The ClaimShare Cooperative was founded by veteran Turo host William Huffhine who built and managed a Turo fleet of vehicles in the Detroit metro area, beginning in 2018. His Turo business was featured in publications such as the Detroit Free Press, Business Insider, and the Turo corporate blog. William became a "go to" person for the public relations team at Turo corporate when media assistance was needed to counter government and airport initiatives that would have done harm to the host community.
William spent 30+ years in the corporate world serving in business development roles for most of the major print and digital media companies around the country, as well as a few smaller, locally owned companies. In the last decade of his career he served in senior level leadership positions before retiring to manage his Turo fleet and build other businesses.
In addition to the four businesses William now owns that serve the CarShare host community, he also works as a Franchise Development Manager for the world's largest travel company. In this role he assists men and women with opening their own travel agency franchises.
The ClaimShare Cooperative was founded in 2022 to address one of the most challenging pain points for fleet managers in the carshare industry. Damage deductibles. This issue alone takes money out of business owner pockets every time a damage claim is processed and the deductible is applied, but also by causing many hosts to remain on lower paying protection plans, with lower deductibles, to avoid out of pocket expense.
The idea for the ClaimShare Cooperative is not new. For many decades families without medical insurance have participated in similar cooperatives that reimburse them for medical bills that would otherwise be financially devastating.
The Cooperative was launched for one reason, to help business owners in the carshare industry to earn more from every booking, and keep more of what they earn when their vehicle is damaged.
The CarShare Academy is one of four entities in CarShare Nation (currently being incorporated as an LLC in the state of Michigan).
