Borne out of the need to make it easier to find and book comfortable vehicles in Nigeria, Hire Beta Car, an online car hire company has announced it is coming out with innovations in Nigeria’s car rental space.
According to a statement from the company, the growing need to find a good car to hire for special occasions, business meeting or for wedding ceremonies birthed the company.
Ubong Isemin, spokesperson for Hire Beta Car said: “Hiring a car is as simple as going to our website or calling us, and we’ll have a car ready for you. And if you have a car for hire, you simply list it on our website – a place that is specifically designed for your target market.
“Let’s say you were looking to hire a car for your wedding, or you and a few friends want to go from Lagos to Ibadan and you need a minivan to take you. On the other hand, say you have a minivan for hire but you don’t really know where or how to market your service. So, your only option is to tell your friends about it and maybe list your car on classified websites among people selling phones, offering houses for sale with Hire Beta Car, both these scenarios are taken care of.
“Whether you are looking for a premium sedan for a business meeting, or you need an SUV for your wedding or any other special event, Hire Beta Car will make this happen.” He added that they offer a very wide variety of cars, everything from a Toyota Corolla to a bullet proof G63 to Rolls Royce Wraith.
Explaining further Isemin said: “Currently in the Nigerian business landscape, there’s nobody doing what we’re doing. As I mentioned earlier, if you want to hire a car, you’d need to know someone who offers that service. Conversely, if you have a car for hire, you’d need to know someone who can refer clients to you. With Hire Beta Car, we have created a hub where people looking for vehicles to hire, and people that have cars for hire can go and transact transparently.”
On what makes the company standout he remarked: “Our goal is to democratise the car hire market and make it so that Nigerians no longer need to know someone who knows someone who has a car to hire; hiring a car is simply a call away to Hire Beta Car.
“We are a third-party service, just like Uber or Taxify, but for luxury cars, SUVs, buses and vans. We also do long-distance travel and long-term hire,” he added.
“To be part of the Hire Beta Car experience, our operations currently in Uyo and Lagos are designed for everyone who has ever wanted to hire a vehicle but does not know where to start. This includes people looking for a good car to hire for a day, people travelling to a new city and need a car to carry them around, people coming into Nigeria for the holidays and need a car for the period they’re around,” he concluded.
