Five Things to Do to Your Car Before You Share It

Car sharing is a highly popular service that many people indulge in these days. You can consider sharing your vehicle with other people who might need it for work and other projects. However, you should ensure that it's in the best condition possible before you do so. The following are some processes you may want to take your car through before you put it up for sharing. 

Wash and Wax It

One thing you'll need to do before you put your car up for car sharing is to wash and wax it. Your customers will want to get into a nice-looking vehicle that has a decent wax job and a clean exterior. Don't be afraid to invest some money in making the vehicle look presentable. You'll be glad you put effort into it when you receive referrals and start getting additional share deals. 

Have the Tires Checked

You should also take your vehicle to a reputable mechanic shop and have your tires checked. The reason for having your tires checked is to prevent any accidents from occurring while someone else is driving your car. Thus, you should have someone check the tire pressure and the condition of the tires. Tell the mechanic to look for holes, exposed wires, bubbles, and the like. It will be smart of you to invest your money in buying new tires if you find out that you need them. It will earn you more profits in the end and prevent your insurance from rising. 

Detail the Inside

Customers also want to have a nice experience when they're inside someone else's car. Therefore, you should take the time to have someone detail the inside. Ensure that the entire inside of the vehicle is vacuumed and has a nice odor to it. You can even put some mats down so that your share clients can put their feet down without ruining the carpeting in your vehicle. Another thing you can do is wax the steering wheel or add a steering wheel cover so that your clients will be comfortable on their journeys. Those steps will make you the kind of reputable vehicle owner that people will want to use.

Add Accessories

Another tip for getting your car ready is to add accessories that will accommodate your car share clients. For example, you might want to add a smartphone charger, since most people bring their smartphones with them wherever they go. You could also invest in some refreshments if you feel like being super accommodating. You don't have to go overboard and add fine wine as if you own a limousine. However, it might be nice to put a few bottles of water in the car for your guests. Treat other people as if they're renting your home, and you'll surely get positive reviews. 

Get the Oil Changed

Finally, ensure that you have someone change your oil before you start renting your vehicle out to other people. Changing your oil will keep it running for a longer period, and it will prevent motor damage from the excessive miles. You can feel comfortable changing your oil before you start sharing your car because you'll know it can go for several thousand miles. 

Get Ready to Share Your Car

Now you know some improvements you can make to your car before you share it. Start preparing your vehicle to go on the market so that you can earn some money starting today. You'll most likely think of some additional things you can do to your car to improve the experience for other people. Don't hesitate to do those things.
