Consumer Case Study - Sophia Phillips, Millennial

Due to the uncertainty of her work during COVID-19, Uni Graduate Sophia Phillips did not want to lock herself into a long-term financial commitment by purchasing or leasing a car. Instead she opted to access a vehicle through car subscription, giving her flexibility and peace of mind, knowing she could cancel her subscription anytime by giving 30 days notice. 

Sydney-based university graduate and retail assistant Sophia Phillips found herself without a car when her vehicle was suddenly recalled due to faulty airbags at the beginning of March 2020. With her retail shifts being cut due to the pandemic crisis, Sophia wasn’t in a financial position to commit to purchasing a new car, but she still needed a vehicle. Thankfully, a close friend suggested Carly car subscription as a flexible, short-term solution to accessing a car on a month-to-month basis with no deposit needed. This was the perfect short-term car solution for Sophia to continue to live her life without any financial stress or burden.

“Like many millennials, I rely heavily on my car because I value experiences and my social life. While you may expect to use your car less during a pandemic, I wasn’t keen to catch public transport, so I felt a lot safer in my own car. I think a lot of people are still thinking they’d prefer to drive so Carly is one way they can do it without the long-term financial commitment or worry about hidden costs. Everything is included, you just have to add fuel, and because I was driving a hybrid that was hardly ever!”

“One thing I really loved about Carly was that I was able to choose a car I wouldn’t necessarily have considered, or been able to afford if I was to purchase a car outright. I selected a hybrid car, which was a fantastic experience”.

Consumer Case Study - Jake Hanlon, Financial Analyst

Jake Hanlon was actively looking to buy a car during the COVID-19 lockdown, but after seeing Carly on LinkedIn he did his research and discovered that a car subscription was an even better, more cost effective option for a driver under the age of 25.

Before discovering Carly, Financial Analyst Jake Hanlon, 24, had intended to go down the route of purchasing or financing a car. After facing 100’s of decisions that could ultimately end up negatively impacting his finances, he was relieved to come across Carly on Linkedin. After doing a solid amount of research into Carly and the concept of car subscription, he determined that when you include the cost of insurance, registration, maintenance, road-side assistance and depreciation it actually worked out to be more cost efficient to subscribe to a car, particularly as he was under the age of 25. Something that was also of interest to Jake during his research was the ability to select your payment plan based on the amount of kms you need. During the time he subscribed to a car he was working from home, allowing him to subscribe to a cost effective entry plan, which made the idea of car subscription even cheaper and more appealing.

“When I first read about Carly I thought that no deposit, just one month’s notice to stop or pause the subscription and the servicing and maintenance included was too good to be true, but Carly really does offer all that!”  

“At my age you want things to be as quick and easy as possible, and you don’t want to make any long-term commitments, especially financially, so a car subscription was a no-brainer.”

Business Case Study - Lust Liquor

Two best mates from Sydney’s Upper North Shore, Nick Rowell and Marc Lindberg, founded Lust Liquor, a company making low-calorie alcoholic drinks. They turned to Carly for a flexible, low-risk way to access a car for their growing business.  

Being a small start-up, subscribing to a car, with no deposit, no lock-in contract and the ability to cancel at any-time with 30 days notice allowed Nick and Marc to hire additional sales people and scale their business, without the commitment of fixed financing or an outflow of capital. It also helped them manage their cash flow as they knew exactly what their monthly out-going costs were going to be for the vehicle.

“For us as a start-up, the main feature that appealed to us initially was that we were not locked into any contracts. Once using Carly, we discovered that the service Carly provides is so much more than that, with its flexibility to stop and start at any point, fixed-price business model and exceptional customer service.”

Business Case Study - Claire Newell, Elope to Sydney

Mother of two and founder of Elope to Sydney, Claire Newell, recently turned to Carly for a second car after her wedding business saw a dramatic uplift following the initial COVID-19 lockdown period. 

As a result of mandated COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings such as weddings, Claire found herself with next to no work at the start of 2020. This significant loss of income forced Claire and her husband to review their finances and determine that while their second car was useful in the busier times, it was not necessary during the quieter periods, so they decided to sell their ute. 

However, as lock-down began to lift and restrictions slightly eased, wedding trends began to adapt to a post-COVID world. Niche wedding businesses, such as Elope to Sydney, that cater to smaller, more intimate affairs experienced a rapid uplift in bookings. Australians were moving away from booking traditional big weddings in an effort to avoid the potential for cancellations and money loss. As business began to take off, Claire realised her family needed a second car again to manage the increased work commitments and the busy schedule of their two daughters. 

Claire visited the Carly website and found they had broken down the cost for Australians in a similar situation to her who are seeking an additional car during busier periods of the year but have no need for a second family car all year round. Carly’s sums show that Claire will save a total of close to $4062 over a six-month period by choosing to subscribe to a Hyundai Tucson compared to owning a vehicle.

“I think everyone is looking to have an easier year in 2021 and that means looking for safe and low-risk alternatives for their financial commitments. A subscription model such as Carly’s presents a familiar and risk-free alternative to a big financial outlay which gives you the flexibility and freedom we are all craving. It’s been a lifesaver because it’s allowed us to divide and conquer over this chaotic period with the girls and work,”
