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!

Great new features on the latest Fluid Market app & web experience

One thing we love at Fluid Market is shipping more, great features to our users. Our team constantly updates our mobile app and website to bring the best possible experiences to our lenders and borrowers.

We’re excited to announce some new features for our app and website that make sharing trucks on Fluid Market even easier.

  • Safety & security enhancements: We are committed to creating the safest truck sharing community. We’re proud to announce that we’ve developed our own proprietary, state of the art user vetting system that’s connected to 51 DMVs in the U.S. Our intelligent platform verifies new users based on over 80 points of reference, ensuring a safe and secure experience for our community.
  • Auto-approval for new borrowers: We’ve greatly reduced the time required to approve a new borrower. The majority of our new users are now approved within two minutes.* We know how important it is to lock in new reservations as quickly as possible, ensuring lenders build their side hustle and borrowers can get the vehicle they need as quickly as possible. This feature is available for both our iOS users on the App Store and our Android users on Google Play.
  • Optimized image uploading: We’ve optimized image upload in the app, allowing users to upload images in less than one second, down from 8 seconds previously. This helps ensure that lenders have more information on their vehicle, and that borrowers can more quickly move through the pickup and drop off inspections. This feature is available for our iOS users on the App Store and our Android users on Google Play.
  • Website: We recently relaunched our website enabling users to upload and book a truck as they would from our mobile app. Our website is now a key component of driving additional transactions and ultimately growing the community.

We hear fantastic ideas from our users for future product features, and we’d love to hear your feedback! Please send all product feedback and feature requests to feedback@fluidmarket.com. We’ll share regular product updates here on our blog so you can stay on top of the latest and greatest. #TruckYEAH

*Depending on the state DMV, the approval process could take a few hours and up to one business day. If it’s your first time renting, we recommend booking one day in advance. After your ID is approved, all of your future transactions will be approved instantaneously.
