So I'm thinking of going back to delivery driving but I'm using my car as a billboard for my new business (it has a giant car wrap). Am I allowed to delivery drive it that way? Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the Board!

Some places, especially most (but not all) big3 stores will flat out not allow it. Indy stores may be more likely to allow it. What kind of business does it advertise?

It's a lawn care business and has a giant lawnmower on the sides and back. By big3 you mean PH, PJs, and Dominos?

Well, that might not be so bad since the big3 (PH, DP and PJ) don't mow laws... yet! :lol:

That said, you can't really know until you ask. If it was for any sort of competing food business, then the answer would almost certainly be no. Lawn care is a toss up. Some may have no problem at all and others my have a cow over it. As I said before, the big3 stores are the most likely to say no, and the indy stores most likely to say yes. Franchise stores may go either way. Perhaps you should just apply and not mention the wrap at all.

Let us know what you decide to do and how it works out!

It is my understanding that most of the Big3 (corp or franchise) will not allow any advertising on your car. Even small ads for say a home business (like Amway) are frowned upon.

If I was an owner of a pizza shop, I would not allow it. I can't see anyone else giving it a free pass.

...but you really never know until you ask!
