How does the MyHire car rental app work?

Just by visiting our website, you will have the access to download and install the mobile app. Alternatively, you can download the application from the Google Playstore, after which you can list your vehicle – its make and model, location, and pictures as well as the daily rate.

You can also indicate the dates your car is unavailable for bookings on those days when you need the car for personal errands. You are free to set your own rental prices, and any rules in addition to the standard ones outlined by the app.

Once a client books your vehicle, you are expected to organize the delivery and collection, but if you are tied up, you can always reach out to Myhire for qualified drivers to deliver and collect from the client. After the trip, you’ll get paid the rental fee (after the app’s commission rate has been taken), and reimbursed for any fuel and mileage beyond your limit.

Karisa uses MyHire & Rentals app to rent out his car in Mombasa while he is away and has been earning Ksh. 200,000 each month.

“My car is regularly rented by tourists, locals, corporates and NGOs on self-drive and chauffeured service and I make a steady monthly income from it. I will be able to enjoy an extra Ksh. 200,000 per month allowing me to invest more into my numerous businesses.” In case you have extra cars that are currently not engaged, Karisa recommends that you rent it out.

“I’ve made car rentals a full-time business”

Leilah rents out several cars using MyHire app.

“Rental apps like MyHire could help you earn extra cash from your car – should you rent it out” she states. This stay-at-home mum wanted to earn her own money. “My car was sitting on the drive-way at home not being used and just collecting dust, so I Googled “renting out a car in Nairobi.”

Leilah initially rented out her red BMW 32o series through the app. Before she could get approved, she had to get her car appraised, install a tracker for monitoring the car and get comprehensive insurance cover. She says that the new monthly income now goes to financing her growing fleet of cars. In her best month in 2022, she made Ksh. 130,000.

Leilah has gradually added more cars to her fleet, and while she successfully rents them out as a full-time business, she cautions others to do their research before joining her.

‘It’s rewarding – I’ve become a stay-at-home boss. I’m self-employed and I can spend the profits, she says. ‘But this is not for everyone – and a lot of people may learn that the hard way.

‘With every car, you feel that nervousness for the first few trips, but most of the time it comes back in great condition. The more experience you have dealing with the damage and any issues that arise, the more confident you’ll feel going forward.’
