Co-wheels Car Club CIC

Description

Co-wheels is the only independently-owned national car club, providing low emission, hybrid and electric cars on a pay-as-you-go basis for organisations and communities across the UK.

Trading as a social enterprise means a commitment to improve society and environment. Our primary focus is to help our members to save money, reduce car ownership and create a cleaner environment by making lower impact transport options available to everyone. Because Co-wheels is a Community Interest Company, we reinvest profit into our operations to expand and improve the service.

Co-wheels now delivers car clubs in over 50 locations across the UK, some of which are used by businesses and local authorities, as well as the public.
The Co-wheels team look to create opportunities for innovative projects:

  • Continually seeking ways to partner with local and national transport operators to integrate our services.
  • Introducing electric vehicles wherever possible; ensuring they are accessible and appealing by introducing a zero mileage fee, and making them our most affordable cars to hire.
  • We are pioneering electric bike hire for employees, and our first on-street e-bike hire in Inverness.
  • We are the first and only car club to introduce Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles into our fleet.

GoCarShare

Description

Driving somewhere? Say no to empty seats. Get your car seats earning money and meet fun people by sharing the journey.

Need a lift? No problem! Search for someone who will drive you to your destination. The cost? goCarSharing is virtually always the cheapest way to travel.

Irrespective of whether you are a potential passenger or a potential driver, the first thing to do is to login via facebook. If you are looking to drive, you create a GoCarShare request by simply entering the details about the journey that you are planning on making. Passengers will then search for suitable people to GoCarShare with. They will then apply and/or message the driver.

Because GoCarShare is linked with Facebook it is easy to find out information about fellow users, such as whether you have friends in common, their interests, or university attended.

The driver then lets the passenger know whether they can share with them by accepting them if it suits, or declining them if it doesn't. Once the journey is complete, leave each other feedback to help future GoCarSharers.

If at any point you need advice at all, just drop us a line at hello@gocarshare.com - we'll be more than happy to answer any questions.

Rentecarlo

Description

Rentecarlo allows you to rent your neighbour's car in an easy, convenient and friendly way. Car owners are able to earn money when their car is left unused, while drivers are provided with affordable and convenient transportation. Rental periods include fully comprehensive insurance coverage for peace of mind.

Car sharing reduces the number of cars on the road. This means fewer CO2 emissions are polluting the air, and you’re reducing your personal carbon footprint. It also helps people make greener transportation choices, since being a member means you don’t have to keep a car in your driveway.

No signup fees and no membership fees. Never stand in line for hours or get charged outrageous fees by your traditional car hire company again!
