Many people are turning to Turo fleet, a peer-to-peer car rental platform, as a way to make extra income. If you’re thinking about starting or expanding your Turo fleet in 2024, there are a few key things you can do to increase your chances of success.
First impressions matter, so make sure your Turo profile is well-written and informative. Briefly describe yourself, your fleet (luxury, exotic, etc.), and your availability. Include contact information and links to your social media. You can also consider incorporating your social media into your profile to allow renters to connect with you on multiple platforms.
Providing an excellent customer experience is essential for getting renters to come back. This includes small gestures like bottled water, thank you cards, and a clean, fresh-smelling car. Proactive communication and clear instructions on car features, check-in/out procedures, and emergency roadside assistance are also important.
Don’t jump into massive debt by financing too many cars at once. Start small and scale gradually. Consider buying used cars from dealerships, auctions, Facebook Marketplace, or even family members. Remember, Turo has specific car requirements regarding age, mileage, recalls, and salvage titles. You can also focus on a specific car type, like reliable used cars, to cater to a particular market and simplify fleet management.
Once your fleet reaches 10-12 cars, consider hiring staff to handle communication, scheduling, and maintenance. Tools like Turo’s co-hosting feature can be helpful for remote hosts. Clearly define roles within your team to ensure smooth operations.
By following these tips, you can increase your chances of success in the Turo car rental market in 2024.
