Boundary hulog is a term used to describe the process of acquiring a vehicle by paying regular monthly, weekly, or daily dues for a given period of time. This is a very popular term, especially for Grab drivers who wish to acquire a car without the need for securing a loan from the bank. After all the dues have been paid, the ownership of the vehicle will be transferred from the operator to the Grab driver. This term is also becoming popular in Ankgas world because some of them could not secure a loan.

With prices of goods rising each and every year, more and more Filipinos are searching for ways to make more money. The good news is, the Philippine economy is also improving and this improvement is creating more opportunities for the people.
One of the popular ways that Pinoys are exploring right now is the use of a motorcycle. In this blog post, we’ve come up with a list of ideas on how you can earn money using a motorcycle. Here is what you need to know:
1. Motorcycle Rental
A motorcycle rental business is fairly simple. The owner of the motorcycle can make money when someone rents the vehicle over an agreed period of time. There are 3 different ways to do this business
Use the vehicle as tricycle – This is the old way to make money using a motorcycle. This works by attaching a sidecar to your vehicle and using the motorcycle to transport passengers. You earn by collecting a rental fee from the driver or you can drive it yourself during your free time.
Regular Motorcycle Rental – In the province, there are motorcycle rental companies that charge 150 Pesos per day as rental fees for the motorcycle. Gas is not included yet. If you are in Metro Manila, you can also do the same and charge at a higher price.
Rent it to motorcycle taxi drivers – This is the newest way to make money using your motorcycle. There are companies these days which help you find your passengers using a mobile app. You earn by fetching and transporting your passengers to their desired destination. Among the popular companies that offer this kind of service are Angkas, JoyRide, GrabBike and Move It.
2. Door to Door Delivery
Another popular way to make money using a motorcycle is by providing door-to-door delivery service. A few years ago, finding clients for this kind of business is close to impossible. Nowadays, there are mobile apps like Lalamove,Angkas Padala, GrabExpress which makes it easier for you to find your own clients. You need to sign up first as a driver before you can use the app. Each mobile app has a different process and we will discuss it on a separate blog post.
3. Food Delivery
Just like door-to-door package delivery, food delivery is becoming popular these days. People nowadays prefer to order food using a mobile phone and eat at the comfort of their home. Like door-to-door delivery, you can register as a service provider and make money each time you completed a transaction. You can choose from a variety of food delivery companies like Lalafood, FoodPanda, Zomato, Mangan.ph, and Grab Food.
4. Motorcycle Taxi
If you are familiar with GrabCar, Motorcycle Taxis like Angkas, JoyRide and Move it is basically the same except that it uses motorcycles instead of cars to transport passengers. The fare that the passengers pay depends on the distance between their pick-up point and their drop-off point.
Motorcycle accidents are one of the most tragic yet relevant news that we see and hear on the news almost every day. This calls for a need for driving lessons offered by professional trainers. You can apply to a company where they offer courses in motorcycle driving. Yamaha Motor Philippines has a Riding Academy that teaches safe motorcycle driving. They teach you different field exercises like how to pull the brake and the likes. They also teach you important lessons that most drivers often fail to follow. In order for you to make money, you can apply as a trainer.
Another way to do this is to offer driving lessons as a freelancer. You can start offering your service to your friends and ask for referrals to grow this business.
Motorcycle tours can be very exciting and thrilling. A bike tour allows you to travel to different destinations and get paid by guiding other bikers on their journey. You get paid for every biker that will join your tour. This is not a popular business opportunity yet here in the country but in the future, we know it will. You can explore this kind of business and tell us about your experience.
Last year, Move It Mototaxi and JoyRide Philippines were gaining traction from the public after being announced that they will be part of LTFRB’s experiment that will test the viability of having motorcycles as a means of public transportation. Minutes after the announcement, thousands of interested drivers were looking for Move It Mototaxi Driver RegistrationProcess on the internet.

It is important to know that only the operator whose name appears in the vehicle’s ORCR can proceed with the LTFRB TNVS application. This means that all requirements and information that will be provided should be in the name of the vehicle owner.

For now, time to celebrate your CPC! Congrats!!!
I’ve been in the Grabcar business since 2017. During that time, the LTFRB doesn’t care much about TNVS industry and other ride-sharing platforms. The driver’s income was also higher because Uber and Grab are still competing with one another. As of this writing, I am still operating my business but this time I already have my franchise issued by the LTFRB which allow me to legally operate my business. This business is not easy to operate but it is very rewarding. Allow me to share with you my learning as a Grabcar peer (operator).
My First Encounter with TNVS
My first encounter with TNVS was with Uber when I became its passenger. The first thing that comes to my mind when I first used Uber is that it is very convenient but it was very expensive too! The cost of the ride from Mandaluyong to Makati was around 500 Pesos. Despite the cost, I still felt that it was worth it because it is really very convenient. I didn’t need to wait too long to get a ride. I’ve been trying to hail a taxi but they kept refusing to give me a ride. It was then that I realized that TNVS is a good business venture.
Buying a car
The first car that I bought for TNVS business was a brand new Mitsubishi Mirage G4 2017. There are 4 reasons why I chose this car and these are:
It is fuel-efficient
It has low monthly amortization (12,987 Pesos per month)
It is affordable to repair
The replacement parts are easier to find
Fuel efficiency is very important in this kind of business. As we all know, the price of gasoline in the Philippines is very expensive and it continues to go up every year. In order to increase the income of your driver, your car must be fuel-efficient. If your driver will not earn, then your driver might quit if he doesn’t find driving profitable.
Amortization Cost is your biggest expense every month. Buying a car that have higher amortization cost doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t intend to use the car personally so I didn’t consider buying a fancier car. The lower the amortization cost, the easier it is to profit from the business. PERIOD.
Repair and maintenance cost is also a regular expense that you have to shoulder every month. I make sure I regularly change the oil to keep the engine running in good condition. I also make sure that the mechanic checks all possible damages so that we can repair it immediately. Mitsubishi auto parts are cheaper that is why my repairs and maintenance cost is lower compared to other TNVS operators who are using another brand of cars (except for Toyota of course).
Replacement parts for Mitsubishi Mirage are easier to find too! Since the car will be used almost every day, wear and tear of the auto parts are inevitable. I need to be sure that I can easily find the replacement parts.
Grabcar Operating Cost
LOOK! There are many things that you need to prepare for so make sure you handle your finances effectively. When I was just starting, I used all the money that I earned and didn’t save much for emergencies. I almost lost the car when it had to be repaired due to an accident and I don’t have many funds to pay for the amortization. LESSON LEARNED. Avoid this mistake if I were you. There are also other things that you need to prepare for. Below is a list of my expenses and my operating cost for Grabcar:
Amortization Cost: 13,000 Pesos per month
Maintenance Cost: 2000 to 5000 Pesos per month (depends if I need to repair something)
Comprehensive Insurance Cost for TNVS: 1000 Pesos per month (for 12 months)
My total monthly operating cost is from 17,000 to 20,000 Pesos per month excluding expenses for car registration with LTO and LTFRB franchise.
Grabcar Operator’s Income
For an operator collecting 1,000 Pesos per day, his gross monthly income will reach 26,000 Pesos. We assume that the operator is not collecting boundaries during coding days of the car. With a monthly expense of 17,000 to 20,000 Pesos, the net profit would be 6,000 to 9,000 Pesos. In most cases, this income is not enough for sustaining the whole family but this is good enough to cover some regular expenses like electricity, water or maybe groceries.
17,000 to 20,000 Pesos
6,000 to 9,000 Pesos
Personally, I don’t earn that much but I am happy with what I am getting. If the operational cost is high, your net profit will be low as well. If you have 3 cars, I can say that the earnings are decent enough to support some of your expenses. Having 3 cars is like having an apartment that earns 18,000 Pesos to 27,000 Pesos per month.
Your Grab Driver
Your Grab car driver is the key ingredient to the success of your business. Before you allow him to drive for Grab, secure valid government ID, proof of residency and NBI clearance for security measures. You are paying hard-earned money for your car so it is just right to make sure that you entrust your car to someone you did a background check.
Next, let driver operate his own business. What is important to you is that you get paid and that he doesn’t use your car illegally. Allow him to provide other services using your car. He is doing this so that he can feed his family and also, to pay the regular boundary. If you don’t trust him at all with your car, then don’t let him drive in the first place.
To increase your success in the business, make sure that you compensate your driver well. In my business, I make sure that my driver earns more than what I earn. After all, he does all the hard work. I also included benefits that he can use in the future. For instance, after 5 years of his commitment to me, I will give him the car. This is called boundary hulog for Grab Driver. This benefit increases the likelihood that your driver will stay with you longer and it is both beneficial to you and your driver. Lastly, your driver is your business partner – always remember that!
Secrets to Success
VERY IMPORTANT: Take care of your driver. Your driver is the key to success of your business. Take care of him and he’ll take care of your business in return. Treat him fair and square at all times.
Install a GPS. Buying a car is a huge investment especially for ordinary people like me. Having a GPS installed increases your car’s security feature.
Buy an insurance that covers vehicles used for TNVS. Some insurance companies does not cover vehicles used for TNVS.
To become an operator for Grabcar or Grabpremium in the Philippines, an applicant must submit all the Grabcar requirements first. Along the with these requirements, your vehicle model should not be older than three (3) years. It is also worth noting that Grab does not accept vans and pick-ups for their ride hailing service.
