If your vehicle is registered in Tasmania, you are required to follow some additional checks and procedures to rent out your vehicle on a car sharing platform.
The Tasmanian Government has introduced the 'Hire and Drive Reimbursement Program'. Please visit the our support article to see if you are eligible.
If you would like to rent out your vehicle on evee in Tasmania, you will need to upgrade your car's MAIB class to 'Hire and Drive' - which is class 8. Please send evidence of your MAIB class 8 insurance to firstname.lastname@example.org as we will require this before making your car available on the platform.
MAIB premium schedule is available on the Tasmanian Transport Services website.
Cars which are more than 3 years old need to obtain an independent public passenger vehicle (PPV) inspection before they can be rented out. This will need to be done at a Type 2 Approved Inspection Station. You can see the full list of inspection stations here.
If you're in Hobart, we recommend using Eurotech Automotive at 15-17 Yardley Street in North Hobart [03 6234 3439], where we have negotiated a discounted rate of $80 for the PPV inspection for evee members.
The PPV inspection will need to be carried out every 12 months to remain compliant for rental on evee.
Please send your PPV inspection certificate to email@example.com as we will require this before making your car available on the platform.
Before a renter picks up your vehicle, you must perform a pre-hire inspection of the car. This is a series of checks to ensure that the vehicle is roadworthy. These questions will be automatically included in the handover onboarding checklist that evee provides.
If you fail to carry out the pre-hire inspection before a new booking, evee has the right to cancel the booking and issue you a warning. Should you fail to complete the pre-hire inspection on more than 2 occasions, evee has the right to remove your profile from the platform.
Once your vehicle is registered on the platform, we will be sending you a copy of evee's Hire & Drive accreditation certificate. You must show the renter this certificate during the onboarding process, as the driver may be asked to produce this if asked by a Police Officer or a Transport Safety Investigation Officer.
The certificate can be stored in the glove box or displayed prominently elsewhere in the vehicle.
