2008 Toyota Yaris

Gertrude Street, Preston VIC

Owner: Megan

Transmission: Manual

Hourly Rate: $6.00

Daily Rate: $30.00

Rate per km: $0.33 (includes fuel)

Features: Folding Rear Seat, Air Conditioning, AUX Input

Description:

Zippy, fuel-efficient, 5 door manual Toyota Yaris. The back seats fold down completely, allowing you to fit a deceiving large amount of items in the back if needed. I've been able to fit a couple of bikes in at a time! There is a Melways under the front passenger seat if needed. There is also an adaptor for USB chargers in the cigarette console. There is also an AUX cable for your use in the glove box. The car has a CD player and in the glove box there's a selection of '90s-'00s mixed CDs for your listening pleasure. Happy driving :)

2014 FIAT Punto

Warrs Avenue, Preston VIC

Owner: Josephine

Transmission: Automatic

Hourly Rate: $5.00

Daily Rate: $25.00

Rate per km: $0.33 (includes fuel)

Features: Child Seat, Air Conditioning

Description:

If you're looking for a small car to take you and your little one around the city, then my little Punto is for you - she has a car seat suitable for 1-4 year old installed. Very low km's and in great condition, my Punto may not have the most powerful engine in the world, but she is very easy to steer and park. You can choose to drive either in Automatic or Manual. Being an Italian car, the indicators are on the left hand side, so you may accidentally turn the windscreen wipers on when you're turning right, but it doesn't take long to get used to this! This is a family car, so strictly no smoking thanks!

Russell’s profile picture

2008 Holden Astra

High Street, Preston VIC

Owner: Russell

Transmission: Manual

Hourly Rate: $5.00

Daily Rate: $25.00

Rate per km: $0.33 (includes fuel)

Features: Folding Rear Seat, Pet Friendly, GPS, Air Conditioning

Description:

I have Holden Astra Hatch. I choose it as I could fit my bike in the back without removing its wheel. The thing is I more cycle about to work, shops, friends, Blues bars, etc. so the car is idle for much of the week. A good friend use to borrow my car a lot when I traveled, but they are overseas. She had suggested Car Next Door. She had a dog who enjoyed car trips. So I don't mind pets in the car so long as it is tidied afterward. The vehicle is 5 years old, fuel efficient, and mechanically very reliable. It has also accumulated the usual few scratches and marks so I can be less anxious about how it is treated. I endeavor to keep it clean and tidy inside, so appreciate it if you can do the same. There is a torch in the glove box and first aid kit under the seat, and GPS on the Dash.
