How does it work?

Earn more money from your car. MyHire is evolving the way people rent cars.
We make it possible for people to hire a private car from other people with confidence. We do this by creating a ‘trusted marketplace’ where Owners list their vehicles for FREE and Renters find and book the vehicles after passing our internal verification processes.

Our focus is on creating an integrated digital ecosystem by equipping car rental operators with advanced technological innovations and infrastructure that makes the car rental experience more convenient. By seamlessly connecting renters to car owners through our mobile app, we create exposure and accessibility for both renters and car owners.

What is the MyHire-CONNECT® Kit?

The MyHire-CONNECT® is an electronic device installed in MyHire partner vehicles that harness the powers of connectivity, Artificial Intelligence (AI), analytics and edge computing. This technology helps us expand our ability to understand, analyse and gain intelligence across a mixed fleet of vehicles with real-time data pertaining to battery health, crash event, road traffic, location, predictive maintenance and servicing–and even live recordings of road incidents.

The MyHire-CONNECT® Kit covers a full scope of integrated features:

  • Trip history
  • GPS / live map
  • Geofence alerts
  • Driver behavior alerts
  • Vehicle maintenance alerts
  • Live Front facing Video recordings of incidents

Using the MyHire-CONNECT®, we are able to get telematics feedback on the driver behavior (hard braking, hard cornering, over speeding,  etc) that is used to profile and penalize rogue clients. The MyHire-CONNECT® securely tracks the location of the vehicle and includes anti-theft functionality. As a car owner, we strongly encourage you to have your own tracking and security devices installed.

How to get MyHire-CONNECT® installed

Before you can have a MyHire-Connect® installed in your vehicle, you must first list your car on the MyHire platform and work with your local representatives to make sure your car qualifies for sharing. If you haven’t done so yet.
Once your car has been approved for sharing on MyHire, our team will help schedule an appointment at a time most convenient for you to drop off the car for installation at MyHire-approved vendor near you. The vendor will be able to provide more information about turnaround time and should notify you once your MyHire-Connect® installation is complete. 
As always, if you have any questions at all during the process, you can always contact your local MyHire representative with questions.

What are MyHire-CONNECT's Payment Terms?

All MyHire cars are equipped with a MyHire-CONNECT®™  – a unique hardware technology designed specifically to improve operations in the car rental ecosystem. Once installed in your car, the Connect™ provides critical data about the car and the driver behavior.

All cars are eligible for a 30-day Payment Plan enabling them to pay 50% of the MyHire-CONNECT®™ cost upfront and let the car pay for the balance through bookings generated from the app:

  • One-time Ksh. 30,000 installation fee
 or take up the 50% Payment Plan.
  • Ksh. 2,000 monthly subscription fee

These fees will be billed 30 days after your car is officially launched on MyHire. You are responsible for the Ksh. 2,000 monthly subscription fee as long as your car’s listing is active.

Additional details:

  • MyHire-Connect™ is available on a 30 day payment plan (50% deposit) and balance payable from bookings
  • You must have a valid credit card on file during the payment plan or signed the required documents.

What about Insurance Cover?

Your car is supposed to be comprehensively insured with a PSV appropriate Cover (ie. self-drive or chauffeured) for it to start receiving bookings on MyHire platform.

  • damage
