Andrew M.asked

I am looking to rent my car on this site in Adelaide and noticed that there only seems to be about 20 cars and only 1 available? Does that mean this service in not in much demand in Adelaide.

Hi Andrew, we would suggest listing your car. We will call you and walk you through the process and pricing. If your car is well priced and in a good central location it could do well due to the fact that there are not a lot of cars available in Adelaide.

Hi Chinku, the process is relatively easy right up until something goes wrong (read my review First and last time renter). I have had to resort to small claims court as not all of the repair costs were covered. We originally thought this would be a good way to earn some extra money and it is , right up until DMC decide they dont want to help.

Kees

Keesasked

Hi Team,

If I want to rent a car from Thurday to Monday, will I be able to pick the car up at 9am on Thursday and return it on Monday at 5pm? Also, on the day of pick up, will the process be quick and efficient or will I have to spend more time to do all the paperworks since I assume the paperworks should be done beforehand as I will book it online and you will have all the documents you need.

And also, I have read your reviews, and though most of them are great but few are a bit stressing me out as I won't be able to imagine if on the day I cannot get a car that's been confirmed.

If you can respond on Monday, I'll go ahead and book it for April 6th-April 10th.

Thank you kindly

Hi Kees, no need to be stressed out. Once a car is confirmed you will rent that car. Handover takes less than 10 minutes. As for your dates, you will need to check the minimum rental period for the car you would like to rent as most are minimum 7 days. Please email sales@drivemycar.com.au or call us on 1300 980 706 if there is anything else we can help with.

Hi Nigel, we have been busy chasing the owners for you. As your booking is a few months away it can take a little longer to confirm. We will have a confirmation for you today.

Dazken Amacasked

Hi if I rent out my car for a period of 4 months under the manage my car portal for you to manage, how will I earn money.?
U charge 8 aud for everyday the car is not used, when you use the car u charge 10% of the income. ..
Moreover how do I know if the car is being used or not & that I am not being charged 8 aud daily incorrectly.
Can I track my car or do I get an sms notification when it's rented out?
What if for 4 months it doesn't go at all

Also is there a minimum time frame for manage my car?
Incase we need to extend is it possible and if so how much notice do you require?

DriveMyCar T.Drive My Car

HI Dazken,

Your car is listed on the DriveMyCar website and we manage all the handovers for you. That’s correct parking and insurance is $8 per day if the car not out on rental. DriveMyCar only earns money when your car is out on rental. You can check you rentals at anytime by logging into the My Account section of the website.

Have a chat with our fleet team to determine the best rate for your car, the likelihood of it being rented and how ManageMyCar works. You can extend any time by letting us know as soon as you know, there is no fee for listing your car with us and no minimum period, however the longer the period the better the rental options will be for you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards

The DriveMyCar Team.

Hi,team,
I'm looking at using my car for hiring out. Can you tell me the procedure to do so and how do I find out if there is a demand in Sydney and what sort of consistency is to be expected?

It's fairly straight forward, although does mix online with traditional paper based forms. Depending on the car, you may get requests ranging from a week up to a month. Other than being available to pick up/ drop off - it's very much like lending the car to a friend, except you get paid, and have to fill in paperwork each time. Just hope you don't have any issues with the car afterwards as the process is quite onerous.

Drive My Car
DriveMyCar T.Drive My Car

Hi Dinah, simply visit our website and list your car. Our fleet manager will give you a call to run through the specifics. There is strong demand in Sydney at the moment so your car should be rented out very often. If you have any questions, please call us on 1300 980 706.
