Need A Truck? Borrow It!

Whether you’re gearing up to move to your new apartment, make a big run to Home Depot for your next DIY project, or an Amazon Flex driver ready to deliver, you need the right vehicle (and your hatchback is just not going to do the trick). Fluid peer-to-peer truck share to the rescue! Whatever job you have to tackle, you can borrow the truck you need on the Fluid Truck Share app starting as low as $5/hour. No more awkwardly asking your neighbor to borrow their truck, and no more standing in line for hours at an expensive corporate truck rental company. Fluid saves you time and money by helping you find the vehicle you need in just a few clicks.

Borrowing a truck on Fluid is easy and quick:

  1. Download the Fluid Truck Share app on the App Store or Google Play.
  2. Sign up and upload a picture of your driver’s license, a quick selfie, and your credit card information. The first time you rent, we’ll verify your driver’s license and credit card, which generally takes just a few minutes.
  3. Search for the vehicle you need by category, location, and availability.
  4. Reserve your truck!

Vehicle pick-up and drop-off is also a piece of cake. Once you reserve a vehicle, we’ll send you the vehicle’s location and specific instructions both via email and in the app. At pick up and drop off, you’ll be asked to take pictures of the interior and exterior of the vehicle to share the vehicle’s condition. Throughout the reservation, you can communicate with the lender directly through the in-app messaging feature.

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!
