Own car i always advocate is the best option follow by rental (if u dun want this liability) and least worst choice LTO.

U can work out your own budget and see if own car is better then rental..

A quick breakdown for part timers:

Own car (minus car insurance, road tax etc just focus on installment) - weekly cost definitely lower then rental. Divide by 7 days its not difficult to cover weekly cost.

Rental car - as rental is daily basis u need to drive even on weekends both days to cover else drive longer hours on weekdays to cover back. If u got ft job ... u still got energy to drive long hours on weekdays?


In terms of long term, owning a car is definitely much a better deal, of course ideally a new car which means less worries of breakdowns and maintenance. Why I say long term because if one has decided to drive PHV for maybe 2-3 years full-time, then the ROI is definitely for buying a car.


Btw, anyone here is renting cars from non grab/gojek partners to drive phv??? I understand the downside is minus the rebates. I see quite a few rental like smove, tribe and few other neighborhood ones.

smove apart from e hourly rental, u have to pay for mileage charges, cannot anyhow roam.

be decisive. thk so much for what

How much is your 22 trips?

for mine is top tier is 22 trips instead of yours 20 trips.

Lol when he start liao he will ask...

Tyre should pump how much
Aircon set what temp
Music play how loud

This line is not rocket science.
You just have to dive into it blindly.
Then you slowly tweak and adjust once you understand it.
You will have some sense of direction after the first 2wks.

But must face sun and rain (nowadays seldom rain). Customers and vendors also have attitude problems, but once a while only lah.

No jam and low cost are true.

Overall, still more pros than cons.

I saw a handful of people using car/van/lorry to do GF. Parking is really a big problem. :s22:

Only face hot sun during lunch hour.
But most of the time you'll be inside the shopping centre/restaurant blowing aircon anyway.

Night is cooling, especially riding, natural wind.

Customer attitude problem is not significant, the most you face them is 30seconds or less.
Try sitting in a car with a cheapo mom and a baby for 30mins.

Restaurant staff are usually very friendly since they are in the service line as well.
Once they see your face regularly, things will usually go very smoothly.
They will sometimes give you a drink.
If your relationship with them is good, you can have a discounted meal at their restaurant.

I'm also a rider, and I used to do roo for 3 months before phv.
Food delivery after 9 I can still go out and meet friends, wake up 11am.

Phv wake up at sunrise, at night everybody go home then you go home.

4wheeler do food delivery asking for trouble.
Jam on the road.
Jam to enter carpark of shopping mall.
Difficulty finding lots during weekend dinner time.
Jam to exit carpark.
If office building only meant for season parking, you park far far and walk.
If small condo security ask you park outside the condo, risk of summon. (At least for bike, you park on the pavement at the guardhouse, which is still under condo premises).

Only thing better.
Rain, you can continue to work.
But no extra income.
So.....for what?

Same story again, only can hold one (1) acct at one-time.
Sianz.

Note, 4wheelers can delivery now.

Smove is only used for Grab Familiarisation.

I use Smove to start. No rental commitment.
