So easy!

Was looking to hire a truck or van to go pick up a dining table we found on Facebook marketplace and came across this app. It was so easy! I’m, like, still shocked how easy and smooth the whole process was and even better is that It’s so affordable! The app guides you through literally every step from finding the car, opening the lockbox to uploading photos of the condition. The pricing is so straight forward and I love there weren’t a thousand extra little fees added on there like when you rent a car from a normal car rental place. Also, extra coverage was only like $7 additional so yeah, take my money. Will definitely use again!

100% great experience

This service is fantastic. I have used car next door many times, and always found the cars terrific, and the app working perfectly. If you’re not sure about it, give it a try! It’s convenient and easy, and car sharing could have a huge impact on carbon emissions.

Absolute waste of time

Went through the entire application process, provided every bit of information they asked for. Perfect driving record, perfect credit. No issues. Full license. I meet every single one of the eligibility criteria they provide.

The only issue may be that I'm a permanent resident with an American driver's license. Customer service and the site both confirm that does not affect eligibility.

They denied my application with no explanation. Customer service says they will not provide any explanation whatsoever. I've never been denied from renting a car in my life and they did not provide a single reason, which they say is due to "security purposes".

Not only that, but I am not even allowed to apply again. Ever.

I have no idea whether it's because I made a spelling mistake in the application, my card didn't go through or some other arbitrary mistake on their part or mine. I downloaded the app while I was waiting for approval (as I was instructed to do via the website) and since I used two devices - my phone and computer - they sent me an email saying there was unsual "detected activity on your Car Next Door account" and gave me the phone's IP address.

That could have been the reason my application was rejected. Who knows? Terrible customer experience.

We're sorry that we weren't able to approve your application. Because we're giving access to people's cars, we have to be more cautious than a corporate car hire company. Our criteria are so strict that we may end up declining good people, and to protect the security of the process we can't give any details of why an application was declined.
