Car Next Door connects individuals wanting to rent their vehicles on an hourly or daily basis to other trusted registered users of the service. Since their first booking at Christmas 2012, the business has grown to 16,000 approved borrowers and 430 cars in Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle and has plans to expand to 10,000 vehicles by 2020.
Many people have a car (or two) that will be sitting idle at various times, perhaps on the weekend when it’s not needed for work commute, or during the holidays when they are overseas. Other people may need a car for a short term.
Car owners register their cars and set a price and availability. After registering themselves on the website, users select and book the car they want to use.
Car Next Door matches people with a ‘have’ (an idle car) with people with a ‘need’ (someone that needs a car for a short term or once every now and then).
