Would you rent out your vehicle to another rideshare driver? For drivers who have an extra vehicle, don’t want to or can’t rideshare drive at the moment, or for those who just want to make some extra cash with their unused vehicle, Hyrecar can be a great option. But what’s it like renting your car out to strangers? RSG contributor Paula Gibbins details her experience renting her car out on Hyrecar here (affiliate link)
HyreCar is not a new concept, but it was new to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area as of May 2018. My husband, Adam, had signed up to be notified as soon as it was available in our area because we wanted to test it out. Passive income is always a great thing in our opinion, so we wanted to see if this would be worthwhile.
For a little background, HyreCar is a service where people who own cars can put them up for rent, typically by Lyft and Uber drivers who don’t have cars that they can use or who don’t want to put the wear and tear on their own vehicles. So, those drivers rely on people like my husband and I to be willing to let them drive our cars.
