This week, it was announced that car rental firm, Fleet, has come to market. Claiming to offer an innovative way for people to hire cars, the creators have formed an app that connects renters with owners. Telling that owners that they can make up to £1000 per month for listing their car with them, it is understandable why everyone is talking about this innovative new business.
Already being made use of in the north of the country, big name brand, Shelbourne Motor Group, has now signed up.
In addition to interest from car and fleet owners, the site is gathering momentum from users. According to the business owners, they have enjoyed 25,000 new downloads and 14,000 active users, now boasting 346 listings on www.jointhefleet.com.
Inspired by the great things Airbnb has achieved, business owner, Mr Sheehy, says:
Mr Sheehy said it was always the plan to set up in Northern Ireland and explained how he has drawn inspiration from worldwide accommodation leader Airbnb.
“Fleet was developed when we saw a gap for this type of service in the market. Peer to peer services of many varieties have taken off in Ireland and worldwide especially after the success of Airbnb and we saw the opportunity to help make our customers cars work harder for them and earn them money whilst providing a cost effective alternative to traditional car rental platforms who have higher price points, overheads and red tape. It was always a goal to set up our service in Northern Ireland as soon as possible and try to cover the whole island of Ireland.”
