On the hunt for a brand-new car for ridesharing? Splend is here to help! We’re launching our successful Rent-to-Own plan in Canada in April 2019.
What is Splend Rent-to-Own?
Already a favourite of hundreds of our Members in Australia, our Rent-to-Own plan is a new concept in this neck of the woods. Our goal is to offer our Members an accessible and flexible gateway to car ownership – in other words, an alternative to traditional car finance for Uber drivers.
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about Splend’s Rent-to-Own plan.
How does Splend’s Rent-to-Own plan work?
- Become the owner of a brand-new car on a flexible rental contract, with the weekly fee paid one week in advance.
- No deposit is taken, just a one-off Membership fee payment which grants access to a growing pool of Member Benefits.
- Members typically take full ownership of the car after 3-4 years, depending on the model in question and whether they opt for an early buyout*.
- At the end of the rental period, you will pay a symbolic admin fee for transferring the vehicle’s documents to your name.
- After the minimum rental period, you can cancel the Rent-to-Own contract by providing one month’s notice and paying the small admin fee.
* With 12 months remaining on your agreement you can request to buy out the car by paying the remaining weekly fees.
