As well as becoming a Storemate, there are many fantastic ways that you can make money from your assets when you're not using them. In this post we show how you can turn your car into a nice little earner with easyCar Club.
easyCar Club is the UK’s peer-to-peer car rental marketplace, connecting people who need a car with people who aren’t always using theirs. Renter membership is completely free, and owners can list their car for free too. Private car owners are able to offset the cost of their car, whilst renters get better prices for car hire than conventional car clubs and hire companies. Last year, they also released their free iPhone app, which allows members to access all of the features of the site on the go.
Benefits for Car Owners
Renting out your car through easyCar Club can earn you over £125 per car, per month, with some top owners earning more than double that figure. You have the ability to set your own pricing or to follow the market rate, so you’ll always get the price you want for your car. They also have a number of ways of ensuring the rental goes smoothly:
- Comprehensive insurance cover.
- Free RAC roadside assistance and recovery cover for your car, even when you’re not renting it out.
- Driver vetting for peace of mind.
- Secure booking and payment processing – including a deposit to protect you in the case of any unforseen issues.
Since joining easyCar Club, Shuaib has made around £1,500 by renting out his car to members in his area. He chooses his availability through the site and uses a Key Safe which enables him to rent out his car even when he’s not home. He stores his keys in the securely locked safe, provided free by easyCar Club, which can then be accessed with a one-time use code sent to the renter when they arrive.
Shuaib says “It’s a convenient way of making money from my car when I’m not using it. As well as going toward my annual insurance and maintenance, the extra disposable income really comes in handy.”
Benefits for Car Renters
Renting out a car from a member of the club offers great value rental, with cars available to rent from just £20 per day. Rental prices with easyCar Club are up to 50% cheaper than other car clubs at weekends, and up to 20% cheaper than traditional car rental companies. They ensure the best deals for renters with:
- No annual subscription or sign-up fee.
- No hidden charges.
- Free RAC roadside assistance and recovery – for peace of mind.
