What is Turo?
A peer to peer car sharing marketplace that allows people to make money buy renting out their car to other drivers.
How It Works?
To rent on Turo you will ned to sign up on their website. The Company checks and validates each driver and car owner before they can rent from the marketplace. The car owners then set the car's price, location and information. Renters can explore available cars, and browse the other renters comments and ratings.
Turo allows gas, hybrid, or electic vehicles that can carry eight or fewer passengers. In some regions they allow trucks, cargo vans, specialty vehicles, and classic cars. The company doesn't allow motorcyles, RVs, and other select vehicles which can be found here.
They also have an exclusivity policy, which means you can only list your vehicle on their platform. If your vehicle is hosted on other rental sites you will receive fines and penalties.
The requirements your vehicle must meet to be approved:
Unique Vehicle Identification Number
Registered in the United States, except New York
No more than 12 years old
Vehicle is insured
Fair market value of up to $150,000
Fewer than 130,000 miles
Has never been totaled
Follows maintenance guidelines
Listing Your Vehicle
Listing your vehicle on Turo is quite simple. First you will need to create an account which will require you to provide the following information:
Last four digits of your SSN
Photo of yourself
Valid car insurance
License plate number
Vehicle make, model, and year
After you've provided this information, you'll need to upload pictures and a discription of your vehicle. The vehicle description should be as detailed as possible so renters know exactly what they're getting.
You only have to upload one photo. However, it's recommended that you include several photos of both the interior and exterior. Also, having high quality photos will help your vehicle stand out and show renters how nice it is. You can also sign up to have professional photographs taken by Turo for free.
