HyreCar, the peer-to-peer car-sharing company for ride-shares, is attempting to solve their overstocked inventory by focusing on large fleet owners rather than individuals according to their newly hired Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships, Brian Allan.
Hyrecar lets car owners rent their idle vehicles to ride-share drivers. There is still room for peer-to-peer, Allan said, but HyreCar will reinforce that supply of vehicles by securing OEM and dealer group alliances. He declined to disclose potential partnership names. In November, HyreCar partnered with dealership Reedman Toll Auto Group.
Allan said he hopes to take the company to the next level by tapping the “tremendous scale and volume” that dealers have. “It’s so much more efficient to upload one company with dozens and dozens of vehicles versus peer-to-peer,” he said.
In addition to securing more fleet partnerships, Allan said making the onboarding process more efficient is another priority. Instead of manually uploading each individual car onto the platform, which Allan said can be laborious, he plans to automate that process so that “it is effortless for the dealer to offer their vehicles to [HyreCar’s] consumers at a large scale.”
