Brian Karlson, CEO said “We’re delighted to strengthen the team with Dennis’ long experience in the automotive industry. His US expertise will be critical as we move into the next phase of Transfercar’s growth.”
Dennis Round added “This is a fantastic new challenge for me personally and I’m very much looking forward to driving Transfercar towards becoming the industry’s preferred choice of relocation partner.”
Founded in 2008, Transfercar previously took investment from Norwegian angel investor, Nils August Andresen, of NZ$150,000 during February 2008.
Transfercar runs rental car relocation websites for customers in USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Transfercar helps people and rental car companies make and save money on under-used rental cars.
Rental operators need to relocate cars between their branches in order to position their fleet for new hires. Transfercar facilitates contact between rental operators that need to relocate their vehicles, and travellers who would like to drive their cars free of charge.
The rental operators submit their relocations to Transfercar using the web or integrations with fleet management systems. Prospective drivers then request the relocations through the website, mobile phones or email. The Transfercar solution delivers financial benefits to both rental car companies and flexible travellers.
