Taking or updating your car's profile photos

Short answer:

Having clear and attractive photos showing your car from all sides and the interior helps to attract bookings. Photos can also show your boot space, child seats or any other extras you offer. Upload new photos for your car's profile at any time through the app or website.

Tips for taking a great photo

Primary photo

  • Make sure your car is looking its best - try to take the photo just after it's had a wash
  • If your car is normally parked in a garage or tight parking space, move it out to the street or a more open area to take the photo
  • Take the photo in landscape (with your phone held sideways) rather than portrait orientation
  • Centre the car in the photo with a little space above and below the car so it displays well on all screen sizes
  • Take the photo from the front corner of the car to show as much of the car as possible
  • Check your lighting - avoid too much glare or a dark photo (the best lighting for photos is generally early-mid morning and late afternoon)
  • Make sure your car is in focus and the photo isn't blurry
  • Avoid having other cars, rubbish bins, or other objects in the photo - if you can, look for a great backdrop like a colourful wall, the beach or a green park

Additional photos

  • Take photos showing your car from each side
  • Borrowers want to see the interior too: show the front and back seats (or if you have a car with 6+ seats, show all of the seating)
  • Include photos of the boot, as Borrowers often want to know how much they can carry. Place a common item like a suitcase or shopping bag in the boot to give Borrowers an idea of how much will fit

You could also add photos to:

  • Show the dimensions of your van's cargo space - use a photo editing tool to add the measurements over the photo, or place a common item like a moving box in the back to give Borrowers an idea of how much will fit
  • Show any child seats you keep in your car
  • Show any extras you offer, like blankets, a trolley or shopping bags

Good profile photos

Good angle, clear background and good lighting

Use additional photos to show the car's boot, interior, special features and extras like child seats or ropes.

Not so good profile photos

Too dark - bring your car out of the garage and take the photo with the sun behind you

Too much glare - avoid taking the photo in the middle of the day when the light is harshest, or choose a shady area with even light

Bad angle - drive your car out of a tight parking space into an open area
