Is Car-Sharing Right for You?
We at Car Club understand that choosing to sign up with a Car-Sharing operator is not an easy decision to make. With so many different transportation options available in the city, how can I make sense of whether Car-Sharing is a suitable option for me? Will Car-Sharing make financial sense for me? While the question of how much Car-Sharing will save for you is answered in another blogpost, this one will try to answer whether Car-Sharing is compatible with your lifestyle.
Generally, Car-Sharing is for you if you wish to experience the convenience and mobility of a personal car without the high costs of owning and maintaining one. Car-Sharing is all about offering the experience of having a car to members on a subscription basis so that the costs of maintenance and depreciation are shared evenly. This allows for a more efficient utilization of the vehicle and contributes to a less congested, car-lite and greener city! Ultimately, this will result in a more liveable city as well. In addition, Car-Sharing cultivates civic-mindfulness while ensuring that a larger number of people can have access to a car without the expensive upfront payments – a position that is in line with the other sectors of the sharing economy. Sharing is all about promoting access, not ownership.
Let us break down some of the key benefits of Car-Sharing:
