Uber Car Leasing in Johannesburg, South Africa

 

Uber, valued at over $60B has proven itself to be a profitable business for registered Uber drivers. However, not every intending driver can afford the vehicles required for some Uber services. There exist other options for acquiring vehicles to help drivers run their Uber businesses that would not significantly affect their take home pay at the end of the day. In South Africa, there are location specific options for drivers who want to lease or rent a car for their Uber business. Car Leasing in JohannesburgThese car leasing options will help drivers make a reasonable amount of money despite the fact that they are not using their private cars. This post will be focused on providing Uber drivers with options for car leasing in Johannesburg.

 

Leasing with WesBank

For car leasing in Johannesburg, WesBank seems like a great option. With WesBank, you have a low-fixed cost and a variable rate per km (P.O.A). The initiation fee is about R3,420 and the deal lasts for 36 months. Drivers traveling 5,000km per month can expect to pay from R1, 700 per week for a brand new vehicle of their choice. Only drivers who will be using this vehicle as their ONLY VEHICLE will be able to qualify. You will not be allowed to use a WesBank vehicle if you already have an active vehicle with the exception that the leased vehicle acts as a replacement for the active one.

What’s more, drivers with bad or no credit history can also apply (although subject to review). You also have insurance and maintenance cost covered for you. With few easy steps, you can complete the application process. Begin by filling the form on this page, then you wait for WesBank to review and provide feedback on the outcome of your application – this takes about 14 days. If successful, you will then proceed to choose your preferred vehicle type, vehicle colour, sign your lease agreement and pay the initiation fee. Once completed, you go on to upload all your documents to the Uber application site and you are set.

 

Other Options for Car Leasing in Johannesburg

Other options for car leasing in Johannesburg are discussed below. Your choices range from UberFinder to FleetData, Hertz, Pace, and Europcar.

 

UberFinder

With UberFinder, you have rates as low as R1/per km, a wide range of car models, and you are covered in case there is an accident, Minimum term – 30 days.

 

FleetData

With FleetData, you have an offer that requires just R6,000/month and R0.80/km (FREE 5,000km each month). Your car models can be a Chevrolet Cruze or similar. You have a cover in case of accident, and a minimum term of 90 days.

Europcar is different because they do not provide accident cover. The price stands at about R5,800/month and R0.40/km, with 30 days’ minimum term for a Toyota Corolla or similar.

 

The last time we did an estimate of Uber driver earnings, we reported driver earnings estimate in Johannesburg as R540, 172. This means that the most expensive of the rental services would take out R72, 200 per year, which is less than 20% of driver’s yearly income. You would consider this a good deal for someone without a car.

Top Car Leasing Programs for Uber Drivers and Entrepreneurs

 

Uber Car LeaseIf you are looking to become an Uber driver or an Uber partner, what is the most troublesome barrier that presents itself? Having a car that fits the Uber’s requirements for the particular Uber service you are interested in.

Fortunately, there are now ways to overcome this issue with the help of car leasing programs for Uber! We’re going to discuss some of the top car leasing programs that you might want to consider if you wish to work with Uber.

The programs we will discuss are: Uber Xchange, Breeze, and Flexdrive (this is more a rental program, but we thought it was worthy of discussion too). A quick summary of the aforementioned services is listed below (For our detailed discussion go here):

 

Become an Uber Driver

Uber Xchange Leasing Program:

  • Xchange is a subsidiary company of Uber (similar to Raiser)
  • $250 Deposit to get a lease
  • You are not limited to a Prius (UberX and UberXL cars only)

  • Ability to break a lease before 3 years (for $250)

Breeze Leasing Program:

  • Uber car lease cost:  Expect to pay around $195 a week for the lease
  • $250 Deposit to get a lease

Uber Xchange

The Uber Xchange leasing program is a real game changer for hopeful Uber drivers or partners, as it allows you to rack up unlimited mileage on the leased vehicle. The weekly lease fee is often around 100 dollars, and you get  a choice from a decent variety of different vehicles.

If you change your mind at a later date, you can always terminate the lease with two weeks’ notice and the payment of a $250 fee.

This program can save you a lot of money compared to a lot of other leasing programs, and the unlimited-mileage aspect is really quite astounding.

In this program, you can lease cars like Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen. Unlike some programs, you will not be limited to a Prius.

In fact, there are even some UberXL vehicles that qualify for this program, which is great for drivers that wish to sign up for Uber’s UberXL services. To sign up with Uber Xchange go here:  https://get.uber.com/cl/xchange/

 

Breeze Leasing Program

The second leasing program that you might want to consider is Breeze. Breeze is a flexible company that is a great option for those that wish to enter the Uber business. You need to pay about 250 dollars to get started with the program, and $195 a week as your weekly fee.

You are limited to a Prius with Breeze, but this is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on your preferences.

With Breeze, you are allowed 600 miles a week—additional miles will be charged 0.15$ per mile. However, 600 miles is quite a lot! Make sure you use up all of these miles to get the most bang for your buck.

The main plus, with Breeze, is the ease with which you can return a car. With just two weeks notice, you can return a car:  It is an uncomplicated and easy procedure.

Breeze is a good option for new drivers, in particular, due to the easy return system. It is pricier than the Uber Xchange program, but it is still a noteworthy program to consider if you want to delve into the world of being an Uber contractor without having to purchase a car flat-out. To sign up with breeze go here: https://www.joinbreeze.com/

 

Flexdrive (rental) Program

The third option we looked at for leasing is Flexdrive (even though it isn’t really a leasing program). Flexdrive is a flexible car rental program for drivers that want flexibility (you don’t have to be an Uber driver to use it).

With Flexdrive, you have monthly and weekly rental options; you also have the ability to swap out cars (depending on availability). The beautiful thing about Flexdrive is the fact that you don’t have to worry about maintenance or insurance (which can be a big concern for Uber drivers). To sign up with Flexdrive, expect to pay around $239 per week (cheaper than Breeze, but more expensive than the Xchange progam), and a onetime membership fee of $100. To get started with flexdrive, go here: https://flexdrive.com/

And that’s all there is to know about the top Uber leasing programs around! Figure out what is best for you, and then take your pick so you can start earning money.
