Meet Shrootin – Our easyCar Club Hero

At easyCar Club, we believe it’s always best to go the extra mile. Making that extra effort will always go a long way. Nobody knows this better than our latest easyCar Club Hero, Shrootin Shah, who consistently goes above and beyond when renting out his Volkswagen Touran.

Shrootin joined easyCar Club after he had bought an electric car and soon found that it was rendering his Touran somewhat redundant. He still needed to make use of the extra space in the Touran for occasional journeys with the whole family, so did not want to sell it. easyCar Club was a natural choice for Shrootin, as it allowed him to ensure that his Touran continued to get regular use and also to cover the costs of its maintenance.

The Touran, as Shrootin describes it, is “like a tardis” – bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside! Its superb design makes it as easy to traverse the motorways in comfort as it is to park in tight spots, whilst also offering a wealth of space for luggage and seats for up to 7 people and great diesel economy. As a high capacity automatic, Shrootin’s car has proven to be popular on the club. In fact, he once bumped into a previous renter at a wedding that he was attending – it turns out that they had common friends that they weren’t even aware of!

For Shrootin, the process of renting his car out with easyCar Club has been smooth and hassle-free, and his rental income to date has enabled him to more than cover his on-going maintenance and insurance costs for the car. Shrootin is full of advice for new Owners – he advises to communicate well with the renter of your vehicle, keep the car clean and presentable and to keep and maintain a record of the car’s condition. By providing each of his renters with this condition report, both he and the renter can rest easy when it comes to the rental period itself. Although there is the option of a Keysafe, Shrootin opts for face-to-face hiring, as it builds trust and enables him to show the renter around the car, explain how everything works and to answer any questions. It also helps to ensure that the car has been thoroughly checked over by the owner and renter before and after each rental.

Great car, perfect working order, clean and well maintained… I am happy to recommend and would definitely rent from Shrootin again

Most importantly, however, Shrootin suggests going the extra mile. He offers to collect people from the nearby train station where possible and is happy for renters to park their own car on his driveway free of charge for the time that they rent his car. In doing so, Shrootin not only gives himself the competitive edge over conventional car hire firms, but also ensures that his renters get a fantastic service every time.

There’s plenty of space in the back, even with 5 people in the car
