Especially if you reside within city limits, you can have beauty products, burritos or beer brought to your front door with just a couple of taps on your smartphone.
To help the service providers who need a vehicle to deliver those items, TrueCar and HyreCar announced a new partnership Feb. 10, targeting the car-sharing marketplace for ridesharing, food and package delivery services.
The companies highlighted that launch of the HyreCar Auto Buying Program powered by TrueCar addresses the vehicle purchase needs of drivers and owners that work in the mobility and transportation industry.
HyreCar said its Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) marketplace generates tens of thousands of potential automotive purchase and rental leads per month. The partnership will leverage TrueCar’s online vehicle research, trade-in, pricing and payment tools.
TrueCar explained its national dealer network of more than 14,000 stores now can assist HyreCar customers to acquire a new or used vehicle or to sell or trade-in their vehicle.
Additionally, the TrueCar partnership will support HyreCar’s Earn to Own program for qualified HyreCar customers.
“HyreCar customers rent, sell and buy vehicles. The TrueCar partnership offers a seamless way to address this significant market in a relevant and effective manner for dealers and customers,” HyreCar CEO Joe Furnari said in a news release.
“Additionally, TrueCar helps create awareness that vehicle dealers can benefit from serving the Mobility-as-a-Service industry via HyreCar’s platform,” added Furnari, who also mentioned the partnership will potentially grow to include special OEM offers and dedicated vehicle finance solutions.
