MIAMI, Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FlexWheels announced today it has officially launched its vehicle mobility services platform in South Florida and has begun providing select consumers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties access to various vehicles through a subscription app available to download in both Android and iPhone app stores.
Erik Day, co-founder, says, "We believe that there are many changes ahead for the automotive industry; both for consumers and dealers. Ridesharing, car sharing, autonomy, connectivity, electrification, and advances in Artificial Intelligence are all factors contributing towards a rapid change on the horizon." FlexWheels' goal is to design a platform with products and services to address these changes while leveraging the existing dealer network infrastructure that provides a scalable and seamless customer experience.
Co-founders, Erik Day, Larry Zinn, and Warren Zinn of the Warren Henry Auto Group in Miami, FL, have created a shared vehicle mobility platform through an exclusive licensing partnership to launch the service in South Florida. FlexWheels will offer subscribers the ability to access different makes and models within their subscription category. Consumers have the convenience of flipping in and out of vehicles through an application on their smart phone with the support of its concierge network that will deliver their vehicle to them.
Warren Zinn, co-founder, says, "Consumers, Businesses, and Governmental agencies are expressing interest in the subscription services model as opposed to conventional ownership. We believe our app addresses the needs in both the commercial and governmental sectors; especially in denser urban territories with large populations and heavy traffic congestion."
"Consumers are already accustomed to subscribing to products or services as evidenced by the success of companies providing these types of services such as Netflix, Airbnb, and Spotify," added Larry Zinn, co-founder of FlexWheels. "Mobility and transportation are going to be a part of this same digital evolution."
FlexWheels offers subscribers two pricing tiers. The Adventurer is $1,799 per month with a range of vehicles averaging $50,000-$60,000 and the Premier tier offered at a rate of $2,099 per month has vehicles valued anywhere from $60,000 to $75,000. There is a one-time non-refundable activation fee of $700 for all new FlexWheels memberships.
Both plans' flat monthly fee includes rights to a vehicle, taxes, maintenance, and insurance, with no hard credit pull and no contract. The subscription allows up to six (6) flips per month for Adventurer members and eight (8) flips per month for Premier members. FlexWheels has no mileage limits; however, subscribers can only be in a single vehicle no more than 5,000 miles. Adventure subscribers have the ability to access the Premiere garage for an additional daily rate of $25 if an alternative model is desired and additional flips are available at $50 per flip.
FlexWheels is open to anyone 21 or over with a valid license, clean driving record and background check. Anyone who is between the ages of 21-25 will be subject to an additional $70/month charge.
"Our program is currently lifestyle based," says Vince Iafano, Director of Business Development. "We offer subscribers the ability to flip into different vehicles based on their needs for one convenient monthly payment. If they need a seven passenger SUV for a certain occasion, but then want to flip back into a sedan or sports car then FlexWheels can provide that service."
FlexWheels is a subscription-based vehicle mobile app with headquarters in Davie, FL. FlexWheels, powered by Clutch Technologies, offers its subscribers the flexibility of changing vehicles as their lifestyle changes, allowing the consumer to enjoy the perfect car for every moment.
