Meet one of our listed RV owners, Luke from Brisbane. Luke joined our caravan hire and RV sharing community in early 2016, with two Ezytrail camper trailers he’d purchased from Ezytrail in Brisbane.
After a brief chat with our COO Josh, Luke made the decision to use Camplify to launch himself into the world of RV hiring as an investment strategy. Luke and Josh spoke about the way the Camplify team work with owners to simplify the process, as well as the team’s overall goal of building the world’s best and most supportive RV hiring system. A goal we’re well on the way to achieving for caravan / camper owners and hirers alike.
Within a few days of adding his first two camper trailers to the website, Luke had his first hire.
In fact, in his first three weeks on Camplify Luke’s camper trailer earned him over $2,700!
Luke received so many early enquiries and found the experience so easy that he decided to invest in another camper trailer to hire out on the site. He says he knew he was onto a winner with both the Ezytrail and Camplify when he had all three camper trailers hired out at once within just a few weeks.
“At first I just wanted to purchase an Ezytrail camper trailer to get away with the family. Then I had the idea to offset the cost of the purchase and making it a business, after seeing some info about Camplify on Facebook. I made the decision to work with Camplify after I spoke with the team. Our 30-minute phone call filled me with so much confidence I thought ‘Gee, this is a no-brainer’.
Camplify provided the perfect platform for me to launch this; they had all the answers on insurance, they hold and manage the bond for me, they deal with the hirer if something goes wrong and they do a great job of screening their hirers.
As I thought about things some more, I began to think ‘Why not really try to make it work as a little sideline business for myself and my family?’ I take this really seriously and so do the guys from Camplify.
I love camping and one of my goals in life is to work in the camping industry. Josh spoke to me about the technology they are building in the Camplify booking system and the way they work with their hirers. I got it straight away. I don’t want to spend all of my time dealing with tech issues, I want to provide good customer service and make sure my camper trailers are ready to go.
I have really bought into the Camplify system and I think providing them with five per cent on all of my bookings is very cost-effective for the complex booking system they are building.
Personally, I can’t wait to add my fourth camper trailer to Camplify, in the not too distant future.”
Luke takes all of his bookings though Camplify and our technology team works with him to develop features and solutions in our tech roadmap that assist him and other customers like him longer term. He did extensive research before making his decision to go with the Ezytrail brand. In particular, he liked the heavy-duty construction, after-sales service and many of the Ezytrail features.
Luke is a smart operator and because of his commitment to the Ezytrail brand he has become the go-to man when an Ezytrail customer wants to try out a camper before they commit to purchase. Luke provides prospective Ezytrail customers with the full experience for a low-cost hire, which helps them to know they have made the right decision to purchase. If you would like to find out more about Luke or how you too can work with Camplify to provide hirers with amazing experiences (and turn your RV into a profitable investment in the process) contact the team today on 1300 416 133.
