While not everyone has the money to pay rent for a rental shop, almost every person in Taiwan owns a scooter. With just one scooter you can start your rental business without the need to bear the reoccurring costs of paying rent at a physical shop location. This is the beauty of technology and what makes SKRT so cool. Start small, grow big.

Across the world we see an archetype of immigrant entrepreneur that leaves the comfort of their home to embark on a journey towards financial freedom in a foreign land. This is Saar, he left his home land of Israel to build a food and beverage business in Taipei. His grit and determination has fueled a successful vegetarian restaurant in Taipei called "Falafel King"; some say it's the best falafel in the country! Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit, once Saar heard about SKRT he thought, "why not share my scooter while at work and earn some extra income on the side?" Saar did just that, and has been able to earn up to NT$ 9,000 per month sharing his SYM - enough to cover the costs of renting his room in Taipei. Saar is able to drastically reduce the cost of his living by sharing his scooter on SKRT. Are you ready to be like Saar and become financially independent and live on your own terms? Start by listing your scooter and join the SKRT community today!
The average price of a home in Taipei is up to NT$ 25 Million. This is unattainable for the average person considering the minimum wage is only NT$ 25,000 per month. Even with the high valuations of the average home in Taipei, the average rental income for a one bedroom is only around NT$ 23,840. That means even if you could afford to buy a home in Taipei, it would take over 87 years of rental income to pay back the original investment.
Now consider the case of buying a scooter. A new scooter ranges in price from NT$ 30,000 to 60,000 at an average of NT$ 45,000. A new scooter on the rental market can earns an average of NT$ 550 per day. That means that a scooter utilized on the rental market for just 15 days per month can earn NT$ 8,250 per month or NT$ 99,000 per year, making for a very attractive return on investment! This of course becomes especially intriguing when compared to high cost and minimal returns of the housing rental market.
In less than a year, your scooter can pay for itself on the rental market.
Did somebody say free scooter?
Once the scooter is paid for, just sit back and collect all profits on your initial investment and decide when is the best time to sell your scooter or just keep raking in those rental yields.
