Every month, thousands of Kenyans struggle to make ends meet. With electricity, water, food and petrol costs soaring, people are looking for ways to make extra money to make life a little easier. Kerb is one of these new ways. 

So how does it work? It’s a bit like ‘Airbnb for Parking’: homeowners can rent out their spare spaces to make extra cash – and drivers can use the app to park more easily and more cheaply. Kerb changes the conventional view about where people can park their cars, motorbikes, boats and even helicopters! Kerb’s technology unlocks empty spaces across the world’s busiest cities, helping individuals, businesses and governments save time and money.

Australian Parking App launches in Kenya to help you make extra money!

Think about the place you live in. Every time you get into your car or onto your motorbike to go to work, you are freeing up a parking space which could potentially be used by someone else. And when you arrive at your destination and start looking for parking, you could just as easily park in a private parking space belonging to an individual, a small business or store, or even a hotel or church.

Kerb leaser, Nancy Ouma says, “I have found KERB to be an awesome way to make use of my car space when I’m not parking my car there! The app is user-friendly and makes the whole process super-easy. The staff at KERB have great communication, too! There’s no downside to using KERB and I recommend it to all of my friends!”

Kerb also offers a car park management solution which lets churches and schools use their car park to fundraise, allows universities and shopping malls to better manage their parking, and enables businesses to put their car parking spaces to work and generate extra cash. Residential committees even use Kerb to monitor visitor parking spaces and manage the allocation of parking spaces in apartment buildings.

Kerb Co-founder, Rob Brown says, “Governments love Kerb because it reduces congestion and environmental impact by getting cars off roads, makes use of existing infrastructure – and means more money for locals to spend in the economy.”

Kerb parking spaces start at KES 300 a day, depending on where they are located. Those who list their parking space with Kerb use the extra cash on anything from house deposits to holidays, or their kids’ school or university fees. The app isn’t just for parking cars either – Kerb is also for renting and leasing spaces for motorbikes, boats, trucks – even helicopters…

Kerb launched in October 2016 and is live across the world in 19 languages and localized in 300 cities. “We’re really excited about the benefits that Kerb is going to have for users”, says Co-founder Rob Brown. “The app allows you to list an entire car park up in minutes, and each individual bay can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.”

Kerb is free to download on iOS and Android – just search by ‘Kerb’ in the AppStore or Google Play. Then you are just a few clicks away from booking convenient and affordable parking – or making cash out of your unused parking space. If you don’t want to install, Kerb is also available on the web (www.kerb.works).

If you’re envious of your neighbours paying off their mortgage earlier or going on great holidays because they list their home on Airbnb – this could be your easier, greener way to cash in on the sharing economy!
