Fluid Market Launches Truck Sharing Marketplace

Community Sharing App Expands Nationwide to Provide On-Demand and Affordable Access to Trucks and SUVs

DENVER, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluid Market, a neighborhood truck sharing application that allows people to rent trucks seamlessly from one another, today announced the nationwide launch of its truck-sharing marketplace, providing a seamless and on-demand utility vehicle rental experience to its peer-to-peer network of users and lenders across the country.

Launched in 2016, Fluid Market empowers community sharing from cars and trucks to tools and household items. The rollout of Fluid's truck-sharing marketplace comes on the heels of the app's 1147% growth in 2017, buoyed by a steady demand for truck and utility vehicle rentals. The majority of vehicle rentals on the app range from $5 to $10/hour or $20 to $49/day, plus additional per mile charges for trucks. Long bed pickup trucks can generate lenders up to $800/month, while moving trucks can earn lenders up to $3,000/month. Fluid Market's platform is the first of its kind to support peer-to-peer lending of moving trucks.

"We credit our users as the inspiration behind the truck-sharing marketplace, as we quickly identified the need for an affordable and user-friendly option specific to truck and utility vehicle rentals," said James Eberhard, Chairman and Co-Founder of Fluid Market. "Fluid Market has built an established presence here in Denver, and now is the right time to share what we've achieved with the rest of the country. The trucking industry has been dominated by the same few companies for decades, and we're eager to flip it on its head and offer our users the freedom to tap into extra income in the process. Think of us as a fusion of U-Haul and Airbnb."

With traditional car ownership set to decrease by 2020 and car sharing platforms utilized by five million people worldwide, Fluid Market's expansion into truck sharing was a natural progression. Users can leverage Fluid Market's large inventory of pickup trucks, cargo vans and moving trucks for everything from moving apartments to picking up a couch at IKEA. 

To access Fluid Market's truck-sharing marketplace, consumers simply visit www.fluidmarket.com or download the app in either the App Store or Play Store. From either marketplace, portal users can browse for available goods, schedule usage and pay for rentals natively within the app with a few quick clicks. To share a vehicle, users snap a photo, provide the vehicle's specs, availability, pick-up instructions and price. Fluid Market's in-app messaging system allows users to stay connected without sharing personal information.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
