UhaulCarShare Now Available At Grand Canyon University Just In Time For The Fall Semester

Stocks in this article: UHAL

PHOENIX, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  UhaulCarShare is partnering with Grand Canyon University in providing advanced car-sharing services to its community of students, faculty and staff. Grand Canyon University now will have more transportation options, allowing individuals to maintain a sustainable lifestyle in one cost-effective and convenient package.



For the start of the 2013 fall semester, UhaulCarShare is placing two vehicles on campus-- a 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid and a 2013 Toyota Scion.  These brand-new vehicles will be parked on campus at Lot 4 Section C across from Camelback Hall. Membership for the use of these vehicles will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the Grand Canyon University community.  Each UhaulCarShare vehicle takes up to 20 personally owned vehicles off the road, reduces parking congestion and improves air quality.  

" Grand Canyon University is excited to begin offering the UhaulCarShare service to our students in 2013," stated John-Paul Reiger, director of Residence Life, Grand Canyon University. "This new service brings much-needed flexibility to our students when deciding to bring a car to campus, allows students to get off campus in a very affordable way and adds to the list of amenities that Grand Canyon University offers to its students.  We are excited to see this program grow!"

UhaulCarShare has a unique-yet-flexible rate system that allows members 18 years of age and older to enjoy all the benefits of driving without having to worry about overpaying for mileage.  Drivers pay only for what they use, by reserving a car for as little as an hour or for up to three days.  Rates start at $4.95 per hour (plus $0.59 per mile). For those who drive longer distances, UhaulCarShare offers a capped rate which includes 180 free miles. The Ford C-Max can be reserved at $9 per hour or $68 per day and the Toyota Scion at $8 per hour or $64 per day. There is no start-up application fee or annual membership dues.

"UhaulCarShare allows individuals to eliminate the financial burden of owning a car, without giving up the flexibility and freedom a car provides," stated Mariah Reid, program director, UhaulCarShare. "In addition, the service provides peace of mind knowing the insurance, maintenance, reserved parking spots and 24/7 roadside assistance are included in the rates." 

Car sharing is easier than ever before with the new UhaulCarShare advanced technology approval process, which allows members to drive away in minutes. All you need is a valid driver's license and major credit card. Simply visit us online at from your home computer or any mobile device; fill out your profile, take a picture of your driver's license, then take a picture of yourself...and get ready to hit the road.  With this new technology, an approval process that once took as long as 24-hours now takes hardly any time at all. UhaulCarShare drivers now enjoy the flexibility of being able to manage their account, make a new reservation or extend a current reservation with ease from any mobile device or computer.
