The “Shared Economy” Trend Makes it Possible for ATV and UTV Owners to Profit from Rentals

SAN JOSE, CA – February 19, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Many ATV and UTV owners and their families love riding their powersports, when they get the chance, that is. Lucky to be used a handful of weekends when the weather cooperates; such a big toy beckons to be enjoyed instead of sitting idle 95% of the year. Today’s shared economy enables owners to turn those parked vehicles into a profitable asset instead of a recreational liability by renting it to others.  And to the relief of ATV and UTV owners across the country, they can not only make money from their vehicle, but get the critically important insurance and reservations handled for them as well.

Through its online platform, Fun2Rent.com arranges simple and insured online rental transactions that satisfy both the renter and the owner. “Think of Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO.com) and HomeAway.com, which rent homes and condos by owners every day,” says Fun2Rent CEO Shawn Gardner. “We essentially put individual owners in business while they provide the UTV (ATV, PWC, Snowmobile and boats), and we take care of the reservations, insurance, data security and administrative headaches.”

In fact, Gardner describes Fun2Rent’s insurance as the “best in the business,” including, liability and physical damage coverage of up to $1M for the owner and damage and liability coverage for the renter. The website enables eligible owners anywhere in the United States to post their off-road powersports for rent. As of press time, the more popular rental states are California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wisconsin and Alabama.

ATV and UTV owners offset the expense of ownership, and many are using the extra income to upgrade for newer vehicles. Renters get great pricing and dealers get more business selling and maintaining powersport machines that are then utilized more hours by an aspirational and growing base of users.

According to Gardner the demand is growing. “Awareness and acceptance of boat and powersport rentals by owners is rising with the peer-to-peer industry,” he explains. “Relayrides, Getaround, and Lyft are contributing to car sharing while Fun2Rent is focused on off-road vehicles and boating.”

Fun2Rent has carved out an unprecedented way to offer a win-win experience for powersport owners and their renters.  To learn more visit http://fun2rent.com/
