Understanding the Problems with Car Sharing
I am an experienced five star rated host who has rented out 5 vans for 3 years in the Philadelphia area using the “Turo” car sharing app. Turo is a somewhat different type of car sharing app and a competitor to the Getaway car sharing company. When I read 1 star reviews ( I just read one for Getaway) from people who rented cars they usually blame the company, not the car owner, for mechanical issues. This is very unfair. The responsibility for maintaining the cars is 100% on the vehicle owner. When you pick a car to rent you must read the reviews about the car owner who is renting the car. You always want to pick a 5-star host. These hosts are usually professionals who know the basics of vehicle maintenance and do vehicle inspections after every rental. Given the fact that car sharing usually involves renting older vehicles one must realize that older vehicles sometimes have maintenance issues and that you are taking a risk but at the same time you’re usually getting a great price. I am a mechanic and would never think of renting out a car or one of my vans without first visually checking brakes and rotors and then doing a test ride of at least 10 miles in stop and go and highway traffic. Most individuals who rent cars on these platforms are clueless when it comes to pre-inspecting the vehicles so pick your host carefully
Getaround will treat you like family, or better. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THEM
Any problem, any time, they will make it right and you'll be warmly greeted in what I consider to be the prompted answer time I can remember. That includes email which is NEVER that way with any company, but I guarantee you this, if you called your mom or dad how long would it take for a call back? Because I guarantee Getaround is faster than that! I never ask for a refund or retribution when I call companies I do business with to give feedback, Getaround makes sure you don't even have a moment to think of the situations impact on you, instead they take care of you, the situation and each of the now 6-7 agents I've talked to are some of the most genuine people I've ever encountered in a support call center and frankly businesses resolution team, they TRULY care and you'll know that from the first minute when you hear the way they greet you.
If you truly take the time to consider the variables that can occur with the business model of high turn over (back to back) car rentals ESPECIALLY when rideshare drivers are utilizing them, than you'll be a bit more forgiving with issues Getaround cannot possibly cover if you still want to maintain the low cost and on-demand selection they have, because its bar none in their industry.
Use Getaround to waste time & money!
Twice in a row now, getaround has failed to notify me that my reservation has been forcibly changed, sending me to a car that doesn’t exist when they could’ve easily notified me before hand. With the first car, I was sent to a location in an unsafe neighbor, miles away, and the car was unaccessible. Upon calling customer service (20 mins on hold) the getaround rep *graciously* offered to cancel my reservation and give me a $20 coupon off my next trip.... how kind! The second time, I specifically booked a getaround in a garage to ensure there would be no issues (like last time) and once again, I show up and the car was miles away, when seconds earlier the GPS had shown it was in the garage. After another 20 minutes on hold I get through to a rep who also *graciously* offers to pay for my Uber across town to the new car, in downtown San Francisco, at 4pm rush hour, on Memorial Day weekend. New car has worse MPG so now we are stuck in traffic for more time, paying more money. Try getaround today to have your trip delayed, a horrible customer experience, and everything will cost more!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
