A Chat with JuiceCar
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Conveniently located at Hotel Indigo in downtown Athens, we offer electric vehicles, such as the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt, for rent by the hour.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Owning a car is expensive. Add up all the costs: loan payments, insurance, gasoline, maintenance and parking—it’s a lot of money to spend on a piece of equipment that sits idle most of the day. At JuiceCar, we want to help people avoid this burden by giving them access to a car when they need it.
What do you love most about your job?
I love introducing people to the incredibly cool technology in our electric cars. It’s cool to see the looks on their faces when they turn on the car for the first time and see it boot up like a computer, when they discover the lack of engine noise, and when they feel the powerful acceleration.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Several favorites: “Driving this car is like playing a video game!” “The rental process was so easy!” “I’ll never rent from another company again!“
