I have A LOT of customers that do it for extra money but the checks they regularly bring in are usually under a hundred bucks. If you're gonna do it you'd have to treat it like a full time job, maybe find a specialty, and understand you probably aren't going to get rich. And you'll need a pretty serious beater truck. That stuff is heavy. Also, there's no benefits so you'll have to insure your family third party.

There are several problem areas:
1. Hard to determine value of many of the items.....pricing.
2. Need to have a fairly large lot and original amount of capital. Those types of places always have a lot of inventory.
3. Location needs to be accessible to many people.
4. Start up costs can get expensive.....advertising, etc.
5. Basic bookkeeping is fairly easy and inexpensive with Quickbooks but keeping up with inventory can be a problem.
6. Best to set up single member LLC, very easy and inexpensive.
7. Is co-worker going to be an owner or employee....if he's an owner, that makes the legal issues much more complicated.
These are just a few issues you need to address.
