We have the opportunity to establish a car club probably based in Welland with support from Malvern Hills Car Club and an offer of a grant from Malvern Hills District Council
If you are a two-car household, membership of the club would allow you to retain one car for daily use and have access to another for those occasions when a second or specialist car is needed. As a member, you would have access to a pool of cars that includes a seven-seater and a pick-up.
If you use a car less than 3 times a week you will make considerable savings, even compared to running a small 5 to 8-year-old car. When you consider insurance, road tax, depreciation, repairs, servicing, and the other costs of running a car, membership of a car club quickly delivers large savings. And you’ll get cashback from selling your old car as well (the club can help with that too).
Maybe you have a low-cost short-range electric car for local trips and would like a petrol car occasionally for longer journeys.
Additional benefits to consider include:
someone else takes care of the servicing, taxing, insurance etc
one less car parked in the neighbourhood/ on your drive
avoiding unexpected costs of repair and replacement
reducing your carbon footprint.
There is a monthly subscription of £7.50. Currently, mileage is charged at 15p mile and you pay for the time you use a car. Costs are set out on www.malvernhills-carclubs.org.uk
