What should I do if a Borrower does the wrong thing?

What to do

If you're put out by a Borrower who breaks the rules you will be compensated, as long as it is reported to us.  

If you are inconvenienced by a Borrower, please:

  • send them a gentle reminder to ask them to fix the problem and, if this doesn't work;

  • take photos of the issue and email these to members@carnextdoor.com.au. 

You can also give them a 'thumbs-down' review, which will block them from booking your car again.

Contact the Borrower

If you are inconvenienced by a Borrower, or just feel uncomfortable about how they have used your car or their behaviour, your first option is to have a chat with them. Many issues can be resolved by a text, email or phone call.

If you don't feel comfortable contacting them directly, or if you need our help, call or email us so that we can take it up with them and if necessary fine them and compensate you.


Fees apply for example, if the Borrower leaves the vehicle in an unacceptable state, returns the car late�, or incurs parking or speeding fines. (See "What to do if a borrower gets a fine").

We pass part of the fee on to you, to compensate you for the inconvenience, and use part of it to cover our admin costs in dealing with the issue. 

Community standards 

We want to:

a) create a good community of Borrowers who Owners can trust, and

b) ensure that you to feel properly compensated for any extra effort you are having to put into sharing your car.
