New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Blancfleet, Inc., a New York-based startup has launched a disruptive crowd funding platform to compete with Hertz’s dream car fleet business. Blancfleet plans to compete on price, fleet, and location.
Crowdfunding allows people to raise capital online for a product or venture, think Kickstarter.com. Blancfleet is using this same disruptive method for raising capital to cut car rental rates in half. Today, Blancfleet is currently offering a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo at $535.00 per day vs. $1,200.00 per day at Hertz. Using a quick price comparison, if you were to rent the same vehicle at Hertz for a 3-day holiday your final tally would be $3,600.00 vs. $1,605.00 on Blancfleet, almost $2,000.00 in savings. Since Blancfleet vehicles are not financed by banks, car rental rates can be cut in half.
Blancfleet works by selling calendar days for new vehicles, up to 365 calendar days in total. When a campaign to buy a new vehicle is successful, members can reserve the car immediately after the vehicle’s delivery, on average 2 weeks. Thereafter, members have up to 36 months to reserve the car for the days purchase. Blancfleet covers the car’s maintenance, storage, and handling cost until the last reservation is fulfilled.
Blancfleet’s current fleet includes a Mercedes S550, Tesla Model S, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes G550, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Mercedes SLS AMG, Porsche 911, and a Nissan GT-R X. The entire fleet includes unlimited free miles vs. 75 miles per day at Hertz.
Blancfleet just launched in New York and has plans to launch in other states soon. Blancfleet is very agile, members can recommend cars they want featured on Blancfleet, think Bugatti, and new locations.
