Fluid Market lender uses personal touches to create great experiences for her truck renters

Lender Success: How A Personal Touch Drives Repeat Business

Lots of folks dream of visiting Paris, but Amy H. is realizing her dream of returning to the City of Lights by getting her side hustle on through Fluid. Amy H., an executive administrator at Denver-based NIMBL, first heard about Fluid in September 2017 through a recommendation on Nextdoor. She immediately saw the opportunity to earn some extra money and posted up her 2006 Dodge Ram. Amy H. now has hundreds of side hustle dollars in her pocket to help finance her next dream vacation: a return to Paris, where she and her husband spent their unforgettable honeymoon.

“I love the ease and convenience of renting my truck on Fluid,” shared Amy H., Fluid lender and Denver-based executive administrator. “All it takes is a few clicks a week and sharing a few messages in the app with prospective renters, and my Dodge is out earning for me while I’m at my day job. So many of my renters thank me for making their lives easier, allowing them to inexpensively and easily bring home their purchases from Home Depot, move furniture, and transport mulch. Fluid is an awesome and super-easy way to earn extra money.”

Amy H.’s pro tip for Fluid lenders? Go a bit further for your renters and it will pay off. “I take that extra step by making sure there are bottles of water, extra windshield wiping fluid, tow straps, and tie-downs in my truck,” shared Amy H. “I also leave my renters a note in the car thanking them for using Fluid — it’s a personal and simple touch that I see translate into return business. I’ve been amazed to see that my renters treat my vehicle well, returning it in the same condition they found it.”

With that kind of successful side hustle, Amy H. will be boarding a plane back to Paris soon!

Mike G. recently retired after decades as a senior sales executive and had some extra time on his hands, so he began exploring ways to stay engaged and make some side hustle cash. He first heard of Fluid through his son-in-law, and he immediately jumped on the opportunity to bring in a few extra bucks by lending a truck to his neighbors. Mike purchased a 16 feet box truck, posted it up on Fluid, and within two months earned hundreds of dollars renting the vehicle.

“Who wouldn’t like to bring in some extra money with so little work?”, quipped Mike G., a Fluid lender, and a recent retiree. “Renting my box truck on Fluid has been a lot of fun, allowing me to put my sales background to use as I market my vehicle to my neighbors and in the greater Denver community. This is my first money-making side hustle since I retired, and I’m having a blast earning some cash while making so many new connections.”

Mike G. & his 16 ft. box Fluid truck!

Mike G. has been successful getting word about the availability of his truck out there, by doing everything from posting flyers around his neighborhood, to sharing the link to his Fluid truck on various social networks, including Nextdoor’s “For Sale & Free / Automotive” section. By creatively marketing his truck, Mike G. sees his truck rented out most weekends, and he’s looking forward to a busy spring and summer season.

Mike G. offers this pro tip to Fluid lenders: respond quickly to any inquiries you receive on your vehicle. “I try to always respond within a few minutes of receiving a message from a prospective renter,” shared Mike G. “It’s so simple to stay in close touch through the Fluid Truck Share app and it pays off tremendously. Renters regularly thank me for my quick responses and return to rent the vehicle again. Quick responses pay off!”

How One Colorado Mom Makes Serious Side Hustle Cash on Fluid Truck Share App

Sara is a super busy single mom of three kids. Beyond the daily madness of raising her children, Sara also has a part-time job as an in-home health care provider. She was looking for a way to put a bit more cash in her pocket and heard about Fluid Truck Share. Sara joined the community as a lender and is now earning hundreds of extra dollars every month.

“Fluid has definitely become my favorite side hustle,” said Sara. “I’m making reliable cash by renting out my Ford F-250 pickup truck at least once per week. The best part is that lending my truck on Fluid requires almost none of my time — I’m simply managing my reservations through the mobile app and it couldn’t be easier.”

So how does Sara do it? First, she posted up pictures and a brief description of her vehicle via the Fluid Truck Share app. She then set the rate at $6 per hour or $32 per day with unlimited mileage, a big plus for borrowers. Finally, Sara promotes her vehicle on Facebook, Nextdoor, and OfferUp to generate more visibility in the greater Denver community. Through this simple process, Sara is earning on average $500 in extra income per month by renting out her truck.

In addition to the profitability of her side hustle, Sara has made lasting connections in the community, as several of her regular renters use her vehicle to transport donations for local schools, homeless shelters, and others in need.

“As a Coloradan, there’s nothing better than to see my community helping each other out,” said Sara. “And as a mom raising her kids here, it absolutely makes my day to know that I’m contributing in a small way to strengthening our community ties.”

Meet The Team Frenchie: 5 Fun Facts About Doug!

Every so often, we feature one of our awesome Fluid team members. This week, meet Fluid’s Frenchie, Doug!

You’ve seen him in our job descriptions, our Instagrams, and now he’s wriggled his way into a blog post… meet our French Bulldog, Douglas! You can catch him chasing ice cubes, basking in the sun, or hot-boxing the office with his awful gas. But we always forgive him because… well, just look at that face!

Doug took some time from his super busy schedule to answer some fun fact questions for us. Check them out, below!


1. What’s something most people wouldn’t know about you?
That I purposefully gulp a lot of air when I drink water so I can let out the stinkiest farts next to people. Sometimes I’ll walk up next to people and fart. Then I’ll walk away nonchalantly like nothing happened. There’s no pleasure in farting when there is no audience.

2. What’s a secret talent of yours?
Definitely my ability to fart. It’s true, I can crop dust the entire office and people still think I’m cute. Nobody can resist me – nobody!!

3. What’s one thing on your bucket list?
I’d like to date Emily the other office dog, but I don’t think she notices me yet. Okay, maybe I annoy her sometimes. Seriously, what do I need to do to get noticed?

4. What’s your favorite thing about Fluid?
I like the hugs and ice cubes. Unlimited ice cubes for the win! I’m the company therapy dog through and through. Seriously though, the atmosphere is very chill and everybody loves me – except Emily :’-(.

5. Who do you look up to/your biggest influencers?
Me, I’m so awesome! I mean how could you not like me?
