Rentmycar.pk, a new startup company, is hoping to help consumers who are struggling to find cars for small or short term rentals.
Rentmycar.pk is an online platform that lets you rent a car for a given time. How? Consumers go to the website, search for the vehicle, enter the city and dates and search for all the available cars. You can then filter by model, self-drive or outstation rentals, among other options. The page also lists down all additional charges that could be applicable, such as delivery/pickup, duration hours etc. A company representative will get back to you and ask for details such as CNIC for verification and then confirm the reservation.
It’s basically an Uber-style, open to all, marketplace that lets car owners list their vehicles which are then rented out to customers. Owners can get an instant estimate of possible earnings by providing a market value of their model along with number of days they are willing to make it available. Currently, the startup is primarily operating in Karachi, along with some presence in Islamabad.
Rentmycar was launched in mid 2017 by Adil Naeem and Faisal Naeem - who owned a small car rental company, Aroma Rentals - along with Kumail Mohib in order to digitize their family business for an extra buck.
“We took inspiration from this American company called Turo and by the time got into the business, Careem had launched by then which quickly convinced people to list their cars online and that made things much easier for us,” the younger brother recalls.
