The photos and images uploaded by Los Angeles residents of the wildfire make the city look like a hellscape. Some have lost everything, and many have already been evacuated from their homes. If you’re looking to help out and have a car, then Turo might be able to hook you up.
In a blog post published yesterday, the company announced that people can rent out their cars on Turo for free to evacuation victims that need them. All the evacuees need to do is buy the protection package. And how will Turo tell actual renters apart from people who just want a free car?
A Turo spokesperson clarified via email that the company cross-checks their zip with the zip codes of the areas that are under evacuation due to the fires in Southern California. Those who have been evacuated and need a car are encouraged to reach out to Turo by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
