MoboKey is a key proponent to enable peer-to-peer car sharing for everyone! Our car-sharing platform allows you to share your car with anyone you want. Simply park your car and send a digital key of your car and location to anyone you choose. They can come and pick up the car after you have left by using MoboKey.
Peer-to-peer car sharing
Peer-to-peer carsharing (also known as person-to-person carsharing and peer-to-peer car rental) is the process whereby existing car owners make their vehicles available for others to rent for short periods. There are other forms of car sharing as well. And MoboKey is helping everyone to enable car sharing. This includes corporate clients, Turo hosts, car rental companies, etc.
Corporate car sharing
Extraordinary changes were made by the corporate after COVID-19. This is the reason which made them invest heavily in car sharing. Pre-COVID, their employee used local transport. Therefore, these companies have started to develop or have already developed their platforms. These platforms enable car sharing with employees hence reducing exposure. MoboKey has helped these companies to enable car sharing internally.
Car sharing for Turo
Car Sharing is also for the Turo fleet. MoboKey allows the Turo hosts to share their fleet without any interaction. The renter will sign up on the MoboKey app and our car-sharing platform will provide access to the renter via our app.
Micromobility, which is ‘the ability of movement through minimalistic means’, on short distances, using light vehicles, such as scooters, longboards, and bikes, is another emerging and significant trend, especially in overcrowded cities. This segment of shared mobility is also taking on MoboKey to enable access for their customers.
Companies are taking advantage of product testing and data opportunities. Just like MoboKey, companies have started to provide components for fleet vehicles. Hence, employing shared mobility to test technologies and components and gain access to customer data, where legally permissible.
Steps involved in enabling Car Sharing for your fleet
Enabling Car Sharing for your fleet could be challenging but MoboKey irons some kinks. Some key elements are a must for Car Sharing.
MoboKey allows you to share the car for a set amount of time. The owner/admin sets the start and ends times for the rental period.
In a car rental company, there is one station where all the cars are parked and the customers have to come to that specific location and get the car from there. Whereas in car-sharing, there can be multiple stations all over the country, if not the city, where a car can be parked and picked up from. With MoboKey, we save the parked location of the car and this location is shared when the car is shared.
Managing cars is one thing but a fee structure is the most important matter of discussion. While deciding on a fee structure, make sure that you account for the time, fuel, and distance driver. It could be a little more expensive than a basic car rental agreement but you are providing a lot of things in return for that money. You can also manage the fee manually.
App-based car sharing
To make a journey pleasant you have to make sure that your customer is not hassled by small things. The most hassling part of any car rental agreement is key sharing. You can use MoboKey to manage the time, access, and virtual key. It is to make sure that the customers’ mind is at ease.
