Whenever I needed a car in Zurich, I have been using sharoo.ch (referral link - I hope it’s allowed?) and I have been very satisfied by it.
The idea is very simple: people can rent their cars to strangers, who can book, pay, and unlock the car through the smartphone.
Now, because I recently I moved to a place in Zurich where I can enjoy free parking, I started thinking: what if I buy a second hand car and rent it out? Anybody in here has thought about it or is already doing it? It could possibly produce a small cash flow after a small (few K’s) investment, if the income from renting the car would exceed taxes, insurances, and car repairs (too much to ask, perhaps?). Would be nice to know the statistics from sharoo about how often do cars get rented…
What do you guys think?
