At Stratton we have all types of customers who need to finance a car. From first car buyers to parents with a growing family upgrading to a people mover, we pride ourselves on finding a deal that’s right for them.

What we are now seeing is an increasing number of people in Australia looking to own a car so they can start a business as a rideshare driver. There are a number of rideshare companies out there, including Uber, Taxify, Ola and now DiDi, and all have different requirements and commission rates. To find out more and compare, there is a great article on that does the comparison for you.

If you’re looking to join the 80,000 other Australian Uber drivers, eager to earn some additional income and be your own boss, there are a few options out there to help you get a car that meets your vehicle requirements.


What are your options?

Rent a car

You’ll be able to drive the car as if it’s your own, while the rental company retains ownership. You can pay a fixed rental amount for the term of the lease period, and you may be able to find a variety of rental plans to suit your lifestyle and needs. If you haven’t committed to full time driving yet there may be part-time rental options available.

Rent-to-own a car

If you’re ready to commit to the Uber or rideshare lifestyle and want to work towards owning your own car then this option could be for you. Look out for features including buyout options and incentives for driving more.

To help get you on the road sooner, Stratton has partnered with Splend, a market leader in providing vehicle and support services to people wanting to work with Uber.
