putting up products you personally believe in . There are so many out there that just do it for the money and don’t care about others and their ability to make an informed decision. Sincerely Kellene

  6. Hi Eddy,
    I got contacted from Carvertise though email, I never went to there website to ask about there car wrap advertising. but I did answer there email to see about the information that they need from me, two days later they sent me another email asking information about my car, but after reading all the reviews I don’t think I going to go though with the company, plus me car is 1994 mustang its to old and i don’t drive that much mileage.


    • It’s weird you would be emailed without ever showing any interest. Chances are it may be people trying to pose as Carvertise trying to scam you. So it’s good you’re not going forward with it.

  7. I received an email from Anton F. Parker, asking for my mailing address. I later received a check for 1,950.00 in the mail. Next they sent a text asking when could I deposit into my account. I was then told to deduct first week salary of $500 from the payment and extra $50 for running around. Send the $1,400 for the specialist assigned for the wrap on your car. I was told the specialist request the payment made via digital currency. So walk into the nearest store to purchase 14 pieces of iTunes card ($100 denominations). Scratch them to reveal the pin and send the pics to him. Then let them know my convenient date and time for branding. This seems all kind of wrong and illegal.

  8. Found this and was surprised at all the Different comments re:CARVERTISE. Just jumped on this deal and will give you ALL updates starting with pictures of envelope and check and info about company that I received Today 11/21/2018. Let’s help each other out when were able to stop the Bad Guys!

  9. Did a Carvertise campaign. They shorted me one months pay. The also cut the campaign short by a month meaning I actually lost 2 months pay. They also got a free week beyond that due to how they pro-rate their pay… if you get the wrap in the middle of the month, that doesn’t count, has to be from beginning to end. Further, after working with them for over a month I got another job offer from them for the same campaign? And was solicited to find other potential representatives, I supplied them with info and those who provided their info also initiated contact; there was never a response.
    So, yeah, it’s a real company and you can get paid… however, I would use the term Buyer Beware. Also, they take your credit card info under the pretense of you not showing up for the wrap they paid to put on your car… still waiting to see if I’m a victim of credit card fraud.

  10. Hey! Does anyone have knowledge on the driving record aspect of Carvertise? Had some incidents when I was younger: tickets, fender benders but I haven’t but had a my last minor ticket in three+ years and my last accident was so long ago I can tell remember. This is so anecdotal I shouldn’t use it as evidence, but I drove from Iowa to Seattle the other week with my dad caravaninf behind me and he didn’t complain once about my driving. He actually called all my relatives to rave about me. It seem a harsh to penalize people for having annnny record.

    Your insight is greatly appreciated!

    Also the site says a car 2008 or newer and here it says 2005 or newer? Has someone here spoke directly with a rep?

  11. Hey Eddy, with a y… I too answered an email/ad for doing a Carvertise & a person named Melinda Scott (got name only after asking about 100 times…probably isn’t real)..anyway, I received a “check” in the mail today for $2050.00, after I had received text msgs telling me it was on the way. When I opened the USPS Priority envelope, there was “JUST” the check…no paperwork? I texted that I’d rcvd it & they asked when I could deposit the check into my account? I told the “person”? That I was NOT going to deposit the “CHECK” n2 MY account but rather WOULD CASH it. .no response?!?… well, this “CHECK” is made ON a “CHECK” from Apple Texas Restaurants, INC.. as far as I know, there are none of these, nor any affiliates, in UTAH (where I live)… AND, the return address on the USPS Priority envelope is… Independence High School in San Jose, CA?
    WTH, right?!? Thank you for your time! Dwight

    • I don’t think this website is the same that contacted you Dwight… Because the actual Carvertise doesn’t send out emails to random people, you have to apply first. Also they don’t ask you to pay anything to them. I think a scammer used Carvertise’s name so you would think they were legit. Good looking out though. I have experience with scammers and although I think this company might jip people some money but they are not scammers.

  12. I can see where the thought of this may be a tad overwhelming as an hourly rate.

    But if you already drive that mileage to and from work, it would be like $100/month free gas money. I drive about 36-40 miles/day round trip just to work… if you don’t normally drive anywhere near that amount, no, I agree it’s likely not a good fit.

    Thinking about signing up and seeing what’s available in my cities.

  13. I was totally scammed by someone representing Carvertise. They sent me a fraudulent check that bounced and attempted to get me to advance $1500 cash to wrap the car. Emails are not answered and the phone number is never answered. Beware! A total scam .

  14. Hey all
    Wow $100 a mont for 700 miles of drdrivin you figure your not going to be averaging 60 mph maybe 45 at tops.
    700í·45= 15 hours
    Thats almost $7.00 per hour.
    Plus you have to pay for your gas minumim of $40
    So your making $60 for 15 hours of yoir time.
    Do the math
    Its $4.00 per hour
    Come on people
    Thats ridiculous! !!

    • That’s an interesting breakout of the math. I don’t know if it’s totally accurate. But I agree that you really have to figure out the math to determine if it’s worth it for you. It may not be for everyone. So I agree with you there.

  15. Hi, I found your site through a Google search. I was a driver for Carvertise in the past and I was searching to see what they were up to.

    I first read about Carvertise when I was driving behind one of their cars and read a bumper sticker. I signed up and was selected for a campaign. I have driven for different campaigns (different lengths of time) over the past 2 years.

    Sometimes they are looking for drivers who drive in certain areas. Imagine a small company that is based in Wilmington and serves only Wilmington. I assume that company would want a driver who is in Wilmington (and not Dover or Milford in my example.)

    I drive a lot because I am self-employed and because I visit my parents often. I am getting paid to do what I am doing already. That extra $100 a month comes in handy. I am paid with direct deposit and am notified by email. It’s not just the money – it’s actually a lot of fun and you meet a lot of people. A child on my street said I had the “Coolest car ever” because I had “stickers on my car.”

    I once had an issue with some small chips of paint that came off. I mention it only because it was brought up here. In my case, I can say that it was 100% the fault of my car and not Carvertise. It was immediately brought to my attention. It was presented professionally and with great concern for my car. In my case I did not need repairs and I did not need to repaint my car. (As I re-read this I realized that happened on my first campaign. I liked how I was treated and I continued to other campaigns over two years. Think about what that says about a company.)

    To answer a previous question – your car has a wrap that covers at least the sides of your car and sometimes the whole car. So you can only do one campaign at a time.

    Carvertise works perfectly for me. Someday I hope to drive for them again. They started with a few employees and they are growing. I have met five of the employees through phone calls and personal conversations at the wraps. They are really hard working and busy. If I had any problems, I would realize they might need a little extra time to reply.

    • Hey Peggy,

      Thanks for sharing your positive experience. I think it really put this opportunity in perspective for people that are on the fence. So thanks for chiming in. We appreciate it.

  16. I personally do not recommend Carvertise. My husband just finished one of their campaigns but when the wrap was removed it ripped paint off the car. When he emailed them, they ignored the email and then claimed they never received it until I reviewed them on Facebook. They literally sent us an email saying they would send us a check to repair the car if I took my review down, blackmailing me. They have been rude to me on the phone and now blocked me on FB. I was just trying to get their attention, nicely.

    So, be warned, everyone, and think twice before you allow a company to use your vehicle because you may be out a lot of money

  17. I wonder if they refund gas money. If you are legitimatly a stay at home mom then driving just to do the job but not getting gas money back just seems like its putting miles on your car for nothing really. But if you do that much because of your job etc. Then it would be worth it. Just curious?

    • Hi Tash,

      I don’t think it works like that. This is designed for people that already drive regularly. You’re just earning extra money for something you’d be doing anyway. So that’s how this is viewed.

  18. I went with them after reading this post and a few others that helped convince me that this company is reputable. It was a little disorganized getting going, almost unprofessional at times, but never felt shady. There were a couple hundred more dollars available for specific campaign actions or attendance once the car was wrapped and I’m getting $125 a month. All told it’s hardly “worth it” as a serious supplemental income, but I’m commuting most days anyway so I figured why not…

  19. I read that you make about $100 a month with carvertise that’s not very much considering you have to drive at least 25 miles a day is there potential to earn more

  20. Hi Eddy, I gotta say I love your site man.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of Carvertise. Seems like a very unique opportunity with an interesting motif.

    Are there any other requirements besides a clean record? I mean like age or minimum driver license acquirement?

    Thank you in advance

    • Thanks George.

      I would definitely assume that you kneed a drivers license and need to be of age otherwise how else can you drive around. lol

  21. I love the site. I have never heard of Carvertise before, it sounds like something I would be interested in. Is there a limit to the amount of ads you can do at a time? And I love the set up of your site very easy for me to navigate from my IPhone.

    • Hey Kev,

      I’m not really sure how many ads you can do at a time. You would probably have to visit their website to get that info. Thanks for the kind words on my site.

  22. This totally works for me! I am a delivery driver so I definitely drive a lot and my driving record was clean enough for them, so hopefully it will be for this too. I have a 2012 Kia so they should be okay with my car too. I’ll let you know how that goes for me – if they approve me and how quickly they pay. I also took a look at your work at home post and will be back to try that out too!

    • Oh that’s great Donna! Please let me know how it goes and report back. I would love to hear your experience. Feel free to share this article with anyone else you think would be interested.

  23. Hi Eddy,
    Sounds like Carvertise has a very specific model of person in mind. It’s a good idea for stay at home moms who are always out and about doing errands and taking children everywhere. I’ve seen a few of these around and it seems legit. It wouldn’t be a sole source of income though, I agree with you, I think we can have many sources. It’s definitely a more secure way of having financial stability. I don’t think Carvertise is for me, but I sure admire Mac Nagaswami for the ingenous idea! Cheers!

    • Hey Tami,

      I agree with you. This definitely seems more ideal for a stay at home mom who’s running around all day doing errands. So that actually makes sense. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and insight. I appreciate it!
