Kerb, the Australian ‘Airbnb invention for Parking’ has launched in Kenya to allow car users find parking easily as well as let homeowners rent out their spare spaces to make extra cash.
Launched in Australia in October 2016 by Rob Brown and Matt Salmon , Kerb is live across the world in 19 languages and localized in 300 cities. The Kenya launch will be shortly followed by a regional expansion across East Africa.
“We’re really excited about the benefits that Kerb is going to have for users”, says Co-founder Rob Brown. “The app allows you to list an entire car park up in minutes, and each individual bay can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.”
The Airbnb platform changes the conventional view about where people can park their cars, motorbikes, boats and even helicopters! Kerb’s technology unlocks empty spaces across the world’s busiest cities, helping individuals, businesses and governments save time and money.
The app allows you to list an entire car park up in minutes, and each individual bay can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.
Kerb’s Car Park Management Platform allows leasers to list an entire car park in minutes: each individual space can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type. Leasers have the option to apply instant book to their spaces.
If leasers prefer long-term users in some car parks, they have the option for the user to pay weekly, or monthly, as a direct debit. The user is then required to give notice to end the lease.
Kerb allows leasers to add their own terms to the app, which the user must accept when they click to book. Registration and other documents can be collected if required. Kerb provides signage for willing bay owners free of charge.
