The company is offering discount deals for their services, an initiative brought to the company’s co-founder by the community of RV owners.
“They’re the ones who reach out to us saying, ‘listen, there’s not as many being rented out right now, and clearly not as man people travelling, but these assets could be used by the frontline workers, the health-care facilities or any essential service that’s looking to self-isolate,” said RVezy co-founder Michael McNaught.
The community of RV owners using the platform has banded together, reducing rental rates, to make the service affordable for anyone looking to self isolate.
“Everybody’s helping out in one way or another,” RV owner Brennan Wight said.
“I mean, lending my trailer is a pretty small thing to do, but it’s something that I can do.”
Wight isn’t the only owner who uses the RVEZY platform to volunteer to help out.
Going above and beyond simply discounting rates, owners have also said they’re willing to deliver their RVs to those looking to self-isolate, McNaught said.
“We have owners who are willing to deliver three to four hours away, knowing that they’re helping against this fight.”
“I mean, I’ve gone, in the summer, as far as 300km,” Wight added. “So, I mean we can go farther than that to help people out.”
The company already has over 200 requests for RVs and McNaught believes the number will only continue to grow as more people are made aware of the service.
“Just helping out these organizations — so, hospitals, hydro companies, police officers, paramedics — reaching out to them and educating them that this is a great resource available to them,” McNaught said.
