Relay Rides? (Posted on 1/7/13 at 1:06 am)
Basically a site that lets people rent your car from you.
"Unlike traditional car rental services, RelayRides neither owns the vehicles nor maintains them. Rather, they are offering a platform for car owners and renters to connect generating scalability and lower pricing." They provide a platform that tracks the cars and matches prospective borrowers to car owners. RelayRides covers $1 million worth of insurance for vehicles during the rental period, and performs basic background checks of vehicle registration and safety, as well as renters’ safety records, to lessen the likelihood of complications between the owner and borrower of the vehicle. People who wish to profit from their cars while they're not being used can register the cars online to be borrowed by other RelayRides members. Before the car can be lent to other RelayRides members, however, the company installs a device in the car, which controls and locks the car's ignition, so that only registered and approved RelayRiders can drive the car. To make the car available, a car owner that has signed up for RelayRides signs onto the network and states the time and place where the car will be available. A member who wishes to borrow a car will reserve a specific time slot for the car online, and pays for the amount of time they signed up for. The user will then find the car parked at the place specified online and marked with a RelayRides logo. In order to unlock and drive the car, members must swipe their membership card over the installed RelayRides device.
Thinking about doing it, don't use my car much now that I live within biking distance to most things I need to go to.
Wonder how much of a hassle it really is and if people driving my car would end up doing more damage to it then it is worth.
I know people are on here asking about ways to make extra cash.
