As a company that has been working in the field of shared mobility for the last few years, we have realized that it has become a buzzword. But, we know for a fact that Shared Mobility is here to stay. In this economy of shared resources, we thought of sharing cars with minimal spending. So we devised a product named Mobokey remote car access, enables peer-to-peer car sharing.
Why do we focus on Peer-to-Peer car sharing?
First, let’s understand the concept of this peer-to-peer car sharing. Also known as person-to-person car-sharing allows a person or car rental to rent their car for a short period.
An issue that occurs while renting a car is the sharing of keys. We realized the potential of this problem early on and tried to provide a solution to cater to the problem of key sharing within our product. Peer-to-peer car sharing coupled with our solution is enabling single users and rental car companies to generate extra revenue without going through the hassle of getting the keys copied.
When we are talking about the economics of peer-to-peer car sharing, there are certain costs that the owner has to bear, including the cost of technology. The technology cost initially might have been $500-$700 but with our device, it is down $150. And in that price, we are offering a complete sharing platform from access to setting a time and even the access level. Katie Fehrenbacher in here report on the Economics of peer-to-peer car-sharing did mention the fact.
We are slowly getting with more car rental companies on board with us and making sure that they get more by paying less with Mobokey.
Turo hosts and Mobokey
With our Mobokey’s car-sharing platform, the efficiency of the system is enhanced and moves to a whole new level. This is why many Turo hosts have reached for our platform to increase efficiency. We allow them to create ease in two very crucial steps. These steps make car sharing even easier.
These two steps are picking the car and returning the car.
With our car-sharing platform, Turo hosts can send out multiple digital keys to multiple users for designated time slots and by setting up a specific time limit they’ll know the exact usage of the vehicle. This feature paves a perfect path for car-sharing businesses like Turo hosts. We already have some Turo hosts signed up for our solution.
How does Mobokey’s remote car access help Turo Hosts?
Once the car is listed in the Turo App, the host will have to get our device installed. You can read more about the conventional way of Turo sharing here.
What we do, is allow the hosts and the client with ease by giving out a digital key. How?
Because This is what WE do. Read more here.
Picking up the car: With Mobokey, the host does not need to meet with the client and share the car and keys without any hassle whatsoever. The host shares the coordinates of the car and gives the time limit. And share just the way sharing works with Mobokey.
Returning the car: The access is revoked from the customer and the location is updated when the client disconnects from the car after the time is over. This makes life easier for both the guest and the host.
