Getaround announced its expansion into the Tri-State New Jersey area. Now, car owners in Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken can earn money by renting out their cars. Those without cars can easily discover and rent cars by the hour using the Getaround website, iOS or Android apps.
With over 30,000 users between Northern New Jersey and New York City looking to rent cars this spring and summer for road trips, apartment moves and errand runs, now is the time for car owners to list their cars and start earning money. In addition to creating economic opportunity for car owners in Northern New Jersey, Getaround will be creating local jobs as the company looks to open a New Jersey office and hire around 10 people within the next several months.
Getaround makes car-sharing keyless through the Getaround mobile app and Getaround Connect™. This proprietary technology, combines GPS, Bluetooth LE and keyless remote technology allowing renters to unlock the car from their mobile phones and eliminating the need for owners to provide keys to the renter in-person.
Dozens of cars in Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken are already listed on Getaround and can be discovered and booked through the website and mobile app today. Car owners have the potential to earn hundreds of dollars per month funding their car payment, groceries or next vacation. Getaround handles background and license checks and provides insurance to ensure both owner and renter have peace of mind.
