Advantages of Car Sharing

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 by Polycorp

Living in your walkable Halifax NS new condo community will have its benefits.  For one, you won’t have to constantly depend on a car to get around.  For the occasions when you do need a car, you can use car sharing.  Though a new concept to some, car sharing is a growing phenomenon that has a lot to recommend it.

Car sharing has many advantages.  It’s a cost-effective alternative to owning a car. You’ll save money by not having to make car payments, pay insurance or worry about repairs and maintenance.    You’ll have more money to perhaps put back into the community, purchase something for your condo in Halifax NS or save for a rainy day.

Car sharing is good for the environment as it encourages the use of bicycles or public transit, thereby reducing the number of vehicles on the road.  When you walk or bike, you’re getting exercise, which definitely contributes to better overall health.

Fewer cars on the road will lead to reduced congestion and reduced wear and tear on the roads.  Fewer old cars will go into the landfill.  Less carbon dioxide will be emitted into the atmosphere, making the air you breathe cleaner and fresher.  Overall you’ll be able to feel good about reducing your carbon footprint and maybe even helping to slow climate change. 

Consider car sharing to save money and help the environment.  It’s ideal for residents needing access to a vehicle without having the responsibility of owning one.  Or maybe your household can go from two vehicles to one – wouldn’t it be great to shed the burden and expense of owning a second vehicle?  CareShareHFX is a car sharing company located near Q Lofts, an upcoming new condo in Halifax NS on the corner of Roberts and Agricola Streets.
