As part of the company's national vision, Carly has launched in Queensland.
Operated by Collaborate Corporation, an ASX-listed company that also runs peer-to-peer car-rental provider DriveMyCar, Carly is an alternative to buying a car or committing to a loan or lease. Carly customers can choose from a range of new and used vehicles, from economy to luxury brands and hatchback to SUV models. The monthly subscription fee includes comprehensive insurance, registration, ongoing maintenance and roadside assistance.
Carly launched in Sydney in March 2019 and was quickly followed by a Melbourne launch. In November 2019, it received a $2.2 million strategic investment and supply of vehicles from leasing specialist SG Fleet. As Australia’s third-largest city, Brisbane was the next state capital in Carly’s national vision and by securing cars from Cricks Tweed in Tweed Heads it is able to provide coverage on the Gold Coast and northern NSW regions.
Since its launch, Carly has formed key partnerships with Hyundai, Turners Automotive Group, Suttons Motors, i-Motor, and Booran Motors. By providing subscribers with the freedom to choose a car to suit their lifestyle, Carly’s car subscription offers Australian drivers a different approach to car access.
Carly recently partnered with Booran Motors, one of Victoria’s leading automotive groups, and worked with i- Motor to become the first car subscription service to launch technology that enables customers to subscribe to vehicles directly on car dealer websites.
Another key partnership has recently been confirmed with Turners Automotive Group in New Zealand. The largest seller of cars in NZ, Turners will launch Carly in New Zealand and has committed to supply 200 vehicles to the Carly fleet, with the platform set to launch in New Zealand in March 2020.
Carly is now available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast and coming soon to other Australian capital cities. Carly is planned to launch in New Zealand in March 2020.
