Forget Fantasy Football. Investing with Fluid pays off.

We had the chance to catch up with Chris Murphy, who began lending four box trucks on Fluid six months ago. Chris, a Denver-based mortgage lender and a liquor store owner, decided to buy box trucks to lend on Fluid as he saw synergistic opportunities with his existing businesses. In the near term, Chris was interested in generating cash by renting out his box trucks to the Fluid community, while longer term, he aims to integrate the trucks into his business models by providing moving and delivery services for his customers.

Chris earns about $900 per month per truck, for a total of over $3500 each month — that’s more than $42,000 annually. What’s most important for Chris? His investment in renting trucks on Fluid doesn’t cost him a significant amount of his own time. He finds it easy to communicate with borrowers through the in-app messaging feature, and receives great customer care support from the Fluid team. Chris is also seeing several repeat customers, including moving companies who need to increase their own fleets. He keeps his trucks parked in high profile locations, ensuring their accessibility for borrowers.

“Lending trucks on Fluid has been a super profitable experience for me, putting over $3500 in my pocket each month. The best part? I put in about the same amount of time I do on my Fantasy Football app,” said Chris Murphy, Fluid lender. “The Fluid team has helped me at each step of the way — from sourcing the vehicles, to maintenance, to customer care — allowing me to save valuable time. Given the demand from borrowers I’m seeing, I’d like to expand my fleet on Fluid — if I can make it work for four trucks, I can make it work for 100 trucks.”

Listing your vehicle on Fluid takes less than ten minutes and can put thousands of dollars in your pocket each year. Interested in learning how you can get started? Check out our lender success page and connect with us: customercare@fluidmarket.com

College students get their move on with Fluid Market

College students move a whole lot — into and out of the dorm, into off-campus housing, and back home at the start of the summer. Fluid Market offers a great way for students to save time and money as they transition to a new dorm, apartment, or shared house with their friends. Students can find the truck they need to get the job done with just a few clicks on the Fluid Market app, starting as low as $5/hour. We take the stress out of truck rental so students can get back to the important stuff — hitting the books!

We’re so excited to feature Emma, a student at the University of Colorado, who rented a small box truck on Fluid Market for her recent move into her new apartment. Emma picked up the box truck super early in the morning to start her move, taking advantage of the 24/7 accessibility of the vehicle. With a little muscle help from her friends, Emma completed her move in one day, and saved hundreds of dollars by using Fluid Market.

“Renting a truck on Fluid Market couldn’t have been easier and saved me a ton of cash,” shared Emma, a student at the University of Colorado. “I downloaded the app and found the perfect truck just a couple of miles from where I live. I’ll definitely use Fluid Market truck share for my next move.”

Whether you’re tackling your first move or your tenth, hack your next moving experience by using Fluid Market to find the right vehicle at the lowest cost. Download the app today to get started!

Celebrating two years of Fluid Market with a $25K donation to Denver non-profits

We launched Fluid Market in Denver just about two years ago, and our vibrant community of entrepreneurs, lenders and borrowers inspires us everyday. As we approach our second birthday, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to give back.

We’re proud to announce that we’re committing $25,000 in Fluid Market credit to non-profit organizations in the greater Denver metro area. Twenty-five organizations will receive $1000 of Fluid Market credit each to help further their mission. The wide variety of items available on Fluid Market can be incredibly helpful for local non-profits as they host events, transport their teams and goods around town, and run their daily operations.

Our partnership with Trips for Kids Denver Metro is a great illustration of how Fluid Market credit can help jumpstart charitable efforts. Trips for Kids Denver Metro is dedicated to giving underserved and at-risk youth the opportunity to experience and learn about the natural beauty of Colorado from the seat of a mountain bike. Fluid Market has partnered with Trips for Kids Denver Metro to provide box trucks to transport the bikes to the foothill and mountain parks that the kids explore.

Here’s the best part of our birthday gift: we’re looking to our Fluid Market community of lenders and borrowers in the Denver area to nominate local non-profits making a difference. Know a great local non-profit that could benefit from the items available on Fluid Market? Submit your nomination here by Friday, May 11 @ 5 PM MT. Our team will review nominations and announce the winners in weeks following.

Fluid Market is thrilled to give back to the Mile High City, and we thank you for your help in nominating fantastic local non-profits committed to improving our community.
