Key points: 

  • DriveMyCar is a flexible car sharing service for consumers and businesses, available in major cities across Australia.
  • DriveMyCar supply cars to Uber drivers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane

Earlier this month, General Motors announced that the Holden brand will shut down in Australia and New Zealand. Maven and Holden Financial Services operations will also close in Australia.

While there are many unknowns about the shutdown of the Holden and Maven brands, a significant issue is what happens to Maven rideshare drivers.

The impact of Maven closing its operations will have a major impact on the rideshare market in Australia with hundreds of  rideshare drivers facing the loss of their vehicles, which are their livelihood. Maven was still relatively new but it is disappointing to see someone trying to innovate in the auto industry fail to survive. 

To help rideshare drivers disadvantaged by the closure of Maven, DriveMyCar is offering all current Maven rideshare drivers up to 60% off their initial one month rental with DriveMyCar.

How DriveMyCar helps Rideshare drivers

While we can highlight our experience and expertise, we know the best way to show how DriveMyCar helps rideshare drivers is to let them do the talking.

I rented a car on a long term lease for Uber with DriveMyCar because not only did they have the best price of all the companies, but they had the warmest, most patient customer service over the phone. Changing cars has been easy and bonds have been refunded quickly. Nothing is a hassle for them. I would recommend them wholeheartedly! – Peter B, Melbourne

Customer service was excellent, all payments handled perfectly and was well explained to me. The vehicle I received was to my expectations, I am currently using the vehicle for Uber driving and it meets my needs. – George D, NSW

Excellent customer service team. Bonds and payments are easy handled. The price compared to other competitors is reasonable. I had received the car as I expected in good condition. Recently I returned to Australia for good with my family, so I needed a car urgently for transportation private use as well as part time for Uber. DriveMyCar saved my life. – Samuel L, Sydney NSW
