Need a truck? Borrow it!

Whether you’re gearing up to move to your new apartment, make a big run to Home Depot for your next DIY project, or an Amazon Flex driver ready to deliver, you need the right vehicle (and your hatchback is just not going to do the trick). Fluid Market peer-to-peer truck share to the rescue! Whatever job you have to tackle, you can borrow the truck you need on the Fluid Market truck share app starting as low as $5/hour. No more awkwardly asking your neighbor to borrow their truck, and no more standing in line for hours at an expensive corporate truck rental company. Fluid Market saves you time and money by helping you find the vehicle you need in just a few clicks.

Borrowing a truck on Fluid Market is easy and quick:

  1. Download the Fluid Market truck share app on the App Store or Google Play.
  2. Sign up and upload a picture of your driver’s license, a quick selfie, and your credit card information. The first time you rent, we’ll verify your driver’s license and credit card, which generally takes just a few minutes.
  3. Search for the vehicle you need by category, location, and availability.
  4. Reserve your truck!

Vehicle pick up and drop off is also a piece of cake. Once you reserve a vehicle, we’ll send you the vehicle’s location and specific instructions both via email and in the app. At pick up and drop off, you’ll be asked to take pictures of the interior and exterior of the vehicle to share the vehicle’s condition. Throughout the reservation, you can communicate with the lender directly through the in-app messaging feature.

3 Essential Tools for Fall

Fall is here! With the golden leaves and chillier weather, it’s one of our most beautiful seasons. Fall is also when your yard becomes a messy pit of leaves, sticks and other debris. Not only do we have to keep our yards clean, we also have to prepare our lawns for the upcoming winter.

Are you ready for fall? If not, Fluid’s here to catch you. Here are three essential tools for fall clean up or winter prep – and there’s no use in owning them if you can rent them for cheap on Fluid!

Meet The Team: 5 Fun Facts About Andrew!

Every month, we feature one of our awesome Fluid team members. This week, meet Fluid’s Business Development Manager, Andrew!

You always know when Andrew’s arrived at the office because he has the biggest presence. His booming voice, his giant smile – and his mustache is pretty epic. He started in BD just a few weeks ago, but is already killing it.

Andrew took some time to sit down with us and chat New England, Vonnegut, and Lyft. Check out his fun facts, below!


1. What’s your favorite thing about Fluid?
Nobody says, “that’s not my job.” It’s great to work for an organization where your teammates are more interested in group performance than on individual success. A rising tide floats all boats. Fluid is a great example of that.

2. Where are you from?
I’m from Boston, so I am a proud New Englander. If you want to hear what it’s like to win 10 Championships between your 10th birthday and your 27th, give me a call. We can talk about how Tom Brady is the greatest QB to ever play the game.

3. What do you like to read?
I’m a voracious consumer of print news: Times, WSJ, the Economist. I love following the butterfly effect of geopolitics. For example, how legislation in one part of the world, thousands of miles away, could trigger currency devaluations, or spark negative consumer sentiment, or boost popular support on a trade initiative back home. It’s wild how interconnected everything is.
If I’m reading fiction, I’m probably buried in something by Vonnegut or Hemingway.

4. What is your favorite app, other than Fluid? (;
Lyft – I’m a big proponent of products that make things easy (which is why it’s so great to work at Fluid). So when I want to go someplace in the city without having to drive, which is fairly often, Lyft is my go-to.

5. Describe yourself in three words.
Ginger. Entertaining. Analytic.


We are excited that our team continues to grow- check our our careers page to see what positions we’re hiring for!
