Think your Brooklyn car share membership will only come in handy when you need to run to the grocery store or grab your son from soccer practice? Well, think again! When it comes to convenient and affordable transportation, nothing beats having your own vehicle. Unless, of course, that vehicle is a car share and costs you only a fraction of the price of owning your own car. Remember: as a car share member, you enjoy all the perks of a personal vehicle without any fuel, maintenance or insurance hassles.
And when we say all the perks, we mean all the perks. Want to spend the afternoon shopping in Midtown? You can use a car share for that. Need to head upstate for a family reunion? Our car share vehicles can get you there. Because with Carpingo, we go anywhere you need to go.
Looking for some inspiration for your next Brooklyn car share outing? Here’s a list of five fun adventures that Carpingo can help you share.
1. Take Me Out to the Ball Game
If you frequently travel to sporting events in any one of the five boroughs, car sharing could be your ticket to a more affordable and enjoyable experience. Now, instead of having to hop on and off the subway, you can simply unlock a Carpingo vehicle and make your way to the stadium. No more buses or cabs, and forget about renting a vehicle for the evening. Brooklyn car share members need only reserve their vehicle for the time they’ll be at the game – talk about convenient!
2. Celebrate with Family and Friends
Summer is the season for backyard BBQs, weddings, baby showers and family reunion – just to name a few! Unfortunately, attending all of these events can be a real hassle if you don’t own your own car. Finding a ride with a friend can be frustrating, and who has the money to catch a cab out to the Hamptons? With Carpingo, you never have to miss another reunion or cancel a much anticipated get together. Simply hop in one of our Brooklyn car share vehicles and make the trip without hassle. Heck, you can even offer to pick up your friends as a thank you for all the times they offered you a lift! Since gas is included in your car share membership, there’s no need to split the costs or watch the gauge. Your only job is to have fun with your friends!
3. Home Sweet Home
Thinking about trading in your rental apartment for a piece of New York’s real estate pie? Sounds like you could use a vehicle to get around to all of those property viewings! Our Brooklyn car share vehicles offer house hunters a quick, convenient and affordable way to canvas the neighborhood and check out all the latest listings. Here in the Big Apple, time is of the essence, after all. So when you see that charming brownstone hit the MLS listings, DON’T WAIT! Reserve your Carpingo car share vehicle as you’re walking out the door. You don’t have 10 minutes to wait for the bus – you need to get to your agent’s office fast in order to submit your offer!
4. Regular Scheduled Maintenance
If you’re a Brooklyn car share member, chances are good you’re also an avid cyclist. And if that’s the case, you know that it’s important to service your bike regularly in order to avoid costly damage and expensive repairs. So give your pedals a bit of a break this week and drop your bike off at the shop. Your bike will fit perfectly in the back of our Ford E250 van rental, so don’t worry about lugging it on the bus or rolling it through the subway. With Carpingo, a trip to the bike mechanic is easy!
5. Surf’s Up!
Feeling a little pasty from a long and miserable winter? Well, now’s your chance to get out there and enjoy the sunshine! Beat the heat and make the most of our short summer season with help from Carpingo’s on-demand rental system. Simply wake up, check the weather report, and reserve your car share vehicle. When it’s all said and done, you could be soaking up rays in less than an hour! Want to head out for dinner with some friends following your beach vacation? Then simply add some extra time to your reservation and you’re on your way. When it comes to convenience, you can count on Carpingo!
It doesn’t matter what you use our Brooklyn car share vehicles for, so long as you’re having fun doing it! So why wait? Join our car share community today and enjoy the freedom of alternative transportation.
