Step 1: The Basics - Describe your camper
Here, you'll be invited to fill out the basic information on your camper.
From naming your listing offering a thorough description, to setting your house rules and even travel restrictions (for example if you don't allow pets in your campervan), everything is possible here.
Provide accurate and plentiful information so that campers can know if your vehicle is right for them and to cut back on avoidable questions and messaging. The more thorough you are here, the easier the rental process will be in the future.
Step 4: Pricing your campervan
A lot of factors go into the process of making a successful listing and ensuring happy campers on both sides of the deal. In order to get the return you need on your vehicle and to make sure renters are getting a fair price, take a few moments to come up with a competitive offer that accurately reflects the value of your camper.
Don’t know where to start when it comes to setting a rate? Here’s your comprehensive pricing checklist.
Step 5: A picture says a thousand words
This last step is crucial to attracting renters. Make sure to upload high quality photos of both the interior and exterior of your vehicle so travellers know what to expect. This is a key part of your camper description, as it makes the first impression to potential travellers.
Check out our pro tips on taking great campervan photos which will intrigue future renters! Once you have all of the steps completed, click the red button that says "Finish" and your listing is off for reviewal.
While we work to make the process as quick and streamlined as possible, the reviewal of your listing can take some time (up to 8 weeks if your TSL has not yet been processed). This gives you plenty of time to get your campervan up to scratch and ready for visitors. This is your opportunity to double check your maintenance, dust off the cupboards, clean your sheets, and make a cozy welcome for future travellers. Then all you need to do is wait for our notification email that your description has been reviewed. At that time, it will also go live on the SHAREaCAMPER site, and you can kick up your heels and let the requests for bookings roll in.
Attention New Zealand Owners: One very important thing to note for proper registration is the Transport Service Licence. New Zealand requires this official certificate for all rental vehicles. It is a bit of paperwork, but it is our top priority at SHAREaCAMPER to help you attain this. All you need to do is print out this form, fill in your details, sign it and post it to SHAREaCAMPER, PO Box 20195, Bishopdale, Christchurch 8543.
