Please nairalanders, advise me on this issue, I am thinking of a business to do but am confuse, I was thinking of opening a restaurant in a good location but my very good friend who is a bolt driver is advising me to buy a used Toyota car and register it under bolt and start driving.

If you will get a very good location with less competitors, I'd say go for the restaurant.

The current situation of the country has made uber/bolt less lucrative and car hijack, accidents are other things you should consider before venturing into the uber/bolt business but Good luck with whichever you take sha.

Make sure it is not a Nigerian used. Speaking from experience here.

Bolt pays! It's a good business and I am going into it too.

Bolt/Uber isn't bad


But make sure you leave your heart at home whenever you're going out so you won't feel pained when those loose girls lash you with their mouth


Also have little knowledge about lagos road network before you go around 1 place in 3times, rider fit kill you with insults if you don't know faster route.


And my advise, always drive gently.

The work is lucrative if you set your mind on a target and don't be greedy, when you're tired, pls go home and sleep....


Avoid areas like
Satellite
Ojo
Agbara
Badagry
Epe
Ikorodu
Apapa
Agbado
Sango
Anywhere after long bridge
Festac
Ikotun, abranje side.



No fear, when you start, in your 1st month, you will be able to decide whether to continue or quit.

No hustle is easy.....if e easy, na setup. If your love driving or enjoy car race game while young then you may enjoy the hustle more. If your hobby is driving then you dont have to work, just have fun on the wheels and make money.
