Own Your Vehicle? Interested in Simplest Way To Make Money?

Aleems-car

Aleem D. is a vehicle owner who has  been sharing his vehicle on JustShareIt for over a year now. His vehicle has been rented by guests in the Los Angeles neighborhood for more than 1,000 hours in the last year on JustShareIt.com, earning him several thousand dollars. Aleem says he’s embraced his “inner CEO” by becoming a micropreneur, leveraging the things he has to make the most of the assets he’s got. For Aleem, that’s meant listing his car on JustShareIt.com when he’s not using it, making his vehicle an additional income source.

JustShareIt talked to Aleem about his car sharing experience.

JustShareIt: How has your experience been with JustShareIt so far?

Aleem: ”I’m a classic ‘people person,” Aleem says. “Getting involved in the sharing economy, getting to meet and get acquainted with people in my neighborhood through JustShareIt, it’s been great.” Aleem says it’s the unexpected little things that make using JustShareIt a great experience. “One of my renters uses my car to take her grandfather to his doctor’s appointments. I like the feeling of knowing I’m helping out.”

JustShareIt: What has made you successful in renting your vehicle using JustShareIt?

Aleem: “My Inner CEO”. I’m a heavy social media user, so I’m always sharing my JustShareIt vehicle page on Facebook and Craigslist so it can be found by guests in my neighborhood. I’ve also had luck using LinkedIn to rent my vehicle to friends and connections at work. In addition, I’ve priced my vehicle aggressively so it shows up as the first rental option when renters in my neighborhood are looking for a cheap and affordable car rental next door.

JustShareIt: How do you manage your vehicle availability on JustShareIt?

Aleem: I make sure my car is available for as many hours as possible every week by managing  my vehicle availability calendar on JustShareIt. JustShareIt has provided vehicle owners like me with easy to use online tools and mobile app to manage my vehicle. I receive a text message for every reservation request, which I can then approve with a simple text response via SMS on my mobile phone. I can also list my car hours for instant bookings when I’m out of town. It’s really easy for me to manage and track my vehicle availability hours and earnings with JustShareIt.

JustShareIt: What do you say to people that aren’t comfortable sharing their vehicle with strangers?

Aleem: Initially, I was hesitant about sharing my car with a stranger as well but after renting another owner’s vehicle on JustShareIt I was able to see how the process works. JustShareIt makes owners like me feel very comfortable with renting our vehicles to guests in the neighborhood. JustShareIt provides insurance coverage for my car every time I rent it out, and every renter that requests my car is fully screened and vetted by JustShareIt before they can make a reservation request. Aleem says “Using JustShareIt to rent out your car is like loaning it to a friend, except with more security!

Aleem’s story is one of many who’ve succeeded in making additional income by sharing their vehicles with guests in the local neighborhood. With JustShareIt, vehicle owners like Aleem are helping create a better world by participating in the peer-to-peer sharing economy resulting in fulfilling and rewarding lives in the process.

Apple-Wielding Members Rejoice – Now You Can JustShareIt on the Move!

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that you don’t need a key to unlock cars on JustShareIt. With our cool RideLink technology, you just need an app.

Now iPhone and iPad users can experience the joy of keyless exchanges. That means if you’re a Sharer with a RideLink-enabled vehicle and you can’t be around to give the key to a renter with a iPhone or Android, you won’t have to! It also means that if you manage to lock your key in the car, you don’t have to freak out – just don’t also lock your smartphone in there because that would be…not smart.

Download the iOS and Android apps here!

Weird Wonders In and Around the Bay Area

Let’s face it – California’s home to some odd characters. It’s partly what makes us all love it so much. And you can’t really call yourself a Californian until you’ve scoped out at least a few quirky attractions. So (we think you know where this is going) for your next rental, why not take a ride to some of these gems? They’ll also make for some stellar Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts!

The Winchester Mystery House – San Jose, CA
This is the former home of Sarah Winchester, who inherited millions of dollars when her husband, heir to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, passed away. A millionaire in the 1800s is no joke – too bad her house became one. She believed spirits haunted Continue reading

A Memorable Memorial Day Weekend

Is there a better place to reflect on the weightier side of Memorial Day than from a scenic, natural setting?

Tahoe
Maybe you’re a weekend warrior tearing up the mountains during the winter, but have you soaked up the summer sun in Tahoe? Here’s your chance – this weekend marks Lake Tahoe’s 6th Annual Opening Day at the Lake, the official launch of boating season and SUMMER! Continue reading

If You Like Yacht Rock, You’ll Love La Mujere Especiale


So many of us live in the Bay Area and never have the chance to get out on the water. What a shame. Sharer Patrick H. used to be one of us, but then he went and bought himself a sailboat. A 27′ Catalina to be exact. And lucky for us all, he’s sharing it.

How long have you been sailing?
Well…a few months! I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time and when a friend was selling this boat, I figured it was my chance. I was sort of worried that it would be boring because growing up my dad had motorboats and they got a little boring for me. But sailing keeps you busy – it’s technical, active and hands-on. I love it.

What’s the quirkiest thing about your boat? Continue reading

San Francisco: There’s a Whole Lot of Sharing Going On

As you may know, San Francisco’s Mayor Ed Lee recently announced the formation of a Sharing Economy Working Group. What does this mean? Oh, just that San Francisco is poised to be the sharing economy capital of the world. That’s all.

It’s not enough that we have the highest concentration of peer-to-peer startups headquartered here (‘cause we’re awesome and we do). We also need to see changes at the policy level to keep these companies coming and growing. In fact, this was the topic of an event earlier this week at SPUR in downtown San Francisco.

Community on Wheels

The car commute. Isn’t it crazy to think about everyone driving around in these little bubbles, shielding themselves from the outside world? Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in that space, listening to your podcast, radio station or playlist of choice. It’s like nothing else exists around you. Is someone even driving that machine next to you? Who cares…

The bike commute, on the other hand, is a very different experience. When you see a group of cyclists commuting, they’re most often just individuals – strangers even – pedaling at the same pace, hitting Continue reading
